Potentially a Great company
worker (Current Employee) –  LouisianaMarch 4, 2019
This company is great, just don't plan on progressing unless you are willing to relocate even though you are supposedly groomed to take the next level up at your location. They will bring in outside people that look better on paper but in reality run the local site in the ground so much that the customer decides to bring in another company all together.
Pros
great benefits
Cons
upper management changes over so fast cannot get proper guidance.

Sacramento location Is Horrablle Poor Managment
Dispatcher (Former Employee) –  Sacramento, CAFebruary 26, 2019
The Emcor Sacramento is the worst People Walk around that office like they are better then others. Upper management allows other employees to belittle and degrade other employees. the fact that management will also participate in gossip is even worse. this location is nightmare. they place blame on everyone but themselves. show favoritism go against company policies. I have never worked for a more dysfunctional company. If there was a - score they would get it in the short time I was there just in the office 6 people left. do yourself a favor and pass this horrid place. wait there was one perk - They allowed drinking on special holidays on company time. Thank goodness I was offered another position for there competition

Avoid at all costs!
Technician (Current Employee) –  Pasadena, CADecember 10, 2018
This is by far the WORST company I have ever worked for. There's a constant revolving door with people leaving and new faces. Most new hires don't stay longer than 6 months. Even the most recent program manager left after just 3 days! Management is extremely cutthroat and constantly playing the blame game and will blast you in emails to all the managers and even some customers as well! Highly unprofessional and hostile work environment. This used to be a fantastic place to work, but not anymore and I'm currently looking because of this. The benefits are utterly useless. And I had also saw in another review that they offer company functions. No. No they don't. Those functions are paid for by the employees. They will lie and cheat you any way they can. We recently got some incentive bebefits that they played off like they offered them out of the kindness of their hearts, but I had found out that because it's a government facility, those benefits were required to give under federal law, not out of the goodness of Emcors hearts. Furthermore, they enable lazy and incompetent technicians and chastise those that actually want to work and do the job right and rarely provide any actual training for certificates in many fields. Even when you ask for training that pertains to your job. Keep looking for another place. Abandon all hope, ye who enter here...
Pros
Cafeterias on site

Mobile Mechanic (Former Employee) –  Cincinnati, OHDecember 9, 2018
This was a good company to work for, but as time went on it just got a little aggravating to work there. So I decided to part ways. For this job I actually took care of bank property as far as light repair small plumbing problems minor HVAC and mean really minor problems. Also vault combination changes and safe box drills and also locksmith duties.
Pros
Good company to work for.
Cons
Management can be a hassle.

Everyday you are assigned a route for maintenance work. Low stress job, low supervision. You mostly work on sites alone, have a company van. Very good job for those who wish to broaden their maintenance experience.
Pros
Good benefits, weekly pay, gas card, low stress.

Work alone mostly, sometimes not enough hours.

Company is too large to feel respected on the bottom
Journeyman Electrician (Current Employee) –  Littleton, CODecember 5, 2018
Not much room for advancement
Empty promises from management
More focused on company growth than employee growth
My immediate coworkers are great but upper management doesn't seem to care too much about the small people, we are just numbers.

Billing Specialist (Current Employee) –  Cincinnati, OHOctober 12, 2018
Good place to work. Lots of room for improvement though. Some decisions have been made without a lot of transparency, but besides that it's not a bad place to make a living.

Facilities Technician (Former Employee) –  St. Louis, MOSeptember 13, 2018
They have very poor in knowledgeable management that will say they care about your quality of life but they don’t. No room for advancement unless you can not do your job and they promote you up. Upper management has very little education in anything in this trade. Very poor attitude from management and seem they only hire people that management has previously worked with. You are denied any chance of promotion if you are a good worker. If your injured on job they push you around to try to sign off from compensation. Worst work environment ever!!

Service Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Lanham, MDAugust 30, 2018
This was a stressful environment based on management. You were treated unfairly based on factors that had nothing to do with your work. Younger generation mistreated and wasn't worth your self respect. Don't even bother to waste your time here

Good pay but poor Mobile Tech management
anonymous (Former Employee) –  Tampa, FLAugust 17, 2018
Working as a Mobile Service Tech was good, the pay was good to start too. But it became apparent over time, that any OT jobs were going to be done by one specifically chosen tech and the Mobile tech manager. It didn't matter whose territory it was located, you most likely were not going to get the OT job. So that was very unfair and just not right.

I believe that the senior manager for our area was not aware of the way that the OT jobs were being assigned. The favoritism made for a bad atmosphere.

EMCOR is also actually made up of multiple company's nationwide, so not everyone hired under the EMCOR name may actually work for them but could go to work for another company under their name too.
Pros
Starting pay
Cons
Unfounded favoritism for OT jobs
