    Pros

    Great company that provides both customers and its employees unmatched support. Get to work autonomously without a bunch of unnecessary tasks like call reports and budgets.
    Health benefits are covered 100%
    Company is strong and continues to reinvest
    $500m in inventory to sell from.

    Cons

    Of course everyone wants to make more money. The 401K program is pretty weak, but better than nothing. No company cars for salesmen.

    Pros

    Good crew, nice employees, many with experience.

    Cons

    Sitting in cubicles for 8 hours isn't my thing.

    Stop chest pounding and teach me some real skills.

    I have been working at Milton CAT full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There are some really good people working on the warehouse. Unfortunately management does not seem to know how to effectively run the process flow. Supervisors that never talk to you does not help. Also, watch out for the union steward, he does NOT work with you.

    Cons

    Management, union, no goals or direction

    Advice to Management

    May want to consider using currently warehouse management techniques to adequately manage the flow of material, including staffing needs.

    Pros

    decent raises, benefits, family owned

    Cons

    equal pay between men and women, lack of communication between departments

    Advice to Management

    Women and men should be treated equally

    Pros

    Flexible hours for the most part. Opportunities to make changes as business needs indicate.
    Ability to come up with innovative ways to solve a problem

    Cons

    Some of the bogeys created are un reachable and the upper management is completely out of touch with reality. Priories change as the wind blows.

    Advice to Management

    have competent people run your organization and recognize talent when you have it.

    Pros

    Large company with multiple locations offering movement and changes in career path. Company with large financial backing provides some job security in unsteady markets/times.

    Cons

    My experience is confined to the parts warehouse, it is run by thankless, ruthless, and verbally abusive managers. The leaders and decision makers have no regard for ethics, treatment of its employees, nor do they have no loyalty to anyone except for their bottom line which equates into a nice bonus for themselves. If you are a person of strong ethics and morals this is the last place you should ever seek employment.
