    DHR Mechanical

    Any of you guys know DHR Mechanical?

    The company I work for (who says we are not making enough profit to make our margins) has decided to expand into new states in which we have no customers or employes.

    So they bought a local company instead "DHR Mechanical"

    Apparently they service supermarkets in Atlanta, Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina & Virginia.

    I don't understand that thought process?? We're not making enough money, so let's expand our territory and buy another company! Maybe they should fix the reason for not making money first.

    How's this going for you? Did you move from the Trane building yet? A lot branches that way were closed. In the West, Seattle, Denver and Vegas are gone. I think Portland as well.

    About Source, it's love-hate. The best training, the brightest JM to bounce stuff off of and the latest technology being installed.
    Then there is the constant 80+ weeks, travel, politics and the f-ing MAC. The JM would get chewed for a ladder of mistakes allowed by the numerous level 1-3 guys left alone that could care less.
    All that said, I'd go back.

    they have made a lot of changes in the last 1 1/2 years. a bunch of their top end guys are just waiting for a phone call to leave.

    They just re-signed Kroger in SoCal for another year...I had phone calls from several Source guys who are actually depressed that they are now stuck at Source for at least another year...that's not a good sign.

    I was lucky enough to get out

    I worked for them for a while, seemed ok, typical SuperMarket Refrigeration Co. lots of hours. The installs I saw seemed to be decent quality. The dude that ran the Refrigeration side was nice enough ( cannot recall his name ). I left them for an offer locally or I would probably still be there.
