    Profit sharing every quarter. Hours are from 5 am to 3 pm.

    I worked at AAON full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I enjoyed my work there, and I was given broad authority to develop my applications.

    Cons

    Employee appreciation was high when I came onboard. There was profit share, sales incentives, and occasional lunches to boost moral. In the 6 years I was there, I saw these get slowly reduced until they were eventually all eliminated. No raises. If someone asked for a raise, they were told they could be replaced by someone new for the same pay.

    There is high employee turnover because of a Point System for hourly workers. After a certain number of points, an employee is terminated - whether they are a good worker or a bad one. If you have a wreck coming into work and you are over 30 minutes late, you are automatically maxed out on your points for the year.

    Company owned insurance is bad. One of the managers had a motorcycle wreck that broke his back. AAON refused to pay his medical bills, stating that motorcycle riding fell under "risky behavior." Another woman in accounting was diagnosed with cancer and went to the hospital for treatment. The company was fast to put her on Long Term Leave (non-paid time off). Everyone's insurance payments come out of their paychecks, so when she did not pay her premiums, AAON dropped her quick. She died in the hospital.

    AAON's attitude towards employees is not just towards hourly employees, but extends to salaried positions, too. The Production Manager busted his tail up there, but he was let go when a new product line did not start production when the new Company President wanted. They didn't care that the parts were on backorder. The Quality Control Manager was let go because the President said, "Every employee is responsible for quality." Lol - yeah, who is going to hold your low income employees (illegal Mexicans and pot smokers from the hood) to your quality standards?

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your employees.

    Despite the health care benefits the compensation benefits are fairly good. There is a good mix of equity, cash, and profit sharing at all levels.

    Cons

    The company is growing and changing for the better. However there are some departments that are lagging behind in the change and make day to day operations challenging

    Advice to Management

    Change is inevitable and there is no reason to fight it. It is your responsibility to constantly ask "How can we be better"

    I worked at AAON full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    My manager was the best part of the job for sure, upper management had no idea who I was even though I was in on meetings with them every other week.

    Cons

    It's located in Northwest Tulsa between an oil refinery, trash plant and a rail yard. After dealing with that mess, you have to parade through the homeless and poor everywhere you go - I would see homeless people digging through the vehicles in the parking lot every week. Flat tire every week from all the screws in the parking lot.
