Work schedule
Emcor was pretty decent as far as salary is concerned, but the particular position that I held was almost impossible to allow anyone to have any kind of life outside of the job. I worked on an old constantly rotating Navy/submarine shift that ran from 6am to 2pm for two weeks -a week consisting of 7- 8 straight days, 1 day off, then rotated from 2pm to 10pm for three weeks with week being seven straight days- three days off , and then from 10pm to 6am with some weeks consisting of 8-9 straight days before a day off. I had no life other than work. When offered the position through an inter- company transfer those of us who accepted were promised a suitable schedule change that never happened within the 5 plus years that I worked there. Every schedule we and our Union offered was turned down, not because those schedules didn't meet the work schedule criteria demands, but simply because the Supervisor didn't like them and did not want to change the existing schedule. That schedule resulted in nearly all of the original transferring personnel eventually either quitting or being terminated due to being unable to work that schedule.

Job benefits are great.
The most enjoyable part of this job was in serving the customers solve their work related problems. Management was very supportive in providing the tools and instructions need to be successful on this job.
The hardest part of job was dealing with angry customers.


What I learned was how to control my emotions when dealing with others.

Good spot
I worked as a mobile mechanic, the people were good, the pay was good, my boss was good, but dispatch team needed a lot and I mean a lot of work with common sense. Good people as well dont get me wrong, but man did they not know how to send a work order out to the right person (talking about distance). Overall though, if you know basic trades then this is the place for you, if you're learning then maybe not. Honestly I miss it here, just needed something stationary that's all

Unethical management. Severe Nepotism
Managment was grossly negligent and unethical. Intenionally sabotaged numerous employees because of insecurity. Nepotism was extensive. Not an envrioment you will be challenged or feel supported in. They seek complacent employees, satisfyed by a good salary wage.

Micro managing
Micro managing is really bad here. You feel as if all eyes are on you if you get up from your desk. If you leave 1 minute early for lunch you better be back 1 minute before lunch is over. You have to pay money to wear jeans on Friday. This place isn’t good with communication. Temps aren’t allowed to make up hours missed.

Overall the job was ok and i would recommend the job to anyone.
Well, the most enjoyable part of the job was the hours and the work was overall pretty easy, the culture was all for one and whatever was needed was given. The hardest part of the job was dealing with supervisors who did not know how to give direction as needed.
Pros
The hours and the people that worked inside of the building.
Cons
Dealing with supervisors who dont really know how to give direction.

Emcor provided a good work life balance for individuals with children and the flexibility needed to juggle both lifestyles. Emcor offers a very competitive compensation and benefits package for contractors.

I don’t want to revhew
I would not recommend this company to females. They do not treat them fairly and regularly like to employees. Until there is a change in management, it is not a good place to work.

EMCOR is a good company to work for. They pay very well, but people are being laid off due to the company not doing well. There's no room for CAREER ADVANCEMENT.
Pros
Great employees and wonderful support staff
Cons
Paper towels and plates are no more provided in the kitchen.

Zero Job Security
Your job security is only as good as the stability of the contract you are assigned to.

In this case, it was "always look over your shoulder".


Good people were terminated and were not advised why.
Pros
Work life balance was generally pretty good
Cons
Extremely high benefit rates; untrustworthy management

Contract ending
