Former Employee - Electrical Engineer in Lexington, KY

I worked at Interlake Mecalux

Pros

Autonomy and a lot of good learning (you do all the job functions), not much supervision you make your own success (Interlake is a small system integrator)

Cons

Low pay, high health care premiums, travel is high to locations unknown and unpredictable, sales margins are unrealistic engineers must work within predefined profit goals for a project

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Review sales force quotes for profit margin projections, add more technical sales personnel, develope a advancement plan, nobody was promoted during my tenure

No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Interlake Mecalux full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    My fellow employees were the only reason that I worked for Interlake Mecalux for as long as I did

    Cons

    Most challenging, has to be the Owner.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great Management Team, the Owner should leave them alone and let them run the business. It maybe a little rough now since most of the best people have moved on. But, there are a few Diamonds still left. You should update the Management Team. Company CEO you have listed Jose Luis Carrillo is retired.

    I have been working at Interlake Mecalux full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Really good Insurance, they will hire anyone. 15 days of PTO, 2 floating holidays

    Cons

    Don't erase your emails, everyone is willing to throw you under the bus. If applying please ask what is the commission rate because it is under 1%, The pay is very low and no room for growth. The company is wanting to have one sale's man per state so don't expect to be making to much from the 28K base salary. No training is available because the company has lost a lot of personnel, because the company really sucks. All of the reviews are true. Also the Engineering Position pays the same 28K

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be upfront about the Sales position, and what it entails.
