Electric motor rewinder (Former Employee) – Irving, TX – July 15, 2018
A large motor shop with interesting equipment to work on, but a lot of problems. A good crew to work with - all with good skills and a willingness to work. Still, there was far too much re-work. Poor supervision, or a lack of supervision, was I believe the root cause.

We normally have a monday morning safety meeting, about situation we encounter everyday on the jobsite. Management seem to always been available for their employees, they tend to work with their employee on giving time off for personal reason. They had no issue on finding a job for their employees to work on. Management key was to make sure that each employee took a training course to make sure that we was Knowledgeable at our worksite. The culture life was very mix, we at tend to get along well with on another.The hardest part was coming into the company not knowing a single thing about the job. What made it fun was hands on getting to learn and working together as a team, we push ourselves to make sure we get the job done in a safely and timely manner. The most enjoyable part about the job is something different from the last job, encountering a new situation and learning. Learn to splice a cable doing terms, ducting and testing Delta Y transformer.

Horrendous place to work due to the culture that the managers instill. All advancements and opportunities are solely due to nepotism. Only family or friends are put into positions to succeed. I hired in to work at an office location that they didn't even have. I was lied to from the very beginning.

I traveled quite a bit the first 6 months I worked for Shermco. I then was assigned to a project in Ohio for about 5 months. The work pace was moderate giving us plenty of time to do thing right etc. Work conditions were mostly favorable. Some bad weather!

If you have a family don't bother working here. This company will promise you the world then take it all away. Management lies to your face everyday pretends to be your friend but will stab you in the back quickly. If you work hard and looking for something in return you won't get it here. If you do drugs and fail a drug test this is the company for you. Shermco will let good hard working people go and keep the people on probation that fail drug test and can't get on work on time. The management has certain people they like and if you are not in the clique your job isn't safe. Managers will tell you they will go to bat for you but that's only for certain people.

Working at Shermco was a pleasant but boring experience. Albeit, power isn't my cup of tea and Shermco helped me realized that. During my time there I was treated very well but the work was mundane and I had trouble finding any motivation to do the work.
Senior Account Executive (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – October 27, 2017
Area management was very poor. No training and lots of promises that never happen. Upper management was great and supportive when you reached them. Maybe they should look into why there have been some many sales people underneath this areas manager.

Shermco is a company that excels at many offerings in the Electrical Testing, Maintenance and Engineering Industry. Great one stop company for customers. Great place for employees to see, learn, an grow their skill sets in many areas.

A average day will be full of work that will keep you busy. Each day is new and you are trained all the time. Management keeps you informed of all that is going on. Workplace culture is upbeat. The hardest part is to have enough time in the day to finish every thing. That you stay busy.
Shermco employees were a great family of people. They were honest and reliable concerning their promises. They demanded you to be efficient. They liked you to be on time. Never pressured me to do something I didn't want to or feel comfortable to do.Yet gave me great opportunities to excel.
