    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.

    Pros

    Solid Company
    Family Owned
    They actually have a pension plan so if you plan to spend your life there, at the end you can retire

    Cons

    Horrible work environment, everyone is grim.
    Using 30 year drafting software
    No advancement

    Leave the dark ages and upgrade

    Pros

    They give you raises giving your time there, cost of living, and if you move up from getting more Welding Certifications

    Cons

    They may switch there Supervisors around over all crews and they will watch you hard. HR really doesn't do give into helping the employees against the company because of the close net of them all in a small town.

    Advice to Management

    Some should work on people skills and not treat mostly everyone like there trying to get over on the company.

    Pros

    Some time the shift will be over

    Cons

    Upper management, salary, lack of tools to complete your job, lack of communication from management to employees, lack of training, mandatory overtime, no truth in what they tell you ( several times they tell you one thing then turn around and do the opposite)

    Advice to Management

    Go in there and gut the current management team, bring in new leaders

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

    Pros

    Amazing health insurance with medical, dental, and vision and a reasonable pay. Can move up in the company if you work and stay there for at least 2 years. If you show up every work day and do your job you can max your pay out in a year and 8 months.

    Cons

    Short handed at times and it makes the jobs more difficult but that's factory work for you. A lot of new people quit. Maintenance usually doesn't listen to employees about how they do their jobs efficiently. They do what is cheapest (usually) and easiest on them.

    Advice to Management

    Maintenance needs to listen to employees about how things operate and how they use their equipment before installing/changing things. The point is to keep things as efficiently as is was before the install/change and not make it so inconvenient to use the equipment that you just deal without it. The people that do the jobs every day can come up with good ideas about how to improve their job and make their environment better, listen and if it is a valid idea write it down and emplament it at a good time. You might increase production and/or decrease the turn over rate for that specific job.
