Pros

A weekly paycheck is about all you could count on for being consistent. The Maintenance Manager was a nice person, but employees ran the show. Some employees pick and choose the hours they work.

Cons

Poor management and inexperienced supervisors are going to hurt this location. Mechanics used their company issued phones to order parts when they wanted to, but only if it was convenient for them. They liked to go pick parts up to get out of the shop for a while each day.

Advice to Management

Your managers are an issue. Human Resources shows favoratism.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees like people. Employees have problems too. Talk with them when you see a problem. Be mentors and not just bosses. The turnover rate is tremendous. Management needs to work closer with their employees and help in anyway possible to make working this difficult job more manageable.

    Employees have input that may help the company. Our middle management needs help but their " I know everything" and "Im the boss, your the employee" attitudes will not help the company grow.
    Hudson Republic recently took over Hernando co. They have numerous employees who have worked the area with the previous company. There are problems that these employees can help fix. The egos of the management is preventing the branch from correcting these problems. The management needs to learn how to utilize these resources.
