    I worked at RESCAR full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    good health benefits flexible hours and family oriented people.

    Cons

    Poor Upper Management as in vice president and hr.

    Advice to Management

    Better train admins. A lot of them don't know how to operate their own task and pull management away from their jobs and duties.

    I worked at RESCAR

    Pros

    A lot of overtime, unfortunately mostly mandatory.

    Cons

    Management doesn’t even follow their own rules. No matter what they have a policy that puts the blame on you, the company is never at fault.

    Advice to Management

    Sell the company and everyone would be better off.

    I worked at RESCAR full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Sorry, cannot give any "pro" advice.

    Cons

    * Low pay, very low raises * Zero respect from management * Way too much paperwork * CEO calls employees "stupid" or insinuates this. * Upper management has zero empathy * Buys cheap everything. * Our office was composed of cast off desks, chairs, file cabinets from junk the plant had cast off. * No running water, no place to wash hands, portapotty year round. * No appreciation or respect.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of dysfunctional family members. Pay better to keep better employees. Respect and appreciate employees. Get a sensible safety program; the dog & pony show you have now is a joke.

    I worked at RESCAR full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    The hours were decent but they have got to be the absolute worst at the pay rate and in the rates of annual raises.

    Cons

    It's all about the big dogs. If you're not related to someone in their corporate office, don't expect much. They only care about making money and cutting corners to make sure less people make more money on the jobs so that they get more in corporate instead of caring to pay their employees. The staring rate vs the amount you end up making in many years doesn't add up to the pay deserved in a normal company. The turnover...

    Advice to Management

    Stop thinking that the paycheck corporate gets is more important than the hard working individuals who do the "real" work.
