R E Michael is a comfortable place to work but you cannot live comfortably off the salary.
Salesperson (Current Employee) – Pennsylvania – November 23, 2013
I took a full time job at R E Michael company. Although I have learned some things for if I decided to do HVAC work on the side I feel I could serve the world and those I love better in a more career oriented profession. A typical day of work is warehousing products for HVAC contractors. Most of my co workers are good people and when it comes down to it we get along, so are most of the contractors that do business with us. The hardest part of the job is the salary. The owners did not become rich men and expand to a nationwide company by paying their employees what they deserve. They are very anti union from the company handbook and that is their opinion, no one has to work for them if they do not accept the salary. They do provide competitive benefits so I respect them for that, as I have worked for companies where they do not provide that. The job security is also positive. The most enjoyable part of the job is the easy going atmosphere.
Competitive benefits, job security, and easy going atmosphere.
Salary, advancement, company poitics, and anti union ethics.
