    I worked at Overhead Door full-time

    Pros

    It is nice to work for a company with reputable products; The sales group is working hard to make the company the #1 product in the industry; corporate office is in a nice location;

    Cons

    Values are not consistently followed; too many managers including unnecessary levels of management; technology is not up to par; Communication is terrible; Some folks in HR have a power trip with their position and access to information;

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    CEO should pay closer attention to VPs to make sure some VPs are not hiding the truth and passing blame onto others by terminating people who are trying to do the right thing.

    I worked at Overhead Door full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    It pays a rate of 11 per hour which is decent for low-skill entry level in DFW. It seems like there are some opportunities for growth if you are on the right-side of the bullish management. Free coffee and water. Decent facility. It's the type of place that's good for people who just want to clock 40 hours and not care too much about their work environment.

    Cons

    The call center leadership is stacked full of power-junkies and insecure control freaks -- from the manager to the supervisors. I personally didn't have any negative run-ins but seeing the way they would coordinate to 'get rid' of people on their bad side was something that just didn't set right with me. It was difficult to watch and it was the reason I ended up leaving.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start over with call center leadership and cultivate a culture of accountability where supervisors aren't allowed to bully, leverage against and harass their own employees.

    I have been working at Overhead Door

    Pros

    I like to work with my hands, so this is a great job for me. I also like to be able to look at something when it's finished and say to myself I did that.

    Cons

    A lot of time on the road away from my family. I spent 134 nights in a hotel last year.

  8.  

    Steady Work, Steady Paycheck. This job may not be glamorous, but it's satisfying.

    I worked at Overhead Door

    Pros

    If you enjoy slacking off you can get a way with just about anything before they decide they will let you go. Friendly peers.

    Cons

    It starts and ends with management. They generally lie and underpay their employees while billing ridiculous amounts. They put their people in unsafe conditions along with unsafe equipment. I would not recommend a future at this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    With low company mural you generally get less production.

    Pros

    Wages very competitive, but keep the job search going just to protect yourself. Things will get better once you leave.

    Cons

    If you need a job take the job but keep looking, this division is run by a person that should have his ethics checked and his treatment of people is horrible You know the old saying that you can’t make this stuff up well here goes

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dennis your president walking into offices and telling his employees that he controls their bonus and will be getting what is coming to them it, advertising peoples job under “confidential search” and then have candidates calling the person that they are replacing saying their job was being listed, then you have to tell them that you know because the person has seen the ad with the company initials in the advertisement. They interview people in the other build on campus and bring in a consultation, which you have work with before unexpectedly show up and said they will stop by after they are done working on a special project. They create organizations charts with TBD in the chart while the rest of the organization is published with their name. You have people who parents are in grave condition that you need to visit, and he would say to you “don’t you have siblings that can handle that” (more than one occasion) Somebody in Dallas should wake up, uh Dennis.

    I worked at Overhead Door full-time

    Pros

    Never a dull moment. The office stays so busy that you don't have time to get bored.

    Cons

    Pay - VERY low. Workload - Ridiculous. They routinely fire people and dump their work on existing employees without giving that person any kind of compensation increase or leniency on deadlines considering their heavier workload. Technology - WHAT technology? The office I was in still hand wrote their receipts for crying out loud.

    This particular office was also very resistant to change, which was holding them back in both service and business development.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have to modernize - both your pay rates and policies. Grow and develop WITH your customers or they will leave you behind.
