    Pros

    Constant stream of work and there is opportunity to grow. If you are already a skilled mechanic this job is for you.

    Cons

    It is not newbie friendly as far as pay. Experience is a plus but I've seen guys that have been there years before me making half what I do solely based on experience outside of the company. You will be overworked.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your experienced employees they know what they are talking about. You may work here but tech and trade changes over time and so should the methods the company uses.

    Pros

    They will work with you once you've established yourself as a good employee. Company seems to like to promote from within.

    Cons

    For the kind of work that I was doing there (dispatcher for emergency roadside service) there were very few cons.

    Embrace new ideas and consider external talent to introduce different perspectives that will enable the business.
