    Pros

    The company has a good PTO plan as well as profit sharing and 401K. Free equipment rental is also available to employees.

    Cons

    Hourly wages and salaries have not kept pace with inflation and it makes it hard to keep current employees happy and entice new employees to hire on.

    Advice to Management

    Don't undervalue your employees at the store level.

    Pros

    Met some nice people there

    Cons

    Worse company I have ever worked for. Beat you down until you felt like a failure. Only told you what you did wrong. I never felt believed, trusted or wanted the 3 years I was there. Best day of my life was when I got laid off. A blessing really.

    Advice to Management

    Find managers that care and treat people like they have feelings. Not like they are just a number. You can start by firing all the managers in the accounting department. The most heartless people I have ever met.

    Pros

    Sunbelt is a great company that allows upward growth for its employees. You do have to be willing to relocate at times to advance but the opportunities are there.

    Cons

    I have nothing negative to say. No company is perfect but as stated above the opportunity is there for the taking. Those that complain have simply not taken advantage of them.

    Advice to Management

    Please be very careful not to lose the core values of what got us here as we expand.
