    Pros

    Lots of overtime avalaibe, good benifits

    Cons

    There are too many people setting in chairs behind computers and not enough people producing. That's all they care about- butts in chairs.

    Advice to Management

    Get your butt up and do it yourself. Get people out of chairs and off their cell oh ones and make them work.

    I worked at VT Industries (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Well established company with over 50 years history. A manufacturing leader in laminate countertops and architectural wood doors.

    Cons

    Too many management changes in the stone division. Lack of long-term goals and vision to fill needs of stone customers.

    Advice to Management

    If VT wants to remain in the stone industry, they will need to base product offerings off customer and market needs instead of trying to develop expensive new products when customers haven't shown a need.

    I have been working at VT Industries full-time

    Pros

    Growing fast in door division. Lots of overtime. Great health benefits at a reasonable price.

    Cons

    Horrible communication. Too many chief and no one knowing what is going on. Too many orders dropped and expectations of "Do It" even if you have to work every Saturday. The Founder can be found on UTube in an interview 11 years ago stating how they are a family company. My how things have changed under his son. Profits is All that is important. Family and employee growth is NOT important. Supervisors are [adding their pockets with bonuses and production is breaking their backs to make it happen and do not get rewarded, instead they have reached the top of their pay-grade and can not get a raise except a possible slight cost of living raise every 2 or 3 years. Shame on your greedy selves VT!

    Advice to Management

    Stop assuming how you did it before in regards to production flow of product will work now that your sales have doubled. You have forgotten your greatest asset in your key production personel. Stop assuming you know it all and LISTEN!

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

    Pros

    Paid well, there is lost of overtime. If you are inclined to work 6 days a week, this is a good place to end up.

    Cons

    No job security, they are willing to terminate your employment only on their personal feelings, it doesn't matter how well you do your job.

    Advice to Management

    Management is totally focused on Kaizen, and efficiency, their treatment of their employees is deplorable, they should turn their attention to Covey & try to create an environment where you can not only do your best work, but be the type of employer that you want to give your best to.
