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

Just a part time position
cashier/ stocker (Former Employee) –  Kansas City, ksAugust 3, 2015
This job was a family friendly job, I usually worked there because they called me to come help out. I enjoyed the people and customers, but there was no future for me there.
Pros
customers remember who you are and you remember them and grew a bond together.
Cons
No chance for advancing

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.

Nice place to work
Installer (Former Employee) –  Fort Wayne, INMay 4, 2015
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.
Pros
Pay, management, coworkers
Cons
hours

Auto truck is a great company to work for. Very productive company with good benefits and room to move up in the company. Auto truck is currently growing at a rapid pace and should be a great company to work for, for many years.

Out of work, have a nice day
Installation Technician (Former Employee) –  Colorado Springs, COFebruary 9, 2015
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 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.
Pros
benefits
Cons
good ol boys club, logistics nightmare, too high of expectations

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
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
Pros
good benifits and pay
Cons
long hours not enough training

Don't work here
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.
