I worked at Granite Environmental full-time
It's a job. It will not be long term. Employment with GEI Works (Granite Environmental) will teach you to move fast and deliver quickly. You will learn how to do a lot with very little support and education. You will learn how to do things on your own and handle a lot of pressure. A crash course for future work endeavors. If this environment suits you, by all means, apply.
This company has a turnover rate exceeding 350% for the sales department alone. This calculation, in and of itself, should send anyone considering employment with this company in the opposite direction. There is no long-term job security with this company. You will be terminated at their discretion. Million dollar sales reps are discharged at will. Expectations are high for sales and company failings are blamed on sales department. No support, no training, no additional sales staff above four personnel on average to handle the large work load required. Any constructive criticism to improve sales department is viewed as a negative attitude. Therefore, sales staff is fearful of making suggestions management would not like as you risk losing your job. You will be given an Away Connect so you can work if you are ever away from the office. This includes working during sick days (during which it is required you use your Paid Time Off). The work load assigned will require off site access so you can work uncompensated from home (voluntary of course!). Ninety percent of leads are internet driven to sales and you will be expected to handle 300-400 accounts. Bonus and commission compensations are minimal, convoluted, and increased as soon as the assigned goals are met. Unfortunate, a trained, seasoned staff of six would easily increase the profit for this company.
Frankly, this review was not submitted for the benefit of this company but for the quality people out there really looking for a stable, positive work environment where they can contribute their time and talent in benefit of themselves and a deserving company. Please consider using your talents and capabilities at another company as they will be wasted here.
Advice to Management
Owners and the three profit sharing managers are satisfied with the way in which this company is run and are not interested in anything staff has to say.
