Pros

Excellent leadership training, out of the box problem solving skill improvement, and interesting situations, are just some of the pro's to this company.

Cons

long hours and great responsibility are heavy factors on this job! Be prepared to work in some harsh weather and do so on a regular basis!

Advice to Management

Never forget the laborers and lower rung Team Members, or what they do on a daily basis to serve the customers and yourself. We are your first line of defense and your best support base if you have happy Team Members.

    Pros

    people are good , trying to change, outlook for next few years excellent, with many opportunities for growth . Successfully raised the safety standards across company , with dramatically strong commitment .

    Cons

    pay is lower than industry standards, morale is low and turnover high

    Advice to Management

    raise the basic pay across the board or high turnover will continue. Cannot continue paying so low or that is all you will get from employees- low effort.

    Pros

    The people, Watco have a lot of good people working for them. I have clearly made a couple good friends there and will stay in touch!

    Cons

    Benefits were too costly They didn't care about their team members

    Advice to Management

    the next time you shut down a facility ( or three ) at least have the decency to be there to say good bye to the employees they gave it their all for the company! I cannot believe you just let everybody walk away and nobody was there to send us off, not even a phone call on our last day!
