This setup was installed by the owner of a paint store. Do I have to explain what I found wrong here, or does an electrician need to be spoon fed here?

Comments? Outside pull box in alleyway!

It looks like two connectors are being used because the pipe was a little too short. Measure twice cut once.

Thought lock-rings are only supposed to be used to secure the connector to the inside of the panel or enclosure.

Not to mention with that setup you're likely to get water leaking into that coupling.

Is that a Meyer's hub on the bottom? I can't quite tell.

Meyer's Hub it is, and the wiring method is RMC not EMT.

There are two possibilities here. Either someone used a liquid tight flex connector on rigid conduit because they were too lazy to thread the conduit, or I need a spoon.
