  1. "Warehouse Manager"

    I worked at Gorman-Rupp (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Distributor network was top notch. It was a pleasure to serve my customers. Management had confidence in my ability to operate the satellite warehouse so it was a pleasure to serve our customers through continuous improvement practices and independent ideas.

    Cons

    Worked through lunch most days to stay on top of orders, but that was my own choice.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to retain top notch distributors and provide excellent customer service and you will see continued success.

    I worked at Gorman-Rupp as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Laid back atmosphere
    Corporate officers very friendly
    40 hour work week

    Cons

    Most of the people who work there are older
    Work done would not be the same work done if you were an entry level employee

    I have been working at Gorman-Rupp full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits. Incentives for education. Plenty of employee training.

    Promotions from within not as common in recent years, which has changed culture.

    Promote those who know and understand company philosophy.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Long term employment with a company that has been the cornerstone of the mid sized town where they are located

    Cons

    Low compensation compared to industry standard. Slow decision making about everything.

    Advice to Management

    Stop resting on the reputation the company has created, invest in the employees. The company is getting older and being reactionary is going to put the company in a very tough spot in a few years.

    I worked at Gorman-Rupp part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There are many great people to work with. Great opportunities to move up. My manager was very helpful with what ever I needed. Relaxing atmosphere for the most part.

    Cons

    Like all places, there are politics in the office. All departments have multiple silos within them. Didn't have enough work after lunch, so was running around and looking for work.

    Advice to Management

    Try and cut down on some of the silos that are in the different departments. It would be nice if they talked to one another. Upgrade the computer systems and use a more streamlined system.
