  4. "Men in glass meeting room all the time and I wonder what they are talking about"

    I have been working at Sunstate Equipment full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Weekly paycheck and nice Corp bldg. Everyone is nice enough but don’t see anything out of the ordinary. Very quiet all around building .

    Cons

    I don’t see anyone having fun or even smile the way it was advertised to get me in the door. Leftover food from the meetings in the glass room are good.

    Advice to Management

    Doesn’t seem like the men in the glass meeting rooms are smiling either. I heard that it was better and happier even just a few years ago.

    I have been working at Sunstate Equipment full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Insurance, 401K, uniform service, work boot program

    Cons

    Long hours, no personal life, mandatory overtime, no precautions taken for working in the heat, management is tone-deaf, unsupportive, fake.

    Advice to Management

    If you really believe that this company still has core values, you need to do a better job at demonstrating that. The mandatory long hours is unacceptable, especially in the summer in Phoenix. Also, your onboarding process sucks and you really need to provide training. Stop micromanaging, start being proactive and engaged.

    I have been working at Sunstate Equipment (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Full benefits. Job security. Good people.

    Cons

    10 to 12 hour days. Open shops with coolers during 115 degree days. Always short handed. Corporate growing pains.

    Advice to Management

    Better facilities or climate control for current facilities. Don't loose sight of what made the company successful. Take care of the employees and they will take care of the customer and company.

    Pros

    When you start with Sunstate everything is peaches and cream and they put up a great front.

    Cons

    I’ve been with the company for SEVERAL years now and the management at local branches suck. They like to micro manage, falsify paperwork, and preach core values but don’t lead by them. There has been several employees walk out in the last few weeks and yet they blame the employees for leaving. Look at the management.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management (PHX) need to look into their regional, metro and branch managers before we loose all the dedicated employees. We lost one here in the Dallas area today that was one of the best employees I’ve see at the company. Dedicated, stayed late to cover when needed, always willing to give a hand when needed and was forced to resign for standing up for the employees and what was right for the company. You might want to look into this before we loose more.

    Pros

    a lot of people who have been working here for 5+ years they definitely believe of promoting within the company when they can. Company is growing its market more east coast

    Cons

    6 month until you can obtain vacation time/personal time is annoying. They don't use to current IT programs compared to other employers I've worked for ( 2 other employers within 10 years) but it gets the job done.

    Pros

    Consistent hours and OT every week. Weekly pay. Benefits

    Cons

    Working outside all day. Dirty work cleaning all the construction equipment. They'll fire you for anything. Not the best job but pays the bills. Lazy coworkers only makes your job harder.
