Featured Review

Former Employee - Survey Consultant

I worked at GeoShack full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

I worked has a survey consultant in the Dallas area for five years and enjoyed every minute. They have a great team and support staff. Some of the benefits besides the best commission percentage in... the business is the medical, dental, vision, life insurance and 401k plans is the owner is involved in many charities and whatever you donate Geoshack will match and if you have your own charity they match that as well. That just shows how much they care for their employees. Also they take the top sales people for the year (You and spouse) to a exquisite vacation destination. This is just a few of the benefits of working for the Largest Topcon dealer in the nation.

Cons

This is a commission based company. If you don't want to work then you will not do well at this company. You must be self motivated and hard working.

Former Employee - Engineer

I worked at Fairbanks Scales full-time for more than a year

Pros

Understand of real world events. Worked with me when I had crisis in my life to allow me to attend to it and still maintain a stable a realisic work/life balance. Patient and understanding leadership.

Cons

Dated manufacturing facility, desperately needing a remodel or a new factory for increased production.

Advice to Management

Probably less expensive to develop a new plant in the same/similar area to not interrupt work but allow for a complete revamp of the facilities.
