    I have been working at Alta Equipment full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I think first and foremost it is the people I work with day in and day out. Great group of people who embody fostering customers for life. The senior management team is passionate and completely dedicated to empowering their teams and they truly care. They are not there for a paycheck, they are there to win! Also, there are opportunities for advancement and the organization is actively involved with the community. The culture is amazing and the company is constantly growing the right way. The benefits are top notch and they take a very small amount out of our paychecks. Alta does a terrific job to take care of their employees and I plan on staying for as long as they will have me.

    Cons

    I don't really have anything negative to say, but if you are reviewing Alta then I'd tell you to do what you can to be a part of the team. So many employees comment how it was such a great career move to come to Alta, including myself.

    Advice to Management

    An increased effort to "build the bench". We have a lot of talented employees, but most of them don't seem interested in advancing into supervisory/managerial positions.

    I have been working at Alta Equipment full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I love the people I work with! Everyone is friendly and easy to work with.

    Great benefits

    Alta has always been flexible and understanding when it comes to working around someone's schedule.

    Cons

    Our new computer system has been difficult to adjust to but that is expected as it is something new.

    The company has grown really fast and it is hard to keep track of the number of branches and employees.

    Advice to Management

    Make time to visit the branches more often and listen to what the employees have to say about improvements/suggestions.

    I have been working at Alta Equipment full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Work / family balance
    Family oriented atmosphere
    Competitive wages
    Upper management is very approachable, open door policy always willing to listen and help.
    Extensive benefit package
    One company, One team!

    Cons

    Typical growing pains for a company growing so rapidly. Shortage of staffing, or proper staffing although consistently working to find the right fit for open positions. Communication and training throughout, which is an effect of not being properly staffed yet. Every day we are getting closer achieving tighter more effective training procedures.

    Advice to Management

    Sometimes trying to fill a position in a hurry causes more issues than necessary. If the candidate is not a fit and it is very clear from the start it causes more of a challenge for the team. If the peg is square and all of the holes in the company are round.....at some point we need to move on as that square peg cannot turn the round holes into a square hole .

    Pros

    Alta Equipment Company has a great family and team atmosphere . In my over 20 years with the company, they have always been accommodating to my personal scheduling needs and those of others as well. I feel that Alta truly cares about their employees!

    Cons

    I feel that there could be better communication between departments and the different level of employees. It seems at times that you get two very different versions of events depending on who you are talking to.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management needs to spend more time in the individual branches.

    I worked at Alta Equipment full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There really isn’t even

    Cons

    If you like to go to work everyday that is full of drama, being lied to, stabbed in the back, pretty much it’s like walking into an elementary school that is run by a bunch of childish men, then this is your place

    Advice to Management

    Due everyone a favor, shut your doors or at least Get rid of the management and start over m, you might actually have a chance to succeed m.
