    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.

    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.

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

    Pros

    Initially compensation was great. Sells a good product.

    Cons

    No 401k match. Located in a run down town in the middle of no where. Leadership has made decision recently and acted carelessly that has cost many people their jobs and livelihoods.

    Advice to Management

    Focus within. Control the outrageous spending. Focus on parts of the business that are actually producing and growing.

    Pros

    I started at SafeRack earlier in the summer and I have been very impressed thus far. Management listens to the employees and empowers them to do a good job without micromanagement. You can see there is a lot of opportunity for advancement based on the expansions they are doing at the plant in Andrews. Really good crowd of people here.

    Cons

    As with any growing company, there have been days when I have felt like I've been juggling a bunch of balls in the air.

    Pros

    The continual improvement of the manufacturing process is amazing. Customers continue to be impressed and return for additional projects over and over.

    Cons

    Not many, just a lot that had to get done everyday, could use more people to help with all the business

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the forward thinking, the competition will have to try and keep up, good place to be.
