I worked at Altec Industries

Pros

The people are very friendly and helpful. A young engineering work force that is very social. The company actually promotes social gatherings and sponsors several sporting teams. Pay is average for industry, but the benefits for full time employees are above average. There are plenty of opportunities to dive in and get your hands dirty.

Cons

Takes time to acclimate to the industry and jargon used in everyday conversation. Training is mainly trial by fire which can be difficult for some. Gathering information for projects can be difficult because most employees keep a fairly busy schedule. Weekly and daily presentations can get stale.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Develop a comprehensive training program to properly expose new employees to the industry and the culture of Altec.

    I have been working at Altec Industries

    Pros

    Altec has a value system that shows what is important to them and they stick by it: Customer first, Enjoyment of work, Family, Financial stability, Integrity, People are our greatest strength, Quality, Spiritual development, and Teamwork.

    Cons

    A lot of focus on employees who have been here for a long period of time. This causes the older employees to think that Altec owes them something. Many time you can find newer hourly employees that have a higher level of performace then older hourly employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make it easier to remove poor performers and have better processes for replacing employees.

    I have been working at Altec Industries full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    It is a growing division of Altec which is the industry leader in the electrical utility industry. Because of that you are on the forefront of the future of the company and get a lot of input in things as our division of the company grows.

    Cons

    Very blue collar field which is not something everyone is cut out for. Also, as with all sales jobs sometimes you have to make moral sacrifices to bond with a customer. Altec won't put this pressure on you to make those compromises but you still feel pressure from customers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Honestly they are doing a great job at Altec Supply, maybe be a little quicker to give new hires raises when they earn them but other than that no complaints here.
