company is great if you don't want to move up in the ranks, family and friends have secured any and all advancement of higher ups. plan on working long hours and weekends to make deadlines that are outlandish. company hires paroles who cant complain and if they do they are fired immediately

Management is horrible, no idea about process improvement. Told to keep all ideas to yourself. Ran by the owner and his kids. Put used parts on vehicles to make them look new. VP of production is a dictator, and has no leadership ability or communication skills. They treat employees like an expendable commodity. Not a good place to work at all.
Great place to learn a great deal, but not somewhere you'd want to make a career.

I learned a whole lot about the diesel and transit field in the time I was here, I really enjoyed working here. My supervisor was really cool, understanding, and did not hesitate to help when I had a question or wasn't sure how to do something. We'd get little perks here and there like safety meetings every Wednesday with free donuts. Incentives for safe working, luncheons, paid holidays. However, it is really sad once you talk to some of the guys that have been there a good while, and realize they are making what I would consider to be minimum wage for their line of work. Especially because a lot of those guys actually know what they're doing and are good at it, however they made mistakes in the past that have caused them to have negative records (criminal, DUI...) and because of that they can't just find work anywhere. It's this very reason a lot of them have chosen to stay working there and the company sadly takes advantage of that and does not compensate them what they really deserve. I worked with some really talented people who all shared the same background. Anyone else who had a choice to leave, did leave. Including myself. It wasn't what I did that I didn't like, even though I did some of the dirtiest work they had to offer. It was the fact that I had been there over a year and when I asked for a raise, they gave me $0.25.. and I KNEW I deserved more because my supervisor and even some supervisors that weren't MY supervisors told me I was worth more than that. So I had to come to the realization that, the longer I stayed here, the more time I wasted I could have beenmore... working hard elsewhere where they would compensate me for what I deserve. If it wasn't for this, I would happily still be working there.less
Great place to start if one is looking to get there foot in the door for there trade.

Very diverse working atmosphere. One day you may be doing what you were hired to do and another day something that isn't your job title. Most coworkers are fun and enjoyable to be around with a great sense of humor
someone can learn a lot of different trades.
one might get frustrated becuase they'll do work outside of there job title.
