    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    All key yards should in force the same rules and polices throughout, no exceptions.
    Give raises to employees that demonstrate skills and perform well, not the employees who talk a good game and use the work of others as there own.

    Unprofessional Job

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    The only thing I liked about the job was being off at 11:30 am every other Friday but the rest is history.

    Cons

    Very unprofessional work atmosphere. Management talks to you crazy and the trainer doesn't like to answer questions. I give it less than a week before you place a complaint against her and what will happen? Nothing. The guy manager will take up for her and get annoyed you are complaining. Management is not involved with the employees only time they are is during 5*10 minute company meetings. I hope they hire a whole new staff...very big turn over rate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to be professional..need structure and need to be investigated for discrimination.

    Pros

    Coworkers are nice and friendly. Scheduling is flexible.

    Cons

    Management expects the workers to do their jobs for them. There is no regular pay raise schedule. There is no advancement schedule. Additional responsibilities are added without providing training.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't treat employees like just another resource. Stop expecting employees to give without giving something back.

    Can work on really interesting things, but company has no vision

    • Comp & Benefits

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    -Gives you a paycheck and sometimes a bonus.
    -Can work with some interesting technology
    -Management does provide some schedule flexibility and time off for family emergencies

    Cons

    -If there is a vision, management has never articulated it
    -Will not pay for equipment replacement, even if broken
    -People always seem to be the first cut unlike unnecessary expenses such as management's travel
    -Company's bureaucracy makes the Federal government look efficient
    -Company will lie about insurance and leave the employee hanging
    -No advancement unless you are in management's graces
    -No performance reviews
    -Employees tend to have anger issues. Will yell at other employees over minor events
    -Senior management treated significantly different than regular employees
    -Morale is overall low, and management will not address it
    -Practically no job security
    -Very little training
    -Managers do not discuss career plans with the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Articulate some sort of vision. The company is basically floundering, and senior management will not address it. Don't let rumors float around. They have sapped a significant amount of morale. Be honest and direct with employees.

    Pros

    The good side of working here is the safety program that they have in place. It is one of the best.

    Cons

    Bad communication from upper management all the way down to the lowest man on the list. To many loud mouth know it all new workers that only have 1 to 2 months experience in the position they are in. Very bad lack of leadership, especially in the rental equipment shop. Management states " no job is worth putting yourself at risk" and say not to rush or speed, but yet we have dispatch and several supervisors rushing up at every turn like NASCAR drivers. To many boss's are buddy, buddy with lower level employees which lands new hires in open positions instead of senior employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show employees more respect. Show employees who do a good job that they have been noticed and are appreciated. Communication needs to be improved greatly. Look into experience level before promoting to new positions. Stop the buddy factor from boss to employee and keep it professional. Look into higher pay for shop hands. Main reason alot are quitting is due to lack of pay and bad moral level stemming from management down.
