    It was alright

    Technician (Current Employee)
    Wayland, MI

    ProsThe people I worked with were generally good people. Everyone knew each other. The hours were not bad.

    ConsHard to make money as a technician. If you were on the repair side you had to constantly fight manufactures yourself to get paid. When getting paid a flat rate for jobs this wasted a lot of your time.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Worst Employer Ever

    RV Sales (Former Employee)

    ProsNon-management people are mostly nice

    ConsThe owners and upper level management are arrogant and don't interact with anyone who is not management. The owners could pass you in the store and never make eye contact with you. Dictates from the owners are passed down through the chain of command. The most macho, bad ass acting salesmen are the only ones respected. Management does not always keep their word with customers who have made a deposit, and will sell the unit out from under them to another customer if the deal makes the company more money. If in sales, you live on a small salary and draw, and your accumulated commissions are held in escrow until the end of the year, or when you leave the company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThey wouldn't take any advice if offered.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    At the forefront of the RV sales industry.

    Internet Sales (Current Employee)
    Wixom, MI

    ProsGreat hours and flexibility in schedule. Paid holidays, including paid time off between Christmas Eve and New Year's Day. High level of opportunity with the company. Largest family owned dealership in the world.

    ConsGreat benefits for a family owned company. 401K company that they use could be better and company match should be higher. Also, while health insurance is "free," there are high deductibles leading to high out of pocket expenses if you have any outside of regular exams needing to be done.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThere should be quarterly reviews for all employees.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Administrative Office Environment

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Wixom, MI

    ProsSales people are nice. Others outside of the administrative office are more willing to help you.

    ConsOvercrowded work area. Certain individuals allowed to either 'show' or 'voice' their frustrations in any manner they choose while other's are expected to understand that these just 'personality traits' and to put up with the unprofessional and disrespectful behavior. No training program on accounting software - only training as a situation arises.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Hard work with no payoff and always scared for your job if goals are not met even if unrealistic.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsMost Sundays off. Paid benefits but the health benefits are not very good with high deductibles and no dental or vision only Aflac is offered at your own expense but at least it is offered.

    ConsNo training. No advancement opportunities unless you are related to the owners or marry into the family. Top management is all family and most have no communication or leadership skills. Everyone fights because most positions are commission based and you always have to fight for your commission. No matter how hard you work you never hear how good of a job you have done and there are no employee reviews. If you want a raise you have to ask for it and will get denied or told to work harder. No vacations May thru June, no excpetions unless you are related to the owners.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEmployee reviews annually to make employees feel they are part of the team and not forgotten. Ask employees how they feel about the company anonymously and you would find out 99.9% if them are unhappy and what needs to be changed.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
