    Pros

    401K Match is more than competitive; Stock purchase option plan is great. Work/life balance is generous as well as PTO plans.

    Cons

    Company is too focused on being #1, and has lost sight of what should be regarded as the highest asset......its employees. There is little direction and communication and virtually no training. Employees are expected to adapt, and as a result leadership is poor. This is demonstrated by the number of key employees at dealership level who have left the organization in the last 6 months.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to employee concerns. What works in one region may not necessarily be the best business decision for another. Merging company cultures is difficult at best. Employees need more support; more positive feedback, need to feel as if they belong to a team, not just a company.

    I have been working at Rush Enterprises full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The Rush compensation is fantastic. The 401k match is outstanding and increases once you have been at the company for 5 years!

    Cons

    The biggest drawback is very little feedback from management. I have been at the company long enough that the company has trust in me and I am allowed to handle things on my own with little comments from the management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I only have one thing for the management ; feedback would be preferred; either positive or negative

    Pros

    If you need a job. They'll hire you

    Cons

    On the west coast sales people are missing out. All the dealerships from other parts pay a base salary plus commission.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Become a leader. Don't let the Peterbilt brand be the end all attitude to the customer.

    Pros

    Extremely successful organization; mindful of need to continuously improve. Pay is better than most, benefits are good, and organization seems to truly care about employees.

    Cons

    Company experienced extreme growth by acquisition over a short period of time. As a result, leadership seems a little lost; de-centralized locations experience some disorder; communication overall is lacking as well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need leadership and ll management to understand the value of team-work, and perpetuate it. More communication and informatoin sharing between all areas.

    RUSH is a verb. Everyone works really hard and takes pride in what they do. It's intense, with a conservative culture.

    I worked at Rush Enterprises full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    They are an established leader in the industry and there was a lot of job security even when times were rough for the trucking industry. When they acquire new locations they try and keep all the staff and keep morale high. They give annual raises and have a good benefits plan and really wonderful HR staff. The pay is decent for most and very good for manager/executive level staff.

    Cons

    They are a little behind the times and sometimes still operate like a small family business rather than a multi-billion dollar company. It takes along time to get extremely important things done because staff is always "putting out fires" (working on projects that should have been requested much sooner). They need more oversight and damage control at the store level to maintain a good reputation and need to hire more people at corporate. Many are burnt out and overworked.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Read the negative comments from customers on your social media and respond publicly, immediately to make it right. Make the business decision and set up the infrastructure to sell parts and accessories online. Hire more people at corporate and work on morale at corporate. HR is trying but VPs and managers need to make employees feel heard and valued. Give credit where credit is due.

    Pros

    Decent working hours
    For the most part you are left alone to do your job
    Big company with deep pockets and plans for growth

    Cons

    Lack of training
    Communication is limited in location and from HQ
    Unlimited commission potential is presented to you but, is completely unrealistic

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put together a real training program for new employees to the industry and the company. Local managers are not trainers!! You have the financial resources to get this done right!!
