Date: Sep 6, 2022

Location: Hicksville, NY, US

Company: PSEG

PSEG offers a unique experience to our more than 12,000 employees – we provide the resources and opportunities for career development that come with being a Fortune 500 company, as well as the attention, camaraderie and care for one another you might typically associate with a small business. Our focus on combatting climate change through clean energy technology, our new net zero climate vision for 2030 and enhanced commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion; and supporting the communities we serve make this a particularly exciting time to join PSEG. With our reimagined workplace, we recognize the importance of flexibility in terms of when and where employees perform their jobs.  And many of our jobs do not require you to live in the tristate area.

Consistent with our core commitment of safety, PSEG has made the decision to require all new hires to be fully COVID-19 vaccinated as a condition of hire.  "Full vaccination" is defined as two weeks after both doses of a two-dose vaccine or two weeks since a single-dose vaccine has been administered.   Anyone unable to be vaccinated, either because of a sincerely held religious belief or a disability can request a reasonable accommodation.

The selected candidate will have an opportunity to be promoted within the career path during an annual review.
