I worked at Onyx-Fire Protection Services full-time

Pros

It's hard to think of anything positive to say about Onyx. It is at least convenient for Highway 401, and is a great place for plane spotters.

Cons

Onyx-Fire is located in an old building that was re-furbished to look newer. It's heating and A/C systems do not work properly and so it's either too cold in winter or too hot in summer.

Management feel that they need to rule with an iron rod, they are also inclined to abuse the goodwill of their employees, though they have done this enough that there is not a great deal of goodwill left.

Fortunately they are in a business where it's easy to make money, if that were not the case I suspect they would have failed long ago.

The company is run by a family and nepotism is rife I don't think any of this is ever going to change.

    I have been working at Onyx-Fire Protection Services full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The company is very passionate about customer service and it can lead to some pressure to turn things around for the clients but they make up for that by taking care of their employees. They do not lay anyone off when it is slow. We work harder to make sure we get past the slow times of the years and therefore the job stability is secure. The benefits are good.

    Cons

    They work with their employee too much and try to get them better. The only problem is other people have to work a little more to compensate for bad employees who rather play on facebook then work. After they discover the employee is too much they release the person and the next thing you know a bad review pops up.

    Advice to Management

    Be a little more picky who you hire. Getting tired of seeing bad reviews from bad employees.

    I worked at Onyx-Fire Protection Services full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    No pros for this company

    Cons

    The hours are to long and your under paid. No over time pay and they tell you to start early and you have to work late. No breaks and your not allowed to go out for lunch with anyone. You will get pulled into the board room and get threatened. They don't like you talking with anyone at work. When you are at your desk you are not allowed to talk. It's not a healthy environment. Watch out for the wife she's not nice and controls her husband who is management.

    Advice to Management

    Stop telling your workers to write good reviews because someone told the truth about you guys. People have the right to know what their getting themselves into. Stop treating your employees like slaves.
