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.

    Pros

    If you want to work...... A LOT!!! then this is the place for you. Its pretty good pay and there is plenty of oportunity to make $50k+ for just being blue collar.

    Cons

    They will work you till you fall apart. They care nothing about you or your family. You are replaceable and can be replaced by tomorow. 6 or 7 days a week when its busy. 12 hour days that you are forced to work. Not to mention the health aspect of working around lead, and repetative motion.

    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.
