Interesting job with great pay and benifits.
Apprentice/Mechanic (Former Employee), Birmingham, ALJune 21, 2014
Pros: excellent pay and benifits.
Cons: always traveling and too dangerous.
Learned to work as a team and also learned the basics of several trades such as plumbing, electrical, hydraulics and many others. The management as well as my co-workers were easy to work with and always willing to help if problems were encountered. The Heavy lifting was the toughest part of the job. It was worth it though not to have to climb the stairs everyday.

No stability
Elevator Mechanic (Former Employee), San Francisco, CAFebruary 1, 2013
Glad I have the experience. But the union has changed since being in it for 16 years. The schooling has really messed things up as far as Mechanics go. So there is no stability. Plus the market has everyone scrambling for jobs. Lay offs and some helpers and mechanics will never work in this field again.

To build and maintain an elevator or escalator with pride, while implementing all safety procedures available to me as well as my co-workers.
Elevator & Escalator Mechanic (Former Employee), Northern VirginiaSeptember 25, 2012
Pros: taking pride in my work and knowing that it is safe and will be in operation for many years to come!
Cons: dealing with the elements, snow rain, wind, cold and heat while still producing a quality product.
To unload a brand new elevator from a truck still in pieces and boxes, dealing with the elements and many other obstacles, to riding the elevator 3 weeks later is an accomplishment that is overwhelming beyond expression. A very strong sense of accomplishment.

nepotism is the norm as far as work and training
Elevator Constructor (Former Employee), Boston, MAMay 17, 2012
Pros: there were some good points
Cons: the bad points outwieghed the good ones
A lot of potential if the union could focus on core values. Some members are good everyday people while others feel they are entitled.

Fast paced, Extremely Challenging on all levels
Apprentice (Former Employee), Lanham, MDApril 21, 2012
The elevator trade union is made up of various companies and over 1000 union members. This trade is great for any individual who is strong of heart, body, and mind. It is extremely fast paced and very challenging both mentally and physically. It brings with it great benefits and and many rewards. Opportunity for advancement is limited only by ones self and what you are willing to put into your own career. This is not a field to get into if you are not wanting a career!
