    I have been working at Cupertino Electric full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good working environment in many departments. Starting the 'cleaning house' process that will enable them to reach the highest level of sales. Not afraid to terminate out moded employees....dead wood...when market conditions demand it. Pay is just OK in many departments...not great...not below market....just OK. They definitely will promote from within rather than bring an outsider into management. Demand high standards of EVERYONE and not just a select few.

    Cons

    Very expensive health benefits. Below average profit sharing. Very, very expensive standard of living in San Jose or San Fransico. PLEASE TAKE NOTE: if CEI is relocating you from another area, you will need TWICE THE PAY THAT YOU RECEIVED/CURRENTLY RECEIVE OUSIDE THE BAY AREA!

    Advice to Management

    Your business model seems to be working...for the time being. You should really consider relocating outside the Bay Area but close...The Central Valley...or the cost of living will eventually crush your competitiveness.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Cupertino Electric in October 2014.

    Interview

    Met with a member of HR, several potential team members, and two managers on the same day and interview. Went over experience and resume. We discussed what I wanted from my employer and a job and discussed whether I thought I would fit into the corporate culture. Overall, an easy interview process.
