    I have been working at ADK Electric full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Gives a new guy to the field the knowledge and ability to grow. I started not knowing electrical and am now 3rd year. They have paid my tuition, helped me grow my tool base, and provided me a wonderful career. I have great foremen and leads above me that have taught me a lot. I hope to become a foreman myself.

    Cons

    I sometimes wish I could work closer to home, but that is construction and I understand that.

    Advice to Management

    none really.

    I worked at ADK Electric full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Paid schooling and a good backlog of work

    Cons

    Many foremen are not licensed or qualified for that position. Very few opportunities to learn on the job from competent electricians. No room for growth. Expensive benefits

    I worked at ADK Electric full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Provide tool account to purchase anything needed and offer full schooling.

    I worked at ADK Electric for more than a year

    Pros

    They give you a place to start in the trade as an apprentice.

    Cons

    They laid off good employee's 3rd and 4th year apprentices and kept the less experienced employee's 1st and 2nd year apprentice's it seems to keep their payroll / cost down.

    Advice to Management

    For one of the owner's "Dennis" to not be rude or disrespectful to his employee's. This seems to be what a lot of electrician's say about the company. That working for Dennis is not good. Very unprofessional.
