Alright workplace, low pay
Majority of the co-workers are friendly, however, there are some that don't respect others. If you are looking for residential work, this company is very good for it. Be prepared for poor income due to low wages and inconsistent hours (at shop for 6:30 but don't get paid until 8 and leave sites early around 3, unpaid driving in company vehicle). On the other side, you learn A LOT, and most of co-workers are willing to teach you because they want you to learn. Recommended, however be prepared for cons.
Pros
More jobs than most resi companies, lots of opportunity to learn
Cons
Poor wage, poor hours

Had fun trying to unionize them
Terrible company to work for. Worked for them a very short period before coming together as a team and attempted to organize them into the union we won but they got off unfortunately. The guys still got into the union because most of their employees signed. Do yourself and your fellow electricians a favour organize these crooks for a better wage benefits and working conditions

Company has serious work expectations
Worked here for a while the wages are fair for fair work however there is plenty of guys that try to come to work here and fail so the one lesson that I've seen is that if you don't have the skill sets that you say you do you shouldn't apply to hotwire they will fire you very quickly if you don't prove your skill-set quick enough for them they put their clients first and make sure that their employees understand that if you're coming in looking for long hours and 60 + weeks this is not that company for you they have a work-life balance and they will not do overtime as they have a full team in the office for scheduling and client services so they do not run overtime hours you do not need to drive your own car in this company like I had two in my previous one which is a pro
Pros
Provide tools and trucks and steady work hours even when its slow seasons
Cons
Will fire asap if you suck
