    Good place with nowhere to go!

    Electrical Engineer (Current Employee)
    Grand Prairie, TX

    ProsSalary is good, people are not bad, and the managers are not too strict.

    ConsThere are no moving up in the company. Once you are there, you are basically stuck where you are. They dont hire manager positions from in house people. You have very little input on what goes on in the company. What the higher ups say goes.

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

    Very Disappointing Experience.

    Programmer/Analyst (Former Employee)
    Grand Prairie, TX

    ProsSadly, no Pros for working here. We need manufacturing in America but this company runs like the Chinese government. They own you, and they let you know it!

    ConsI was a computer programmer and every day was miserable. To make matters worse, a technically ignorant manager that survived meetings by talking in circular logic and vagueness. You had to sort things out yourself, and if successful, your manager got a pat on the back. Good For You!! Whoo Hooo! All this for sub market pay scale.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI made the mistake of forcing my manager to make a concise point during a meeting of Exactly "What" he wanted done on a project. He couldn't and I was tossed from the meeting. A few days later i was fired for making an unnecessary (not inappropriate but unnecessary) copy at a copier. Thank You! On to better things.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Good company to drive OTR for.

    OTR Driver (Former Employee)
    Grand Prairie, TX

    ProsPay is off the hub and every driver receives the same relatively high cpm rate. Stable family-owned company in a stable industry (plastics). Plenty of miles for those who want them. Minimal restrictions on home time: as long as you average 2000 miles/week you can take as much as you want. Liberal out-of-route policy: for any given load, drivers are allowed to drive out-of-route up to 10% of the number of in-route miles on the load.

    ConsCompany still uses paper logs and dispatches its loads over the phone. Can sometimes be difficult to get home on the date requested.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMake better use of your Qualcomm units and improve at getting drivers home on time.

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

    Good company, bad management

    Administrative Assistant (Former Employee)
    Grand Prairie, TX

    ProsOn-site discounted gas after 6 months on job, gym on site, decent pay in office positions.

    Consparking is horrible, benefits are expensive and not worth it, management is lacking. Managers tend to leave their staff to do everything and then take all the credit for it without giving you even a nod or raise. Don't expect to get a real lunch either because you will be working non-stop to get all their projects completed on a moments notice.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlan out a project before giving it to employees to work. It will save time and frustration from employees spending hours working on something you gave them only to have you change it and want it done with your corrections in minutes. Know what your employees do because life happens and if they have to leave you have to be able to pick up the slack.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
