    I worked at EMCOR (Connecticut) part-time

    Pros

    It was a great atmosphere for the first couple of years

    Cons

    Very strict, upper management had a dictator-esque personality. Like Kim Jong Il he would just show up and not say anything to you.. just watch for a minute then leave.. Then maybe fire you later for no apparent reason.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep your expectations high only if you are willing to put in the effort to properly train employees.

    I worked at EMCOR (Connecticut) full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    A really good learning opportunity, I am able to be involved in a lot more than I was hired to do

    Cons

    I've had my benefits downgraded 3 times in four years, an insultingly small raise despite consistently 'exceeding expectations'

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My account manager never communicates changes to my job site - we have learned about every single change well after implementation

    I have been working at EMCOR (Connecticut) full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I enjoyed working with the mechanics, but management was pitiful or should I say non-existent.

    Cons

    Corporate didn't care about issues at the site, as long as costs were in check and reports were turned in on time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a clue, you will lose contracts - the customer is not happy and you have an unqualified manager running your site.

    I worked at EMCOR (Connecticut) full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Tons of overtime available if you ever need extra money.They are open 24 hours, 365 days a year so if they like you, hours are flexible.

    Cons

    Lots of mandatory overtime and the call center floor manager is really rude and talks badly about employees when they are on their break. Extremely high turnover rate because of this and the fast-paced flow of calls.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please behave in a professional manner, dating employees is highly unethical and bad for morale.

    I worked at EMCOR (Connecticut) full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Coworkers were fun to work with. I enjoyed interacting with many of the people on the phone.

    Cons

    The wages at the call center were poor. Management was very confrontational, hostile, and unprofessional. Interactions with supervisors were very negative. The new technology being implemented made it very difficult to work efficiently.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be nicer to people and pay them more. Stay positive. Be the person you would want to work for.

    Pros

    I love talking to our customers and mechanics! Ample training is provided from day one, employees have confidence they are providing the superior service the company is known for.

    Cons

    Employee retention is high, sometimes it is a wait to advance to the next level. In the meantime, there are all kinds of training programs available to enhance performance and prepare for the next step in your career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the fantastic training programs. I have learned so much, I know whatever lies ahead in my career I will be ready.
