Company reviews
"Bad management "
Former EmployeeCustomer Service Representative
The company is constantly going through changes and implementing new rules and metrics. With these frequent changes there often were people shifting in management teams. One week your reporting to one and the next to the other and frequently they had different approaches and expectations of their employees. There was little communication between coaches and too often I got left hanging with questions or problems I could not resolve on my level. The amount of disorganization in management and with expectations set too high I have seen a lot of long time employees leave. When I left maybe 3 of about 100 employees remained from the team I came into, which most had transitioned to remote from working on site for several years .many expressed to me they left unhappy with what the work environment had become as did I.

"Fun but not enough pay and dangerous at time "
Former EmployeeField Service Technician
Work was good when it was good. But when it got slow you weren't guaranteed work or hours. Plus the company wanted techs to sell stuff all the time. I just wanted to Install and repair.

"Buen ambiente de trabajo, apoyo constante y seguridad "
Current EmployeeJefe/a administrativo/a
Excelente lugar para trabajar, ambiente agradable, capacitación constante, oportunidad de crecimiento

"Installation turned into a sales role"
Former EmployeeTechnician
Got hired as a installation tech and quickly realized that this job was all about selling extra products that most people had no interest in. A lot of the time you’d come to someone’s home to install service, and they would not be able to afford the extra products and you’d get disciplined for not shoving product down customers throats.
