Laid back family style organization with lots of work
Inspection Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Clearwater, FLJune 9, 2018
This is by far one of the best places I have worked. The owners management and HR treat you with a humanistic side and not just like a worker bee. I've worked for Jobs and cooperation that treat you as just a number. Piper fire treats you as a human. They bend over backwards to help employees. I have never worked for a more understanding place. I feel like I'm part of the family.
Pros
The people
Cons
I didnt find them sooner

Everyone is in Charge!
INSTALLER (Former Employee) –  Clearwater, FLMay 14, 2018
This company has a problem with management, everyone is charge, but no one knows the work. By far, a very toxic environment. They have favorites that get away with things and do not do their jobs.

Endless Possibilities
Sales Representative (Current Employee) –  Clearwater, FLJanuary 17, 2018
Reasons I chose to accept a position at Piper Fire: competitive pay compared to former employer, bonus structure, benefits, stability and 'real world' experience.

Reasons I choose to stay with Piper Fire: Open door policy, industry leaders, always striving to keep employee health insurance costs down, encouragement to work as a team, community/volunteer efforts, annual employee appreciation nights, encouragement to 'create my own destiny' within the company as well as the reasons I chose to accept the position in the first place.
Pros
Benefits, Open Door Policy, company gatherings

Great Place to Work & Great People
Account Representative (Former Employee) –  Clearwater, FLJanuary 16, 2017
Piper Fire Protection is truly a great place to work. They are a constant growing company with room for advancement. They care about their employees. If you find that you have an interest in other areas and would like to make a move to a different department they have an open door and will train/work to make that move for you. They are there for you in and out of work. They also have very good benefits. All around great company to work with.
Pros
Good Management, Good Benefits, Caring Company

Electrical Dept. Manager a Nightmare
Electrical Technician (Former Employee) –  Clearwater, FLJanuary 11, 2017
I thought I would enjoy working for Piper in the electrical division, and maybe I would have if they had a decent manager. We've all worked for someone like him. He treats his men like trash; demeaning, insulting, arrogant, blaming, passive aggressive, undermining. One of the absolute worst people in the electrical business in our area.

Overall an OK place to work
Service Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Clearwater, FLJanuary 5, 2017
All in all Piper Fire was an okay place to work. It is a great stepping stone type job. There were some unprofessional moments with HR, but overall management was again okay. They are truly a family orientated company and look out for their own. The work environment was not bad at all. It was pretty laid back.
Pros
Pay, Benefits, Work Hours, Work shirts provided
Cons
Short breaks, no loyalty, poor job training, lack of true HR dept., lack of effective communication, lack of professionalism

High School
Extinguisher maintenance and repair (Former Employee) –  Largo, FLJuly 22, 2016
Early morning start, very calm and chill environment, small amount of people working in the same building. Typically worked alone servicing fire extinguishers so that they are ready to go out in the field. Work would include discharging fire extinguisher in hopper, removing the head and taking it apart to clean and/or replace. Hydrostatic testing,resembling, pressurizing, water testing and documenting.

Piper Fire Protection is a good company to work for. They have taken initiative in helping employees advance in their careers. They send their employees to a 4 year training program and pay for lots of other certifications. Throughout the last 5 years they have provided me with stable work. Good company!

Work as fitter
Fitter (Former Employee) –  Largo, FLSeptember 3, 2015

Pros
Learned about fire sprinkler
Cons
Bad construction environment
