    I have been working at Watco Companies full-time (more than an year)


    Great company, they really do care. Its great that they are located across the country. The company is growing every day and opportunities are always present.


    The pay is on the low side and sometimes advancing isn't about what you know but who you know.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Customer first includes your employees. Growing so fast the old company culture has all but eroded and they have yet to establish a new one that seems uniform across the entire company.

    Positive Outlook

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 7 weeksinterviewed at Watco Companies in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and received a call back 7 weeks later. I was at work when I got the call so I scheduled the phone interview later that afternoon during my lunch break at 1 pm. The interviewer called at 1:07 pm

    It was explained to me that they were slow to respond because of someone being on maternity leave. They asked if I was still interested in the position. I told them that I had already been hired, so it would depend on the salary being offered. I was informed that the position was an entry level position and they were offering $32,000. As this was less than what I was making I informed them that I was not interested and thanked them for the opportunity.

    Note to Management: Since there is no room for negotiations in your salaries, might I suggest that you include the salary information in your job posting. It would save your people and those looking for employment time and effort.
