    Pros

    Pay and benefits are comparable with other dealerships in our area. Facilities in showroom and lounge are kept nice. Heat in the shop works very well, and for the most part we have what tools we need to complete repairs.

    Cons

    Management in this company is either young with no experience in the trucking industry or has some experience in the field, but has a warped view of work load and stress level of coworkers within their dealership. The companies mission statement looks good on the wall, but it seems the companyvis more concerned with gross profit and productivity that the true health and well being of their employees. The "blue collar" worker is over worked, pushed to meet deadlines created by management, and is not adequately trained for the positions they hold. This company also hires to many young technicians with very little experience and expects them to produce efficiency of that of someone with 10 plus years of experience. On the other side of that coin they expect the experienced technician to train the younger inexperienced technicians on how to do their job, however if their efficiency drops below 90% they have to answer for it and face possible disciplement. Raises within this company is also based mainly on efficiency not by work ethic or capability.

    Advice to Management

    Corporate level: Look closely at management within your company, theirs a lot of smoke and mirrors within your company.
    Branch level: Take pride in your branch, treat your employees like you would like to be treated! Live up to what the mission statement says weither or not corporate does. Make your branch the dealership everyone wants to work at, not the dealership everyone hates working at and wants to leave. If your not part of a change within this company, then your aiding to the problem!

  3. Great co-workers, poor management.

    Pros

    The people I work with are great. Decent pay.

    Cons

    Poor upper management, pay seems to be based on time not performance. Unpleasant core customers.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to all your department employees, show you care. Stick to the rules, no favoritism. Give raise based on performance not time with the comany. Show some appreciation for your employees every day not just during yearly functions.

    Pros

    A paycheck. Minimal benefits available. Locations around country allow for possible relocation.

    Cons

    Benefits are sub par. Pay is low. Disgruntled employees due to negative atmosphere and lack of advancement. Unaddressed mental health issues among workers creates hostile work environment. Vacation and time off is pathetic.

    Advice to Management

    Change your priorities! View the company's success from the bottom up. Take care of employees via pay increases and promotion. Set the standard in the industry, don't just keep up. Become a great place to work and you will attract quality talent that wants to stay. Better health insurance is a MUST!

    Pros

    There are no pros to this company. They treat their employees like dirt, and lie deliberately in their mission statement about how they care so much about their employees. They don't care about you, they care about how much money you will make for them.

    Cons

    Abusive environment, abusive management, hostile work environment, take complete advantage of every situation, and horrible PTO program. Good luck if you try to resign, they will do everything in their power to make you suffer. VP's make million dollar bonuses, but they can't afford to give you one day off due to weather. They would rather you risk your life, than to give you a paid day off. Do not work for this company.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees like you state in your mission statement, with the respect that they deserve.

    Pros

    Company ensures you get the greatest training available. Pay is good. People employed by this company are good to work with. Boss at my location is heavily involved in the workers success.

    Cons

    Health insurance is going to suck in 2014.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the health insurance that most employees already have. The new plan in 2014 is going to empty pockets of the employees.

    Pros

    Stable company, has never had a mass layoff or a bankruptcy. Many great administrators working for this company.

    Cons

    No raises, even after asking year after year. Abusive work loads for administrative staff. Promotions have more to do with being young college graduates than they do with skill or competence. Abusive managers that have no management skills. Sales people are provided extremely poor training. Then when they can't produce the company will change their pay to commission only. This forces the salesperson to quit so the company doesn't have to pay unemployment.

    Advice to Management

    Do not disregard administrative employees. Each branch has an employee benefits account, if you can't provide raises then a few gift cards throughout the year are a minor expense that will let the employee know they are appreciated and create more loyalty from the employee. Don't force administrative staff to beg for raises. Be proactive, don't expect workers to work without goals and without pay raises for years on end and then wonder why they're unhappy.

    Pros

    Pay. They pay very well for the job duties. Overtime when it is available is lucrative. There are some good people that work for this company, but too often they are marginalized because they conflict with the bad culture that exists.

    Cons

    Pay, they pay well, but use it for leverage every chance they get. Management is poor and does not follow up with employee concerns, creating an atmosphere in which employees don't bother to get the things their contract entitles them to. Paperwork falsification in order to deflect blame is widespread, and endemic from the top to the bottom. Distrust of the system and those around you creates an environment in which 'holding on to what you have regardless of the cost' promotes breaches of integrity, distrust and cynicism amongst employees and management. Falsification of paperwork, job responsibilities and responsibility is what keeps the people in the positions they are in. Greed is the mantra of those that thrive in this company.

    Benefits are being squeezed out. Costs to the employees are increasing even as the company reports increasing profits. The Company consistently increases the cost to it's employees while reducing their own. The benefits that are available often are not available due to dysfunctional portals through which employees are encouraged to self-service. The corrections to these portals in order to make them usable are seriously delayed or non-existent, creating expirations of eligibility that are not corrected. Employees are expected to use services management would not use themselves given a choice.

    Advice to Management

    Do it right, do it once. There is nothing to hide from when you accept responsibility. Money isn't everything.
