    I worked at AWC (More than a year)

    Pros

    Somewhat competitive pay, family truly does come first, everyone is really nice, put up with no employee drama, training available

    Cons

    6 months after being told company was healthy, layoffs happened, can be slow at times, none other than that, treated me well

    I worked at AWC full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Division I worked in a had a great team atmosphere; focused on individual success as part of group success; benefits and compensation were great

    Cons

    From what I heard, other divisions had a much more "every man for himself" mentality; it is the oil and gas industry, so large lay offs happen when the market is down; manager at my division is racists, he would say something racially insensitive and no one questioned or challenged him.

    Pros

    Great arsenal of available product.

    Cons

    Poor disorganized management leading to poor communications

    Advice to Management

    Change needed in middle management and need to hire experienced industry sales executive for better productivity. Expand out-of-the-box thinking strategy, tactics and how to go to market. More modern market penetration plans.

    Pros

    A great place to work and develop yourself and the company.

    Cons

    You would mostly work with gas and oil companies so if you could get past the feeling that you're helping to kill the planet you'll do fine.

    Advice to Management

    Branch out to cater to renewable resources.

    I worked at AWC full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good reputation as an industrial equipment rep company in the Southern U.S. Private owner (deceased) was well respected and took great pride in his company and employees.

    Cons

    Recent acquisition of Florida rep company Valve & Controls led AWC astray and hurt their reputation (and their pocketbook)! Numerous name brand product lines were lost as a result!

    Advice to Management

    Watch your Florida "managers" very closely. . . . . Don't let the slick holy roller talk fool you!

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

    Pros

    Great place to work, all employees were treated the same from the VP to the shipping clerk, with respect and as a team

    Cons

    Not any cons I could think of. I left because of the commute

    Advice to Management

    I hope you have been able to maintain the teaming and respectful atmosphere

    Pros

    The people are awesome. The company in a nut shell is great. This company is self sufficient.

    Cons

    The pay scale is a little on the low side. Especially for what I do.

    Give there employees the credit they deserve. I pay needs to come up

    I worked at AWC (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The company benefits are outstanding and well managed by the CFO and the Board of Directors.
    An outstanding job by showing the employees a tremendous amount of appreciation through the matching of contribution for the 401K/ESOP.

    Cons

    Improvement is always be an open concept for any and all companies.

    Advice to Management

    Keep and stay with Mr. Bob Alford's motto and his way of running a business.

    Pros

    Great company! Great benefits! 100% Employee Owned! AWC is awesome!

    Cons

    The only complaint I would even half way consider including would be the location. It's not the best part of town but the pros or working here by far outweigh this con!

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!
