    Pros

    Very customer focused company that focuses on innovation and adding value in many vertical markets.

    Cons

    travel and fast paced environment - not for people who just want 'a job'...

    Advice to Management

    keep supporting the team that works together!

    I worked at SafeRack (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    No pros there.they need to take better care of the employees on the floor instead of those in office.they have no idea what fabrication is all about.

    Cons

    I'm embarrassed I worked around so many dummies as long as I did.

    Advice to Management

    Take better care of your welders they are making the money for the company.

    Pros

    Great company with a family atmosphere. Ownership and management honestly care about the people they work with... if you enjoy being part of a team this is a great company to work for.. your contributions are noticed and truly appreciated. Tremendous potential to earn great $$$$

    Cons

    When oil and gas are down SafeRack feels it. Recent diversification and new product offerings are helping avoid those economic downturns.

    Advice to Management

    Keep communication flowing between employees and management.

    I have been working at SafeRack full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    A handful of really talented individuals who work a Saferack because 1) It's the only real industry within 50 miles of Andrews or 2) Because they're getting paid big $$$ to be loyal.

    Cons

    That handful of talented team members are muddied by the ineptitude of most of the rest of the individuals in the company. Most don't have education. Most have never known anything except the comfort of Carbis or SafeRack and have never experienced any new ideas. Don't go hear if you want to grow as a professional.

    Advice to Management

    Elevate your team.

    I worked at SafeRack full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Leader in industry.
    American Made.
    Free Parking.
    Soda Machine.
    In case you can't tell I really can't say much good about this place and I have been working in sales for over two years now.

    Cons

    Fear of job security. Mass Layoffs always happening. Management will tell employees everyone is safe and things are good then turnaround and layoff 30 people.
    Constant change in job status, job duties, and job description. People are asked to go from full time to part all the time. Never the other way around.

    Advice to Management

    Care about the people in your building. It will resonate with the clients as well.

    relax the job will get done, with less pressure less mistakes will be made.

    Cons

    mileage because I live outside of Andrews

    I have been working at SafeRack full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Family atmosphere.

    Reinvestment in the company to promote and service growing sales.

    Continuous upgrades in manufacturing technologies.

    Cutting edge product innovations that keep SafeRack the leader in our industry

    Cons

    We have endured some personnel set backs with our growth. Historically, we have had low turnover in all areas of our company, which is the expectation. A more refined approach to hiring qualified candidates that fit into the SafeRack culture needs to be used to ensure the best candidates are brought in to perpetuate that winning formula and assist in our continued growth.
         Long work hours accompany success. Expect to work hard and have that effort pay off in the end.

    Advice to Management

    Keep encouraging input from your foot soldiers (sales, engineering, customer service, and production personnel) and use that information to keep pace with changing market conditions and most importantly customer expectations. That is what has built the happy customer base we service and will be the recipe for success in the future.

    Great company to work for. They don't micro manage their sales team, but they do expect results, which should be expected in a sales driven company.

    Cons

    Aggressive expansion slowed a little due to the current market conditions

    Pros

    Nice folks to work for. Crew I worked with were young, very fast pasted. Very clean shop well laid out . Great brake room with plenty of space.

    Cons

    Night shift crew and day shift crews at odds over workmanship and time spent. Employees play music way to loud as they use amps to blast there music. If your a temp forget about being hired on.

    Advice to Management

    Remember older people work steady and try hard to keep up with much younger employees. Try to match your teams better closer to age and skill level. Your pay scale is very low for what is expected in production.
