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

    Pros

    Work hours are flexible, care about the employees and their growth in career, good transparency from mid to high management in terms of financial performance of the company, very honest to their employees

    Cons

    Always lot of restructure in high management position, lack of rules and procedures in work process, too many reports goes around in email but without having a clear guidance of what’s the purpose of the reports for.

    Advice to Management

    Clear guidelines needs to be set to achieve the monthly goal. Suggest More training programs to provide to employees, listen to their opinions in their area instead of just looking at the budget numbers. Suggest giving Incentive to employees in the branch to increase their moral value. Provide coffee in the office is needed!! (Every one just bring their own coffee is pretty depressing!)

    Pros

    All of the people who work here are absolutely great. The issue is that there is not a standard set of procedures for operation from Department to department so nothing is defined therefore it seems unorganized in certain aspects

    Cons

    No operational SOP's makes the billing and scheduling process confusion with sales

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

    Pros

    It's a great company. I have always been treated by the utmost respect. I have seen some reviews on this website about not being a good place to work if you are a woman. I totally disagree with that. It is a family company and they always understand when anyone, both men and women have to take time off to care for their own family. There are definitely more men here than women. But I would say that is because it is a male dominated industry. Most of the employees are mechanics and you just don't see women in that industry.

    Cons

    I wish sometimes we would hear more about what was going on in the company, not just my branch.

    Pros

    There are a lot of good people there and at times is fun place

    Cons

    Upper management is a joke - they have taken us from 60% of the industry shares to 4% in less than 5 years - a lot of buddy buddy favorite and brown noses

    Advice to Management

    Stop getting rid of good people and can the dead weight
