QUIZ: Should You Work for American Power and Gas?
American Power and Gas is a successful energy company headquartered in Seminole, Florida. For the past 15 years, we’ve provided high quality, low cost electricity and gas to homes and businesses in the eastern United States. Our corporation allows consumers to take advantage of the benefits of deregulation, an increasingly popular setup that restructures the way people get their energy. Traditionally, governmental agencies worked with local utilities to provide electricity and gas, controlling every component, from generation to transmission to delivery. However, recently, some states have been uncoupling energy supply from other services, giving consumers the power to choose where they’d like to get their fuel.
American Power and Gas is an alternative supplier, meaning that homeowners and businesses in deregulated states can switch from their conventional utility system to our affordable, environmentally friendly service. With more and more states passing deregulation legislation, our business is booming, and we’re excited to expand our workforce. As Tampa Bay Newspapers Weekly and the Tampa Bay Business Journal recently reported, we are hiring up to 120 new employees, who will join our current team of 150 in Seminole and collaborate with our 110 Barranquilla, Colombia-based staff members. If you’re on the hunt for a great new job, take our quiz below to find out if you should work for American Power and Gas.

Are you a military veteran?
American Power and Gas has the utmost respect for the talented men and women who have dedicated their time and effort to serving our country. We recognize that military veterans have valuable leadership skills, are goal-oriented, and work well under pressure, so we’re actively seeking former members of the United States Armed Forces for our company. Vice President of Marketing and Public Relations, Andrea d’Agostini, explained this emphasis: “Hiring veterans is one of the best ways we can give back to those who were willing to sacrifice it all, which is why we hire them directly and work with veterans’ advocacy organizations.” However, if you’re not a military veteran, don’t despair—we’re also looking for public civilian applicants.
