Great place to work if you can get in good with the "good ole boy" network. Place would run so much better if they broke that up and injected new blood or moved up more experienced employees to a management position.
Fab Tech II (Former Employee) – Ocala, FL – February 19, 2017
E ONE is an excellent company to work with. They have a good environment to work and everyone knows their responsibility and what to expect. Good safety training and opportunity for advancement. They build an excellent product and expect the same from their employees.
Very good support and benefits
Gets a little uncomfortable, for working on hot days.
Manufacturing Technician II (Current Employee) – Ocala, FL – December 22, 2016
Be prepared to dedicate your life to this company. Monday thru Thursday is not your typical week you will be working Fridays and some Saturdays. Short brakes and unrealistic production goals. On the bright side building fire trucks is rewarding. Management is not the best but that's hard to find anywhere.
Worst engineering I have ever experienced at a manufacturing facility, a Tech 1 letting the engineers know what changes need to be made to get the correct product. Supervisor asking a Tech 1 when parts are due in, more interested in who may try to leave 30 seconds early for breaks. Lead Tech having a fork lift driver move a vehicle before it is completed, same vehicle moved in and out of the work area up to several times a day. Extremely unorganized, vehicles are supposed to move approximately every 5 hours. Some weeks you stand around, a day or two, waiting for the next vehicle. Not given the tools needed to do the job, even after several attempts throughout a year. Observed two temporary individuals get hired on, one after a harassment incident was reported the second one after a threat of violence was reported. Don't let the four day work week mean anything to you, mandatory Fridays are called every week whether they end up canceling it or not. If it is cancelled it is not done until 10 minutes before you leave work on Thursday so you are never able to make plans for your three day weekend. The pay is nothing to brag about, only good for Marion County residents.
if working in incredibly hot and dirty conditions is what you love then this job is for you. Yeah the pay is good but the mandatory overtime working in purgatory makes this place absolutely a horrid place to work.
A typical day involved me delivering different fire truck parts around the company property. I learned how to haul parts around using a trailer hitch. The management were very professional and treated everyone as though they were friends and not as though they were our bosses. The hardest part of the job was the humidity, other than that everything wasn't difficult at all. I enjoyed the people i worked with, they were fun and funny to work around.

Finisher (Former Employee) – Ocala, FL – March 15, 2014
A typical day by not being able to get out the production on time. What I have learned is to do your work and stay out of people's business. Management is fair. My co-workers are hard workers like myself. The hardest part of the job is having to re-do what someone else has messed up. The most enjoyable part of the job is having a good production day at work keeping the boss happy.
Over all a good company to work for. I enjoyed the people I worked with. Hr was helpful with any questions I had when I started. Interview was your basic business questions and a few get to know you questions, but for the most part they just want to see how well you deal with each manager in each department. I would have to say that the lack of training and no real direction on what they wanted to achieve with this position was supper frustrating . My days were spent doing quotes and speaking with vendors and replying to emails. More or less I was a drop point for other sales guys to send there equipment quote request too. Needles to say you work hard and make no commission on your sales and make too little pay.
Great benefits no weekends
poor management, low pay, poor training and lack of direction
rigger (Former Employee) – Ocala, FL – July 24, 2013
a day at work was enjoyable getting my tools ready, going to the assigned truck etc.. I learned a lot of good things like the functions & purpose of the equipment we install in the vehicle's knowing that makes you do it with more pride!!! I had some real good supervisors, crew leaders, & co- workers they were always there to answer any question or help me with my project we had a good team, the hardest part of my job was getting into a small place, & the most enjoyable was completing the vehicle & being proud you helped built something so important!
