    I worked at Conquip full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I got to work a flexible shift and work from home. Great benefits and good atmosphere to work in.

    Cons

    The commute was too long but other than that, there were no cons

    I worked at Conquip full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There are a handful of good people that currently work for the company.

    Cons

    I worked at CQ for 2 years. During my time there I saw over 200 years of experience leave the building, 3 major layoffs, a multiple shifts in upper management and more than half the jobs shipped over to China. If CQ is hiring, it is most definitely for a short-term and an immediate need. Once the project is over, you can bet on being laid off. In good conscious, I cannot recommend this employer to anyone. I sincerely...

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Conquip full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    USED TO be a cool place to learn about automation and fabrication and made a relativity good product.

    Cons

    The company had some serious management issues, but got drastically worse after the buyout. Lied to employees constantly. Low pay and required 60+ hour weeks, just made it livable, at least until work slowed to a crawl. Mistakes were consistently repeated, and no efforts for improvements were ever made.

    Advice to Management

    Learn from yours and other people's mistakes. Too late now unfortunately.

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

    Pros

    ConQuip has been through some major changes but there's core values and morals that ConQuip adheres to. Good benefits, good pay, collaborative efforts and all aiming towards the same goal.... success. I have worked for ConQuip for quite a few years and am happy with the transformation. I am seeing the vision progress and in turn seeing the rewards along with it.

    Cons

    Every company had cons but I have to say that the new management at ConQuip is working on turning those negatives into positives. And it's working.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

    I worked at Conquip full-time

    Pros

    Only good if you want to support Communism. There were a lot of good people working at Conquip but most have been laid off or left.

    Cons

    They are sending American jobs to China. They are making junk now instead of a good product. Almost all of their jobs are shipped late to unhappy customers.

    Advice to Management

    They won't listen to any advice.

    Pros

    Great Co Workers. Easy commute from Roseville

    Cons

    Management has no idea what they are doing. they want people and other companies to do them 'favors'. The CEO was a Sales Manager in his last job and is not cut out to be a CEO nor does he understand or care about what it takes to move the Company forward

    Advice to Management

    Good luck moving operations back to China

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

    Pros

    There are absolutely none except of the engineering dept, those guys are good humans.

    Cons

    If you work here (which I don't know why you would, just read the other reviews, they are accurate) I highly suggest documenting EVERYTHING, getting EVERYTHING in writing not verbal, KNOWING your Labor Laws & what your rights are and, watch your back, always. As others said, you will be promised certain things and never delivered. The company culture is HORRENDOUS even though they now say they are trying to change it....

    I worked at Conquip full-time

    Pros

    No drug testing, flexible hours

    Cons

    Chinese owners who don't understand US business culture, all jobs moving to Chinese plant, product that comes out of Chinese plant is garbage and has to be redone, employees are not supported by management, copays are really high, no 401k matching, no training, no standard for reviews, raises are rare, job descriptions are weak if existent at all, employees have no idea where company is headed because information is kept...

    I worked at Conquip full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Not Any more after it was sold to a Chinese company

    Cons

    Used to be a nice place but now everything is profit driven, cheap labors and parts. I would not buy anything from this company because you are just spending more money on inferior parts. Good people are leaving so if there's any issues, there'd be no one left to fix.

    Advice to Management

    This is not going to work!
