    I worked at Building Maintenance Services full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Only work for BMS if your desperate for work. They always paid on time. However they will come up with excuses not to give your bonuses.

    Cons

    They will lock you into a two or three year non-compete contract. It will prevent you from working in any area of the commercial cleaning industry in any county that you managed one of their customers in. Totally ridiculous and most likely non enforceable in court. Regional and District managers are very corrupt. Refuse to terminate bad contractors due to receive kickbacks from them. Even if their customers contract requires employees they deceitfully subcontract out the job. HR department is run by one person with no HR background.

    Advice to Management

    Stop looking the other way as your managers receive kickbacks and use less than scrupulous tactics to keep business.

    Pros

    The Job itself is not too difficult.

    Cons

    Management that treats employees like they are stupid...they Talk down to employees. Management also puts unnecessary pressure on its employees...cleaning buildings and picking up trash is not a life or death matter, employees should not feel stressed out. In addition, they do very shady things involving skimming on the hirring of temps, when certain locations should require more. they also will do whatever it takes to save money, even if it reduces they're integrity. Also, dont expect the corporate office to get anything done in a timely fashion they are a joke! do not work here even if you are desperate.

    Advice to Management

    Treat People with love and kindness. You are not better than your employees. Management is as bad as it gets, worst culture Ive ever been apart of. Toxic. Not enjoyable place to work. (st john's campus)

    I have been working at Building Maintenance Services full-time

    Pros

    The Managers don't know what they are doing so if you are a go get it attitude they will let you do your job.

    Cons

    All Managers have very little formal education. lots of conflicts occur with local staff due to misleading Regional Manager reports to owner. lots of under the table gifts to property managers that undermines local staff members job s and hard work. The company does not have any type of formal training at any level. Bonus or Commission plans are change without prior nor former notice and not paid.

    Advice to Management

    Hire better Regional Managers and a Human Resource Director. Start a real training program for managers and local cleaning staff. Stop all of the under the table gifts to Senior Property Managers. Protect your real workers that produce money for your company and stop paying attention to hearsay that is baseless.
