    I have been working at Source Refrigeration & HVAC full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great opportunities for growth as an individual. New leadership direction committed to positive changes, and working hard to make the company more financially successful, but also a top tier employer.

    Cons

    Change does not happen overnight, and comes in steps. Sometimes making even simple changes is more challenging than it appears.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up!

    Pros

    I have worked in this division for many years. I have seen many ups and downs and where we are as a group right now cannot be compared to where we were, not perfect, but what is.

    Cons

    Huge branch, sometimes too many hours of OT but the service manager is trying to cut it down where he can. He's a solid guy and actually cares about us.

    Advice to Management

    Pay closer attention to the guys that slack off. There are too many of them working against you.

    I worked at Source Refrigeration & HVAC full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Regular paycheck but little else to recommend

    Cons

    Lack of stability for employees, constantly changing management. Operations staff firmly set in the past and, like the Titanic, are slow to recognize massive problems in time to avoid disasters. It seemed the company was constantly steering too close to the rocks on many levels. A lot of staff turnover, always a concern about job security, and lack of recognition of more qualified staff and incentives for high producers. Wages and benefits not on par with other industry competitors. A sad place to have to go to work everyday. Cannot recommend to anyone unless you just want to learn basics of refrigeration mechanics, then leave for a better position with a more professionally run company.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees, seek input from the core staff in the workgroups doing all of the income production for the company, iron out basic problems that are breaking down the company from top to bottom.

    I have been working at Source Refrigeration & HVAC full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    My service technicians are amazing and pleasant. Always ready to get the job done. The hours aren't bad either and there is always overtime in the summer.

    Cons

    Management is completely out of touch and in many cases completely inept. Also the pay scale is completely rigged and you have some dispatchers making vastly more money than capable dispatchers who have been with the company for much longer.

    Advice to Management

    Start paying attention to you employees and encourage growth

    Pros

    Training, customer base, long term employees are very loyal, they remember the good days.

    Cons

    HR
    Sales Department in Anaheim is weak
    Recent departure of a key ops executive and management in the NW is very concerning.

    Advice to Management

    Get back to the way things were and you will be successful. The new owners are showing their arrogance by not listening to the people who built this company.

    Pros

    not too many PROS, except always got paid on time. You recently had a 10mil. dollar settlement and had to correctly pay many of your employees !!! Glad to hear that someone made it right !!!
    Great company to learn the trade, and then MOVE ON !!!!

    Cons

    Executive team was hard to deal with... Especially (C.CZ), he was the devil !!
    Double standard for field people vs. the "SUITS". the truth is the field team puts their pants on the same as the execs...one leg at a time....

    Advice to Management

    GO AWAY !! MOVE TO CANADA !!! GO TO MEXICO, LEAVE THE COUNTRY, GO INTO FAST FOOD !! BECOME AN UNDERSTANDING HUMAN BEING !!!!!(most have proved that is not possible)
