    I have been working at Compact Power Equipment full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The company is directed by their 7 core values which are very in line with my own. Teamwork-Hustle-Results-Integrity-Professionalism-Service-Fun. I live these everyday, and this company makes it a perfect fit for me. I like to work and serve others. I get paid decently, the benefits are great (compared to my last job). The company has direction and drive which are the best thing for a growing company. I feel...

    Cons

    With a growing company comes growing pains. The kinks are still getting worked out to make this good company a great company to work for. If you are stringent and cannot go with the flow as things change, this may not be the company for you. I really have no other con to report.

    I worked at Compact Power Equipment full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Very hands on with repairs and maintenance, you won’t be sitting down listening to instructions all the time. Opportunity to learn, teach and grow in the field. No one knows everything and everyone is willing to share. Advancement is highly attainable. Great resume builder for growing in company or outside.

    Cons

    Customers will test your patience. Schedule can be tough depending on your region, traveling to a job late in day 20 miles away isn’t ideal if it happens frequently. Your management can be what drives you away.

    Advice to Management

    Constant communication with field employees will help make conflict resolution easier.

    I have been working at Compact Power Equipment full-time

    Pros

    I have been with the company for years and as with any employer there are pros and cons but the pros outweigh the cons tremendously.

    Cons

    The only con for me is the pay scale but who doesn't want more money.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Compact Power Equipment full-time for more than 9 years

    Pros

    People once cared about one another and the moral was great before it was bought out.

    Cons

    Micro management, click mentality which was pushed by supervisors, brown nosers were given raises and promoted to higher positions.

    Advice to Management

    Most of the higher ups are family connected which is bad for one! Start treating people with respect or you will never keep the good ones. The brown nosers will stay because they love the drama.

    Pros

    No micromanaging. Freedom to make decisions. Growing company. Great job to learn some valuable skills and go somewhere else.

    Cons

    Customers destroying equipment and you always have to answer the phone when they call. And they will call when your spending time with your family and friends, at a ballgame, or just relaxing at home.

    Advice to Management

    Give techs at least 2 days a week when they don't have to answer the phone

      Pros

      Most of the associates I work around are good people, very friendly and good conversation

      Cons

      This company has taken advantage of all of my misfortunes. From being severly over worked when it became known i was buying a house (have to have a job for one full year) to being severely underpaid for doing things that were never discussed. As soon as things get stable in my life, I'm off to another job and I'm never looking back!

      Advice to Management

      The parts department is a total wreck, your payroll system is terrible and in my experience, the managers abuse the power they have over certain employees.
