Great company with Excellent pay, benefits, and true "team work" values
Service Technician (Current Employee), Lees Summit, MO – June 2, 2014
Pros: pay, benefits, steady work, working from laptop
Rogers Electric is a company you can honestly plan on retiring from. I leave the house every day but don't feel I'm working. The organization, from corporate down to each division office, is comitted to great customer service and a safe work environment not only for the customer but each employee. Every one works as a team to accomplish the same goal. Even – more... though the company is one of the largest in the US, it maintains the feel of a small family owned business but with the added bonus of great benefits, which are a company truck,fuel card, credit card, great pay, increased pay for night work, vacation, personal time off, medical, life, and dental insurance, 401k, furnished laptop, cell phone, and digital camera, and that's not to mention the safety equipment and tools the company provides. Each tech works remotely and reports to their division office via laptop so there's no need to drive your own vehicle to the companies shop which is an added benefit. If you have the experience, a great customer service attitude, maintain a safe work environment, and the team player attitude, this is the place to be. All others need not apply because we are the best of the best. – less
Service Electrician (Current Employee), Kansas City, MO – May 29, 2014
Pros: work vehicle, supplies, great paying, work conditions ( inside 99%)
Cons: sometimes you can live far from the office you work for
Its a very rewarding work place. Its always changing. It is a top paying company in this field. At times they let you work as much as you can but they never force it. RIght now we are doing a big out of town project and they will fly you home or let you drive home when you need to, it definitely keeps moral up. The management is great, always positive – more... and mindful of the employees needs. When you go above and beyond they always notice. Ive worked for other companies and Ive never been taken care of this well. Great Work Vehicle, Great Communication, as long as you keep track of you inventory you always have the right stuff for the job. The hardest part of the job is responding to everyone in a timely manner, conference calls and such. Some times you might have a really really long work night, and alot of people dont realise that your sleeping in the daytime and they want feed back. The most enjoyable part of the job is the flexability. They let you take on as much work as you want. Some guys complain about missing out on some jobs, but its only because they have avoided jobs in the past. If your there for Rogers, Rogers is always there for you. – less
Rewarding place to work with opportunity for travel.
Service Electrician (Current Employee), Dallas-Fort Worth, TX – May 19, 2014
Pros: company truck, insurance, paid holidays and vacation. plenty of overtime.
Cons: sometimes it is long hours.
Working here provides many opportunities for growth, learning and advancement in the electrical field. Many electricians find advancement from the field to the office. It is one of the the premier places I have worked. Most of the time there is overtime to be worked. When work slows a little we are usually looking for the break. Over the last few years – more... I don't think we were very slow during the holidays, when most work slows.
When I came on to work here they were offing health, vision, and dental insurance. Vacation, holiday, and shift differtial pay. You will drive alot but you are paid to drive the same as you are paid to work. We work with major retailers during resets, many times we are waiting for them to complete thier task so we can start ours. The work is easy most of it is cookie cutter. It is mostly inside, not out in the summer sun, or the winter snow or rain. The insurance is good, it is also less expensive than the goverment marketplace.
There are not many companies that reward their employees as well. One week vacation after a year, two weeks after two years, and three weeks after five years. – less
Journeyman Electrician (Current Employee), Northeast – May 18, 2014
Pros: company truck, plenty of overtime, talented group of electrcians
Cons: temp helpers
I have worked at Rogers Electric for 18 months. In that time I have gotten to work with a great group of guys that are willing to express there ideas and let me voice my ideas to come up with the best way to complete the job. Rogers Electric is a company that is growing at a rapid pace and has plenty of retail stores they provide service work and reset – more... work too. With so much work to be completed the company is willing to get you licensed in as many states as possible. The company pays for any exspense that is incurred with your license. The company also gives you a vechile to use to get to the job and home. They pay for the gas, highway tolls, hotels or anything else that is job releated. Working for Rogers Electric is like being my own boss everyday, they assign me work to complete and I orded my material and do the job my way. As long as the job gets completed in a timely manner and is to the NEC I won't hear from the boss. – less
Service Electrician (Current Employee), Northern California – May 17, 2014
Pros: pay, overtime, company vehicle, knowledgable service managers
I have been with Rogers Electric for almost a year.
If you ask them for overtime to get a little extra $$ in your pocket they will oblige you quickly! Most of the year there is more than enough work available.
I was really impressed with this company over the holidays when things slowed down a bit and the dispatchers worked hard to keep all of us – more... as equally busy as possible so no one went without work.
Rogers provides a vehicle for work use, and they provide gas and all required maintenance.
At Rogers you will encounter a wide variety of electrical tasks, keeping your skills fresh.
Safety is a Top Priority at Rogers, and all PPE is provided.
The office staff is also quick to help out whenever they are needed. Accurate Paychecks always arrive on time. – less

Lighting Technician (Current Employee), Alpharetta, GA – May 15, 2014
Pros: everything is provided to you without having to come out of pocket for expenses
I've been employed here for 8 years and over that time I have had no shortage of work, Rogers has implemented a top notch safety program that allows me to work comfortable and at ease. Good management in place that help me get what I need on the job site or any other help with regarding my job. I never once had to wait on my pay check to come in and – more... if there ever was an error in my check they took care of it as soon as they were made aware of it. Company provides work truck (that I can take home), gas card, laptop, company credit card, work phone, hotel card and pay out per diem (if I need to stay out of town). All they provide keeps me from having to use my own money. Over all a great place to work! – less

Journeyman Electrician (Former Employee), Atlanta, GA / Houston, Texas – April 1, 2014
Cons: poor leadership skills, liars
I'm a former employee. In the beginning they treat you well, if they don't like you, you will be gone fast ! Worked 11 months for them, the first In Hoover, Alabama then I was sent to Houston. When the job was completed, Edd Bass ( head over construction projects and Safety ) talked with me telling me he had a job for me in Oklahoma City but would be – more... 2 months away so I collected unemployment in the waiting ( got to pay bills..right ) all was good. Well, the Oklahoma job didn't come through ( he put others on instead ) Edd tells me he has another project I will go on, just wait a little longer ( I did )..
One day my unemployment was cut off because Rogers Electric filed to them I voluntarily quit my job in Houston (??) All the while they still had me down as an employee with them on the waiting list for my next project. Make a long story short, HR did all they could to keep me from getting my unemployment back ( snakes in the grass ) I had to go to a hearing to regain my UE and Rogers lied to have me denied. Now I'm having to pay back all I collected through UE because of Rogers. I talked to friends now working for Rogers about this and they were outraged!
Don't waste your time, especially watch out for the Arizona Branch they have the poorest foremans with no leadership skills at all. GOOD LUCK :) – less
This company thinks their employees are robots and can work 24/7
Service Tech (Former Employee), NJ – February 23, 2014
Pros: company vehicle
Cons: overworked, under paid and dangerous working condions at times.
Overall management needs improvement, company has no loyalty to employees that have been there a long time. A lot of rollouts that require two men are done with one creating an unsafe working condition.
Service tech (Former Employee), MA – January 11, 2014
Pros: not many
I worked there about 5 months. Waited for the things they promised for weeks. Like the company truck I was promised. After about a month I received the truck the interior was discussing and dirty just about every service light was on. It took almost a month to fix the truck they sent me. Worked mostly nights and many times did not have the material – more... needed to do the job. Was on workmans comp and was pulling permits for the company. They ask me to pull a permit in MA. where I am a Journeyman I asked straight out if the permit was in their name they told me yes. Two weeks I almost lost my license when they sent and out of state electrician to do the work. Inspector found many code issues then found out I had not done the work and was very upset at this. So in closing if you consider working for this company be very careful. – less
Accounts Payable Manager (Former Employee), Roswell, GA – November 18, 2013
Pros: benefits, salary and paid schooling
Cons: sometimes too much work load
Constantly had invoices to be entered and bill that needed to be paid. I had full work loads everyday of consistent but tedious work. This company put me threw some accounting school which helped me understand the work I was doing day in and day out. Fun office and great people to work with.
