Instalation Mechanic (Current Employee) –  Colorado Springs, CONovember 10, 2017
easy job, can get stressful at times, team leads and management are not the best, but are tolerable. If you show up and do your job, you can get by, but not much space for promotion or advancment.
Cons
They care more about what they want then what you want.

Nice shop
Installation Technician (Former Employee) –  Bartlett, ILAugust 19, 2017
The shop is well lit. The supervisors have a revolving door it seems like. Always a new lead or supervisor then they get demoted. Pay was so so. Good bonus program if the supervisor doesn't swindle it away. Track your build hours or get burnt. Overall a decent job with consistent hours
Pros
Annual bonus, rewarding work
Cons
Strange culture, nepotism

Great benefits, plenty of overtime if desired but too much favoritism
Quality Inspector (Former Employee) –  Kansas City, MOJuly 11, 2017
Great benefits but too much favoritism in all departments. Great lack of basic skills in production department on everyday tasks and management not interested in training personnel to build a quality product the first time. Work is fast-paced and interesting due to variety of builds. There is plenty of overtime if wanted during peak season. Overall not a bad place to work but you do have to deal with the seasonal elements from vehicles constantly being driven in and out of the shop.
Pros
Benefits, healthcare, company lunches
Cons
Favoritism by supervisors and management

Installer/Assembler (Former Employee) –  Roanoke, INDecember 31, 2016
Good place if it is your career, if not, not a bad stepping stone to the next job. Almost guaranteed overtime, but the hours do take a lot away from normal everyday activities.

good and bad job at the same time
QA Inspector (Former Employee) –  Bartlett, ILSeptember 22, 2016
Overall very good company, like any other job hard work pays off.
Read most of the reviews on here and there right. Management can be hard on you yet the go to guy if needed. All supervisors are long time employees so they do know what they are doing. There will be times they don't know build specs but that Isnt on them, they just get instruction from the higher up and its always changing per customers request.

You do have to work like any job, if your too slow to keep up with production chances are you will be let go. I seen plenty off people come and go some with in few days to there 90 days. If work is slow as in work orders chances are they might let some people go.

Raises depends on how you are as a worker, the hardest working ones that are willing to do things and more are the ones that get the good raise. so if you get .10 cents step up.

I started as a porter as the position i applied for was full and was offered this till a opening popped up, but it was to simple for me so i applied myself and worked with my supervisors in the inspection side helping out and learning. Year later company made a inspection position for me. On my 3rd year i was sadly let go.
Pros
great company, can move up if you apply yourself, free lunches some times, quarterly lunch parties, great benifits
Cons
Drop rate in employee can be high due to poor performance or budget cuts.

Its a job, but one you will grow to hate , basicly no chance for raises of higher than 10ยข and that is if you can handle the unorginized work load .
Safty corridnation (Current Employee) –  SimpsonvilleMay 31, 2016
Typical day at work you get a work order with a amount of hours on it to be finished, almost always impossible to accomplish, especially when you have to wait for parts and to be inspected before your time is out , and it's held against you if not finished on time!
Pros
30 min lunch and two 10 min breaks per 10 hour shifts
Cons
30 min lunch and two 10 min breaks per 10 hour shifts

Would not recommend
Shop (Former Employee) –  IllinoisApril 18, 2016
The management team takes their queues from the parent company and they have very little clue of how things are or should be. If they did then they would know they should stay out of the day to day and stick to seeing numbers which the company is not making so far the last almost year. Lots of temp workers that are given very little direction and then expected to perform and when they don't it's see you later and get them a new temp to try and make it work.

Managers are long time employees with no management skills just have been there the longest so they are promoted. So many instances of problems and guys walking out the door quitting because of the managers but nothing is done to reprimand the manager for being a bad manager just keep bringing in more temps and let them figure it out.
Pros
It's a job
Cons
Low pay, poor leadership, no communication, no training, no direction, if you aren't part of the but kiss group you won't advance

Porter, pre-assembler and parts (Former Employee) –  Kansas City, MONovember 2, 2015
I started as a commercial porter because of my commercial drivers license, driving all vehicles from pick ups to peterbilt's, kenworth and others. I was moved to pre-assembly and then back to Porter due to need. A short time later I was moved to parts where I pulled parts carts and placed materials in vehicles as they were being prepared for building.
Pros
job security
Cons
no room for advancement

Pros

Work pacing is critical
Installation Technician (Current Employee) –  Colorado SpringsJune 14, 2015
ATG is an upfitter of trucks for various purposes.
From work trucks for fleet usage to personal upgrades to individual customers' trucks, you will do it all at ATG. The key concepts at this company are to make an installation work for the customer's needs, and to do it within the time that sales has specified.
The only real issue is that the sales staff don't know anything about being a mechanic.
The management team is outstanding. Leadership styles vary slightly, but are still highly effective.

The staff at ATG is a good crew, very knowledgable, and most have been employed there for several years, and some have been there for over a decade.

The company has a very good safety track record, due to their very sophisticated and detailed safety program. Members of both the staff and the management team voluntarily keep an eye out for safety measures to implement, using a highly proactive approach to guarantee employee safety, with safety reviews, monthly safety meetings, and taking suggestions from staff to implement further safety protocols. This company takes employee safety very seriously.

The hardest part of the job is the efficiency balance, offset by a lack of standardized practice and quality control. Employees must decide for themselves when a job is "good enough". The lack of standardized practice makes it impossible to train new hires to meet a standard of review. Other locations will turn out the same product in visibly differing ways, causing more warranty work to be done by certain locations, causing an undercut to company profitability, and an undercut
  more... to employee efficiency ratings.

The most enjoyable part of the job is the variety of work that you will perform. You will do everything from basic to semi-advanced mechanical work; basic body work, basic electrical work, metal working, welding, fabrication of parts, measuring, cutting, and punching metal to create parts for the installations you will perform. There is literally always something constructive to do, and there is never any "busy work" to do.

Pros
Safe work environment, always busy, variety of work, good benefits, fair pay.
Cons
Sales staff, efficiency balance, lack of standardization.
