Pros

They will teach you a lot and make sure you completely understand your job.
Every supervisor I had but one was awesome and really seemed to care about the employees.
Opportunities for growth within company.
Solid Benefits

Cons

Lower than average pay scale for the industry at least for production workers
Mandatory overtime up to 60 hours a week
Time is not given off without a consequences.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Most management does their job very well. To one I would say to get to know your employees a bit more and don't just give negative feedback if you are not going to give positive feedback when one goes above and beyond

    A place to work when you can`t find anywhere else

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Eagle, WI
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Eagle, WI

    Pros

    The work is easy with not much thought involved.Able to change jobs or departments(just takes forever) If you keep your head down and do your job you wont have any problems.

    Cons

    The pay seems substandard. Management is terrible,with very few exceptions.Have a question or something is not working the way it should who should you ask? A supervisor seems logical,no not here all they know is their "effectivity "reports,and don`t seem to have the time or knowledge to answer questions or address concerns you may have or they will "get back to you",which seldom happens.A general lack of respect toward manufacturing employees.Training is very substandard,a you`ll figure it out,atomsphere

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make Generac a place people want to stay,not a place people are waiting to leave.
    Drop the elitist management attitiude,have supervisors learn and know their area. Show respect to the people you supervise or manage.Pay quality employees a quality wage(outside of the office too)

    Pros

    Leader in power generation. The company has respected products in their market and a great history. High potential for growth if changes are made to improve relations with employees and pay scale.

    Cons

    Management is very ignorant of employees and respect they give. Very sub standard pay scales for area in technical help. Turnover is very high because of work environment and no attempt to improve it. There is a lack of a coordinated plan to manage projects to complete on time. Very vertically managed company with old school employees at odds with new innovative thinkers that could move this company into a higher class.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start to address poor reputation as an employer in the area. Most people either get stung by this company and leave or stay away because of its reputation. Remove old school work environment office rules and become flexible and respect diversity.
