    Pros

    You can gain alot of friendships. With co-workers and customers

    Cons

    You can work your all day everyday. But they dont care. You have to be best friends with higher management in order for them to even look your direction. You can run a department on your own for 3 years and they dont notice. Once they get tired of you they find any reason to fire you.

    Advice to Management

    Take the time to know your employees rather then showing up 1 time a month and take the word of your child hood friend to fire someone.

    There are numerous opportunities to find a different job within the company
    They do pay well for some

    Weed out bigots. Reward great employees. don't always rely on what middle management tells you. Also, get more diversity in executive management.

    I worked at RDO Equipment full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great co workers, pay benefits and quarterly bonuses.

    Cons

    Plays favorites and management could be better. They will prefer to fire you than move you to a different position in the shop (when you been there for years and, there is plenty of places to move to, especially when you're training for a different position) when they end a small, one man position.

    Advice to Management

    The management is not bad except for Chuck. Cares more about numbers and doesn't understand how things work in the shop. If something takes longer than needed, than he's questioning you about, but doesn't understand when you explain sometimes things take longer than the hours given. Also, not very friendly, sociable and condescending.

    Pros

    Great atmosphere to work in, the company takes care of its employees and gives you everything you need to do your job.

    Cons

    Lots of growth which is a great thing, the growing pains of refining how the business runs can be challenge

    Keep up the great work

    I have been working at RDO Equipment (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, and pay. Tons of training provided by RDO to further career. Great family oriented company.

    Cons

    Some management tends to jump to conclusions, and not support employees when reworks come around. Service manager lacks the mechanical background to mentor service techs. Shop service advisors at the Plugerville Tx location are often unskilled. One got the position by sucking up not talent. He was a mediocre technician, and is proving to be a mediocre service advisor.

    Advice to Management

    Vet potential employees better. When promoting from with in look at the entire package. Stop putting people in the shop, and service trucks that lack the experience necessary to complete the job. Use the 90day probation more

    Pros

    Very relaxed environment, attire, music playing, and supervision. Friendly staff that become like family. Freedom to come and go as you please. Willingness to train you regardless of cost. All sorts of perks, company phone, wifi, computer, vehicle. Easy to get promoted and fair pay.

    Cons

    Sometimes the lack of management creates issues with lazy employees "getting away" with things. As with most companies favoritism is prevalent here, just do your best and you should be okay. Lack of organization/structure at times.

    Advice to Management

    Just listen to your employees concerns. If there is an employee that continuously receives complaints from customers and colleagues, perhaps more action should be taken to investigate that person (or write up). It's seems like it's to hard to get fired here, and some people take advantage of that.

    I have been working at RDO Equipment full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Pay and PTO time is great. Nice facility and the product lines are great.

    Cons

    In the past 8 years we have gone through 7 General Managers and Fargo management wonders why market share is down along with service volume. This is all impacted by the turn over. In 2014 we replaced the following good employees. Two service managers-Five salesman-One parts manager.
    The customers and the community have lost all faith in management out of Fargo. This has forced our customers to move towards Cat&Case&Ford New Holland.

    Advice to Management

    It is very disappointing to hear from our owner. If I had my way I would just shut this Tucson location down. It’s not the ones you let go. It’s the General Manager you have now is why we have had such a large turn over this year

    Pros

    The company is family owned and truly give back to the employees. There is a sense that the owners care.

    Cons

    This isn't the best company for advancement unless you're willing to move since most stores have less than 40 employees.

    Pros

    Profit sharing, family atmosphere, and growth. You can work as much as you want and they try to make sure you are happy.

    Should get paid more for the amount of work.

    Advice to Management

    If someone is doing well make sure they stick around because those people will make great management and culture.
