It was a great place to work for me!
Builder Direct Group (Former Employee) –  London, ON28 November 2014
I only had a short stay at My Fireplace/Builder's Direct Group - about five months. I came from the electronic distribution industry and the HVAC area was all new to me. I did purchasing for the retail store and all repairs and installs. But, it went really well - had good support from the techs, operations manager and the owner. Like I said I was very green in knowledge on the product but, it went pretty well. There was a good "family" feel to the office - I wish I was making a bit more money and I knew there was no real advancement for me there except if I went back to school and got my gas fitters or HVAC certification. And the home building and the energy industries was a changing all the time and could affect hours and demand for services. I did learn a lot on the job about duct work, fittings, pipe, fireplaces, air conditioners, barbeques (even though they longer did them), replacement parts. The ownership and management was very down to earth - there was no problems with them at all. And the techs and other office staff were great. The retail and sales staff were good, too.
I only left to go back into the electronics industry which I was more interested in doing but, I was very glad that I got the opportunity to work with a different industry.
Pros
Great company! Great people!
Cons
Cutting of hours but, that was the industry and government's fault
