There are approximately 180 regular full-time employees currently working for the Department of Public Utilities.
The best way to compete for employment with D.P.U. is to have, at a minimum, a high school diploma and some formal training. Some jobs require even more education, especially the higher paying positions that have a greater degree of responsibility, such as engineering or supervising.
The Department hires engineers, mechanics, computer programmers and operators, accountants, plant mechanics, line workers, secretaries, meter readers and many others. We look for employees who like people and enjoy meeting, working, and interacting with the public.
Almost every position in our organization requires contact with our citizens and business people.
