Good pay but you're just a number

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Company does not really care about employees well being. People with problems or issues get zero sympathy from management or human resources. Good pay and benefits however.

Really safe workplace

Good place to work and grow as an employee. Management changes a lot but the vibe is kept constant and thanks to the CEO’s guidance the employees are cared for

Poor Management

The company itself is your typical big corporation. Management at the Vancouver branch has a high turn over rate and lacks consistency. The company doesn’t do any initiative for its employees

Corporate nightmare

Great staff at Edmonton undermined by higher ups that do not understand the industry. Little to no work for techs in the city. Regularly not paid on time despite being a union company.

Needs re-vamping

This company gives no loyalty. You are a number and once you reach the peak number, out with the old, in with the new. Old managers either ignore you or blame you for not fixing their mistakes quick enough. There are favourites, boy are there favorites. If you do not establish yourself as one of them, expect to find another job soon. Oh and the faves - they will stab you in the back just as soon as look at you.It wasn't always like this. At one point it was a great place to work and most people were treated as equals and shared the work. Once the new, younger managers came in, everything changed. So glad I got out

This is the best job I have ever had I can't believe this is my life now. It never feels like I am ever truly clocked in when I am here. When you're here you're treated like family

Good training courses.

During my 5 years of working this company is enjoyable even though it’s stressful job specifically with on call. What I don’t like was a political ambition of some co- workers and leaders. Management bought me out with unfair judgment.


Fair salary


Unfair management

Worst company ever

Typical American corporation. Your below a number. All managers are so focused on making the numbers they literally have no idea what's happening in field. You have supervisors that don't even know what your job is out in field, do not work there.

good company

Im working for Johnson control in a hospital at toronto. It's a good opportunity and advantages are nice but sometimes the management is not very good

Great Company that takes care of their employees

I currently work as a technician at Johnson Controls and I feel like they do their best to invest in their staff. I feel like I'm paid fairly and they have spent a lot of money sending me to all kinds of trainings to build me up as an employee.There is a very strong focus on safety here so they have a lot of safety rules to be aware of. Breaking the rules can cost you your job. If you can demonstrate a good work ethic and commitment to the company there is room for advancement.


Great benefits, matching pension, great work/life balance, friendly co-workers


Almost no overtime, very tight regulations that require to strictly adhere to company policy.

Good opportunity to learn but low pay rate

JCI is a good company to start with since they provide you many resources to learn and grow. Most people stay for their career with company because there are lot of advancementsOne problem is that pay is really low and you do not earn based on what you do

Great and respectful work environment

They pay super well and respect their employee but are tight on schedule and attendance rate (understandably). Only left because of personnal events in my life but otherwise woul’ve stayed cause it’s a really great job

Run Far Away

The job itself is okay but my co workers were constantly having breakdowns and I would have to witness it which was a miserable working environment. JCI are all about numbers if sales aren't up your out the door. I got low balled with my salary and the other managers are never ever there. It takes a manager a week to return an email or phone call. The customers don't even like dealing with them because it takes so long for a response. Don't know how JCI stays in business.


Free uniforms


Miserable working environment

Great career opportunities!

For those complaining about low pay increases year to year, you are doing it wrong. If you want a good increase you need to make yourself hard to replace and if you want an even better raise then you need to be willing to move up the ladder, this might require relocating to another district that is in a greater need of your abilities. This is how it works in most giant companies, for myself i am satisfied with the opportunities that i had over time and recommend this company.


Safety culture, pay and advancement opportunities are pretty good.


Task management phone application doesn't work well, many issues.
