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

    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.

    I have been working at Utility Trailer full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good pay and insurance. Great for people who don't like being home very much. Overtime is an always. Line 2 lives there!

    Cons

    No promoting unless you know someone. Upper management is a joke to say the least! They care only about how many trailers they can build. Employees do not matter! The higher you are on the management the less the handbook or rules apply!

    Advice to Management

    Take care of employees. Sinority does matter!

    Pros

    It puts you just out of reach of welfare

    Cons

    poor management, no one held accountable, rely on on few people to fix mistakes of many, no encouragement to learn or advance, communist pay scale where all are paid the same no matter what, no procedure sheets displaying proper procedure, when approaching upper management I was dismissed before being heard, to much overtime. according to reviews on this site there are a different benefit packages depending where you work

    Advice to Management

    get a grip, give clear directions on assembly, hold people accountable for their mistakes have them fix it.

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

    Pros

    I have nothing good to say about this company. I hated working here, and wouldn't recommend this place to anyone.

    Cons

    Poor management, employers don't care about their employees, too hot to work, no time off, and too far of a drive for me.

    Advice to Management

    Give employees more time off, increase the starting pay, give the employees paid lunches, and give us advancement opportunities.
