    I worked at Production Resource Group full-time

    Pros

    Health benefits were said to be top notch, the team seemed to be cool people to work with. Four 10 hour days a week was an awesome schedule.

    Cons

    I didn’t end up landing the position after all so I cannot express any cons about the company or what is was like to work with the Las Vegas location.

    Advice to Management

    Had an overall solid interview on October 16, 2017. I have a couple misdemeanors (first offense) on my record from a situation that happened a couple years ago and was honest from the gate during my interview about them. Was contacted a few days later with them saying “Good News, we’ve decided to move forward with your hiring process” After having issues landing other jobs because of the misdemeanors and having PRG tell me they were moving forward with my hiring process after already being told what was currently on my record was a GREAT feeling. I figured they discussed my situation and made a decision to move forward with my hiring process anyways. I was wrong. I took their drug test and submitted my background check paperwork. I waited over a month to just be told it’s a no go because of what was on my background check. I had made a mistake a couple years ago and since then have grown as a person tremendously. There is nothing more heartbreaking than trying to get your life on the right track and getting the feeling like a company is about to give you your chance at improving your life to just end up getting your heart crushed all over again and leaving you on the curb. It was confusing why they even moved forward with the process when I had expressed what was already on my record. For a warehouse position that doesn’t have the greatest turnover rate, I would think they’d want someone who wouldn’t care about how boring the position is because they need the work no matter what. I was ready to stick with PRG for the long haul and get my life back on track and put what happened two years ago behind me and move forward with life. A month of being the most happy and excited I had been in a while about the opportunity just ended up being huge waste of time. I would’ve rather had them not call me back after the interview than to get my hopes up the way everything went down. I wish they would’ve given me the opportunity to work with their company instead of defining me as a criminal because that is not who or what I am at all. I am a good person at heart and a great leader and team member. I listen and take direction well and execute tasks efficiently and precisely, I know I would’ve been a great asset to their team. I was ready to put in the work to move up in the ranks while starting at the bottom no matter how tough or boring the job was...

    I have been working at Production Resource Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Amazing health care package
    - Great 401k plan

    Cons

    - inconsistent management direction/initiatives between locations
    - no review process or raises given, even when asked for
    - lots of mid to senior level employees riding on the coat tails of others
    - work/life balance is nonexistent

    Advice to Management

    Corporate needs to make a plan that is implemented across all locations for how we do business. The accounting process needs to be cleaned up so that our vendors are paid on time. A review process, with raises based on performance, needs to be initiated across the company. Pay attention to the eager, hard working employees and get rid of the employees riding on their coat tails; we continue to loose great people because we burn them out and do not reward them.

    I worked at Production Resource Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Solid pay, $60,000, for someone with no sales experience.

    Cons

    Extreme lack of training!!! they expect you to know everything your first day on the gig.. come on now! No one in the sales office gets along (for the most part, lots of back stabbing and talking behind peoples back) and everyone bad mouths their superiors. Its an extremely toxic environment, TRUST ME on this one. God forbid you dont know something and go to ask a question and its as if your asking for a million dollars. This is not somewhere you want to work unless you can go and work on-site or with the true gentlemen in the QC departments and warehouse who all know the in's and outs', no questions asked! A1 type of guys!

    Advice to Management

    TRAIN PEOPLE!!!! INTROUDUCE PEOPLE TO THEIR NEW COWORKERS!!! This place was worse than high school. I sat there for a month trying to introduce myself and no on cared to say hello, no hello/good morning or a good night at the end of the day. The superiors walk pass by you as if you don't even exist! Screw that BS!
