    Pros

    Great Co workers.
    Great hours.
    Good pay.
    Company decided to convert over to union which was a really good step.

    Cons

    Horrible room for growth in wages.
    Was threatened to be fired if I went to the union hall for my promotion once I reached my hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be legit and dont hide so many things from your workers in the field.
    Give promotions when they are actually recieved and respect all your workers.

    I worked at Datalink full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good co-workers among the rank and file.

    Cons

    Management is clueless. Hours are 8:30-5:00 for some positions, but work exceeds those hours and you need management approval for "OT" that goes beyond 5pm. Management rarely approves OT since they receive bonuses if they stay within budget. Unless someone wants to be absolutely buried in work for pay that doesn't justify that work, they have to work beyond 5pm.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get over yourselves. You're overcompensated for being underqualified. A big ego and a bigger pay check off of the backs who TRULY do the work that get you your numbers doesn't compensate for a lack of intelligence or lack of spine.
