HVAC Technician (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – December 28, 2018
It was an ok job .one manager they had was horrible he only wanted certain people to work for him and he could never be straight up he love to try to embarrass you if you didn't know the answer to a question he would ask.
Refrigeration Installer (Current Employee) – Grand Prairie, TX – November 27, 2018
Management seems disconnected from the guys in the field. Often times propping you up for failure and then making a big deal when you do. Pay increases don't happen until you threaten to leave. The guys in the field are good people and are very knowledgeable in the field of work. Much of the work is out of town so it makes having a family life hard at times. Deem also has the weirdest PTO system that I have ever dealt with. You earn it on a quarterly bases and then get paid off the next year for what you don't use making it impossible to save hours to take a summer vacation with your family. You don't have all of your PTO time until the last quarter of the year and by then, if you are like me, you have had to use time throughout the year for sick kids and stuff and you have nothing left for the holidays. Also, almost every other refrigeration company offers premiums for night work but deem does not.
Good guys and fun work environment
Pto, pay raises, lack of premium pay for night work
i found that the technician were under trained for their titles
Lead Install Technician (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – September 26, 2018
I was hired to be a lead install technician and I found that the position which I was hired for was more of a helper position even though the posting and interview process was for a lead install position. Then when I was being let go the said they had to let me go within the 90 days so that it wouldn't be a problem down the road at the time I was to help them get caught up and then I was let go.
My experience at Deem has been tough. Ive been here for a while and things dont change. Management has alot of family that work for the company in our branch and favoritism is heavy. My manager feels that if there arent any problems at home, youre not working enough which i dont agree with at all. I work to live, not the other way around. Im grateful for the experience, but its time for a change when hard work and loyalty isnt appreciated.
they pay for hotel and per diem
always away, never home, overnight work all the time

Startup Technician (Current Employee) – Grand Prairie, TX – August 6, 2018
DEEM has a lot to offer for anyone looking to gain more skill or advance their learning, for all walks of the commercial refrigeration industry. With competitive pay and good benefits. The only way I would leave is for a better opportunity somewhere else.
Technician (Current Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – April 18, 2018
Get it done no matter what. No empathy for life situations that all human beings deal with from time to time. Culture is dog eat dog mentality. Lack of support for field personnel in difficult situations.
Not Happy With Management in Service Contract Department
Lead Service Technician and Installer (Current Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – December 27, 2017
There is poor job coordination; they schedule jobs while they do not have the material to do the jobs. They recently changed the clock-in and clock-out rules to excessive level; you have to contact a certain person every morning and every evening whether the job is done or not as well as giving very specific details about the job. Work orders have to be done every night that include start-up sheets and site-audits at the end of the job.
All in all, DEEM is a great company to work for, just not in this specific departement right now.
Benefits, work van, tools are provided, flexible vacation time/days off, technology is provided (work phone, iPad, and laptop)
Fire Alarm Technician (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – November 13, 2017
Just your standard electrical and mechanical company. Struggled to feel appreciated with where I was at in reference to where I started out and with all the jobs they had me running. Decent pay with plenty of hours though. The trades don't really work with each other on jobs all that much so it's a bit difficult to work sometimes as you're often fighting people in your own company.
Pipe Welder (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – November 7, 2017
was okay place alot of travel great people to work for. money and benefits was real good.had a death in family and they wouldnt work with me over it. Dont much care to talk anymore about this job for the fact my MOTHER passed away and they didnt care to show any kind of concern other than worrying about a jobsite.

One week you get 90 hours and the next 20 hours. After hours calls could come at anytime. Drive time can be 3 to 7 hours of your day. That being said, you are self sufficient. You deal with the office almost exclusively through email. Over 90% of work sites are unoccupied. The employees are all pretty good people and help is only a phone call away if you need it.
