I worked at Knight Enterprises Management

Pros

Patriotism; you know your work is supporting the troops which can go a long way terms of motivation.

Pays the bills.

Cons

Low wages.

Unstable work environment, direction changes daily at times.

Lack of respect and appreciation of employees.

Benefits packages are not as desirable as they may seem.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

In Stephen R. Covey's "The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People", the seventh step is sharpening the saw; i.e., taking care of your investment so that it continues to produce for you. Sadly, this simple principle is somehow lost on Knight's. Employees are treated as a liability, rather than an investment

    I have been working at Knight Enterprises Management full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    High quality product supporting our military. I like working in a small, American owned manufacturing business where I feel my opinions and ideas are appreciated.

    Cons

    Negative attitudes and resistance to change from some of the long term staff. Entitlement mentality that the family owes the staff more than jobs and pay?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep moving forward with the positive changes currently happening. Continue hiring experienced leaders and then allow them to implement changes needed to continue moving forward.

    I worked at Knight Enterprises Management full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Firearms assembly knowledge, fellow employees are as down-trodden as you will be if hired and offer sympathy.

    Cons

    Low pay unless you are a friend of Reed Knight and land a management level position. Poor part quality offers lots of chances to do the same work twice. Good advice from the technicians with hands on knowledge is ignored. High turn-over rate so don't get to know anyone well. Don't ever expect a raise or to climb the company ladder. A promotion will probably not qualify for a raise.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make a difference or fall in behind all the other yes men. Treat your employees better. Work on parts scheduling and inspections. Pay your employees what they are worth so they want to stay.
