Service Dispatcher/CSR (Former Employee) – Grand Prairie, TX – November 7, 2013
If you want to work in a place where you will be bullied, expect to be vastly overworked, have no support, and be taken advantage of at every opportunity, then this is the place for you. they pay well, and the benefits were good, but it is not worth it. I have never worked for management this out of control before, and it is acceptable in the culture for them to be that way. under no circumstances should you ever work for someone like this. They do not value their employees, and they will use you until they no longer need you, then spit you out.
Service Operations / Sales Manager (Former Employee) – Dallas, TX – May 16, 2015
Polk is a great company, prior to me leaving we were Encompass which filed chapter 11. because of Sept. 11th and mistakes Encompass made they laid off hundreds of people. I left due to many people being let go and I was recruited for a better opportunity and money.
Service plumber (Former Employee) – Grand Prarie, Tx – March 14, 2013
Former Grand Prarie service plumber, plumbing service management lacked leadership and management skills at one time we had a stellar group of tech's, but the lack of management imploded that group! Wich was a real shame!
A typical day at my old job would consist of a safety meeting every morning before work. I use to work in the construction field so there would be alot of other trades working around me so safety was very important. Read blueprints and did most of the plumbing at the Methodist hospital.
