Fire Sprinkler Manager (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – September 15, 2018
Expect management to be a bit out of touch with the services provided as most come from other industries.
This makes for a difficult time from the standpoint of support staff. When support staff is unfamiliar with industry standards, technician pay will suffer both from raises and initial pay. Being short staffed from the point of view of technicians is crucial. It’s ok to have a small field crew, but it’s very important that all technicians are familiar with all areas in this situation. Being a castaway sucks. Just ask Tom Hanks and Wilson.
Expect long work days, which many times are non productive because many jobs are in remote areas where technicians must drive to, sometimes out of state, even though there are existing satellite branches. Much of the profit is eaten by overhead costs. Also because the proper safe amount of technicians aren’t dispatched to complete jobs in a timely manner.
Turnover is high, because pay and advancement opportunities are low. Keep in mind this is a growing company, but it’s growing at a very slow pace. It could be because there are more office staff, than technicians. The people are great people, but right now the beard, is still patchy. Meaning there are so many areas where business puberty haven’t struck.
I would recommend removing the pointless weight from the boat. Some top heavy positions are not needed, and monies could be delegated to industry appropriate professionals and certified technicians. This company is only a few steps away from being well oiled. So why not be well oiled.
Tech (Former Employee) – New England – September 23, 2018
Management at time shows not knowing how to run the shop or anything for that matter, only one manager for two shops that cover 5 states and only a handful of techs, not good! If you want the company to get better reviews from customers.overworked and overloaded work for technicians most of techs are tired but will not leave due to being proud of our work ethic, pay can be better specially for lead techs $$$& not there for all they do comisión base pay sucks, at times regular techs make more than a lead tech due to commission rate. GreAt work family but bad or poorly management, fix that problem and you will see the change.
Good coworkers, challenging work
Pay, management, equipment, most important. Communication

Service Technician (Former Employee) – Elkridge, MD – January 15, 2017
This company is very unorganized. The management sucks. They want to work you like a slave and give you no days off. Company does not issue to proper equipment needed to complete the jobs successfully, and to make sure there employees are safe. Work schedule normally consists of 6 day work week. No set time as to when you will get off. If you don't like working outside, or in tight spaces this is not the job for you. Salary did increase recently that was a plus. Good company just ran by the wrong people.
