    I have been working at Crown Equipment full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Vehicle is provided to you.

    Cons

    lack of leadership, lack of salary compensation, too micromanaged and the worst would be no appreciation of achievments.

    Advice to Management

    Be more appreciated of your technicians if the ecconomy was not so bad you would have lost a 3rd of your technicians. salaries are not livable your technicians struggle to keep their lights on at home amongst other things. Be more personal all you care about is your "numbers".

    I have been working at Crown Equipment full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Family owned company so no union or union workers to deal with. Standard shifts. 40 hrs per week, overtime is 99% voluntary. Safety is always Number 1! Very clean factory. Vacation is based on years of service, after 1 year you get a week. They offer tuition reimbursement. They provide prescription safety glasses, and boot allowance.

    Cons

    Pay is relatively low compared to other factories doing similar work. Communication throughout departments is horrible. Christmas bonuses are taxed! Average length of service is quite long, so getting vacation time off may be difficult since a lot of employees have many weeks of vacation and the vacation book fills up quick. And management never seems to follow the rules about limiting time off to one person per line. Crown is all about who you know. Certain people will always be held higher than you no matter what.

    Advice to Management

    Hold people accountable for their mistakes. Welders are not gods, you have no problem going after assembly workers for their mistakes, have a standard and hold everyone to it. Let people advance based on their performance, not how many drinks they buy you or how often. Communication, learn it and use it. You want to know how to fix something, ask someone who does the job, not your process techs, they don't know. Don't tell me to follow standard work when you'll just throw it to the wind when a problem arises. If I have to do other peoples jobs as well as my own, then I want some of their pay. I don't get paid enough to assemble, inspect, and stock handle.
