    I worked at Eastern Lift Truck Company full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Benefits is about it here

    Cons

    Poor management, total disregard for safety and osha. Not really welcoming unless you are a friend of a family that works there or you are family. You will not be given an equal chance.

    Advice to Management

    Replace management in branches to correct morale.

    I worked at Eastern Lift Truck Company full-time

    Pros

    Friendly, casual, team oriented workplace. You really WANT to work because you feel like YOU'RE actually making a difference (not just a number). Employer LOYALTY

    Cons

    Pro and a con; it is a family business. I didn't see any kind of horrible nepotism. Everyone in their positions were more than qualified. However, as a new employee, you may feel a little out of the loop. If that's the worst I can say, then I would highly recommend this company (at least in the administrative aspect).

    Advice to Management

    NEW TECHNOLOGY!! I am not the most computer savvy person and I certainly don't want to take away jobs. However, a little tech would make things so much more efficient and LOADS less paper.

    I have been working at Eastern Lift Truck Company full-time

    Pros

    Company Car Gas Card Family Owned Company Hands off Management approach

    Cons

    Little/No Training or Development Way behind technology No expense account Little support from other departments Benefits outrageously expensive

    Advice to Management

    Focus on the people rather than the numbers all the time. Invest in the people (training, development, mentoring).

    I worked at Eastern Lift Truck Company full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    HR department is excellent and well organizied. I think they work under some very tough circumstances.

    Cons

    Where to begin? Training is non-existant. Management has no focus or organizational skills. It seems like "the good old boy network" at the York, Pa branch is alive and well.

    Advice to Management

    Advice to upper managent would be to conduct a thorough review of both the hiring an training processes. The company has tremendous potential.

    I have been working at Eastern Lift Truck Company full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Company van, decent pay and benefits

    Cons

    Management is terrible. If you are part of "the club" you can have a job here for life. Customer service has gotten terrible over the past two years. Can't trust anyone that works there.

    Advice to Management

    Stop humping your coworkers. Owners should find managers that do not keep the truth from them.

    I have been working at Eastern Lift Truck Company full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    There are several outside/inside sales positions available in Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and expanding territories. If you have technical experience, sales experience, know AutoCAD or another design program it's definitely a plus. They keep you busy if you don't have work. If you're going to be driving around a sales territory they provide you a company car and gas card. ...

    Cons

    The benefits aren't the best, but they do offer matching 401K, Long-term and Short-term disability, dental, medical, and corrective lenses. I had 3 cavities and with their insurance I paid $500 😞. I haven't gone to the doctor yet, but I know they offer 1 free physical per year. They don't offer any training. I've been with the company for almost 4 years and even though I meet my goals and do great work I've never...

    Advice to Management

    Most companies offer raises or promotions yearly for their employees. It shows that you're appreciated and given the opportunity to grow with the company. When you make the same salary for almost 4 years with no raise or promotion you tend to look for better opportunities elsewhere. I will most likely stay with this company for another year so that I can quit with full 401K matching after 5 years then work for a competitor...
