Janitor (Former Employee) – Colchester, VT – February 24, 2018
It is overall a great place to work. My boss was very helpful and understanding. He gave me days off when I needed them. I once called in on the day I was working to let him know I wouldn't be able to make it and said it was okay.
Wire department Supervisor (Former Employee) – Colchester, VT – February 12, 2018
As a former supervisor I can say confidently that this business is unsafe (for a variety of reasons, some that Indeed specifically forbids me from mentioning) and a poor choice unless you're desperate. When I got hurt here they didn't even bother submitting an accident report and stuck me with several hundred dollars worth of medical bills. It's rife with silly internal politics and reliant on high- turnover of employees to keep the pay low.
I walked into the company knowing little of electrical. The management was very positive and proactive towards my education of the industry. My co-works were very helpful as well. Even though the company has many branches everyone worked together as a team to better each other not just GMES. This is a career that is always evolving both the industry and the company. Lots of room for growth if you are looking at the big picture. Great benefits. They take care of their employees because GMES does not want employees leaving. Keep an eye for job openings here. They will promote within if you are willing to work. Highly recommended.
