I served as a pipefitter/apprentice. My duties included welding pipes, rigging, soldering and brazing copper pipe. Ran equipment such as laws, fork lifts and signaled cranes. Read blueprints and drawings. Ran Pneumatic Tubing.
This company's business model at the time was to sell Tenant Improvements, and other 'new construction' jobs then connect that customer with their Service Department. Good to grow a customer base, but when the market tanked, new construction brought them down.
Working at American Mechanical is a blessing. Everyday I get to learn something new. We have managers that are always willing to answer questions and the owner knows every single employee by name. I walk into work greeted by several good mornings, every morning. Even when they days get busy everyone maintains composure and works through. I would never trade this job. I love my work family.
I have worked for this company for a number of years and I will say that it is the best company I have ever worked for. They are straight forward and they get the job done. They honestly care for their employees like family - honestly that is how I feel about American Mechanical..it is my second home. I feel happy and proud to come to work everyday and when I am asked where I work I always answer with a smile full of pride because in my opinion..I WORK FOR THE BEST.
I love working for American Mechanical. Its less of a job and more like a second family. Our customers come first and we genuinely care about giving them the best experience possible. Our management is very open minded and love to hear our opinions. Pay is great!! Everyone is easy to get along with! There is always work to do so the days move quickly! Overall American Mechanical is by far the best!!
great pay, time off, benefits, relaxed environment
A typical day at AMEC is a roller coaster, no routine, no work flow. Management consists of those who have lied on their employment app's and previous bartenders. The workplace culture is much like high school, a lot of back-stabbing and gossip. The hardest part of the job (in the office) would be wanting to stay in that job. The enjoyable parts of the job would include lunch time and leaving.
Overall, the company is great to work for and I would return in a hot minute. The only caveat to the company is the communication was low and frequently not present. It was difficult to get direct answers at times. Still though, this is a great company and the focus on the employee work-life balance was beautiful.
This place had good pay, the people were easygoing, the boss was engaging and easy to talk to, paychecks came on time, great location, and the job position kept me pretty busy because people always needed help around the office.
Each day was always new and different than the previous. However, the tasks were the same each day. Through the job, I perfected multitasking and organizational skills. My coworkers were generally easy to work with and we would try to work as a team. The hardest part of the job was always dealing with difficult or irate customers, but that was manageable. Management was either over the top or nonexistent and usually indecisive. The most enjoyable part of the job was the pace of the work and the uniqueness of each day.
