    I worked at Amarr Garage Doors full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great people to work WITH, decent pay, good work atmosphere. Lots of available OT if you want it. Decent benefits, but outstanding accumulative vacation time

    Cons

    Point system for attendance basically sets you up to fail. The no tolerance policy does not leave room for life situations such as illness or car issues. This is not a family oriented company so if "things" happen in your world it may not be the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Dont seem to care about your employees... its ALL about the numbers. Accumulating 8pts "bfor you are terminated" isnt hard to do and taking a whole year "from the date you lost a pt" to gain it back is ridiculous!! This is the reason for the high turnover. Implementing an incentive program to regain attendance pts mite be something to look into.

    I worked at Amarr Garage Doors full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Vacation program is great. Work does not follow you home. Team atmosphere.

    Cons

    Very labor intensive. Antiquated technology. Incentive program is unattainable year over year. Factory has a lot of issues with damage and delivering proper material. This is a weird industry with a lot of small business owners, so be prepared.

    Advice to Management

    Try a new approach. If it hasn't worked yet maybe it's time to game plan a different strategy.

    Pros

    If you put in the work and want to suceed with the company then you will. They give you every opportunity to move up with the company to be successful.

    Cons

    Depending in what part you work in the company can become highly stressful. The DC work tends to be hard but hard work pays off.

    Advice to Management

    Stick to your guns, don't back down to customers and/or employees that are tryong to take advantage of you. You were put in this postion for a reason, take charge and stand your ground.

    Pros

    Flexible, nice co workers, supportive, small work place, like our customers, so so benefits, paid time off

    Cons

    Pay is below standards and difficult to live off of, management overlooks ideas of employees, higher education not rewarded, high employee turnover, high level of complaints from customers and employees, short handed all the time. The company does nothing for the community.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees, competitive and equal compensations, improve work environment, become more environmentally friendly, don't offer bonuses as an incentive if your never going to pay them.
