    I worked at Trussway full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Regular pay, usually on time

    Cons

    Sweatshop mentality, caters to Spanish speaking personnel without accountability for actions, cultural lack of leadership from the top down

    Advice to Management

    Conduct a clean sweep and get real leadership in place. Hire capable leadership. Hold everyone accountable for their actions not only non Spanish speaking personnel.

    I worked at Trussway full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    This company has always been about the people, and there are still some great people working there.

    Cons

    While the leadership will give lip service to "its all about the people", their actions tend to not ring as true.

    I have been working at Trussway (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    strong employees that work hard and care about the company name and rep, very tight and loyal

    Cons

    Management is out of touch and every week is something new. we used to have people who cared as much as we did, but it is like the people who built the company are not important, no one is happy it seems. Everything is about making money or cutting costs now but corporate keeps spending money and adding more people who don't know what a truss is, and more importantly they don't know how to treat a good person who works hard and has pride.

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within and know there are people that are not just here for a paycheck but have cared about this company for many years who actually stay as long as it takes to get it right, not pack up at 4 o'clock like corporate does.

    I have been working at Trussway full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The managers work with you and genuinely want you to succeed. There is a large sold backlog so there is plenty of work and job security. There is overtime available if wanted.

    Cons

    The bonus system is hard to understand and hard to hit. The raises aren't that big and they are far between.

    Pros

    They pay well & you can get overtime

    Cons

    Any employee who is competent will quickly be overloaded with too much work, & instructed to work as much OT as needed to finish the job. You will later be criticized for your excessive OT.

    Advice to Management

    Identify & replace your your non-talented managers. Understand that the current metrics system does not give you a complete picture of the current situation.

  8. "I worked there for over a year and they is no growth in the company. They Hire Management and supervisors from outside"
