    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

    Paycheck each week is all i have

    Cons

    Spend my time worrying about if we have a job and owners ride around in Limos and don't seem to care

    remember who does all the hard work

    Dishonest and corrupt senior management. Reckless and unnecessary spending. Poor overall management with limited leadership skills. Unrealistic expectations from under qualified managers without proper leadership or training abilities.

    Advice to Management

    Respect your empoyees, provide reasonable expectations, measure accurately and fairly, don't make misleading promises, and you will get better results.

    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.

    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 (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Employees were nice and good to work with. Facility was very nice.

    Cons

    Management talked about change but didn't allow time for implementation. Decisions were decided ambiguously. Benefits were not great.

    Advice to Management

    Really look at your management team and evaluate without bias'.

    I have been working at SafeRack (More than a year)

    Pros

    Many "pros" have shifted to cons after budget cuts and reckless spending. Used to be very good money in sales role.

    The team managers are great.

    Company provides MacBooks and iPads.

    Cons

    First off and most importantly, multiple issues with wrong amounts (less) paid on commission checks.

    Ownership and leadership recklessly spend. This combined with the industry times have led to many of our co-workers losing jobs and even taking forced pay cuts. Company pays for many of our reps to fly out of the Carolinas to work nationwide & Canada around 42 weeks a year with rental cars (opposed to hiring more in territory reps).

     The head office in Andrews, SC is covered in tiny $1000 chandeliers yet employees are wondering if they are going to lose their job after performing well.

    Home office also has literally a glass ceiling and walls that have corporate employees looking over and working above hourly employees.

    Run with an old school mentality with a sort of no fun, no play culture when in the office.

    No real sales or lead generation process. We had an inside sales team sending qualified opportunities and helping with transactional deals but that has sense been cut due to layoffs or most people from inside leaving.

    We use a CRM created by the owner (who also runs 6-7 other companies and makes his CRM and demo configurator) that is really not efficient in comparison to others and only use because its a product ownership is trying to market.

    A lot of good people at SafeRack but executive leadership seems questionable at best
