    I have been working at RDO Equipment full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Pay and PTO time is great. Nice facility and the product lines are great.

    Cons

    In the past 8 years we have gone through 7 General Managers and Fargo management wonders why market share is down along with service volume. This is all impacted by the turn over. In 2014 we replaced the following good employees. Two service managers-Five salesman-One parts manager.
    The customers and the community have lost all faith in management out of Fargo. This has forced our customers to move towards Cat&Case&Ford New Holland.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It is very disappointing to hear from our owner. If I had my way I would just shut this Tucson location down. It’s not the ones you let go. It’s the General Manager you have now is why we have had such a large turn over this year

    The company is family owned and truly give back to the employees. There is a sense that the owners care.

    Pros

    A company that is willing to develop their employees. They really take care to train. Lots of growth. RDO is a private company with strong core values from top management all the way down to the hourly positions.

    Pros

    Good pay for both hourly and Salaried Employees. A lot of opportunity for advancing your education in the field you have chosen. Decent Benefits and retirement.

    Cons

    No time given to further your education. Short career span and a very high turnover rate for supervisors and middle management. Lack of resources needed to complete the job correctly. Too much red tape.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Slow down a litlle bit . Try not to focus on hitting the budget so much as building quality long term relationships with both employees and customers.
