    I have been working at American Fence Company full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    American Fence Company of Lincoln truly cares about each of it's employees on a personal level. It is very clear that safety is of top concern as it should be and everyone watches out for everyone else to make sure work goes smooth and without injuries or accidents. There is always room and encouragement for advancement and I have personally seen many individuals in my 6 years here go from the a field laborer, the base level position, to a division superintendent and estimator/project manager. From the day a new employee starts, they are encouraged to go through development and training with the goal that they advance and advance quickly.

    Cons

    Being in a construction position, the workload is driven by the market and seasons. As was expected, there can be long hours in the spring/summer/fall when weather and conditions are at their most ideal.

    Advice to Management

    A somewhat warmer (temperature) office would mean better productivity and focus from desk employees.

    I have been working at American Fence Company full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I've worked at American Fence in Sioux Falls for over seven years. We have the best boss who really knows the fencing business. He cares about his employees and acknowledges when you do a good job. He rewards employees who are dependable, responsible, hard-working and have a good attitude. American Fence sells and installs quality products and takes care of their customers. Every customer is appreciated and we enjoy working with them.

    Cons

    In winter when the ground freezes, work slows down some. That is the time to catch up on other projects that were set aside for putting our customers first.

    Pros

    I have worked at The American Fence Company for almost 7 years. I have met some great people, both customers and employees. I appreciate the relationships I have built over the years with not only my branch, but other employees at other branches across the Midwest. We have a great group of people that work together day in and day out to get the job done. We strive to make the customer experience positive from sign up to the finished product. We couldn't do that without the team environment!

    Cons

    I need to learn to step back and take a day off here and there.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the positive vibes you send! They promote a successful and safe environment!

    Pros

    Great atmosphere to work in daily!! Have not quite been employed here for a year yet, but it has already been leaps and bounds better than my previous employer/position! Clean and professional, yet still knows how to have fun at work!

    Cons

    Pace is a little slower than previous job, which is due to the season change. This will all be over soon enough, as the seasons change!

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing exactly what you are!
