Not a good place to work
Frames (Former Employee) –  Longview, TXJuly 27, 2016
MGMT is sketchy,hr is also. Point system will get you fired. Unless you know someone up front. Unqualified supervisors and lead people, no one inside wants the job. Production supervisor is a registered offender. Take this as you will. As a company, is this the best that you can do? You fired the president and vice president, yet you promote a rso to a top job.
Pros
Not many.
Cons
To many to list.

Terrible place to work
ACCOUNTING CLERK (Former Employee) –  Longview, TXAugust 18, 2015
Capacity changed the way they make their trucks and they new product is not good quality. Customers quit ordering trucks and the company now has a reputation for a sub-par product. The parent company fired the president of Capacity and came in and gave a big pep talk to make the employees think their jobs were safe and that they cared about their people. Now people are losing their jobs right and left. The company is in serious financial trouble and laid off and fired multiple people over the past month. Don't work for this company. Your job will never be secure. Too much politics and games.

Unfortunately disappointing
Manager (Former Employee) –  LongviewJuly 30, 2015
When I first started there were glimmers of hope; the local workforce is quite diverse and full of great people. Unfortunately, the "corporate" team will run the company into the ground. Corporate management under AIG does the micromanaging only when it most inappropriate and do so with very little context or data to support their decisions. Favoritism, cronyism, politics and all the other dreds of a larger company without any of the benefits. All said, it's too bad corporate management ruins it... Capacity could be a fantastic place to work.

wouldn't recommend this place to anyone
Welder (Former Employee) –  Longview, TXJune 3, 2015
this company was bought by an investment group they had been manufacturing these trucks for 30+ yrs. when these guys came in
and said you people don't have a clue what your doing were going to fix this.
first all radios gota go
why is there a chair over there git rid of it
everything that causes any comfort gotta go
the words human resources would lead one to believe that they are there for you...nothing could be farther from the truth.
this is a horrible place to work. they adopted the "lean process" but no one knows what it means so they move everything from here to there to here to there and tell you "there now you can work twice as hard as you were before" one of there agenda is shed all skilled labor so if your a welder this is not for you unless your very unskilled then its a place to learn. I heard they have become tobacco free now so if you smoke or chew this is not for you. the condescending nature of the management which by the way changes on a daily bases well often anyway is overwhelming so if have any dignity whatsoever this is not for you they have a "point system" which will get you fired for attendance even when you are working 80 hrs a week. I gave them the star because it is required
Pros
i cant think of any
Cons
policy

Horrible Place to work
Purchasing manager (Former Employee) –  longview texasMay 21, 2015
Extremely high turnover
-Highly inexperienced managers with no training have a lot of discretion
-Poor HR practices (no escalation process, no managerial oversight, employee sensitive info not protected)
-No career path
-Arbitrary promotions and raises (not based on tenure, merit, or path. only "friends" or bedmates of managers get promoted)
-Discrimination and favoritism in work assignments (mostly white employees are the "face" of the CFPB)
-Politically-charged work environment (organizational culture is closer to a political campaign, people are hired on how they look and talk not based on skill)
-You are targeted by management if you criticize anything. Kiss your chances of advancing goodbye
Pros
Good Initial pay to attract people
Cons
Favoritism, Lack of quality leadership, Bleeding experienced staff, egoistic approach

Good job
Frame assembly (Former Employee) –  Longview, TXOctober 15, 2014
I enjoyed the work, and some of the management. The other workers were pretty cool guys, but way too much "Good ol' boy" mentality going on. Decent company to work for, just kinda sketchy with the management.

Fast pace, good people, great hours, would not mind going back
QC (Former Employee) –  Longview, TXJanuary 23, 2013
Clock in, go over paper work for the day. Getting the product that needed to be inspected. Team work. I learned the schematics of the product that the company was putting out. We were all team players when things needed to be done. Try to make sure everything got done, and that the system was updated, and e-mails were sent off. Learning something new, and meeting new people and getting their ideas on how their jobs could be quicker and better.
Pros
the hours, benefits, professionalism.
Cons
organization, communication could have been better in some cases.
