    I have been working at Battery Systems full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Working at battery systems will afford never having to worry about whether you'll get paid...the work environment seems uniform throughout the branches (and it's a more positive one at that.) Management is diligent in working with its employees and their needs and making sure your aware of your health. I commend the way the company handles employee correction/discipline. Overall it has been a good experience!

    Cons

    Poor maintanace of vehicles and equipment...it is scary! Bad communication between team members it was hard to go to a customer thinking nothing had change just to find management had change terms, customer had been promised so and so wheres my warranty and ect. Poor growth incentives I notice when I expressed interest in adding to my,"skill set" to fill a need I saw the company had they showed no interest didn't even offer to cut hours to allow me to go obtain said skills. Disappearing incentives Absent marketing 80% of people do not know what a centennial is 90% of people do notknow what battery systems is. The juggle of having multiple sister companies is not a battery systems strong point it lacks consistancy and comunication Understaffed... be ready to take part in a little of everything from cleaning to dept collecting though this should be a pro as it makes every day different and intresting Management says one thing one day and then magically forgets by the next.

    Pros

    I'm new to the company, but have been in the battery business for many years. They have shown me in just a short time that employees are an asset and are willing to invest in them.

    Cons

    Benefits could be better.

    I have been working at Battery Systems full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Weekends off . that's about it

    Cons

    Horrible commission structure. 4% of whatever you sell. meager benefits package. If you need anything beyond basic healthcare you will pay through the nose. They like to pile tons of work that is well beyond your job description and not compensate you for it . They have managers that are in charge of actually serving as a collection agency and lawyer for all of the various bad accounts . too cheap to hire a dedicated in house team to do this and instead bombard management with these ridiculous task . They are currently involved in a class action lawsuit for not paying their workers for lunch breaks etc. Pay is 16$ per hour to handle hazardous material EMBARRASSING

    Hello! We want to first thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We believe that criticism, good or bad, is the only way to grow! You are correct--we do expect a high degree of effort and performance from our employees. We do also believe in matching those efforts with a high level of compensation. What sets us apart is our belief in total compensation. We believe that employees should not just be compensated monetarily, but with specific benefits that promote performance, leadership, and develop the person as a whole. We thank you again for your remarks and aim to grow as a company from them. Best Regards, Todd Scott Director of HR

    I really appreciate the amazing cooperation within the sales team to work together to answer any customer technical question within minutes of a request for assistance. There is a real camaraderie here. Also, the company really seems to care about me/us personally.
