    Pros

    Fair pay scale giving the industry standard. Thought I was going to retire with this company. Coal industry and the Obama Administration too this job as well as many others.

    Cons

    Management had no backbone. Although I was the assistant or associate, being called both, and being new to the industry had a lot to learn. Training in this management job as well as the next was scarce to none. But if called I would work for them again.

    Advice to Management

    I started with this company in management; since I have been in such a position for several years.


  2. I like working for the company but there is a lot of problems with the way things are run.

    Pros

    The pay and benefits are some of the best you will ever find. Other wise it's just a job.

    Cons

    Lack of support. No tools to work with. Junk service trucks.

    Advice to Management

    Need to step it up. When you are in management you can not sleep with the help. Cr

    Pros

    GCR is a Strong Company that is owned by Bridgestone Americas so it is stable.
    Good Benefits come with being owned by Bridgestone.
    Good Products also come with being owned by Bridgestone.
    Most of the people you work with are friendly and willing to help you.

    Cons

    I am not sure GCR would be able to make it as a stand alone company without Bridgestone.
    Mid level managers tend to look out for their own best interests.
    Poor training is provided. What training there is is done through Bridgestone.
    Little direction is given by mid level management in regards to performance until they decide to terminate someone.

    Advice to Management

    GCR needs to really look at their training procedures. This is the major weakness of the company and leads to a high rate of turnover.
