    I worked at Corix Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great pay. Great hours. Easy work. Great leadership, supervisors were always ready to help you out & went out of their way to help you succeed.

    Cons

    Some of the city areas that you maybe assigned to were not the best & you always had to keep your surroundings in check. If you were doing Electrical meters only & it rained you would have a lot of down time sitting in your car waiting for the chance to get back out.

    Pros

    Easy enough job, Fair pay, Many coworkers are decent people to work with, three day weekend when OT isn't being forced. If you like working outdoors, walking, and interacting with people briefly thats a lot of this job

    Cons

    Need to know mentality results in information being hoarded up top and not dispersed to the people it will effect until too late, Gutless union takes your money and offers zero discernible benefit, support from supervisors is preached but rarely materializes, If you aren't either family/long term friends/ former military service you will be passed over for promotions regardless of time/ability/background. Project work so it will not be a career without quickly rising in the company. Common disregard of preached safety policies but crackdowns never seem to hit the higher ups. Abhorrently poor metrics for tracking installer performance, Constant software issues that are always "being worked on" but painfully rarely ever seem to improve. Promises about performance pay and other incentives are loudly broadcast as happening but never materialized.

    Advice to Management

    Share information more freely, recognize the "boy's club" issue of only promoting people who are friends/family of higher ups, be certain your supervisors are up to snuff, currently several aren't/haven't been for some time.

    Hours are flexible. Pay is decent. 5 hours part time. Coworkers are great and work hard together.

    Cons

    Poorly managed, warehouse associate also means janitor. The time clock instead of timecard.

    Don't be cheap, take care of your employees and they will take care of you.

    Pros

    Mom and Pop shop so there are lots of opportunities to learn more than you would at a fortune 500 company.

    Cons

    No opportunities for minorities. Definitely a company of friends who look out for one another regardless of the abilities.

    Advice to Management

    DO your jobs, HR is not operations. Laziness will bring you lawsuits.
