    I have been working at Gregory Poole (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Fellow hourly workers. Two weeks paid vacation after a year.

    Cons

    Health plan is poor. Old management is stuck talking about the glory days of the company, while the new younger management people that are getting hired right out of collage have no clue what they are doing.

    I worked at Gregory Poole full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good co-workers and mgt. The work schedule is great with Monday - Friday work weeks on most job titles. Start times vary depending on job titles as well.

    Cons

    Poor software system thats very cumbersome and slow. Some of the older Mgt team have been there too long and not very willing to help when situations arise. Some people need to retire and let others take the lead so the company could be more productive.

    I worked at Gregory Poole full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Difficult to get fired from. Benefits are fair.

    Cons

    Good ole boy network. To advance you need to be either male and or Caucasian as nobody in middle or upper management belong to any other ethnic group. During the course of almost 2 decades I applied for close to 10 different jobs and was selected for none. All this while holding a 2 year and 4 year degree. While at the same time watching others move to different positions and be promoted for doing work of a similar caliber. After a decade and a half in the same positions I was informed by accident that a supervisor position had been created specifically for a person from outside the company and that I and my colleague would be responsible for training this person. Training this person to supervise us and help us do our jobs better. This information came the day before the person started so no one other than this person (namely me) would apply for the position. When an issue was made over it and the fact that the person had no formal education where I did I was told "College was not as important as I thought it was." And summoned into a meeting where an attempt was made to convince me that race had nothing to do with this decision. My former supervisor also fraternized with associates under her charge and showed them preferential treatment in scheduled work. one such episode almost led to a physical altercation between a tech and dispatcher. So if you are not Caucasian and male this company may provide you with a job but not much else.

    Advice to Management

    Make a conscientious effort at diversity. It makes good business sense. A segment of your workforce is being marginalized and being made unable to reach their full potential. If you plan to do business into the next half century its smart to make an effort to make your workforce most closely resemble the demographic trends.

    I worked at Gregory Poole full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Decent people to work with, for the most part. Decent shops, even some of the older branches. If you are just starting out in the this industry you will not find a better place to get good actual experience. Just be prepared to know only Cat.

    Cons

    Management is mostly disconnected with most of the employees. Managing other shops from afar. Lack of upward mobility. No serious reinvestment for long time employees. Some of the diversification is narrowing. When I worked for GP and told someone the reaction was always, "you must be loaded!". The truth is far from that. Cat only, no cross training for other brands that this company does not have a stake in.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to continue the awesome path that you once were on, reevaluate the need for more and more managers. Offer better pay, not just 60% of the local industry standards. Also get rid of those that hurt the work environment, dead weight employees are just that dead weight. Listen to your employees, really listen. Get back to what used to mattered, happy well trained employees. And for god's sake cross train to expand your business in the industries you already serve.
