    Pros

    Good pay and benefit package

    Cons

    Risk and reward are key terms. What are you willing to give to get and how long can you stay on top of the game?There are many turnovers in a tight economy. Constant struggle between parent company European mindset and US division.(right hand does not know what the left sometimes does ).

    Pros

    Good office environment, with a high level of diversity. HR department was generally helpful, and tries to maintain a good atmosphere. Benefits are pretty good, too. Ethics and accountability are a core part of the culture.

    Cons

    Some communication from management was inconsistent, and pay could be more competitive. IT technical support did not always resolve problems adequately.

    Pros

    ATLAS COPCO HAS SOME OF THE MOST UP TO DATE EQUIPMENT AND IS PRETTY WELL ORGANIZED.

    Cons

    TONS OF MULTI-TASKING FOR VERY LOW PAY. BAD SHIFT HOURS.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    EMPLOYEES ARE VERY UPSET WITH WAGES. PEOPLE SHOULD GET PAID FOR ALL THE TRAINING THEY HAVE LEARNED. IT WILL BE HARD FOR YOU TO KEEP YOUR PRODUCTIVE WORKERS IF SOMETHING DON'T CHANGE.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Rock Hill, SC
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Rock Hill, SC

    Pros

    Has the potental to be a great place to work.

    Cons

    They plant is mostly manned by tempory employees with high turn over. Management demands unrealistc production. Management does not support the line, and fails to provide the tools needed to do the job safely and in a timely manner. Many of the employees are either drunks or pill heads who do not show up to work on a regular basis. Planners or suppliers do not provide the proper on hand supply of parts to keep the line producing products and provide hours for the employees to provide for thier families. The pay is subpar for the type of product that is being provided, management does not provide training for the employees regular or temp.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get less top heavy and provide support to the production line. Support the production employees and not treat them like second class citizens.

    Service Technicians are more than just parts changers.

    Current Employee - Compressor Service Technician

    Pros

    Good benefits. Decent pay available depending on experience and know how. Freedom to be your own boss with a company vehicle.

    Cons

    Management is made up of all salesman. Any service technician (not parts changer) knows that salesmen have no clue what it's like in the field. Most have no idea what they are selling.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Technicians that complete work on time or under time, follow rules, learn fast, and do everything asked of them are more valuable than the service technician that is acutally just a parts changer!
