Electrician (Current Employee), Chicago, ILJanuary 7, 2014
Pros: job security, benefits, retirement plan
Cons: management
Solid place to work job security wise. If you do not know anyone on the inside do not bother applying. Would be a great place if jobs were filled and safety was a real concern for management. Lots of down or in between time can make for a boring environment at times but money is fair and co workers are courteous.
