    I have been working at Compact Power Equipment full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    You get paid weekly, you get a company vehicle, they cover all travel expenses and reimburse meals up to $36 a day while traveling overnight out of town.

    Cons

    Management is all over the place on rules and regulations. Same with the contract terms on some customers. We were also just purchased by The Home Depot, quite a few technicians aren't very excited about this.

    Advice to Management

    The direct management is fine, even the Divisional management is alright for the most part. The VP of the company needs to quit "ruling by fear". Those tactics are outdated and he needs to change. That "fear" trickles through the veins of the company and rests in the techs. That affects the production and morale.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Compact Power Equipment (Chicago, IL) in July 2016.

    Interview

    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,
