    Pros

    Good work hours, pay and benefits. Overall a nice place to work.

    Cons

    Zero training, very sink or swim attitude towards new hires.

    Advice to Management

    Break up departments into smaller groups with team managers. The flat structure and lack of training/mentoring isn't working.

    I worked at Flex-N-Gate full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Most supervisors are laid back and aren’t breathing down your neck. The job Paid decent and came with good benefits.

    Cons

    You never knew your work schedule, and they made it seem like it was a secret up to the last minute

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees

    Pros

    Not a lot of pros here besides the people I happened to meet while working here. Pay is decent.

    Cons

    Fluctuation in hours. One month you are scheduled full time or overtime and the next month you are laid off, eligible for unemployment until they start up again. Happens 2-3 times a year. Inconsistent in every sense. Upper Management only cares about money and not the employees. The turnover is insanely high. Overall a do not recommend unless you want to hate your job.

    Advice to Management

    Care about your employees!!!

    "Great Company"

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Rockford, TN

    I have been working at Flex-N-Gate full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Fast paced and performance driven. Flex-N-Gate strives for continuous improvement in all areas. Acquisition of new business and growth are at the core of Flex-N-Gate philosophy . A proven blueprint for success that has created solid market value.

    Cons

    It won't take long for you to learn what is expected of you by Corporate Management at Flex-N-Gate. They walk fast, talk fast and expect you to keep up. Lead, follow, or get out of the way. I don't really see this as a con, but if you are lazy or over sensitive you may not fit in.

    Advice to Management

    Stay the course. New plant acquisitions continue to bring more revenue to our company. The fact that we continue to expand while others continue to sell or simply close plants speaks volumes.

    Pros

    The easy work and the benefits that comes included, respectful management and they also show a lot of love and appreciation.

    Cons

    The overbearing hours and some of the outrageous acts of favoritism to certain employees if you met the supervisor's standards.

    Advice to Management

    Lower the hours and give the employees a little bit more days off, ease off of the pressure of training new people.
