    Pros

    The employees, from the temporary workers, field staff and corporate level you will find that they all are proud to represent MDT Personnel every day, as it's a great place to work because of the team work and support from upper management. Within most of our store locations we have hundreds of temporary employee come to us for work assignments daily, weekly or monthly; it is for this reason that our company is so strong we provide work for most everyone that makes themselves available for assignments consistently.

    Pros

    MDT is independently owned and operated by Mike Traina. He has a truly open door policy where you can take your ideas to him and discuss. It is a flat organization. They have several training functions throughout the year. Top performers get treated to Performance Club at a nice resort once a year. It really makes you strive to work harder.

    Cons

    Since it is a new company they do not offer a matching 401k program yet.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work. The strives that you make each day make coming to work a pleasure. I couldn't be happier.

    I worked at MDT Personnel full-time

    Pros

    Passion for people is central and was encouraging.

    Cons

    Middle management were unable to keep a clear vision of the market potential, or be honest about company's real strengths, and weaknesses.

    Advice to Management

    Develop a vision, and stick to it....turn over costs too much.

    I have been working at MDT Personnel full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    MDT Personnel has raised the bar for employees at every level, and in doing so has created a culture of incredible loyalty and pride in being a member of this organization. Every level of Management has an open door policy so that I know my ideas, concerns, suggestions and observations are listened to and responded to. The owner, Mike Traina, has infused this workforce with a sense of ownership and responsibility within everyone so that we all succeed, together. I feel very lucky to be employed by MDT Personnel, it truly has become an Employer of Choice in the staffing industry. The Corporate office is accessible, they hold educational and team building Webinars very frequently, recognize and reward Employees of the Month at the Corporate, Branch and Sales levels, and have a yearly Performance Club for employees that have met and exceeded the benchmark set to have gone above and beyond all year. The support given to the field by Corporate, and the incredible work that all our Branches and Regions give to our clients is the reason MDT continues to grow and succeed with loyal employees! I'm one of the lucky ones.

    Cons

    Matching 401K contributions would be a plus when that happens. I know that it's simply because we're a newer company and it will come at some point.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the open communication and Regional Round-tables that have begun. There isn't one member of Upper Management that I don't feel I can't call, or email, at any given time about anything on my mind. Thank you for being accessible, responsive and making sure every person on your team knows they're important to the overall success of our company.
