Good work place
Low voltage technician (Former Employee), Houston, TXAugust 18, 2015
Pros: alot of work
Cons: only for temps
this is a good place to work but they only keep you temporary at a lot of there jobs for a while.
Next when you get done with a project if they don't have nothing coming you sit at home for a while

This company will find you a good job if you are interested in getting into the low voltage industry. It is not difficult to get hired on as a permanent employee with a company through them.

Great company that provides a bridge to many career opportunities
Recruiter (Current Employee), Houston, TexasJune 5, 2014
Pros: multiple opportunities with large contractors, a great support team, great pay, matching 401k, paid holidays
TradeSTAR is the best company I've ever worked for.

This is a staffing firm but it's not a temp agency. TradeSTAR cares about helping candidates find contract to hire positions with companies that have career opportunities. If an individual was looking for something in the Electrical field or in one of the technology trades like Fire Alarm, AV, Security Integration or Data-comm this would be the place to go. TradeSTAR works for some of the best contractors in the country. Like any field these jobs aren't for everyone.

If you can work hard in a construction environment and keep a great attitude you will succeed in finding a home through TradeSTAR.

I spent almost two decades pulling wire and cable on commercial construction sites or managing the installation of wire and cable. I started out as a helper. When I came to TradeSTAR I left my last employer as a high level manager. I know what kinds of opportunities are out there for the people we talk to every day and TradeSTAR helps position them to start or continue down that path to success. Many of our recruiters and management also come from the field and know first hand what the positions we fill entail and how to prepare our candidates for success.

TradeSTAR also offers entry level training for both fire alarm and voice/data for entry level career seekers. This allows entry level candidates from TradeSTAR to have a competitive edge and prepares them for what they will experience the first few weeks on the job. No one does things the way we do. I encourage everyone to come experience the TradeSTAR difference.

Network Technician (Current Employee), Austin, TXMarch 27, 2014
Pros: great management team, they listen and work with you.
Cons: i have been looking but havn't found any yet.
TradeSTAR is a great company to work for. They have an incredible management team that cares for both the employee and the customer. I have worked for many companies and very few have ever gone the extra mile like TradeSTAR does consistently.

I would recommend this company without a second thought.
