Suggestions for improvement

  • More benefits if possible. Maybe make 1 or 2 workers supervisors or managers and give them a clear cut role and duties. Use of smartphones or tablets for job orders and parts lists would be ideal.

What I like about the company

Good place for experienced and entry level electricians. Lots of work, good mix of residential and commercial jobs. Will get 40 hours per week, owner is very down to earth and creates a fun environment.

What I dislike about the company

Nothing to say that's bad. Lack of good benefits and paid time off, but its not a surprise; you are told this before you're hired. Business is growing.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Again there's not much to dislike. The job is straightforward, employees are friendly

What I like about the company

Learned many things relating to National Electric Code rules and regulations. Learned good business practices and better, neater and safer ways to wire and install electrical wiring and equipment.

What I dislike about the company

It's a great place to get experience in the Electrical field. Steady work but not overwhelming. Nothing to dislike other than as a person you may want to move up to better opportunities.

  • Offer benefits and other things like vacation, if possible.

What I like about the company

Great owner that is more than willing to train and do anything to make sure you're a great Electrician.

What I dislike about the company

Maybe offer overtime as an option, but then again set hours are great too.

  • Some benefits if possible, as well as vacation time based on tenure. However, this is a small company so the lack of benefits are clearly told to you upon before you're hired.

What I like about the company

I was able to land a job here quickly after studying Electronics and Electricity in college. The owner is a great electrician and does very clean and professional work. He also is a great teacher regarding electrical work: he taught me a great deal of wiring, safety, professionalism, troubleshooting, installing, and customer service skills. Some of this I learned in college or previously in the HVAC field, but he took it a step further. Definitely a great place for entry level electrical work, and he also understands if you plan to use the experience working here to get a bigger paying job or start your own company.

What I dislike about the company

The other employees are good electricians as well. Occasionally older electricians that the owner worked for will come help with jobs, and their knowledge is great. Sometimes though, they aren't as willing to help. They're never rude or never give wrong information, but just stuck to themselves.

  • Overall a very good company, and the owner takes everyone into consideration individually.

What I like about the company

Was hired after graduating Industrial Electronics program, with minimal on the job experience. Owner is VERY knowledgeable regarding Residential and Commercial Electricity, NEC compliance/knowledge, installations, sales, and repairs. He was willing to teach me everything about working in the field, even though I expressed wanting to eventually get licensed and work on my own. Does alot of new home installations and remodeling jobs, change-outs, and repairs. Takes on several jobs at once locally and out of town some, so traveling within 60-75 miles is occasionally necessary. Always Monday-Friday, 7 to 8 AM start time until 3:30 to 5 PM. Does not give overtime or keeps it to bare minimum if needed, but hours and days are always steady, even when working out of town. Small company so you feel like you can talk to your boss and co-workers about anything, and you're all friends. Work can be demanding and challenging at times, but also a very laid back yet safe work environment.

What I dislike about the company

Nothing really. When you work for a company, small things like commute time to work are acceptable.
