    Pros

    Reynolds has a great team environment, and provides excellent training for their associates. New associate training teaches you everything you need to know about the automotive industry, and how Reynolds has evolved. There are additional training courses offered quarterly, that help associates grow professionally and learn more about the industry.

    Reynolds is the industry leader, and widely recognized in the automotive industry. Their products, customer support and training are the best in the industry.

    There are additional activities Reynolds offers associates, including an onsite gym, medical center, convenience store and cafeteria all at headquarters. The "work hard, play hard" mentality is shown through the onsite amenities, as well as the sports leagues and volunteer opportunities offered to all associates.

    Cons

    It does take some time to accrue vacation days.

    Pros

    This was a good place for college students that need flexible schedules and brainless work, leaving most of their energy reserved for school. I enjoyed the cafeteria and workout facility. Near the time I left they were introducing a lot of personal health awareness incentives that seemed to be positively impacting employees.

    Cons

    Because of the high turnover rate it felt like you were easily replaceable, even after working reliably for more than five years I was barley making more than fellow employees that had only been there a few months, and they capped your salary so that no one could receive raises past $10 hourly. The lower management was okay, and even occasionally worked along side the employees, but they often showed favoritism and held each person to unfair standards tip-toeing around confrontational employees and expecting more out of compliant ones. Upper-management was distant and I not until leaving and running across people that knew and talked about me with former bosses did I hear months after leaving that they valued me at all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ultimately I valued this job more for the friendships between co-workers more than any experience that I gained there. Most of the people I met only stayed for a few months while going to school, and the rest were there because some extenuating life circumstance had put them in a rut and they felt that staying was their only option. Management needs to make their employees feel valued. Start by paying them more and stop being so cheap across the board. Put in the effort to get to know them and communicate in other ways than cracking down on stupid policies when things get to lax.

    Company is losing it's heart

    Pros

    The company is stable. The software is good. The people you work with are generally of the highest quality. They are very structured and follow reliable policies, and tried and true solutions for employees and customers.

    Cons

    Some of that structure, and some of the policies no longer fly in today's business culture. R&R feels like it can't make up it's mind whether it wants to evolve as a modern employer, or if it wants to hold on to the traditions baked in to the company from the owner. That indecision shows after a while and you don't feel a sense of connection to the company, or you don't feel aligned with the company's overall vision. That may not seem important at first, but if you are interested in a long term career, it matters a lot.
