    I have been working at American Fence Company full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I love working for this company; they have a great starting wage, very skilled employees and supervisors to learn from, and we honestly provide the best products and service in the midwest.

    Cons

    The only downside (which isn't a downside really) is the difficulty of the labor. But it's a physical job, and I knew that from the git-go.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work, maybe undo the pay freeze.

    I have been working at American Fence Company full-time

    Pros

    They pay well enough to get people thru the door, and then you get used to the pay and feel stuck when you realize just how bad the company is but can't take a pay cut to start over again.

    Cons

    Very toxic environment, causes depressive state and anxiety. Constant sense of dread as to what mood the owner will be in, what plotting and scheming is going on and who will be the target of management's screaming, yelling and belittling. Definitely not pro-family and employees fear having to leave early or miss work for a sick child. Benefits package is terrible. Inappropriate relationship between the owner and an employee makes for explosive fights and door slamming seen by all. We have had extremely high turnover in branch management and the HR dept. in the past 2 years. If you work at a branch office or in the field, you are better off, but I do NOT recommend working inside the corporate (Omaha) office to ANYONE.

    Advice to Management

    Be kind, actually CARE, be accepting of family emergencies/needs, stop yelling, give people the benefit of the doubt, truly appreciate your employees, promote teamwork rather than causing division, fire toxic employees, and request early retirement for upper management. This is the only way it will be a good company again.
