    Pros

    Fast paced growth for career minded employees. Great stock ownership plan available to employees.

    Cons

    It's fast paced, but that's what keeps it interesting. If you get really succesful doing whatever you are hired to do in any position, it gets noticed.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on doing what you're doing, it's working.

    I have been working at Rush Enterprises full-time

    Pros

    Senior Management really cares about employees, regardless of employee level. There are plenty of opportunities throughout the business. The company maintains being up to speed with technology and continuously makes changes to remain efficient

    Cons

    Medical benefits are a little on the pricey side

    Advice to Management

    5 year business plan is very well put together, just need to continue to assure that every employee is aware of the plan. More training on customer service for customer service representatives of the business (Front Counter Personnel).

    I worked at Rush Enterprises full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good pay, lots of opportunities

    Cons

    A lot of redundant work, unless you are a big customer you get treated very unfairly. If it doesn’t fit in the “Rush Truck Center” mold, it is looked down upon, even if it’s to help out a long time customer.

    Advice to Management

    Things are haywire in the regional area I worked in. I’ve always been an honest employee, on the management side I seen a lot of things get brushed under the rug that shouldn’t have been. It hurt the integrity of the company, the hard work i’ve Seen other employees put in and the way customers where treated. If upper management really knew what went on they would be furious!

    Pros

    Decent pay, good 401K, company vehicle.

    Cons

    You are nothing but a number. You have too many people giving too many directions, this company does not care about its customers or employees.

    Advice to Management

    Better training, more precise expectations, less micromanagement.

    Pros

    I loved my co-workers and my direct supervisor.

    Cons

    No coordinated training. No one there who really knew the job details.

    Advice to Management

    Your rating is low. A lot of low moral. Job security always threatened by others.
