    I have been working at Crown Equipment full-time (More than a year)


    Crown cares about it's people. There is a big emphasis on training and self improvement. Lots of opportunities to learn. The pay is fine for a starting position. Never had personal issues with coworkers.


    Benefits could be better. The area is standard small farmtown and the company owns most of the buildings and businesses in town. If you don't like that atmosphere, this isn't the place for you.
