    I worked at Prudential Overall Supply full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    A very stable job with a steady schedule

    Cons

    Every raise goes through the union therefore a raise happens to a company as a whole not to an individual regardless of work quality

    I worked at Prudential Overall Supply full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    They treat their employees as part of the team. They really care about you. They have a great communication system so that the line employees have access to the corporate office. They value your opinion. They are very big on safety and protecting their employees.

    Cons

    They could upgrade their equipment more wisely. They do have yearly profit planning meetings where some of the profit is reinvested back into the company; I don't really believe this is a negative though, they do the best they can with what they have considering the business climate.

    Advice to Management

    Manage by walking around a little more. Get out there and say hi to line employees more often. This is encouraged by executive management but it could be followed through a little more by the middle management.

    Pros

    Lots of overtime, get to drive company trucks, given uniforms for the whole week, sometimes you have short days, most of the drivers are pretty cool to talk and hang with

    Cons

    Too much overtime at times, workload is massive with very little, very poor managing and all levels. Products are no where near the best and you are expected to sale regardless. The support you need from the company just isn't there . Kind of s every man for himself type feel , lots of trash talking. Trucks break down frequently.

    Advice to Management

    Reward your employees more with praise for their hard work . Care more about them as a person and not just some cash machine for the company. Be willing to get your hands dirty and not hind behind a desk when things are not going so well

    I have been working at Prudential Overall Supply full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits and competitive pay, owner and executives are fair, opportunities for advancement, tuition reimbursement, excellent training programs, car and cell phone allowances where applicable. No night or weekend work.

    Cons

    Sometimes can be long hours. Every position has a lot of high expectations. Holiday times mean more work to earn the day off.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to listen to your employees. Consider online universities as part of the reimbursement program. Stop finding small things throughout the year that affect employee's raises.

    I have been working at Prudential Overall Supply full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Internal promotion-I started as a management trainee in 1995 and worked my way up over the last 20 years. Tuition reimbursement-The company paid for me to go back to school and get my MBA while working full time at the University of New Mexico. Hands-on management from the owner-Dan Clark (second generation) is active on a daily basis in the basis; from running routes, to customer visits, to plant operational reviews Dan is working somewhere in his business every day. In addition, the third generation is also actively working in the business as an operations manager. Paid holidays, vacation, sick time, 401 K + 401K matching AND profit sharing, debt free, open door access and visibility to top executives, large majority of managers are internal promotions. There are a LOT of pros.

    Cons

    Having been in business since 1932 and in a very bricks and mortar industry the company is not always quick to adapt the newest technology or change its methods of operation.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on delivering services to customers that meet or exceed their expectations and hire and develop talent for future growth opportunities.

    Pros

    Its a job and you get paid on time

    Cons

    Weak executive management. Owner out of touch with reality - it was more important to not have any weeds or dust in the plant than to actually be doing a good job. General managers are hired out of college and learn on the job, causing all sorts of relationship and management issues. HR department is a joke.

    Advice to Management

    Hire real professionals to run the business, nepotism doesn't work. Come into this century.
