    does not offer former training. They chose to rely on employee to employee training. Does not give fair company bonuses.

    Speak up! Tell your manager what the employees are really feeling.

    Pros

    Mostly easy work, fast paced, almost never boring. Above average pay for work.

    Cons

    Low experience in department management. Lack of leadership\direction. Poor communications and follow up. Seems to be more of a parts changer environment, not the maintenance machinist style. No fabrication and very little troubleshooting. All replace and contract out Will work you to death, no work life balance. You are pointed if removed from the building via ambulance.

    Advice to Management

    Stop allowing one least seniority manager to continue to run every one like he is still in the military.

    Pros

    Good benefits. Decent pay. Love meeting with customers to discuss their business and coming up with solutions to their problems.

    Cons

    Upper management has no direction for company. Not enough time given to field to execute properly. Takes too long to get things approved.

    Advice to Management

    Have a strategy and stick to it. Plan your business further out. Train employees for the next level instead of letting employees get complacent in current positions.

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. Average vacation accrual.

    Cons

    Schedule is early starts with split days off. You work 60 hours a week and only get paid for 40. Unrealistic expectations. Your always the bad guy so watch you back. No career ladder because the next step up does't make sense, more hours and butt chewing' for less pay. You can never call in sick and no lunch breaks.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your salesmen better and they will want to work harder for you. Stop acting like everyone is overpaid. Everyone I worked with worked very hard and deserved the pay.

    Pros

    Good pay, and good benefits. Nothing else to mention here, as this position had very few Pros.

    Cons

    Expectations extremely high. Little to no support from management. No holidays off *was not mentioned during interview or job offer* Long hours 10+ everyday. Depot suffered from massive shipping errors on a daily basis. Which resulted in poor morale from all the IO's.

    Advice to Management

    Provide support when needed. Resolve issues with distribution center. Make your presence known. Be honest during the interview and employment process. Offer real disciplinary actions for employees/IO's that do not comply with the rules in the depot.
