O&M Facilities Technician (Former Employee) – Ashburn, VA – December 29, 2013
A typical day at work was fast paced, technically challenging and people oriented. I learned how to support my customers needs while maintaining the physical building apparatuses. I was tasked to working both with my supervisors, customers, my customers' supervisors and at times without any supervision. I received much support from my coworkers as needed and like wise in return which made it pleasurable to accomplish daily tasks demanded of me. I found it challenging as well as frustrating at times to complete requests due to a lack of funds for supplies needed but with support from coworkers' parts stock I was still able to overcome adversity of most requests. I found that the most enjoyable part of my job was when I could close a ticket because the assignment was completed and the customer was completely satisfied.

Credit & Collections Coordinator (Former Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – September 23, 2017
Johnson Controls was a great place to work. I was with the company for over 5 years. there are several opportunities available to those who want to advance within. the management was was very fair to the employees, they had nice incentives, company holiday events for all employees and their families, they had good health benefits. The workplace was just that, while your there your expected to perform, however they are not a super hard nose Co where you get in trouble if you have a quick conversation with another co-worker.
Quality Inspecting Associate (Former Employee) – West Point, GA – September 22, 2017
A typical work day here was pretty relaxed. I was a Quality Inspecting Associate, so I learned how to observe merchandise for flaws. My manager was tolerable as long as I was completing the tasks I needed to while on the job. The hardest part of the job was keeping up with the line. The most enjoyable part of the job was the interactions with co-workers.
What I dislike is the mandatory overtime. We live at work literally. It's seems like someone is always out on vacation or on medical leave. If not that, then we have to cover open positions. We work continuous 12 hour shifts (14 hours for supervisors) meaning 4 days one and 3 days the next with every other weekend off. Pretty much whenever someone goes on vacation that's 7 days straight of work (I'm on my 11th day of working). I really dislike working in lead. We have to wear respirators when on the production floor. Your clothes stay at work. Blood drawn once a month to check lead levels. Very lean company when it comes to spending. Very old fashioned when it comes to process, which most are outdated. The environment is really rough.
Systems Technician (ST) (Former Employee) – Windsor, CT – September 21, 2017
This company could be great if it was not so cut throat and if the Project Managers would teach the technicians better on how the system works. If there was a negative issue with product installation the PM's would point the finger at us the technicians when what really was happening is that they did not train us properly.
Fire Alarm Technician I (Former Employee) – Tampa, FL – September 19, 2017
Company was great to work for. Excellent benefits including low cost insurance and PTO but management at the Tampa office left a lot to be desired. Worked as a Fire/security Tech 1 but manager wanted to micro-manage but had only HVAC experience.
Insurance, other techs, Pto, and best pay in Florida
Lots of training to stay on the cutting edge of changing technology.
System Representative IV (Former Employee) – Glencoe, MD 21152 – September 17, 2017
While working for Johnson Controls training on new products made this company an excellent place to work. The salary was my biggest issue as they did not match the salary to the qualification of the service representatives. The only way to get a significant increase was to leave then come back which in my opinion was not fair to the system representative like myself who remained loyal to the organization. Benefits were good. They provided you a vehicle and all the tools and safety equipment so the service rep is able to perform their duties.
Training, Provide all safety equipment and tools.
salary was not sufficient. Bonuses were scarce for field personnel.
Service Agent (Former Employee) – Houston – September 15, 2017
Johnson Controls is a large corporation with their hands in multiple industries and services. Expectations and routine are never clearly defined and it is hard to cut through corporate red tape to accomplish goals with little support from management. You make great friends however, and your co-workers are some of the hardest working out there.
