Work pacing is critical
Installation Technician (Current Employee), Colorado SpringsJune 14, 2015
Pros: Safe work environment, always busy, variety of work, good benefits, fair pay.
Cons: Sales staff, efficiency balance, lack of standardization.
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 – more... 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 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. – less

Nice place to work
Installer (Former Employee), Fort Wayne, INMay 4, 2015
Pros: Pay, management, coworkers
Cons: hours
Cant be afraid to get your hands dirty. You learn many things, like wiring, installation of many aftermarket parts on trucks, which tools are which and how to use them. The pay is very good. Management cares about the employees. Coworkers are fun and easygoing. Hardest part of the job is the hours. Best part is the pay.

Out of work, have a nice day
Installation Technician (Former Employee), Colorado Springs, COFebruary 9, 2015
Pros: benefits
Cons: good ol boys club, logistics nightmare, too high of expectations
I was promised full-time employment with overtime to not be a problem... the last week overtime went away, now they are sending people who are not "buddy buddy" with the foremen home early while the buddies – more... of the foremen are still collecting overtime.

the logistics are completely haywire... good luck receiving your parts for the job then get yelled at for the job not getting done.

And oh yeah if you don't learn everything in a week and work as fast as the people who managed to work there for 10 years you get yelled at for that too. – less

Productive and fun working place
Receptionist (Former Employee), Fort Worth, TXJune 23, 2014
Filing, scanning, database entries, and answering phones were a big part of the daily jobs at Auto Truck. I learned to better use time management to get the daily tasks done. The staff and managers were friendly and great to work with.

Not a great place but its tolerable
Installation Mechanic (Former Employee), Colorado Springs, COOctober 29, 2013
Pros: good benifits and pay
Cons: long hours not enough training
This place wasn't great but the pay was okay, the management is more concerned with their supervisors than workers, and the only time you get to even see a supervisor is when something goes wrong

Material Handler (Former Employee), Bartlett, ilOctober 18, 2013
Very poorly ran company, have a habit of letting employees go for no reason. When hired told them I was attending night school and even after arranging my school schedule around work. I was reprimanded and dismissed for going to school and not staying overtime even after I stayed when I could and came on Saturdays. I would not recommended working for this company.
