    I have been working at Blue Beacon full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great starting hourly wage, team atmosphere, exercise, solid hours if you're committed, weekly paycheck, opportunities to bonus daily, location management cares about their team

    Cons

    Getting wet, loud environment, rainy weather may end up cutting your weekly hours. If you don't apply yourself you won't get far. Leadership is content with leaving you in the starting position of you don't show integrity and ambition.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize locations that are improving, not just the favorites.

    I worked at Blue Beacon full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There are awesome benefits. They are a close team. Very laid back job. There is room for raises. Fast paced company most of the time.

    Cons

    Very slow when it rains. Favoritism when it comes to promotion/hiring. Nothing is confidential.

    Advice to Management

    Stop showing favoritism and go on how a person work ethics are.

    I have been working at Blue Beacon full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They buy the whole shift lunch if you work Sunday.

    Not much else is a pro for this job, it's trash.

    Cons

    One actual day off, the other day you have to call in and get permission to take the day off.

    One 30 minute break.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be hyper aggressive about everything, it's actually really dumb.

    I worked at Blue Beacon full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good hours in the winter. Lots of team work. Learned experience. Not much to say it's a job for kids

    Cons

    Low pay, little to no hours in the summer. Management makes promises they can't keep. They allow lazy people to work there and move up

    Advice to Management

    Promote the workers actually working

    I have been working at Blue Beacon full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You can get bonus on how many diesels everyone washes within a shift. It ranges up from 10%-50% unless you're running the bay you can make up to 60%.

    Cons

    Some days it's busy and properly staffed other days you're understaffed. The problem about being properly staffed is that you can get these diesels out faster with more people. Unfortunately with less people you do more work and get paid the same as people who do a little less work with more staffing.

    Advice to Management

    N/A

    Fun environment if you like teamwork but be ready to work hard. The efficiency setup they have is pretty hard to surpass even with a good team

    The company seems they cant afford to allow an extra 2 minutes to do any extra work that may need done on some washes. And dealing with some ofthe truck drivers

    Bring efficiency from 107 to 104

    Pros

    Fast paced and good benefits And good opportunity for advancement. The scedule is decent with no problems getting time off if needed.

    Cons

    they dont follow there own policies. i got into an argument with another employee and he pushed me and they fired me but not him and policy says if you put your hands on another emplyee it is immediate termination. So why did i get fired and he didnt? Who knows. I say poor management.

    Advice to Management

    follow policies and dont play favorites and do what your supposed to when situations occur not just kick back and let it happen.
