Inside Sales (Former Employee) – Garden City, NY – October 19, 2017
good people work their and had a great time but the manager was totally out of line,thought he knew everything and gave no one a chance. Had i knew who he was because his first impression was probably masked i would have never left my old company to work there.
Normal day is scheduled to work on a few repair calls or wire new buildings/homes. work both commercial and private establishments providing electrical services. Assist in helping with layouts of lighting/plugs for contractors.
hour lunch break, extra pay overtime, some side jobs with extra pay
The counter people answer phones and help customers but during downtime (which is substantial since most of the customers are electricians who show up early morning or lunchtime) they do nothing but stand around and gossip when they could be stocking and cleaning the front areas. The warehouse guy is basically the do-all-clean-all-load-all do everything person and is also the lowest paid member of the staff, so if you want to work here, don't do the warehouse job.

INSIDE SALES (Former Employee) – Garden City Park, NY – August 18, 2015
Doing inside sales I would receiving purchase orders from the men in the field, and then place these orders with the various vendors and supply houses. When placing these order I always have to look for the best price where the materials can be delivered to my men in a timely fashion . As a Purchasing Agents the hardest part of the job is to secure the orders from supply houses so that my men have the materials they need to complete the work at the job site. The most enjoyable part of being a purchasing agent is to see the money you have saved the company and the satisfaction of doing a job well done.

see above. He does not keep work for his construction side of the business. Sends electricians to go help his non electrician service guys who change out lights, exits etc. and have no idea what electricians do.
Cooper Electric is productive, however the company has management issues.
Maintenance and Forklift Operator (Former Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – June 7, 2012
An o.k. work environment. I've learned how to use different varieties of forklifts. The management ''needs'' to change, unfair and shows alot of favortism. The co-workers are laid back, helpful and over worked.The hardest part of the job is to get treated fairly by management.
