    Better options out there, don't be fooled

    Auction (Current Employee)
    Phoenix, AZ

    ProsThe work is pretty easy to figure out and managers kinda let you do your own thing and work at your own pace. They also are okay with felons which is hard to find a place that allows felons to work at.

    ConsThis place has really high turnover, especially in the warehouse. A lot of employees just complain about the place all the time. There is really no advancement once you are hired because managers are either related or are personal friends with the owner. The pay is below what i expected it to be and the benefits (medical) are really expensive for familys and not really worth it. The managers all talk about values but nobody practices them. Some reviews on here are right on the money and I think some reviews are fake and made up by managers - they have talk about postings here in meetings.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFigure out why turnover is so high. I do not think an auction place should employ felons.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    We think employee reviews are important and unfortunately as in all things most people don’t compliment what is going well it is just those that don’t have a right fit with a company that reaches out ... More

    Fair place to work

    Administration (Current Employee)
    Phoenix, AZ

    ProsValues employees, great benefits, work with your schedule. Wants to motivate employees, embrace the employee goals. Has an auctioneer school that brings in people from the across the country.

    ConsNot a lot of room for advancement. Only position is if someone leaves a higher level position. Very little advancement for line level employees

    Difficult

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Phoenix, AZ

    ProsChanging work environment, interesting people, auctions can be fun. The actual auctioneers were great.

    ConsLow pay, job expectations were a moving target, unreasonable owner, frequent weekend work. Good accounts were cherry picked and given to one employee. HEAVY turnover. Inconsistent company values. Frequently dealing with extremely dissatisfied customers, who for all intents and purposes, were right.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIf building an empire and being the Queen of that empire is the goal, then they have done a great job. If however, AS wants to make the company all it could be, they would be better served in putting aside their personal desires, and listening to, or hiring people who challenge their ideas. This could help make this company so much better. I enjoyed my time working there, but I am relieved that I moved on. Sometimes, principal is worth more than a job and a salary, even in this trying economic time.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    It has been a great place to work!

    Administration (Current Employee)
    Phoenix, AZ

    ProsI am a current employee of Auction Systems. From the top down, this Company cares about the employees. They show that through training, daily meetings and updates, feedback to employees, sharing information about the Company’s growth, skip level meetings, giving us information and the tools we need, and by providing access to a coach that helps with personal and business goals. The company continues to grow and employees who have goals to achieve more have been placed in new positions. One of my co-workers just became an Assistant Manager. I am an hourly employee and it bothers me to read the other reviews on this site. I think I know who has written those postings. Those are from the people who did not want to do what it takes to grow and achieve more. Those employees had bad attitudes, created drama, talked badly about the Managers and no longer at the company. I enjoy the opportunities here, the type of work, and the people I work with.

    ConsNot really any to me!!

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep on looking for ways to make it a great place to work

    Management? What management?

    Warehouse (Current Employee)
    Phoenix, AZ

    ProsI have the freedom to work at my own pace for the most part, and I work with some hardworking, fun people who make the days at work fly by.

    ConsThere is no leadership in the company whatsoever. The warehouse manager doesn't really care, and we can't respect her. Morale is bad, especially in the warehouse, and has been for as long as I've been here.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe owner should stop focusing on her China location and concentrate on her Phoenix location, and hire some people with management skills. This could be a great place to work if she did a better job at retaining great employees instead of stifling their creativity, eventually forcing them to leave out of frustration.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Very limited growth potential with poor management.

    Warehouse (Current Employee)
    Phoenix, AZ

    ProsThe product is very diverse and your day is often dynamic. The workday can go by quickly with 2 standard breaks and a lunch. Some days are harder than others but you work at your own pace independently. Coworkers are a very close and fun group.

    ConsThe management here is a mess with questionable qualifications. Managers constantly de-value and de-motivate employees. The owner is opening a China auction house and has no vested interest in her Phoenix warehouse. The managers do not grow their employees and lack leadership skills or ability to motivate employees. There is limited growth potential for employees and no raises (management told each employee they are capped at $11 and not to expect more) The company prefers to hire external candidates for new positions. Pay is subpar for the qualifications and a general warehouse order picker makes more money. No overtime.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet in touch with the operations of your warehouse and address employee concerns. Increase skip level meetings. Develop employee retention programs to decrease attrition of quality employees. Stop moving around the dead weight within the company and give raises instead of rrplacing poor employees. Use Rick better to keep aware of the real employee relations issues and retain your quality employees.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
