    Former Contractor - Technical Support in Johnson City, TN

    I worked at A. O. Smith as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I worked in the technical support dept an enjoyed my work environment for the most part. The supervisors were very helpful and professional. My co-workers were the same as well. Great hours, as I worked 11a-7p M-F an occasional Sat every month.

    Cons

    Like any call center environment, it comes down to the numbers. I wasn't the best, but I was very professional in my phone manner and demeanor with customers and co-workers. With that being said, I was let go shortly before being hired on permanently.

    The company cares about family.

    Pay does not match the industry standard, in other words it is below standard

    Pros

    great work, great pay and benefits and good work life balance

    Cons

    not enough women in senior management. Many of the men, particularly in finance have an overly inflated view of their own self worth. Unfounded arrogance.

    I worked at A. O. Smith as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of volunteer opportunities and ways to improve your health such as fitness competitions and encouraging step counts. Successful company, always something going on.

    Cons

    It's a water company. If you don't have a passion for water, it can get boring. Also, the culture is very "every man for himself," but maybe that's because I was an intern and nobody cared about me.

    Pros

    The people here are good people with solid values and a professional attitude. They seem to genuinely care about their employees and their customers. They have an employee cafeteria, a medical clinic and a gym with a professional trainer, on site. They offer flexible schedules and are considerate of family needs and responsibilities of their employees. You'll find a lot of long time employees still working here.

    Cons

    Pay scale is extremely low. Too much work for not enough pay.

    Advice to Management

    Better communication channels, clear job descriptions and improved policy and procedures within departments.

    I worked at A. O. Smith full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The pay is tops in the Johnson City TN area.

    Cons

    You will most likely work 2nd shift doing repetitive work in a very warm building. You will earn your money. If you cant work hard or handle heat it will be difficult.
