High school politics all over again
Corporate. (Former Employee) –  Deerfield Beach, FLJuly 28, 2018
Where did all the grownups go? Very clique-ish. Office politics made my stomach churn. No room for promotion. Pays less than national average even when you have necessary experience.
Pros
Hour lunch
Cons
Overtime

Fast Paced
Counter Sales (Current Employee) –  Corpus Christi, TXJune 25, 2018
If you are an excellent multitasker and like a fast paced environment, this job is for you. It's challenging during the peak season and can be quite stressful.
Pros
Overtime available in the summer season
Cons
Can be quite stressful and 'ok' health benefits.

Poorly ran branch
Delivery Driver (Former Employee) –  Winston-Salem, NCMay 21, 2018
The work isn't hard at all, but...... The way the day to day operations are handled is chaotic. There's no structure in delivery planning, there's no communication between sales people and management, customer request aren't passed on to delivery drivers so you're left to "assume" which order to run your route. I can honestly say this was one of the most poorly ran companies I've ever worked for. If you're looking for a paycheck and not a career then it may work out for you.
Pros
Easy work
Cons
To many to list

Competitive Corporate Culture
Territory Manager (Former Employee) –  North CarolinaMay 2, 2018
Senior management seem to be more focused on their short strategies and goals for self promotion with no vision for long term objectives and sustained profitability. Saw a number of bone head decisions being made by inexperienced young executives in positions where they were not qualified to make decisions. See a definite decline in interest to maintain valued relationships with long term customers.
Pros
Its a pay check
Cons
Culture is more focused on the efficiency rather than quality.

Gemaire
Counter Sales/ Delivery Driver / Warehouse worker (Former Employee) –  Winston-Salem, NCNovember 2, 2017
This is not a good place to work! PERIOD! Managers need training in every aspect. The culture of this company is unjust and unfair. worked at two locations and they were both the same.

It's a great place to work. If you know a lot about ACs and units and this is the job for you. They treat you very fair and the management knows what they're doing.

hard work great customers
Warehouse worker/delivery and xpress pickup leader (Former Employee) –  Tampa, FLAugust 8, 2017
Gemaire is always moving and always changing. During the four years I was employed there I worked for three different managers. people are always coming and going and there seems to be a problem with stability. I enjoyed working there over all because of my customers. They made all the difference to me. I worked hard and went the extra mile for them and they respected me for it and we all created and maintained a positive and enjoyable work environment for all.
Pros
great customers, one hour break, pto and central location.
Cons
expensive benefits, changing management constantly, and low pay(compared to surrounding warehouses).

Very fast paced and sink or swim
Management Trainee (Former Employee) –  Richmond, VAJuly 26, 2017
Gemaire was a very busy hard place to work where you had to keep up at all times and make sure the customers got what they needed. Despite this, the manager went out of his way to make sure things stayed fun when they got too stressful.
Pros
Fast paced and never boring
Cons
Childish customers

For the amount of work you do they do not pay as they should. They expect a lot more then what is listed in your job description. they over work their employees.

Company with lots of potential
Territory Manager (Former Employee) –  Carrollton, TXJanuary 22, 2016
Great coworkers, very good place to work if you are given a great territory. Product could be hard to sell at times given the competitive nature of the HVAC industry. Pricing was not always the best.

A Money Making Toy for the owners
Branch Manager (Former Employee) –  Jacksonville, FLOctober 8, 2013
It's a typical modern day corporation. That means, low pay, minimal raises, reduced benefits, ridiculous goals and a lot of smoke and mirrors. I took one of their branches from $3M to $10M in 3 years and they just couldn't shake out more than $42k a year. They use internal auditors to find errors in policy that then are used as justification to not give a bonus. I remember having invested in the company stock to be "a real part of the company". A few months later when stocks had gone up, a new addition to the board dumped their stocks causing many of us to lose quite a bit. That was much appreciated.
