    is kind of surprising that such a poor managed company like JLL is still around and making $$$$. my employer lost an account to JLL, they bid it real low, we wonder how they could make money with such tight margins, on top of that they hired 5 guys to do the job that 2 guys were doing before, part of the contract was sub-out to us cause they couldn't find qualified techs, year later they lost the account to us, unbelievable the mess they left behind, they most be taking money from another venture to subsidy the HVAC experiment.

    The lowest bidder does not always get the job.

    Im not here to be a cheerleader for JLL. It does have its problems but I have seen much worse. So far they have been very good to me.

    They started out in England as Jones Lang Wooten back in the late 1700s and combined with Lasalle partners in the 1960s to become Jones Lang Lasalle. I have seen a lot of things they could improve on but I have also seen other companies do much worse. I usually dont care for huge companies but this one has been more than fair with me on more than a few occassions.

    The interesting thing about JLL is that all accounts are managed separately, just because one contract was poorly managed does not mean that they all are.

    I am on the UHC account and it managed very well. This company hasn't been around for 200 years for no reason, most of the people here know what they are doing, any company could hire a tech of two that don't have pride in their work.

    I'm sorry about not getting the position! Keep trying ... JLL may have other openings plus there are other companies depending on where u live ! I left JLL because they made us asset managers so we never touched equipment and I did not want to loose my skills.... But the people were nice pay was ok
    An air conditioning or refrigeration unit never signs a check for me! PEOPLE do that,and you should never allow yourself to forget that WE fix the problems of people,not machines.They are at the heart of our business,one way or another,and polishing the skills required to provide solid customer service will never be a waste of your time

    Wow. A ten page thread about one company.

    Not sure if I'd be up for a large percentage of handyman work. I live for diagnostics.

    What differences are there between the mobile and the single builing positions, in terms of pay? I'm in SE pa.

    10 pages but not all bad.

    In terms of pay, I would have to say that would depend greatly on the client and your experience versus their needs.

    If all things being equal, I would think the single position would pay more than the mobile position. Usually that position will be in a multi story building and almost guaranteed to have multiple chillers and boilers. The mobile position usually goes to lighter commercial experienced employees. Both will have "handy man" duties but both will also have electrical and HVAC repair responsibilities.

    The job is low on the intensity scale for diagnostics, but if you are looking for a decent paying job with an easier, less stressful work environment then I would recommend JLL.

    I hate the term "handy man" but I guess it would sorta fit.

    One great thing about working here. The first month I started earning vacation. New employees get 18 days vacation their first year and another 10 days of holiday pay. To me this was amazing.

    I like the MES position. I really could not stand being in the same building all the time. As far as pay goes I think MES is on the higher end but I could be wrong. We run into different stuff every day. I hate being out in the cold though. Boilers have their advantages.

    I wouldn't take it if offered to me. The paper work involved sucks. I get my operations manager to order stuff and take care of the consolidation of invoices. I don't have time for that B.S.
    Nemo me impune lacessit.

    How much blood do I have to bathe in to get clean?

    Don't look down on anyone unless you're helping them up.
