    Very Good Company

    Pros

    Family owned business that takes personal concern in regards to employees. Management is probably the most experienced team in the industry. Customer oriented company that revolves around great service. Would love to work with the company again if the chance ever came up. Westair in my opinion will be the premier welding supply company in the West for years to come. Customers who deal with the major suppliers do not know what service really is.

    Cons

    None that come to mind at this time.

    Pros

    Majority of the people were great. The company came from great roots and a hard working founder.

    Cons

    The President and COO changed the dynamic of the entire company and brought on unnecessary debt and confusion, he made the work environment toxic. The company also acquired a company and due to upper management not preparing properly, the divide was apparent.

    Pros

    Work schedule was easy. Sometimes free lunches. Customers made the job enjoyable.

    Cons

    Upper management like to micromanage every move you make. If you weren't part of their little click they found a way to get rid of you. The owner had no back bone. Lots of back stabbing and dishonest upper management. Tell you one thing to your face then turn around and stab you in the back. Upper management led by intimidation. Raises were based on how well you kissed butt.
