What kind of career opportunities exist at NV Energy?

Pros

Year round internship, relatively good compensation. Compensation is based on credits in degree program. Currently the pay rate is as follows: Freshmen: $13.13/hr, Sophomore: $15.75/hr, Junior: $19.69/hr, Senior: $23.63/hr. Good flexibility in hours, minimum of 12 hours per week "required" during the school year, with a max of 20, with a max of 40 hours a week during summer and winter breaks. Good opportunity to learn about the electric utility industry, good networking opportunity.

Cons

Job position is a bit random, interviewing interns can express preference of placement, but there are not guarantees. Some positions are not very challenging, and often require the intern to fill their own time. Some interns got stuck doing relatively monotonous tasks, such as moving boxes from one section of a building to another as part of inter office moves, others got stuck doing lots of filing work. At the end of the day, its what you make it. I would advise interested students to try and find another student who currently works here and ask them lots of questions before applying/interviewing.

Advice to Management

There is currently very little incentive for interns to optimize their work output. Why would an individual finish their daily tasks early at the cost of loosing hours? I suppose this problem extends to most hourly employees in many industries. This may be especially the case if their task-load isn't terribly time consuming or demanding to begin with. Perhaps in an ideal situation, there would exist some form of intermediate solution wherein an intern who has completed their tasks for the day could clock out early (with supervisors approval) and split the difference on the time they would have accrued had they instead drawn out the task to fill an 8 hour day. I highly doubt this kind of solution would be adopted by leadership, and instead many students will continue stretch the task to time. All in all, this is a great program and opportunity, keep it up!

Does NV Energy have any sort of mentoring programme?

Pros

The internship program usually begins when your Spring semester ends and lasts till the end of next Spring semester (1 Year). The company rotates your internship between different departments when you reapply for the next year. Some departments had great meaningful work. Very easy-going and professional work culture. They seem to prioritize promoting from within since all of my bosses were also ex-interns from years back. So it looks like there's definitely upwards mobility within this company.

Cons

The internship rotations seems random. For one year, I was placed into a department where I felt like they didn't even needed an intern. Also, meaningful work comes and goes. Sometimes, you will be busy all-day for a week or two, and then all of sudden, there's no suitable intern work for weeks to come. I suspect its because managers require interns for a specific project and once the project is finished, there's no more work for the intern to do. The managers are very hands-off and you are thrown into the deep end to learn on your own.

Advice to Management

This is for the managers: don't ask for interns if you can't provide them with meaningful work for an extended period of time.
