    I worked at Fry-Wagner Moving & Storage full-time

    Pros

    Employees are paid every week

    Cons

    Cliquish, managers play favorites, Lower managers use upper management like "Wait till your father gets home" "Do you want me to talk to Earl about this matter?" Managers are promoted more on seniority and rarely on skill set. Management will play one department against another. Each manager can follow company rules as they feel. So, while one department follows them to the letter another department will be more lax...

    Advice to Management

    Most managers need to take a course on how to manage employees. Things should be fairer as to the Christmas party. Some have never had the "luck" of the draw that repeat "lucky" employees have had.

  5. A good company for a Mover.

      I worked at Fry-Wagner Moving & Storage

      Pros

      The best thing about working in the Kansas City office was my peers in various departments. The people in customer service and sales really look out for each other and help each other out immensely because the job can be demanding and stressful and they truly operate as a team to make everyone as successful as possible. There is a divide, I felt, between office staff and operations that made things a lot harder than they...

      Cons

      As great as the office staff was, I felt upper management was lacking heavily. When I first started, the training and support was average at best, they really throw you to the wolves there, but allow you to make mistakes because there is a learning curve in the moving industry. But once the initial love affair is over I felt upper management's support and availability really started to wane. There would be times where...

      Advice to Management

      People like me who are college educated are going to use places like Fry-Wagner as a lily-pad company. Somewhere to get experience in a certain field and then move on to a better company down the road. I know around the same time I gave my notice, there were others there who were moving on to other companies as well for similar reasons. Everyone likes the lunches and little treats the company provides for being great...

      I worked at Fry-Wagner Moving & Storage for more than a year

      Pros

      the blue collar workers you would work with, if working locally in st. louis. it's the team spirit that keeps the good people going who work here.

      Cons

      cons, oh yeah theres plenty of cons, they're called the management, like a snake in the grass. save yourself some grief, go to work somewhere else.

      Advice to Management

      my advice, yeah go play on the highway. or just step aside and then some decent, honest people could do the job without making their living off of somebody elses back.
