    Pros

    Some very talented craftsmen work there, some good quality equipment. the place does have potential that sadly will never be realized.

    Cons

    Worst place I have ever worked. I would not argue with the negative posts. Amazing that the place has not been cited for more violations.

    Advice to Management

    Retire.

    I worked at Promaxima Manufacturing full-time

    Pros

    They have a great product to sell with a great price.

    Cons

    The owner, Bob is an abusive, overbearing, jerk. Normally this wouldnt be a problem if the owner rarely showed up to work, but this guy is there 6-days a week and makes the environment atrosious to be in. He verbally abuses and swears at employees, he belittles them, and I have seen him throw staplers at a minimum of 2-employees, and encountered a physical altercation with the man, where fists were thrown....

    Advice to Management

    Retire, so someone normal can come run the business and make it a beareable place to work.

    Pros

    None that I would care to speak one, none that would matter any way out make any kind of difference so what's that point

    Cons

    No direct deposit, owner had illegals working in warehouse and sent out with the drivers otr (over the road) , if your a company driver no taxes are taken out of your check the first ninety days, trucks are keep in our condition as well as the trailers, trucks and trailers all don't have proper registration if any at all if not past due, will hold your check for the must dumbest reasons to try and manipulate you no respect, owner say one thing does another, company does not know how to put things in black and white on paper, to much to keep listing...

    NONE that I can think of, its a nightmare at promaxima.

    Cons

    BOB LEPPKE IS A JOKE..he is very disrespectful towards employees, pay you salary and work you like a dog, no raises and u will get fired if u ask for one, make u pull heavy loads and make u break DOT rules just to get his load down the road. BEWARE this company will spoil your driving record and make it impossible for u to get unemployment or another job....Bunch of JOKES!!

    Advice to Management

    Get more organized, let people do what they are paid to do, drivers need more home time, hard working drivers should be treated better And need raises when they are due.

    Pros

    There nothing good I could say.

    Cons

    The owner very mean, curses employees and has no respect for anyone. They don't have direct deposit holds on to your check until end of day. Never pays his vendors on time. A complete mad house.

    Advice to Management

    Treat people like you want to be treated. Offer some type of incentives if you want any one to deal with that irrate owner.

    I worked at Promaxima Manufacturing full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Working for Promaxima was a challenge! When I am challenged, I respond with determination to succeed. I give my best effort when ever I perform a job and that is exactly what I did everyday at Promaxima. I felt welcomed and valued by my co-workers and we used teamwork everyday to take care of our customers.

    Cons

    If you are lazy, Promaxima is NOT the company for you! Self starters and self motivators will fit in here with ease.
