    I worked at International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay. Vision insurance was weird. Medical and Dental insurance were good. Retirement isn't through them. That is from NEAP.

    Cons

    Was dismissed from Davey Tree with one verbal warning, and the union never filed an appeal. The union rep would never return my calls or provide me any assistance.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to Jimmy Hoffa junior and learn how to run a union. I was treated better by the Teamsters when I was a part-time employee at UPS in college.
