I worked at Star West

Pros

When you respect management, you get respect. They expect hard work, but reward for it. The corporate office is very community oriented and often enjoy food parties/gatherings.

Cons

Long hours, over work employees to the max. The benefits are not great. There is no work/life balance for empoyees with families.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't work employees so hard and increase the benefits package (paid time off, holidays, better medical, retirement) to increase retention of employees.

    I worked at Star West

    Pros

    entry level positions are abundant. mechanical aptitude, and ability to work unpredictable schedules are the only requirements. as a trade the cost of tools is very low.

    Cons

    as a trade the opportunity to grow as a satellite installer are still limited due to the technology and clients provided. the company resources are only given to those that have seniority. there are very qualified managers but their assistants that fill in for them on their time off are close to being useless

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    owner has an arrogant approach to business whom expects growth without sacrifice or study. the confidence is there, however the competence lags behind due to lack of real and current knowledge or workplace situations and the tools required to meet standards.

  2.  

    If the Senior Management would stick with an idea instead of getting scared and jumping the gun to shut it down.
