    I have been working at Total Safety full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    The CEO seems to be on a mission to revamp and adjust the direction of the company

    Cons

    Total Safety is unorganized, lacks diversity in management, the overall culture of the company leaves much to be desired. Total safety has a very high turnover rate.

    Advice to Management

    Please show appreciation to employees who are loyal and dedicate there time to making the company better. It's discouraging to give tirelessly and to receive a minimal reward. Practice fairness and recruit better management that is diverse and not just a perfect on paper. You need more than a "Resume"; you need a great leader who can teach.

    I worked at Total Safety full-time

    Pros

    The only pro is the people I worked with.

    Cons

    Company tries to pay you next to nothing for what you do. The VP is a joke and is very rude in correspondence to employees. For a safety company the manager tries to cut all corners to save a buck even if it means safety to his/her employees.

    I have been working at Total Safety full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Good people that are willing to train motivated individuals

    Cons

    Top level management is more concerned about profit. This ties the hands of middle management and does not allow them the resources to provide the proper tools to complete jobs in an efficient manner. Does not allow hiring managers to offer competitive pay to new hires. Not very loyal to employees (tech level).

    Advice to Management

    Top level management must understand and practice the concept of taking care of its employees and the employees will take care of the customer.

    I have been working at Total Safety full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    It's fairly easy and coworkers are generally amiable.

    Cons

    Cons are communication, and follow through.

    Advice to Management

    Make checklist to help organize tasks and Mark them off as they are tackled. Don't be afraid to say I don't know. The lack of follow through, and small pay make this job a great stepping stone. Great for beginning experience. Not really pay that you can retire on.
