    I have been working at Snap-on full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    As employees we are allowed to challenge the status quo. Snap-on allows us to think for ourselves and to bring new ideas to the table. Management seems to take the time to listen to our concerns.

    Cons

    The only con to me is the drive.

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening to the employees.

    I have been working at Snap-on full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Snap-on has great people that I do enjoy working for. They take care of their people and it is one of the reasons I've stayed with the company. They strive to coninually improve processes an I appreciate the corporate support in continually refining procedures and any issues that may arise.

    Cons

    Org structure confuses sometimes. Communication doesn't always flow as it should. Some are just better at it than others it seems.

    Advice to Management

    Ask yourself is this meeting necessary and then ask if everyone absolutely has to be there. Keep asking your employees for ideas and information and continue to value those opinions, they are shooting you straight!

    Pros

    Great people, products and reputation.

    Highly political environment that can inhibit good decision making

    As a public company the focus is always on quarterly results. Would be beneficial to occasionally spend time on longer term strategies.

    I have been working at Snap-on full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    (2) Weeks vacation first year of employment, (3) Weeks vacation after three years of service, on and on thereafter. Snap-On Tools product discount is very generous. If your are hired in a position that requires travel, this employer will allow you to retain all of your loyalty points with all the lodging, airline and car rental companies. Traditional perks assured. Management is very flexible with schedules. Compensation is competitive, considering former employers that I've worked for. Also the employee stock purchase program is great. It has allowed me to easily save money. I highly recommend this company to a person who is starting to come of age in their career. When you get hired at this company. Your friends and family will say "you work for a good company".

    Cons

    Some of the positions require a lot of travel. Frequent, extended amounts of travel 90-100% of your working weeks. You have to love the open road in order to be successful in any of the positions that require travel.

    Advice to Management

    Management at this company works very hard. And they do a great job.

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

    Pros

    most amazing job and company I ever worked for... had the best three years of my life and was the only woman in 90 yrs of snapon history to receive the circle of honor ring. They actually made me a scaled down version of the man's ring. I received numerous awards (as noted on my resume). I would work again for Snapon in a minute!!

    Cons

    The only down side that I faced is that I ran the route with my significant other and due to personal relationship problems we faced, I had to leave the route.

    Advice to Management

    Contact me and give me another job in Snapon. My awards and accomplishments stand for themselves.
