The worst company you can work for. They rob from churches, salvation army, and i could name so meany buildings they steal from . What i mean by that is. They will pretend they are working and go to sleep on the stairs or hide somewhere in the building its done all the time. why does that happen its because there is nothing wrong in your building they will make something up for you to sign that paper invoice. The owner Jazmin knows there is nothing wrong and marry also knows there is nothing wrong in the building. He will tell you to unplug the battery and call the company to go offline and to send a signal. So if the customer asks for proof all he has to do is get the copy that they sent a signal to that panel. After you do that just go find a place to sit or sleep for the next 4 hours. Each building they go to they must do 5 hours so they can bill you for the work they never did its all a lie and scam. Also they will blow up a chip in your system for them to service you and you will pay for something they broke. The invoices you get are all a lie they will never write the truth. They dont even own one ladder for you to use. The owner Jazmin has no respect for anyone all he cares about is how to scam the next person. He treats you like a dog and so does marry. The secretary Sophia also has not respect for her workers. All jazmin says is keep it shut I have connections what does that mean.??? There are some buildings more than five that the alarm does not work and if there is a fire the alarm will not go off. They say they fix things but they never do fix it. I will be putting up videos on YouTube of what I mean by their work sleeping and stealing from hard working People of new York.
How you can catch them on their scam is keep them out of your building. Or reviewing all your invoices you will notice they will write the same thing over and over.
Do not fall for their scam they will tell you Iím here for a monthly service or they will say weekly services or every 6 months service. They will tell you that so you will sign the paper and the truth is they only need to go 1 time a year not 20 times a month. Jazmin the owner will not get in trouble for what you say on the invoice if anything goes wrong in the building its on the person that went to that building to service it. Because his name is not on the paper so he will just fire you and get the next person to do the same thing you did. So when the alarm doesnít go off when there is a fire guess whos getting in trouble not jazmin the person that did the services.

I worked for Firequench and boy it was no picnic. Desmond Burke has issues, he is arrogant, nasty, insulting and cross-eyed. I'm surprised the office hasn't been hit by an inspector for fire hazard as there is no walking space between all the machinery and file cabinets everywhere. How ironic that a fire safety supplier can be so careless and above all filty. This has been the worst office environment yet. I feel sorry for the three ladys he has working for him, as they are terrified of him. I hope they all wake up and send him where he belongs. He is also a thief, as he overcharges his customers. His technicians make 25 an hr and he charges $150 an hr. for service, which he multiplies by two techs and claims they did overtime for a client bill of over $2,000. I hope these companys wise up and search for another competitor. Desmond Burke needs a good weeping and be put in his place.
One more vote for how horrible the Firequench inc
Firetronics company is. They fire/hire people every week, just 2-3 people have expirience the rest 20 are new hires. It will be a big mistake to subcontract Firequench as it is dangerous operation that bring a lot of problems to your business.
The owner looks like falling apart cocaine addict that treat people worst than a numbers.
Firequench is full of negativity and hate. Avoid it at all costs.

Chassix in bristol, Indiana , aluminum foundry,new ventilation and will not turn it on! Smoke is hazy blue like driving across San Francisco bridge on foggy morning! Plus management runs and budgets their money like dope feens,and sexual harrassment, and are now filing bankruptcy, plus machines and robots from 1926. Can't sell it either,here is an idea, sell it to the scrap yard! Tom ogore ( Detroit pistons owner) tom do ur self a favor, shut it down and scrap that peice!

August of 2012 Mary found my resume on Monster and called me in for an interview. I have a Masters degree and a strong background in Operations. At the time, they were looking for an Ops Director. After a few interviews and a large salary agreement, I decided to take the job. Little did I know I was in for the most horrific experience of my life. It took all that I had to last two months. They provided me no training, and half way through my first day, Desmond was screaming at me to have 25 people in for interviews by end of day (he's constantly looking for technicians because the majority last only 1 week). I was screamed and cursed at on a daily basis. I had binders and papers thrown at me. Drawers slammed so close to my hands that I'm surprised I still have fingers. His office/service manager Mary is no better.
It is unfortunate yet true-every negative point made here about this company is 100% correct. Not one thing is exaggerated. Desmond is a sick sociopath with no respect for human life. He is a thief and a liar. It COMPLETELY boggles my mind that this man is still in business. Now that I have my life back together, I would like to pursue some sort of legal action. He deserves to be shut down. If anyone has some idea of how to get this started, count me in!!!
I was Sales Manager there for a couple of months and had the exact same experience. The Field Service Manager and I went to the DAs office and let them know about all the illegalities, they never called us back. Maybe because of the huge amount of graft money Second hands out. He had the contract to maintain the system at the empty American Stock Exchange building. He would have guys go there, check in and take naps. He would be able to bill 8 hours per day at 150/he. That is 4500/ with times 52 weeks per year. That works out to over 200,000/your. Times 10 years is 2 million bucks. The plan is to lean the bbuilding when someone signs a purchase contract and agree to take 75% settlement.

One Manager (Joe) that lied got people fired and in employed. The problem is he got unaffected by his screwup and he still working while myself and others are out of work.
Why is CV still letting this guy still work with them!!!
I heard he is in a great mood knowing that exemployees still don't have jobs because of him. My labor lawer is talking to CV about hime to see what thay can do..
Me and other want our jobs back.
I heard about that situation and that was screwed up. I worked at VM in 2012 when they started with cablevision and everything was fine until a few months before they lost their contract in 2014 Joe was cool to work with but marsha was the pain in the ass and people left because of her too

I applied for a position with Firetronics formerly know as Firequench. I was interviewed and recently hired by Desmond Burke. I agree with you
He is a bit unprofessional and belligerent.

The worst company I have worked for BY FAR, and I have worked for a fair few bad companies, was Carewatch. The bad reputation of this company is something else, check out the reviews online. Con artists.
