First year and half was great. Last six months was not so good.

Pros

Great benefits. Some of the people that work there are great!

Cons

If you are not family or don't know someone then you don't get to advance.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need to check on the Chattanooga office. A lot of bad things happened there, that were not right.

    Pros

    None that I can think of.

    Cons

    Health insurance is expensive; employee pay share, deductibles, covered care is preventative only, not sick ... bring back an HMO!

    Supervisors and managers need to pay more attention to their staff instead of bad mouthing them behind their backs, yelling at them, insulting and putting them down, swearing at them ... moral is bad, most employees there hate their jobs and only stay because of a failing workforce.

    Undeserving managers get rewarded, even though they do nothing for their staff. What open door, it really is made of glass. Two-way glass!

    Several employees are sick. Some are working past retirement. One often walks off the job, in anger, during the day, coming back the next. Several cause damage in the shop creating an unsafe work environment, repeatedly. Unequal overtime, it's a matter of favorites, not teamwork. Only one person works on call every night, while also working during the day. Mechanics are not given the chance to advance; no promotions, no raises, no transfers. Manager is late every day, usually unreachable. Mechanics clock in and sit around drinking coffee.

    I could go on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do right by your employees, all of them, on all shifts, or replace current shop management with someone who knows what they're doing, cares, doesn't bully, and doesn't make everyone hate their job.

    Pros

    Flexible schedule. Great Home/Work balance.

    Cons

    Little pay. No career advancement. The place is like quicksand once you get in its hard to leave.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take some classes on management
