    I worked at Kentucky Trailer full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of skills to learn, provide you with majority of the tools youll need for the job. On the job training to become proficient at welding with certifications available

    Cons

    management isn't the most organized or understanding at times, shops are split into "teams" which often leads to clashes and bickering. Pay is slightly below market average in some cases.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your workers and the questions they raise.

    Pros

    Great work atmosphere. Great group to work with. The management team is great about recognizing associates who contribute to the success of the company, and this is backed with compensation (when business is good). The company is very good about letting you take time for family issues when you really need it. They are family owned and realize that everyone has a family at home, and life does not always work around your work hours.

    Cons

    The trailer industry is very cyclical in general, and Kentucky Trailer is also very affected by the housing industry downturn. The compensation is great if business is doing well, but they have been in a down market since 2001. This continued downturn starts to get the associates worried about their carreers and future.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to diversify the product line to help with the cycles of the business. Keep up the good communication lines with the associates. This helps to build trust.
