    I knew a couple guys that worked for Atco. Very decent pay and the company seemed interested in investing in their employees.

    I used to work there a few years ago, but was a Meter Reader and their Management sucked ass back then. But gotta admit there were some nice ladies who worked in the Main Office (11th AVE).

    The pay is good. But you gotta deal with crap that is worse than being a letter carrier. Most of the times, the meters are in bad areas and sometimes you can't even see (most of the times you can just give up tho). Its just repetitive and can be back breaking work.

    I mean management, were lazy bums, they didn't know they were talking about and sometimes we joke about them saying that they were talking about stuff they know nothing about other than what their secretaries typed on the speech.

    You shouldn't reconsider since I worked there more than 2 years ago, since it should have changed hopefully for the best. Since, everybody has a difference in opinion so you even might like your managers.

    You can get overtime in some areas, but in my area you don't unless you talk to your supervisor first...and a valid reason for overtime.

    Raises, is standard practice like every company.

    I never though of them that reward people for hard work, there are times they pick people who can use the company van thats about it.
