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

    Pros

    $15.00 an hour starting pay over time for those that like it, some nice people to work with,

    Cons

    Very stressful job. No paid time off until you get hired on with bobcat, half an hour lunch breaks, not always guaranteed 40 hours depending on what area you work in, some areas get shut down if they run out of parts. Equipment that breaks, not enough equipment for everyone to use especially when working overtime. work 10 hour shifts pulse Saturday's, only one day off a week, forced to work with people who are bad for the company, management treats the job like it is more important than the employees, management will tell employees that they suck. If the management gets in trouble with their boss they punish employees with 10 hour shifts, over time is mandatory and is forced on employees a lot, if you have a problem with an employee management acts like it is a personal problem between you and that employee and they won't do anything about it. Discriminating, unfair, get teased by other employees, no communication

    Advice to Management

    Work on your people skills and take more concern with the employees complaints don't punish the people who are trying to do their jobs, punish the ones who won't let those employees do their jobs, take more pride in your employees

    I have been working at Bobcat full-time

    Pros

    A great experience for either a budding career or a full fledged position. I really enjoy it at Bobcat and I think others would to.

    Cons

    Company often releases outdated tech to dealers. This leads to poor software integration and bad service problems internally.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in technology. It is the wave of the future. Make more things automatic and look for minor ways to make the customers life easier. Don't get marketing myopia.
