Former Employee - General Laborer in Whitewater, WI

I worked at Generac Power Systems full-time (less than a year)

Pros

The management is great. A lot of overtime, so the paychecks are nice and big. Good work is recognized and rewarded. Management understands that the work is a bit mind-numbing, so they offer daily lunch deals from around town and occasionally free Gatorade. Always get your breaks.

Cons

The starting pay is a bit low. It is factory work, so it can get pretty repetitious and become boring.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Drug test to give better pay.

    Former Employee - Territory Development Manager in Houston, TX

    I worked at Generac Power Systems full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Learned a tremendous amount about stand-by power generation. Most sales positions are field based, company supplied vehicle, laptop, cell phone, gas card and company credit card for business expenses

    Cons

    Company cars now have GPS trackers for "insurance purposes" but in reality its used to track your movements. Bonus formula at that time were based on several factors that as a Territory Manager you had no control over and formula was undecipherable. Compensation was average for outside sales, inside sales compensation was horrible, less than 30K.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give your Territory Managers more authority to address customer service issues with major accounts, especially regarding equipment failures and end user warranty issues.
