    I have been working at Traeger Pellet Grills full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    It is an adult led business with adult coworkers. I'm a single mother and the benefits are competitive. I haven't been able to purchase or afford my own since the military. This company got me on my feet and walking. We are paid off of our personal production. A wonderful work hard = reward hard.

    Cons

    To be honest, we get fed and have our own work desks. My supervisors are always available and willing to answer questions. I can't think of anything negative to post......I'd like to get a bathroom upstairs, but that's straight lazy and not logical with the layout of the building.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work. I wouldn't change a thing. Maybe offer employee order form options for Skull Candy. I only say that because I would like to spoil myself with a shiny purple set =)

    Pros

    Our monthly meetings to bring more transparency across the company always include food - as do every other week lunches with those auditioning. Plus, we're a grill company so there's constantly food being passed around, it goes well with the free fountain drinks and pop machine with cans! Amazing health insurance + super friendly people. Jeremy, the CEO is casual enough to take people out on Mondays to lunch to hear our feedback and you don't feel like it's a stuffy office where you can't speak up.

    Cons

    Salary could be better considering how much we do and how hard most of work to accomplish it. I'd love to see meetings set up with our manager + a higher-up so our work doesn't go unnoticed. There is a bit of favoritism, it'd be nice to see that go away, but it's like that in most companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The elephant in the room: are we moving buildings and away from Springville? We heard about and then nothing else was said.

    Pros

    Firstly, the grill itself can sell themselves, so you're there to really push them out the door and make your commissions. Seriously, if you get nothing else from reading this page - just know the grills are more than just a standard grill - go buy one.

    Ok, so 10 days on, 10 days off - it might not be for all but it's perfect for me. The money is *AMAZING* if you know how to sell already and are willing to be on the go. (If last minute jobs pop up you want to be their go-to guy!)

    You get to go all over the US on Traeger's dime! We don't have to do anything with travel except show up at the airport with your bags packed and a positive outlook that you're going to kill the show. Though you don't have extra time to hang out and visit but you can get your flights extended to stay longer if you're somewhere cool.

    Cons

    It's a challenge - but a good one!!
    Facetime and Skype aren't the same as actually being home with your family - but that's just part of the job, and part of what you're signing on for. Same thing with long hours - you're there when Costco is open - 10 days straight so get comfy shoes. The hotels can be sketchy depending on where you're at.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider upping the hotel budget and adding health insurance options.

    I have been working at Traeger Pellet Grills full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The people, the products, the benefits, including the friends and family grills benefit. Relaxed work environment for the most part.

    Cons

    Paid time off accrues more slowly here than anywhere I have even worked.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train the people who do the cleaning and maintenance better. They do a poor job. Do they ever vacuum?

    I have been working at Traeger Pellet Grills full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I feel valued as an employee and as a person. Managers encourage feedback and do not have elitist attitudes, great benefits, growing company culture, monthly company meetings where questions are encouraged and company objectives and goals are shared. Perks: Bi-monthly company lunches to encourage a stronger company culture, complimentary soda fountain, and ping pong table in the break room.

    Cons

    The company is growing quickly and although feedback is encouraged, communication seems to get lost at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase communication between departments.

    Pros

    Great benefits, great co workers, everyone is so friendly and seem to always have a smile on their faces. it is a casual work environment, but that just makes me want to work harder to keep this job.

    Cons

    I don't like working weekends. I can't think of anything else I don't like.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the encouragement that you give all of us. I just want to try harder everyday because you are very good to me.

    Pros

    First off the grill is amazing! I have worked with other companies who's products have been sub par at best. I feel their pay if fair, and the people I work with are awesome!

    Cons

    The only bad thing is people still treat the company like a small company. Sometimes we will run out of water and they will ask someone to go refill it. When you're a company making over $100 million dollars a year you just hire someone to replace your water.

    I have been working at Traeger Pellet Grills full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I 100% believe in the product. Benefits are amazing. Everyone works together as a team - there is a great interdependence among the departments and co-workers here often become close friends. Company culture has come a long way, thanks to our CEO Jeremy.

    Cons

    PTO accrues absurdly slow. Sometimes feels like "A Gentlemen's Club" - hard to feel like women can ever advance in the work place amid such blatant sexism. My personal salary is several thousand dollars below the national average for my position. Some management is very receptive to feedback, others you feel like you're walking on eggshells.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more transparent. Get employee reviews set-up ASAP -- want to know how where we stand, what we are doing well, and where we can improve! Offer more INCENTIVES to (office) employees - bonuses, RAISES, parties outside the office. The sales reps work very hard in the field but both offices make their job POSSIBLE - we deserve some credit, too.
