    Paid for my school

    Lots of overtime
    Great pay rate and raises
    Flexible schedule
    Free housing/housing allowance
    Good cheap insurance

    Poor communication
    Poor training such as never got CPR, proper H2S, and some new employees are by themselves when they shouldn't be.

    Communicate between co workers and management on issue and what they want specifically could be better.

    Pros

    Bonuses are great and having food paid for is something I have not had with any other company. However it's as disorganized as it could get

    Cons

    Disorganized can never find parts

    Pros

    For the most part, work is available for those that want to try. Overall, it's not a bad company to work for.

    Cons

    Dangerous physical demanding low pay trucks are heavily used and they do show wear that adds to the difficulties of the job. The local management is young. No compensation premiums for night drivers or hazardous materials driver which takes away from the experience.

    Advice to Management

    Make your employes feel appreciated and valued.

    Pros

    Basic has many services it performs, allows a person to learn many jobs and new skills within the company

    Cons

    Advancement within the company is possible, but who is in charge of the yard/office is the deciding factor. At my yard advancement is pretty easy when it becomes available

    Pros

    Good benefits and good work life balance... At our yard they frequently bought food for us. Occasion small gifts from vendors to Basic Employees at our yard.

    Cons

    Lots of family preference for jobs. Occasional power politics in management. Some managers are in their position for who they know not because of what they know.

    Advice to Management

    Offer better pay to employees. Whether management or hourly employees... Lots of management turnover due to low salaries.
