    I have been working at Motor Coach Industries (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The market for this product has turned around, resulting in fewer employee layoffs. Also, good benefits if you are supporting a family.

    Cons

    The company significantly reduced starting wages along with the climb up on the pay scale. The hourly pay rate is below other comparable factories. Until you serve five full years you have no choice on when to use your vacation days. You are not excused to miss a day for inclement weather, sick children, and your own sick/ personal time is extremely limited and unpaid. There is no opportunity for advancement and is undoubtedly thankless, yet very technical work.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to boost morale and up the perks! Work a little closer with the people on the floor doing the work. Surprisingly, you may find technical answers and worthwhile opinions from the ones with the hands on experience.

    Pros

    Salary was generous, the people are knowledgeable, motivated, and friendly.

    Cons

    The executive team have zero business acumen, no regard for their employees, They promote incompetents. And provide little or no support to the field

    Advice to Management

    Sell the company to a quality team, then jump out the fifth floor windows.

    I worked at Motor Coach Industries full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Decent salary and benefits plan

    Cons

    One of the worst companies I've ever worked for. Antiquated systems, requiring redundant database entries for one simple task, with constant interruptions; this is a recipe for failure. Bullying and harassment by egotistic men.

    Advice to Management

    Your claims that MCI is "one big family" is bogus. I NEVER got that feeling; in fact, quite the opposite.

    Pros

    Pay and many of the employees.

    Cons

    Management is less than desirable. They continue to put or move unqualified persons in supervisor or management positions that have no leadership skills. It's sad how such a wonderful company in the beginning has declined.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees concerns and quit just placing people in jobs without posting positions. Actually support your internal and external customers in a positive and ethical manner.

    I worked at Motor Coach Industries full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There are no pros to this company. The only pros to this company was building buses.

    Cons

    Family members gang up on individuals who they don't like. They threaten management they will quit, or boycott the company. "Fire that guy, or you lose 7 employees". Management are a bunch of cowards! All that would be needed to straighten this company out is a good oak baseball bat.
    Had tools stolen out of my tool box. Need to ask for a sick day in advance! How do you know when you are going to be sick?
    Last and final thing Franks. The company required the employee to furnish their own tools. Why keep those that borrow or steal the next mans tools?

    Overheard some guys talking in the office one day. One of them wanted to know if they should keep dumping unwanted chemicals in the river.

    Advice to Management

    Fire all of Management at the Pembina Factory, and start over fresh!
