Boss is a good guy.

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Boss is a good guyeveryone in the office is related so that pretty much tells you all you need to know.. Pay is okay, but being based off commission kind of stinks because they don’t want to hire apprentices to help you get the work done faster to hit your goals.

Commission based pay. Work hard. Play hard.

They have consistent leads. You can make great money if you work fast and efficiently. Management is organized and leaves you alone if you're good. They use service titan which is a huge plus. If you want to work here, then find another tech you can get along with and split the big jobs. Company van and gas card. They aren't sticklers about buying materials. If you're making them money then they leave you alone.


Commission pay, company van


Slow season Jan through March, don't spend it all in one place

Some great electricians, but poor management

Most of my time at this job wasn't bad in fact it was pretty great for a time, I made great connections with a handful of really great people while I was there. The worst part was having to spend time in the office, the management was lacking and the dispatcher didn't know her job. The management and 2023 dispatcher showed extreme favoritism towards their more lacking electricians that would flatter them. Management would also ask you to participate in unrelated events outside of operating hours and then be upset if you decline or attempt to guilt you into it. They will treat you great one week and ask if they could clone you and the next after you've declined one of their events they shun you.


As a service tech they provide a really great cooler

Wonderful place to work

For the first time in a long time I don’t dread coming to work everyday. Our office dog Gulia makes that day even better when she is in office and a huge reason why I love working here.

Not a good place to work if you arnt a salesman

I really do not recommend working for this company if you actually care about people they are over priced corporate franchise they literally told me a former worker that they bake 15% on to the price so incase you take the monthly membership that gives a discout of 15% they dont actually lose out anything. Had not given me a pay raise in 1.5 years working there


Paintball once a year


Manager is not a Manager

Great place to work

The pay is good but there are no benefits to this job. A lot of the advertised salaries are based on commission so not only are you an electrician they also expect you to be a salesman.

The Culture and Values

The company/management/owners work to get to know each of the employees, what motivates them and their goals. They support each employee in their goals and help them be "driven to win"! The company has outlined values which align with my own based on Respect, Integrity, and Customer Service, strives to follow them everyday, and expects that from each employee. In electrical service, you get to do different things everyday, meet new people and help customers better understand the electrical system in their home. We GET to make people safer and that's powerful! Great place to work. I wouldn't look anywhere else and I'm not!

Productive, fun, and a great place to learn!

This was my first job as an electrician's helper. Within 1.5 years I was able to do more by myself than any other job I had EVER had! The work was hard sometimes, but the leadership was always on hand to lend a hand and help guide me through the day. They gave me the confidence to succeed! Which I did until covid hit!!!


Constant training by patient people who are always right there with You side by side!!!


No cons!

Dishonest office staff

Company will only deceive if of all jobs they pick and choose what jobs to give you since your commission based they make you wake up at 6am every Wednesday to go over payroll in which the company always cons you about getting paid stay away if you can.


There is no pro


Dishonest all the way around

Great group of guys to work with!

Great group of guys to work with! Fellow co workers make you feel like you are all on one big team. Managers are always available to here out any complaints or suggestions. Overall awesome company.

Ok, but I lived 2 hours away from the central Michigan office, so I had a lot of road time. Fairly low stress, and a nice team.

What is the best part of working at the company?Regular team meetings, uniforms, company truckWhat is the most stressful part about working at the company?Once a week early morning meetingWhat is the work environment and culture like at the company?Very pleasant and positive. A very professional, systemized method to sell electrical servicesWhat is a typical day like for you at the company?Receive your dispatch assignment, travel to the call, evaluate the customer's needs and either perform diagnostic repairs or submit a quote for the requested work. If scheduled, you would stop at a supplier, pick up materials and go to the job.

The Best Job I have had with the Best Employer I have ever had

Keeping in mind independently owned and operated is key. I have met owners of other locations and the owner I work for makes the work environment better by far. We are treated better than fair and sometimes it can feel like the responsibilities you have at work are less than the pay but they do ask you to complete your fair share. They do have an established system in place that you are expected to follow and it does lead to success. This reflects management well because by giving you the resources to succeed and clear instructions on your job responsibilities everyone knows what they are to do or who to contact if you have questions. The culture is amazingly backed by biblical morals and a true sense of teamwork. We do have fun in the process as well.


Pay, Benifits, opportunities


some coworkers do not embrase the set culture

Management is a mess of no communication and and any real planning.

there were few things I could say positively about the company. The owner was probably the only real stand out on a positive side for upper management but due to the majority of the office staff being related, or in a relationship, many deficiencies were overlooked. Top sellers never received a bonus even after a decade or more with the company and the base pay is low with a regular week being between 30-40 hours.


Fuel expenses sometimes covered once a week unless you're in a company vehicle, then it's as needed.


Lack of planning, poor pay, and general disregard of personal life and time if it didn't make the company money.

Pay is pretty reasonable, some days it’s constant phones ringing and other days it’s really slow. Pretty easy to get vacation time off. Management is alright

Decent place to work at. I enjoyed it while i was going to school to become an aircraft mechanic. Would recommend this company if you are into becoming an electrician.

EASILY Best company I have ever worked

Onboarding was smooth, and I got to know the owner and a manager right off the bat. They are "people-focused" and seem to really enjoy what they do. I was introduced to everyone during the team meetings. I really enjoy working with the guys here. Even though, I work on my own in a van 80% of the time. I get to meet a lot of people, and no day looks exactly the same. Service work is pretty easy, with lots of windshield time or time just talking to the customers. The pay & benefits are great! It is based on performance BUT the training plan, resources, and help that I got really helped out. I have no complaints at all.


Pay, culture, benefits, bonuses, leadership, on going education, advancement ability, take home van


Everyday you have your mind right; lots of talking with customers.
