    Pros

    Coworkers were great. Good honest people.

    Cons

    Management didn't communicate well. Kind of had an "us versus them" mentality towards the workers.

    I have been working at Road Machinery full-time

    Pros

    Very good people below the management level

    Cons

    The most disfunctional management group ever, a president who should not be in charge of a McDonald's he is so incompetent, Vice President who has absolutely no idea what he is doing and some guy in charge of parts and service who hides every time there is a problem. A Japanese fellow in charge of these clowns who has to be the most incompetent of all because he hired the others.

    Advice to Management

    Look in the mirror and see what incompetence looks like

    Pros

    There some good people there but they are quickly turned by management and the pros they had in people they let go or demoted them

    Cons

    This is the worst I've ever seen. I mean look at reviews. Not just disgruntled employees. Great people have been fired or let go for lack of mismanaging. And upper management gets rid of great employees that are a threat to HR .. 2-3 presidents in 5 years , VPs gone, hire and re hire positions , complete turn over and firings. Be very very wary

    HR is the worst I've ever seen. Culture is very very uncomfortable people and starts with HR

    Advice to Management

    They need to close the doors or start over with all
    New staff that takes pride and values it's people

    I worked at Road Machinery full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Regular pay check, Medical Benefits okay, job itself ok, liked the people I worked with.
    Mon-Fri Day job for the most part.

    Cons

    Management is a continuing mess, high turn over, no true leadership. Lack of communication and miscommunication on a regular basis. Lack of employee training in many cases. No raises, reviews must sit on someone's desk because they are never delivered to employees.
    Upper management has no clue on day to day business, they are only looking at the daily numbers.

    Advice to Management

    Bring in some true leadership, Communicate, listen to your employees, they have great ideas.
    Recognition and training, building strong employees and true team work would go a long ways in trying to keep this company solvent.

    I worked at Road Machinery full-time

    Pros

    Pay regular and mild benefits package.

    Cons

    No upper management support. Off shore parent company culture collides with employees. No matter how many hours you may put in it's never enough. If you are looking for a seven day work week including holidays then this is the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Sell the dealership off and leave. You have no business operating here with your negative business model. You have turned over all the great talent . The leaders you seek will not afford their time for you to waste.

    Pros

    Steady paycheck, great brands. Many loyal customers, good vendor partners, until a few months ago the company seemed to be making very nice progress.

    Cons

    Lack of continuity at executive level, foreign owners think of themselves as superior to Americans. Disgusting.

    Advice to Management

    Get and keep good leaders, stop chasing them away.
