The Engineering Entry Program (EEP) recruits and develops recent college graduates for long-term technical, managerial and supervisory positions within Energy Resources, Distribution and Customer Operations areas of Consumers Energy. The program provides you the opportunity to:
The program consists of two possible paths for you to develop your entry level engineering career. One is a rotational path which consists of four six-month developmental rotations. The second is a New Employment Learning Opportunity path where entry level engineers are hired into a specific position.
Your assignments for either path may include construction, operations, engineering and maintenance project opportunities. An advisory council of managers and other company leaders known as the Engineering Entry Program Advisory Council (EEPAC) determines the rotational program scope and rotational assignment schedules. To help guide in your development, each EEP engineer is assigned a mentor.
The rotational assignments are projects that offer both networking opportunities and meaningful results for the company. Your assignment locations vary throughout Michigan and travel may be required. Upon completion of the 24-month rotation program, you will be assigned a position that balances your personal interest with the business needs of the company.
Federal law and many state laws require employers to make accommodations to disabled applicants and employees where the accommodation does not impose an undue hardship on the employer. For those applicants seeking a position within the State of Michigan, a disabled individual needing accommodation for employment must notify the employer in writing within 182 days after the need is known or should have been known. Michigan law provides that failure of a Michigan employee to properly notify the employer will preclude any claim that the employer failed to accommodate the disabled individual. However, this does not waive an individual’s right under the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, as amended, which sets no time limit for requesting an accommodation nor does it require such accommodation to be in writing.
