    Its a position with JLL, so the benefits are good and the pay will be competitive and based on experience.

    JLL is a cost cutting company, they bid on facilities contracts and once they get them they hire current employees for a lot less pay and benefits, they cut the manpower down in order to maximize their profits, many times JLL has failed to deliver the promised services and lose the contracts after a year or so, when that happens the employees are left behind to the mercy of the next contract bid winner, This business model is detrimental to the workers that before were employed directly by the owners and now are forced to take a job with JLL for a lot less $$$!
    There is not better place for the working men than the union! 100% UA the only HVAC union!

    Wow buddy, who peed in your corn flakes...
    I couldnt agree more that union is the way to go, i come from CA from local 39 and they are great. Unfortunately there is very little of a union presence in the DFW area, and JLL has a lot of long time accounts (I am not an advocate of theirs in many ways but they treat there employees fairly from my experience with them).
    Anyway back on topic, I'm just looking for good building engineers to work at a new state of the art facility for a JLL client that has been a long time partner with the company.

    Nothing compared to NY, i went from mid 50's/hr in CA to high 30's/hr out here. Health benefits are comparable but no pension, just 401K match contributions.
    Price of living is comparable to salary though, price per sq ft out here is like 120-150/sq ft. as opposed to 4-500/sq ft in CA.

    Quite a healthy saving, I'd say.

    Dont take it personal, I dont have a positive opinion about JLL,CBRE,CW and the rest of the so called "property management companies, I see them screw the workers big time, specially when they take over a facility not previously "managed" by a third party.
