    Pros

    IES has a pretty good benefits package, they also are competitive salary wise.

    Cons

    As many large corporations, bottom line is more important than loyalty. Yeah, it is essential to keep a company lean and ready in this economic environment, but, if there is any kind of pause between jobs, IES will let people go and try to rehire rather than keep them on for a couple weeks to ensure they keep the best people. I'm also not fond of their policy to fill employees personnel files with as many write-ups as possible to help them fight unemployment compensation when they do let people go. My file stayed empty, but as a manager, it was my responsibility to write up as many people as I could as often as I could.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think about showing loyalty to people who have shown you loyalty.

    Fire Alarm Programmer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Chandler, AZ
    Anonymous Employee in Chandler, AZ
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Integrated Electrical Services in February 2011.

    Interview Details

    The interview was somewhat chaotic, four people were involved and I got rapid fire questions from all. However the interview was for a high stress position and it appeared they needed it filled as soon as possible. All the interviewers seemed to know what they were talking about (fire alarm programming for EST systems) and were polite but firm in that the position was a very difficult position.
