    Pros

    Mending some wounds, owner has made some big moves to advance the company. Rising stock, rising capital, and rising stars. Good place again, and a fresh new outlook. Been there years and years, and years, doesn't look to be going away anytime soon.

    Cons

    Who doesn't take a beating and get back into the ring? GTM does, and remains the heavyweight champion!

    Advice to Management

    Going strong, getting stronger. Great job in a tough round of hits, bruises, and below the belt sucker punches. Keep on fighting, determination and dedication have won the battle!


  2. Licking it's wounds, but still a great place to work.

    Pros

    Humble people who own that 2014 was awful. They were honest when hiring me that they are on the rebound, but it was a hard bounce. Constant coaching and advancement opportunities. They don't have the lowest prices, so they know that service has to be awesome.

    Most of the managers and supervisors worked their way up, they've earned my respect.

    Free Genesis Membership. Discounts at Coco Bolos, Cox Brothers, Powercat Grill, Firestone, Freddy's and other places around town. Free on site Health Clinic for immediate family.

    Cons

    Needs a PR makeover. Lots of customers are having a hard time trusting us after last year's fall. Software is kinda glitchy, but improving. Still more reliable than some retailers. They seem to hire cute young blondes...and it's mostly done over the phone.

    Advice to Management

    Challenge your employees. Help us set reasonable goals, and push us to attain them. Keep up the Shout Out program

    Pros

    Fast paced, mostly great people, good benefits

    Cons

    Management doesn't have a clear vision, lack of trust in the leadership, trying to do too much too fast, not always honest about company status with employees

    Advice to Management

    Be honest. Treat your employees with respect. Give them what they deserve for the years of service.

    Pros

    The company is becoming more and more innovative with their uniforms and decoration options. They are very price competitive and a pretty laid back atmosphere.

    Cons

    If you are not from Manhattan, went to school from Manhattan or work in their corporate office, you are not fully considered on certain situations. I looked at it as a fraternity because there would be times where people only on the inside came first instead of listening to other on the outside. If you had the connection, you got the job, even if you weren't fully qualified.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees who are out in the field.

    Pros

    The company has a very family-like feel to it and everyone who works there is very supportive. The "team" aspect of working there is really important. Everyone works really hard to get all tasks accomplished.

    Cons

    The pay isn't fantastic and it can be a little stressful during busy season. There was a very high turn-over rate while I was there.

    Pros

    This company employees very young people. It could be a good job or start for an internship. Located in a good city.

    Cons

    Leadership makes very poor decisions. The owner is very self centered. The break rooms are gross. The money is terrible.

    Pros

    We like to GET THINGS DONE around GTM! There is always something to do or someone who needs help! I like to stay busy and feel like I accomplish something at work each day and I definitely get that feeling here. If I have questions about something I'm working on, I can go to a coworker or my supervisor and they will help me out!

    Cons

    Sometimes I have to work overtime to get some of my tasks accomplished because there are not enough hours in the day.

    Pros

    GTM allows team members to grow within the company. Since working at GTM I have had the opportunity to work in more than one department and to move up in position more than once. GTM provides the opportunity for team members to try different positions and move into the one they feel is the best fit. GTM promotes a team environment and pushes team members to work together and develop ideas that better our organization. GTM has began revitalizing events that bring the departments together and aid in team building.

    Cons

    We are still trying to rebound from last years difficulties, but we are headed in the right direction. Busy season can be crazy, but the stress and long hours are always worth the reward.

    Advice to Management

    Continue listening to your team members, they provide awesome feedback.
