    Big changes for the worst the longer you work here

    I worked at Masco Contractor Services

    Pros

    The people are great, Co workers become like family. And of course it is a paycheck regardless if how much below the actual cost if living your pay is. Realize raises come every 4-5 years but inflation us constant

    Cons

    Cons....no clear communication between management and employees, several managers with little to no management skills, who promoted these people? Can't they see what we see? Ridiculous is the lying they do,the back stabbing they do, the holier than thou they feel they are. We are all cut from the same cloth regardless of who YOU think you are, you may want to take a look in the mirror and ask yourself if this is the person you wanted to be. As Co- workers we should be building each other up not trying to tear others down. Whether your name is Mr. VPO or a data entry clerk...etc. extremely disappointing experience

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not sure I have any it just seems like as long as our Higher ups have millions, they won't ever understand how it feels as another human being to stand at Walmart holding a sign that says please help I'm hungry...

    I have been working at Masco Contractor Services

    Pros

    I am still trying to find one, i am just typing s to make 20 words, GD wont allow me to post othrwise.

    Cons

    If you are extended an offer think 100 times before you join. I am looking but difficult to find any in daytona, for sure gone by next yr.

    5 reasons why not to join

    1) Recently in Aug they laid off 100+ employees, looking at this chaos many left by their own and now they are hiring. No vision.

    2) Its no longer part of Masco corp, big reason to worry.

    3) There are no other good/big employers in daytona so if u r moving from out state think before u make a move.

    4) Managers hardly have anyone to manage, hardly any employees left.

    5) Very frequent layoffs, after every qtr results.

    Emp surveys are a hoax.

    So if u have another offer plz go for it, or ask the questions which i have put before you will come to know the truth.

    I also know management is forcing empl to write fake good reviews here so their rating goes up. If you read carefully CEO is approving only good ones, how is that even possible in any company ???

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None its like talking to a wall. Let them go down.

    I worked at Masco Contractor Services

    Pros

    Co-workers! Fortunately there were others that made the time enjoyable!

    Pay was good, come to find out it was only to compensate for the dysfunction!

    Cons

    As a professional I have never been so micromanaged! The environment in Daytona is awful, every move is watched and certain members of the Sr. leadership Team have challenges with trusting their team to make contributions to a company that is in great need of them!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit micromanaging, do as you say and trust the leaders within the organization to do their job!

    I have been working at Masco Contractor Services as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    The best reasons to work here are the opportunities to learn technology and the opportunities allowed to those which are open to such learning experiences.

    Cons

    I beleive that the challenges vary from day to day as this is a fast paced environment

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow those that want the opportunities to utilize the experience and talent others have.

    Pros

    Masco as brand is well known in housing industry. Not many to pen

    Cons

    When you join MCS as full time employee think you are on long term contract(Aka can be laid off anytime).
    Management is vision less . There is more senior mgmt than hands on employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please define a mission and vision for the company. Rest cane discussed later

    I have been working at Masco Contractor Services full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    As a subsidiary of Masco, they have survived the ecomonic downturn. This is a company full of great people who are being driven into the ground by a few at the top.

    Cons

    This company cares about making money [end of story]. They don't care about people, thier trade, the community, or each other. They create witch-hunts [they call them layoffs] as frequently as possible and are only interested in padding the pockets of the VPs at the expense of the previously-loyal working class.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When all you care about is money, you'll never make a dime. If nothing is good enough, perhaps you should look in the mirror.

    Pros

    Some employee incentives, flexibility with schedule, matching 2.5% of 401k, discounts with major brands as you will work for the parent company

    Cons

    Your pay is not a set figure. You will be hired to do one thing and trained to do another-in a different pay scale. Example is being hired for reception and doing order management. Loyalty will hurt you. If you are part of the original company before MCS took over, you have a number and they have already begun to do layoffs and firings nation wide. In a particular division, there have been demotions, firing of original staff (who know the business and products backwards and blindfolded), and bringing in new positions and filling them with people who have no construction background or desire to learn. The process from start to finish for a project seems so streamlined but is set up for failure in the real world. This is the result of the new management team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Educate yourselves on the industry before you make changes to structure, processes, and office support affecting jobs of many people nationwide.
