    I worked at Gem Plumbing & Heating full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Like I said, they pay well. Good benefits. Most of the employees are good people.

    Cons

    No loyalty to hard working employees. They expect you to work till your fingernails fall off and charge customers almost twice what the going rate is normally.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to treat your workers like people and not assets.

    I worked at Gem Plumbing & Heating full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The only good thing about this company is you may get a free T-shirt once a year other than that there's nothing good to say about them!

    Cons

    I worked for them for 2 years, and you would think a company of their size there'd be one plumber who knew what they were doing right? Nope they don't. One job I was on the foreman (for gem) didn't even know how to run a proper wet vent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stick with the service side of plumbing, new construction you's don't have a clue.

    I have been working at Gem Plumbing & Heating full-time

    Pros

    No one looking over your shoulder as long as your making money

    Cons

    Long term (lifers) employees are not held accountable by upper management (owners) and seriously cost company money

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Seriously consider removing some long time dead weight that dont have the companys best interest in mind only their own

    I worked at Gem Plumbing & Heating full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The Gemma's are approachable, however i dont think they care,
    There are a couple honest tech's to learn from.

    Cons

    in my last year of my apprenticeship they gave me a truck and had me driving around by myself running calls which is fine i felt i was ready but when i asked for a raise they said "well lets see how you do" i was selling jobs for profit and doing well my manager rode with me one day to see how i was he said i did a good job so a couple months later i wanted the raise they promised and they gave me a $1 i was making $13 an hour and doing the same work as guys making twice and not all were licensed i felt disrespected and when i found another job is when they wanted to give me the raise i deserved it was too late, i have worked with 2 other companies since gem was grossly underpaying me and by far the worst company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    my advice to management get rid of the dishonest technicians you have, you know who they, unfortunately at Gem they are the ones who are taken care of there, they grossly take advantage of customers lack of plumbing knowledge

    Pros

    They are flexible with time off. Co-workers are close-knit and friendly. A constant learning experience, and you will never be bored.

    Cons

    The salaries are below industry average, and sometimes you are expected to put your personal life on hold. Stress is also the norm.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to not be so afraid to tell employees they are doing a bad job. People need to be reprimanded in order to fix what they are doing wrong.
