    I have been working at Primus Technologies full-time for more than 20 years

    Pros

    Primus is a great employer, family and people love working here. Five stars ! A fabulous team of people. In 2015, our Owner-CEO demoted the new President who didn't perform to a solo salesperson role but let him keep the “President” title. None of us know why he was allowed to keep the title ! The ex-Prez, bitter about his demotion instead of gratful for a second chance, over the years keeps not-so-secretly posting phony,...

    This is a great team of people. I cannot say enough about Primus !

    Advice to Management

    Have Glassdoor remove the many vindictive, phony reviews the ex-"president" posted since his demotion.

    Pros

    Profit sharing, PTO, benefits, holiday Turkey and Ham, climate control environment, clean work

    Cons

    Supervisors are unprofessional and power hungry. Constant lies, no talking, people in charge with out people skills, parts always out of stock & employees blamed for it. Getting wrote up for things out of your control, Leads manipulating work so they get numbers and get praise while your numbers are low and it's because they won't let you run boards. Constant stress and unnecessary drama. The job itself would be...

    Advice to Management

    The CEO should interview or talk to his employees to find out how the PIC's behavior is affecting moral. Employees are afraid to complain for fear of retaliation. If you are doing your job and have a conversation talking low without stopping your work flow, talking should not be a big deal. I get that we need to pay attention to detail but it's so over the top militant that my job has become stressful and unenjoyable...

      Pros

      Glad to no longer be employed here

      Cons

      CEO is bully and abusive should not be allowed to treat employees the way he does. CEO dislikes when truth is told about him so he’ll create a positive review within minutes of bad reviews. It’s a matter of time before business folds. He’s paying off former management employees so no one finds out truth about his behavior.

      Pros

      CEO is great and very kind treats everyone like family. He’s a gentlemen, great person and loved here. Anyone saying other wise has an ax to grind either fired or misreprestented themselves during their interviews and on the bubble.

      Cons

      Busy days and require strong performance

      Pros

      I was hired this year and love it. My wife and I attended our first company Christmas Party at the Williamsport Country Club last night. It proved what we’d been hearing about how great Primus is to employees. Everyone I work with came and it was a very fun night that went late. People like each other here and get along. Everything was top notch. They do a Thanksgiving meal for all employees every year and a lot of other...

      Pros

      The CEO, President and supervisors are all very involved and friendly. they constantly thank everyone daily for the work we do. Allot of people have been at the company for a long time go out of their way to help new people. Every one takes pride. A great company to work for. My first profit sharing of $1,000 last quarter !

      Cons

      More time to try out different jobs before starting

      Advice to Management

      500 great people. The CEO owner and management team are awesome and everyone is respected as family. Fun, safe, friendly place to work. Pay is $15 or more per hour and 30 paid days off. You take it anytime. Overtime is voluntary and weeks are 40 hours. For the military, aero space, medical and companies we supply, the work is a lot of fun and very satisfying.

      Primus has it ups and downs just like any company, all I can say is it's going to be a great company and everyone is going to want to work at Primus where can you go and start with 136 HRs of vacation and the pay is great for the williamsport area

      Cons

      Not enough employees to get the work out and the customers are suffering but they are working really hard to get new employees in
