    Pros

    Great products and good people. Unlimited online training materials and never a shortage of tools to do job. Mechanics are average with the York guys having no concept of contract profit. Techs are very green with more emphasis on profit over quality. After working there two times in ten years, there will be no third chance- life is two short.

    Cons

    Local management never in place long enough to make a difference.

    Advice to Management

    Make the sales people at least sell enough to cover their salary without rebooking a previous contract with a minor upgrade.

    Pros

    Very competitive wages and, because JCI is world-wide, the possibilities for career advancement, are endless.

    Cons

    Technology is not streamlined, to give employees a single customer interface, so you don't truly have a complete customer view/history, making it extremely difficult when interacting with other divisions.

    Advice to Management

    I completely believe in the 8 Simple Rules for treating our customers and, wish those beliefs would be carried over to employees. I have applied for a couple of positions within JCI and, am very disappointed that the hiring managers failed to communicate status. If a candidate is no longer considered post-interview, at the very least, send an email advising the candidate of this. Our job posting system could be designed to automatically send a denial reply to an employee that makes it to the phone interview stage. Require the hiring manager to complete a survey. This is professional and courteous.
