    I have been working at Dickinson Fleet Services full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    This is a company that has soared over the last few years and not only is the company mission geared towards it's customers but also to it's employees as well. At least within my department and many others that I have seen there is no micro managing, everyone is held up to a standard and their responsibilities. Pay for all employees I believe is well above average.

    Cons

    If I had to say anything it would be the benefit package as far as medical and vacation could be better but at this point in the economy not too many companies benefits are that amazing anymore.

    Advice to Management

    So far so good

    I have been working at Dickinson Fleet Services full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The pay is slightly above average but that's the only true incentive for staying at Dickinson. The remaining compensation package does not include any 401(k) matching (even the slightest), and does not have a bonus incentive package laid out for ALL management employees.

    Cons

    Incentive-based programs for non-upper management. Bonuses go to the VP's, Sales Dept, and ownership. All other managers have ZERO incentives for bonuses.
    Bonuses to owners and upper management are VERY significant. But Fleet Manager bonuses are no longer in effect. The workload will continue to pile up until you're unable to keep your head above water and begin to see dis-satisfaction from the customer.
    Lastly, there is currenlty ZERO match on 401(K) programs. The only true PRO for this company is the decent pay, but nothing else.

    Advice to Management

    Provide bonus incentives for ALL levels of management. Every other service providers/competitors, offer performance incentives for top performing management personnel.

    Dickinson Fleet Services does have incentive plans, even for our Techicians. When someone comes to work for DFS, they know exactly what the compensation plan will be. If they want a job that has ... More

    Pros

    This is a growing, stable company that will give you all the responsibility and work that you want if you show that you are willing to do the work. In addition, they are in the 50th to 75th percentile in wages throughout the US. This is a company led by a family that believes that the work solution they are offering is better than anything out in the field for fleet maintenance, and invest to prove it.

    Cons

    It takes a while to understand the vision of the company; it's fast paced and if you are not used to that you have to adjust the way you work and think

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you communicate openly and often with your workforce. They are looking for the opportunity to excel.

    Pros

    Established and growing company that provides ample opportunities for personal growth and career advancement!! The atmosphere around the office is extremely friendly and encourages teamwork. We have become very involved in local community outreach programs/fundraisers that inspires everyone to get involved in supporting their local communities.

    Cons

    It would be nice to have an option to purchase extra vacation days as part of our benefit package

    Advice to Management

    It's encouraging to see the number of employees who have been promoted from within the company as opportunists arise. Very inspiring!

    I worked at Dickinson Fleet Services full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Dickinson Fleet Services was a great place to work with others that share the same passion and drive for truck maintenance and safety. There's room to build a career and move up in the company.

    Cons

    I have nothing to hide, my time with Dickinson Fleet Services was a top notch. I really enjoyed every part

    Advice to Management

    Working with all employees and making them feel like family has worked this long, don't change a thing

    Pros

    I truly enjoy working with everyone at Dickinson Fleet Services. It's a very diverse and modern company that's growing by leaps and bounds each year. The advancement opportunities are endless.

    Advice to Management

    A more precise SOP for training in ALL departments.

    Pros

    So far my employment with Dickinson Fleet Services has been a great experience. My manager is caring and understanding, while on the other hand constantly pushes me to do better. I left a very secure job to take a chance with this company and so far I have made the right decision.

    None right now that I can think of.

    Take the time to listen to your employees while not being distracted with other issues.
