    Pros

    Safe clean environment, they take safety seriously. They take complaints of sexual harassment seriously. They do everything by the book and nothing is shady or under handed. Professional atmosphere.

    Cons

    No room for advancement. Pay raises are slow to non-existent. Women definitely get paid less than men and get less promotions. Virtually all managements positions are men.

    Advice to Management

    Turn-over rate is high because you over work and under pay.

    I worked at Transtar Industries (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good industry with great potential

    Cons

    Old mind set and competes only on price rather than value.
    Software out of date requires many redundant actions and excessive personnel.
    Uses too many tempts reducing net profit.
    Permits senior employees to use inappropriate language and treatment of junior employees and tempts.
    Manages by intimidation rather than by praise.
    Very limited advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Hire managers from automotive aftermarket. Update software with one that integrates both inventory with invoicing to reduce slow, redundant procedures. Focus on increasing sales through more efficient operations, adding value and reduce trying to get all the business and focus on the profitable business.

    Pros

    Ok benefits
    Five day work week
    No weekends
    No overtime

    Cons

    Management is out of touch with modern sales practices. They sell on price alone and do not understand building value and relationships. Technology is out of date where what should take one action takes three or more, requires extra staff to do simple processes, lack of training and support to improve efficiencies. Local management believes they are unreplaceable and treat others without respect. Also, no overtime and no predicable raises.

    Advice to Management

    Bring in managers at all levels from other automotive aftermarket companies. Look for ways to bring value on the branch level. Increase prices on walk-ins and DIY's. Show your customers Why they should do business with you at your (profitable) price level. Create a company presence of business professionals to improve the quality of your service and industry.
