Transportation Coordinator (Former Employee) – Santa Fe Springs, CA – June 20, 2017
Manage all day to day activities of the Transportation and Field Service Department. I have learned much with my time here, both positive and negative. This is a fast pace work environment with many challenges. Unfortunately, most of those challenges are the lack of upper management support and limitations of resources to meet the demand.
Management continues to make the same mistakes over and over..
Operations Manager (Former Employee) – Virginia – April 24, 2017
I started work at WS in 2007 as a lead Tech. Every 2 years like clockwork the area business model will change and layoffs ultimately come soon after. At the branch level you could not ask for a better group of people to work with but at the executive level its pure chaos. The business model shift every second of every day with no defined process in place. Executives do not make effective decisions as they only concern themselves with climbing the ladder and impressing whoever will be responsible for their next promotion. When developing new procedures, management never collaborates with the personnel that the procedure affects causing severe breakdowns.
Service Technician (Current Employee) – North Eastern US – February 15, 2017
The management knows very little on how to effectively manage, no micro managing is not the answer. Constantly getting rid of the wrong people. Under paying employees for what's expected and over paying for Temps. There is a huge lack in professional training especially in HVAC and electrical. Work life balance is non existent. Treated like your a child. Company preaches safety and yet still makes employees work in unsafe environments unnecessarily. Leadership is more apt to write you up or get you fired than to help you. No give or take just take, and what have you done for me lately. Won't hire new people to keep up with production. I will say though the people you work right next to everyday become family and help each other out in anyway.
Mostly english speaking, learn alot (what to do and what not to)
Pay, management, over safety orriented, wont take advice and hire more people to keep up with production, lack of proper training

Commercial Driver (Former Employee) – Henderson, CO – July 13, 2016
It's not what you know, it's who you know around there. Supervisors supervising people on jobs that they don't know how to do themselves. Management telling employees that they have to share hotel rooms to save the company money so they can blow hundreds and hundreds of dollars partying. Supervisors telling employees to haul illegal and dangerous loads, stating that they done it a thousand times in other locations so it must be o.k. Being fired for refusing to participate in such activities. Worst place I've ever worked with the absolute least qualified management I've ever seen!
Design Manager (Former Employee) – Dacula, GA – May 22, 2016
Develop and negotiate contracts and fee proposals with clients and consultants. Develop space and needs studies, site designs, and develop preliminary project concepts and master plans. Residential Design Concept to Construction Doc’s Coordinate, manage design and construction documents. Coordinate work of project teams, administer/observe construction, track production costs, and perform job site inspections. Manage multiple deadlines, attend client meetings and presentations.
This company has potential to be a very good company to work for and although I have encountered some very nice people while working there, management as well as higher ups could be very rude to the employees which cause a tense working environment that reminded employees of no sense of job security.
technician (Former Employee) – Houston, TX. – August 5, 2015
Daily safety and production meetings, a high pace environment. For the most part the production and sales teams are great but the lack of leadership affects the work place. There's a high turn over rate for managers.
Inside Sales (Former Employee) – Orlando – June 22, 2015
For the most part,inside sales is a close and productive group. We try to have as much fun as possible while still maintaining a productive work day. I really enjoy communicating with my customers but wish I had more face to face interaction with them. My co-workers are incredible and willing to share any knowledge that has been passed down to them. I wouldn't call it a secure work environment as there have been a lot of cuts made in the past couple of weeks. It is a great company to work for and learn from. I have been very fortunate to have such a strong team behind me.
