    Pros

    The apprenticeship program is very good , average to good pay for plumbers . Learning a very good trade. Benefits . Prevailing wage jobs are very nice if you can get on one . It's about $10 more per hour on avg for journeymen not to mention the money that goes into your retirement .

    Cons

    Favoritism is abundant . Lots of cliques ,it is good to be in them so be freinds with the in crowd if you want to work on the good projects . Some superintendents are impossible to work for . Layoffs UNLESS as I said before about getting in with the in crowd . you will know who they are .

    Advice to Management

    I would say spilt up the cliques but they are probably what keeps the doors open . Some need to retire .

    I have been working at TP Mechanical Contractors full-time

    Pros

    I worked there the summer after my first year of college. Compared to the other jobs that my friends had, it paid pretty well. It also taught me a lot about the fabrication process of companies which I thought was pretty cool because I am going to be an engineer.

    Cons

    I don't really have any complaints about my time working here. Some people would not like the hours that we were required to work. They were pretty short on employees during my time there so we were working 10 hours a day (4 am - 2 pm). Other than that, it was all physical labor which didn't bother me, but it is definitely not for some people.

    Advice to Management

    Only thing I can think of is they should expand the size of the fab shop because it was getting very cramped with all of the material that they were bringing in.

    I worked at TP Mechanical Contractors full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    attempts to focus on training, decent benefits, Some good Field personel.O

    Cons

    Culture....Leadership is mostly made up of the "Good ole Boy network" mostly friends and family. Resistant to change, Attempting to be a large mechanical contractor but cannot get out of their own way. Individuals placed in positions that that have absolutley no business in, no skills to perform and manage through antiquated scare tactics. No one appears to enjoy working there. Turnover is the highest I have ever seen in this industry. That says a lot!!

    Advice to Management

    I have sen you hire a few Pros over the years but they typically do not last they are either pushed out by TP network, or they run away when they discover the behind he scenes truth about the Company. Hire outside, eliminate the Leaders that were given their roles because of their relationship status. The Company could have potential if you allow the new Leaders you find to "Do what they know" don't fight it. Look at your turnover across the board it says a lot about you.


  6. "Gives impression of a professional large Company atmosphere. But lacks substance, Friends and family network only"

    I worked at TP Mechanical Contractors full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Has commitment to training, decent benefits.,

    Cons

    Culture, driven by friends and family not qualifications. Extreme turnover for the Industry. They have brought in a few Pro's from other Industries but they don't last typically leave or are driven out by the Inept long term management Team. HR is a very inexperienced and really lack any qualifications. The the Little Cliques and family will drive this Firm's future,

    Advice to Management

    You have some potential, but your leadership cliques and lack of any long term vision are causing the turnover. When you bring in a Pro let them do their job and don't let your long term people run them off or convince Executive management they aren't right. They only fear they will be discredited by these people. Keep them on board ,Listen and get rid of some of these Regional Leaders in your core business, you know who they are
