    I have been working at Apex Facility Resources full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    we get lots of hours, at least full time work with the option of overtime. there is a variety of project types, so it is always cool to see where we are going to get to work and what we are doing for the customer.
    as a lead we can help pick our crews and have started to do training programs with our new operations manager Scott.
    we do fun activities like go kart racing and bbqs.

    Cons

    sometimes there are a lot of overtime hours and sometimes jobs get cancelled. i wish leads could do more training of the crew and subs. sometimes install technician parking is hard to find. nothing to bad

    Advice to Management

    go karting and the fun activities are really cool. we should keep doing them

    Great company culture, great training program, great employees who are helpful and knowledgeable, and management who practices what they preach. The company is on track to expand and break into new markets. It's a great thing to be a part of.

    Cons

    You have to wait a year before being eligible for the MATCHING 401K program. (Ok, so not totally a con.)

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing.

    Pros

    Great company with an executive team who is always looking for new ways to make the Apex experience great for clients AND employees. The Apex executive team is committed to continued growth, continued education for the employees and up to date innovations to drive business forward. The owner, Marlaine prides herself in reaching out to others who can teach and implement innovative ideas and structure for the Apex team. Carolyn and the executive team are skilled in finding out additional talents of current employees to assist in career & business growth.

    Cons

    New ideas must be reinforced (as in any company with change) to ensure that they are carried out.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to grow with a strong sense of urgency and effective communication.

    Pros

    I've been with Apex for 5+ years and hope to be here another 5+ years. The thing I love most is Apex does strive to create a fun and flexible culture for it's employees. If I didn't have fun working here - I wouldn't be here.
    Apex is a very diverse company compared to it's competitors. We provide many, many more types of services than any of the dealerships I've worked with in the past which also keeps us learning and evolving to meet our customers needs. We're the right size of a company that allows us to be flexible enough to make this happen.

    Cons

    As already discussed - parking in Kent sucks but big deal. Beats paying for parking downtown!
    Operationally, being in Kent can be a struggle when so many of our customers are in Seattle. There's a lot of variables (traffic, constructions, sporting events) that need to be taken into account when having multiple meetings a week into Seattle, Bellevue, Redmond, etc...

    Advice to Management

    Continue to seek out folks that compliment our culture. We're such a small and intimate company that having the right fit is a must.

    I have been working at Apex Facility Resources full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Overall Apex is an outstanding place to work. The company is small enough to stay nibble in the market place and constantly looking at where we can improve employee satisfaction and the customer experience. These areas have the full attention of management which leads to a growing and positive company culture. Apex is committed to an ongoing positive culture which has been evident in the hiring process. The amount of time and diligence spent in the hiring process to bring in top talent and people that fit into the Apex culture will grow the company exponentially over the next 5 to 10 years.
    I personally have not started at a new job and ever felt more welcome then my first day at Apex. The people are friendly, helpful and open to new ideas. The company values the front line workers and takes time to recognize individual and team accomplishments.
    The benefits are good and PTO is hire date to hire date and given to you up front. Apex also has all the employee forms and training online which make it nice to check on your pay, PTO, benefits, etc. The HR person is also the most approachable HR personal I have ever worked, nice to know HR is supporting you and not the Grim Reaper.
    Marlaine is tough but fair and very approachable as the CEO. She listens to the employees opinions and takes action when the ideas are valuable. Refreshing to have someone listen to your ideas even if they are not put into action. The lines of communication are open.

    Cons

    The parking is stacked which makes it messy throughout the day when you’re playing musical cars. The warehouse receiving of new product is not automated therefore the process of offloading and storing product is manual. The vehicles are seasoned and could use some TLC or a plan to rotate out the old with newer.

    Advice to Management

    Stick to your plan for hiring talented people that fit the culture. Stay connected to the people in your company and keep empowering them to make decisions, if they are wrong coach them up. Overall I believe Apex is trending the right direction and positioned perfectly in the industry.

    Pros

    The staff here is amazing. They work hard but are extremely fun and generous. There is a ton of support from ownership all of the way down to a new warehouse employee. Everyone works together to get the job done and they do it without hesitation and with a smile on their face. The workplace environment is great also as they give us flexible hours and have no issues when we need time off for any reason at all. This company is growing and I have seen new jobs created and promotions within. Really this is an amazing place to work and I am happy to be here.

    Cons

    Maybe the parking situation isn't the best but I really cant think of anything else.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work! Apex was great when I started and continues to grow and excel!

    I have been working at Apex Facility Resources full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Have hired some pretty talented people.

    Cons

    They have hired some talented people but have not listened to them. Eventually the smart people leave as they don't have the heart to stay in an unproductive unhealthy enviroment. And they can go to a company where the owners know how to run a business

    Advice to Management

    Quit wasting your time responding to this website and pull your head out and go take some basic business classes and perhaps realized its not your employees that are creating the problem you are the problem.
