    Wow....I am glad I decided to do a little research on this place. I just talked to a regional manager tonight and we are planning to meet sometime next week. I don't need to find a new job, I am just looking at options at this point. I have a feeling that this isn't going to be a good option! Thank god for google searches!

    Timebuilder,.well we relocated the Sacramento area(we live in the Sierra foothills),so I thought I would give them a try, thinking my experience might be different. Interview went well, got same pay rate as last company, and that's were the honeymoon ended. All of what has been said about this place is true. I've been in the field for 16+ years and should have known better, but its better to try and not succeed than to never try at all. . I got home the first day and started sending out more resumes, now that should tell ya how it went.
    Very driven to "find things " on your P.M. routes ,or you will not have any hours to carry the week or even month. I will not sell stuff that is not needed. Funny thing is all the P.M. routes I did the LONG two weeks I was there ,most had new capacitors and contactors, a quick easy thing to sell and change with little effort to get hours. DO NOT DRINK THE COOL AID. that was my little time in hell

    I haven't heard of them.

    I had a meeting (two meetings, actually) with a guy who runs a fairly large outfit in my part of Pa. I asked him where he thought the techs would come from when guys like he and I are gone. He didn't know.

    I explained that if this industry refuses to pay wages that will continue to attract men like me (no, I am NOT politically correct) then they will reap what they sew.

    Talented young guys would much rather write apps for the smart phones then learn an entire group of disciplines that are executed with real work. And, in the future that is coming our way, the industry will suffer because of it.

    And you will end up with a bunch of guys who can change a cap because it puts money in their check, and only a few that actually understand the machine that surrounds that cap.

    It's sad, really, but they are brining it on themselves with a race to the bottom, created by a dwindling base of retail stores and their "we can do it for you cheaper" service brokers.

    Very sad.

    Wonder when people that read this will stop saying to themselves. Maybe it will be different for me. I have actually had two people pm me and ask about cms. I explained in detail and they said ok. Some time later they PM me again, This time they say oh my god everything you said was true. What a terrible place to work. For anyone reading spare yourself the agony that some of us have had to go through and stay away from cms or and any of there affiliated companies.

    Why do you think they want all the "undocumented workers" in this country?

    Companies that perpetually have ads posted in the newspaper or online should raise red flags. In this economy, it is doubtful that they are growing at such a pace where they have to advertise every other month for service technicians. CMS is one of those companies that I've seen advertise frequently over the past several years. They seem to be looking for someone every two or three months. Locally they are currently advertising for both a field service supervisor position and for service techs. Sort of makes you wonder if some sort of mass exodus took place. Bottom line- companies that advertise for positions frequently should trigger alarm bells in the mind. At the very least, a modicum of caution should be exercised before ever committing to take a position with such a company.
