    Has anyone worked for Johnson Controls?

    Just wondering if they are a good company to work for. I know they are huge, but are they good?

    Thanks!

    They seem to get rid of everyone just before they hit 50 where I live. Could be a feak thing or just unhappy guys when they hit 50. Just maybe look around the shop and see if you spot any old guys there.......

    Not good in Rochester NY. Many I know left when they took over York and slashed their pay and benefits. They let A LOT of great mechanics leave because of this.

    they recently had major employee cutback (release) in this area

    word is they already have another round in the pipeline for next October
    It`s better to be silent and thought the fool; than speak and remove all doubt.

    Thumbs down

    If you have any smarts and half a brain you will find some place else to work JMHO.
    Arguing with your Boss is like wrestling with a pig in
    mud.
    After a while you realize that while you are getting
    dirty, the pig is actually enjoying it.

    It is not exactly cheating, I prefer to consider it
    creative problem solving.

    25 years ago we had Bob Hope , Steve Jobs , and Johnny Cash today we have no Hope no Jobs and no Cash !
    I can fix broke but i can't fix stupid !

    Well then turn it around and if they had half a brain they would keep GOOD mechanics with 20+ yrs in the business and keep them on.

    Evil empire

    Johnson - not so good in michigan.

    If you are looking for a job for a year or two then hook it up.
    They hire short term.

    They are union breakers - the same as DM BURR,
    But I heard one of there perks was a green card.
    F U Johnson. Right now johnson is trying to get into Michigan schools because they are hurting so bad!

    Have a couple of buddies that went to work for the milwaukee branch, they like it. But then again they are salary and work in engineering.
