    The new owners are investing big in training and development for their employees, remodeling the branches, and technology and mobile apps for HVACR Contractors. The new owner group has done a great job hiring the right people.

    Overcoming some of the negative perceptions left behind from the prior owner group

    Pros

    Management is great, and they value work/life balance. All of the coworkers are very friendly and willing to help each other.

    Cons

    Outdated company with lower than standard benefits. Employees commonly use books or printer paper to raise their monitors to eye level. Company does not provide much for continuing education.

    Advice to Management

    If your goal is to be a growth company you have to hire top talent. In order to do so you need to have better wages and benefits. Otherwise you will continue to have a short retention on employees

    Pros

    The technical tools and product availability are second to none. People who want to succeed in this industry the old fashion way I.e. With hard work and dedication to the company you work for will do very well at Johnstone. Unfortunately for those who might not be able to be that dedicated or who feel a sense of entitlement might not do well at a johnstone because of the close knit interdependence that's exists in the Johnstones I have had experience with.

    Cons

    For go-getters and hard workers all of the cons will be too short lived to remember, for the others not so much I guess

    Advice to Management

    Keep investing, keep listening , and continue to show people where hard work and dedication can take you in your organization
