Suggestions for improvement

  • Nothing comes to mind at the moment. There are things that could improve in the building where my department is, but it doesn’t happen.

What I like about the company

Great benefits and fair treatment. Bonuses and yearly raises. Cost of living increase when available

What I dislike about the company

The lack of growth and no overtime.

  • Would like to see more help with tuition and remote training.

What I like about the company

I was hired with nearly no experience and given the chance to learn and adapt to the job. My training and school is paid for by the city and I'm close to completing a globaly recognised certification that was completely covered by my employer.

What I dislike about the company

They expect high education obtained from college or vocational school and the wage is below national average for the respective positions.

  • Pay needs to be rescheduled and tiered. A level 1 technician with a minimum 5 years experience or associates degree in field is on the same pay level as an entry level operator with no training.

What I like about the company

Was offered a job with little experience. They felt I could learn the job and put faith in my basic abilities and growth. The other technician has helped me personally with hands on training and off the clock training. Really stable job and they match your retirement 3 to 1 after 10 years of service and pay for all certification and training and travel expenses.

What I dislike about the company

The pay raises are low and of a standard amount. Higher level jobs take alot of college and minimum bachelor level degrees to attain. Not alot of room for advancement in current position.

  • My position is nowhere near the wage it should be at or start at considering the electrical hazards and sheer amount of technical knowledge required to perform the job. If they required technical college completion for my position then the wage would need a definite higher starting wage then the current wage.

What I like about the company

They give me freedom to work remotely and travel in my work van to complete jobs without constantly looking over my shoulder. I have a voice and can share opinion or knowledge or receive from other guys I work with. Paid holidays off and they observe and respect the holidays and We get a cost of living raise almost every year to compensate for wage disparity from living expenses.
