Rewarding Job!

I have been at A&K for many years and can truly say I love my job. It's fast paced, rewarding, and the best part is, we all work together like we're a family! There is room to grow and reach your personal and professional goals!

I have been working at A&K Energy Conservation full-time for more than 30 years

I began my career 30 plus years ago with A&K Energy Conservation. It has been a great ride ever since. I have seen and been places during my career that I would never have had the opportunity to see if not employed at A&K, from the Rocky Mountains to the launch pads at NASA. I started with A&K as a laborer and learned a valuable trade during my career and have become a State Certified Electrical Specialty Contractor during that time. That certification was hard earned and is valuable to both A&K and me. I had considered retirement a year ago but reconsidered and I am committed to staying on board with the company that has become so much a part of my life. My employment at A&K has been both enjoyable and educational. Has everything thing always been perfect, no, but it is never a perfect world.

Pros

If I could go back in-time I would change nothing, and I am OK with that!

Cons

None here, wouldn't change a thing!

A True family-friendly work enviroment

This is a true family friendly work environment. During my time here, there have been plenty of people that have come in and out of the doors here. Some have left happy and some have not. Almost all of the office staff, have been there 10+ years some 30+ years. I think that speaks volumes for the company. The field techs are always traveling or working extra hard to complete the jobs and it seems that Admin is always trying to let them know/ show them that it doesn't go unnoticed.

Pros

See above

Cons

Truly haven't come across any yet - can having to work on Monday be con?

Great place to work where I feel like a part of the team!

I really enjoy working for A&K. I came to the company knowing next to nothing about lighting and have learned so much. If you are willing to learn and do your job there are opportunities for advancement and pay increases. The company is growing and moving forward with the changes in technology. It's exciting to come to work and see what new opportunities lay ahead each day. The employees at A&K have become friends, not just co-workers.

Pros

Management that truly cares about you.

Horrible place to work

This finish won't be in business long. Their constantly losing contracts and fire employees because they can't afford to pay them. Very unorganized, favorite was a big issue.

Great company with an exciting future!

I am very proud to work at A&K. The last couple of years have been challenging and we have come together as a company with a very strong and smart leader and have a bright future ahead of us. I am exciting about the direction the company is going in and all the doors that are opening thanks to managements endless efforts. They work hard to take good care of their employees and offer them great benefits. I am glad to be a part of such a great team!

Fast paced team with lots of opportunities!

A & K Energy has been a wonderful company to work for, I enjoy the everyday task and people here. There is always room for learning and opportunities and I cannot wait to see where this company is going next. The past few years have been challenging for A & K but to watch how the leaders take things head on is amazing and makes me proud to be apart of the team.

Love My Job!

I've been here on and off for three years. I have been given several opportunities for advancement and can truly say that I love my job. We went through a rough patch last year with some toxic employees and poor management. Now that those people are gone, the company has improved so much!! The work is pouring in and everything is running so much smoother! You can really feel the team/family atmosphere now and I can't wait to see where we go from here!

Not a good company to work for.

No opportunities for advancement in pay or position. Company has no communication between departments or between management and employees. Employees are given conflicting directives from management...too many chiefs and not enough Indians.

Too stressful

The management is poor and does not case employees. They would rather babysit the crew leaders and not trust their judgement on the way their job should work.

Horrible, toxic company

This place is a joke! They treat the majority (unless you are a favorite) of their employees poorly. They offer little to no training on the job and then speak horribly to you and talk behind your back when you are not sure how to perform to their standards.

Pros

None!

Cons

backstabbing management, no training, poorly ran company overall!

inconsistent, Used to be family oriented.

During my time with the company I have seen many changes. Use to feel like a family oriented company that cared for employees like family. Now seems like you are just a number on the payroll. Lacking in employee praise and recognition. Travel expectations went from none to 100% with no regard to your family life.( employee would be asked if available to work outside of their normal route but employer would not take no for an answer) Employer was constantly losing customers and accounts

Pros

company vehicle, work independently

Cons

a lot of travel

Very Disorganized

This company hired me as a temp without my knowledge. They needed someone to fill a position until they brought a family member in. Hired people into positions that should not been advanced. If you know someone within the company they will treat you different. Did not train me as they stated they would. Did not run their company as a business but more as a family reunion.

Pros

Good benefits

Cons

Lack of training, computers always crashing, inexperienced management

Never had support

The company never took into consideration what you were going through out in the field and my supervisor had no knowledge of my position. If I had a question or concern we had to work with other technicians to figure things out. The amount of time spent away from home got to where I slept in hotels more than I did my own bed which was told would not be the normal but never changed.

Pros

Pay, other employees

Cons

No breaks, work/ life balance, management

Pros

Cons

Good place to work

The job requires extensive travel and long stays out of town. Great people to work for and with. The pay could be better, but for those starting out in the retro fitting it is a great starting point.

Pros

Willing to train and mentor personel

Cons

low pay for having to have extended out of town work
