    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. I'm on second shift, work four tens and the occasional eight hours on Friday

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

    Pros

    Salary was fair for the area. Company issued coveralls which saves the techs money on work apparel. Company has a cost+10% on work gear, which assists with the high prices techs are forced to pay with rising inflation

    Cons

    Salary should of been higher for the industry and experience. No direction on what needed to be done. There is no set “Utility Way” of doing things to save time on jobs which led to different managers telling you something different from one another. Work orders are extremely vague and lack description. Management was hardly on site and hard to get a hold of. Parts and materials were never checked before the job started and many times never ordered. Trucks and bodies not in order in the yard which led to moving materials around to get your job out while you are clocked in on the job. Company wants manufacture times but do nothing for the technicians or the shop for this to run smoothly. Technicians are all stressed which leads to many arguments on the floor between techs and management. Steel rack lacks supervision which leads to having to wait for steel. Techs are vocal about being disgruntled. High turn over rate.

    Advice to Management

    Put more time into work orders, descriptions and pictures on correct locations on every job. Tech shouldn’t have to wait around clocked on the job while work order is being written up. There is an overall lack of direction on jobs which leads to many questions. Technician shouldn’t be getting parts department involved locating parts and materials or ordering parts period unless informed by management to do so and then their should be time allocated to the job for this. All jobs need to be checked before the job is started for accurate parts and materials days in advance. Company needs to write up a set of Utility standards to take guessing and questions on many installs. Someone should be checking the steel rack on a daily basis to make sure it is stocked at all times. Truck and bodies should be correctly lined in the yard for efficient pull times. Management needs to be around all jobs making frequent rounds talking with techs for potential fires that could arise in the future of project. All managers need to be on the same page on all jobs and communication is used all throughout the job, upcoming jobs and completed jobs.

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits profit sharing is good consistent work with overtime opportunity and room for advancement

    Cons

    Management is a joke think that yelling at employees motivates people to work harder need to take advice from the people building the trailers

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and learn to talk to people like human beings make a decision and stick with it don't change rules to suit your needs

    Pros

    Catered food every week. Decent insurance. Paid weekly.
    Can get raises quickly if you work hard. Profit sharing is great.

    Cons

    There is a lot of layoffs. There seems like there is a lot of micromanaging going on each year. Family of foreman and bosses can promote quicker which is unfair.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the employees that build the trailers about how to make things work more fluid. Example: Welders know how to weld and do certain things that engineers don’t know how to do.
