I have been working at Compact Power Equipment full-time (Less than a year)
The company is directed by their 7 core values which are very in line with my own.
I live these everyday, and this company makes it a perfect fit for me. I like to work and serve others. I get paid decently, the benefits are great (compared to my last job). The company has direction and drive which are the best thing for a growing company. I feel the vibe from all I come in contact with. I really enjoy going to work everyday. Being in a different location doing what I like to do is a plus for me. Problem solving and fixing equipment are like puzzles to me. I feed off of being pushed out of my comfort zone which only makes me a better technician.
With a growing company comes growing pains. The kinks are still getting worked out to make this good company a great company to work for. If you are stringent and cannot go with the flow as things change, this may not be the company for you.
I really have no other con to report.
I applied in-person. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Compact Power Equipment (Chicago, IL) in July 2016.
Phone, whole thing was a joke, no questions about anything relating to the position at all. No electrical, mechanical, or electronic. Talked about what the fishing was like in the Great Lakes. There was little to be taken away from this by me. Sounded like someone has to make phone calls and is not interested in hiring anybody,
