Definitely an excellent company if you are looking to start your career in the electrical field.
The Apprenticeship training MKD offers definitely lives up to its name, and with the right dedication, you will be on the path for success.
Just remember:

Show up on time.

Come willing to work.

Have a possitive attitude.

Do these three things, and MKD will take care of you.

Terrible & a trap
These guys care about only themselves. Selfish, and will throw people they don’t like under the bus. They pick favorites & tend to try to get people in trouble

Toxic Work Environment
Highly advise not working here. From my experience, if you're not part of the "clique" you are treated like trash. After leaving the company, I was threatened with a lawsuit and they slandered my name. Do yourself a favor and keep looking, because this is not a place that values their empoyees. Run. And for the record MKD, writing a negative, honest review is NOT illegal, so don't even try it.

Need to be one of the cool kids to work here
Coming in, you better know someone in order to blend in or feel like part of the team. Reminds me of high school, need to be able to drink and hang out with the burnouts in order to be part of the team.
Pros
You get paid
Cons
Performance isn’t what gets you ahead, being able to party will get you further ahead

great opportunity to learn, overal tolerable work experience
Working for Corn Products International via MKD was not bad at all. The people I worked with were nice to be around. The majority of them knew what they was doing, MKD furnished all the required tools and equipment to complete assigned duties in a safe and efficient manner. I would work with MKD any time, any where. The pay could have been better, otherwise, no major complaints.
Pros
knowledgable, proffesional
Cons
inadicate salary

day to day
Day to day work is fine but there is a lot of lack of communication through out the company when dealing with things. They have a tendency to not consider geography when placing people at job sites

Great place to grow with excellent management for the most part.
Could have better compensation. The benefits are typical of the industry. Management is good depending on which project or site you work at.
