Designer (Current Employee), High Point, NC – October 24, 2013
Pros: free coffee, 18 mile travel to work, laid back atmosphere.
Cons: no area for promotion (project manager), no retirement, short hours (33)
Health insurance is ordinary but with no 401K. No advancement areas at all due to family members being hired over experienced personnel. These days our projects are far and few in between with a slow work pace however the company is debt free with reserve resources to prevent closure. I have progressed to NICET lever 1 but due to the economy the other – more... NICET levels will have to wait. I have learned to implement and delegate work among our subcontracted designers. My co-workers are very laid back and easy to get along with and the hardest part of the job theses days would be keeping old and outdated computers and printers functioning. – less
Sprinkler Fitter Foreman (Former Employee), Vernon Hills, IL – October 6, 2012
Pros: long lunches!
Cons: lack of work during depression.
Exciting job, High work and great view of things below. The hardest part of the job is having to leave at the end of the day. Learned how to protect people and buildings from fire. Installing and servicing sprinkler systems is a very rewarding career.
