    Pros

    Growing company, nice equipment decent benefits, friendly people, good job security

    To many managers, policys always updating, pay could be better for expected work load, vacation pay doesn't reflect hours worked, bad managers are just moved or promoted instead of being fired

    Advice to Management

    Increase employee surveys but actually act on them. If you take care of your employees they will take care of your company! Fire bad management don't move them

    I have been working at MacAllister Machinery full-time

    Pros

    Friendly and welcoming environment. Accessible management. Great talent at all levels of organization. Consistent opportunities for advancement. Organization spans multiple industries.

    Cons

    Divisions operate in their own silos. Inter-division support can be difficult to earn. Some division's management hierarchy is relatively flat which makes for few promotion opportunities without switching divisions.

    Pros

    This is a destination workplace. It's hard to get on here because they look for the very best. There are numerous Pros: competitive salary (sometimes market-leading), benefits, teamwork, culture, facilities...

    Cons

    It's an old-school company that represents an old-school brand, so they aren't always the most progressive in their policies. Also change seems to occur slowly sometimes. You have to be adaptable and patient to be successful here.

    I worked at MacAllister Machinery full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great work environment with potential to grow. Some of the companies management is set in a micro management mind set but for the most part it’s a progressive up and coming rental company

    Cons

    Certain managers at a newer branch consistently showed lack of common sense and cannot control every little thing. Rental business is always changing and you cannot micromanage your employees.

    Advice to Management

    No micro management. Let people do their job
