    I worked at Overhead Door full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There are no good points

    Cons

    A bunch of game playing, little to no accountability. Once it is determined that an employee isn't a good fit, every error is documented until there is enough to terminate. Meanwhile the employees that "play the game" are rewarded.

    Advice to Management

    Replace upper management at Overhead Door of St Louis

    Pros

    The hours and money are great!

    Cons

    The management does not have a realistic view of the business as a whole and the focus is on the numbers primarily rather than the customer or the employee.

    Advice to Management

    Try to take a more unbiased approach and let your emotions run the business less.

    I worked at Overhead Door full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The only positive is that you get paid every two weeks. I never had a paycheck bounce in my 10+ years here.

    Cons

    The backstabbing and micro-managing is ridiculous. It starts at the top, and goes downhill. Mid-level managers and supervisors love to play the blame game, and encourage a culture where taking ownership for one's shortcomings is non-existent. My manager loved to eavesdrop on phone conversations, and would butt in if she didn't like how the conversation was going. Open communications is a joke here. So is their mantra of "people first."

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to run the company like it is Japanese.

    Pros

    You meet some really nice people....

    You also meet some very mean people, I felt I lied on a daily basis to customers.

    Advice to Management

    Improve your moral, back up your core values.
