Management is counterproductive
Manager (Current Employee) –  Carrollton, TXNovember 29, 2017
Management is counterproductive, and they don't know accountability if it hit them in the face. They constantly throw their lower level employees under the bus, and constantly look to blame other people for their failures. Most of upper management are "Yes Men"

Extremely poor leadership. No vision and very unprofessional management.
Corporate Manager (Former Employee) –  Carrollton, TXNovember 9, 2017
Many locations have very high turnover and qualified employees are difficult to locate. Consequently, there was a real focus focused on the improvement of recruitment, selection, onboarding and retention. The majority of the issues identified as having a significant impact have went unaddressed. Senior management is more interested in playing the "blame game" instead of actually supporting the needed changes to the processes and personnel.
Pros
Well posistioned in a niche market with high growth potential.
Cons
Lack of engagement by senior management. No leadership

Good place to work

It is a good place to work although there is little room for advancement. Most of the time you are on pins and needles worried about your job security.

Vacation
Cons
Some poor managers- Far too many rules to get you fired

Hurry up and wait.
Senior Technician (Current Employee) –  Phoenix, AZAugust 25, 2017
Depending on your position the pay ranges from terrible to ok. Benefits are ok and there is almost too much vacation. This is due to there being an understaffing issue in recent years and there aren't enough people to cover the shifts of the people that are out. As well corporate is really preachy about everything but when you request a requisition for things needed for the job you are told it's not in the budget and to just make do without.
Pros
Mostly indoors.
Cons
Very dirty, potentially sharp learning curve.

Stressful but with opportunity
Manager (Current Employee) –  VariousJuly 20, 2017
There are stressors, not unlike any job. Specifically on the distribution center side of the business. Lots of opportunity for advancement, but central ELS management suffers from lack of ownership and decisiveness, crippling the progress of business. Word to the wise for any business entity is to always be prepared for success. When you are always looking for failure traps, success will surely come up and bite you in the rear...the biggest failure trap of all.

Great place to work
Site Manager (Current Employee) –  Reno, NVMay 31, 2017
ELS employees have a lot of opportunities available to them whether it is training for new positons, going to help on start-ups(Go teams), management(field development program). If you show that you would like to advance with the company there are plenty of opportunities.
There is currently a lot of change within the company as we are growing so flexibility and a desire to be part of the solution is a must.

Great place to work for those that have a good work ethic
Employee (Current Employee) –  United StatesMay 26, 2017
If you're a mechanic or technician who genuinely believes safety is the most important thing you do ─ every day. If you are trustworthy, honest, and on-time. You’ll like it here. What I like about this place is they deliver and expect quality - some call it old school work ethic.
Pros
Opportunities for rapid growth

Maintenance Manager (Current Employee) –  Redlands, CAMay 25, 2017
I've been onboard going on 3 months and have personally witnessed all positives up to this point. This includes promotions for hourly and salaried employees, formalized computer based and hands-on training just to name a few. It provides a comprehensive benefits package as well. The company culture has a family vibe that seeks that same culture throughout its remote sites. The sky is the limit with this company for those that put in the work.
Pros
Culture, compensation, training, opportunities, work life balance, employee recognition
Cons
None at this time

Do not work for this company. You will regret it.
Junior Technician (Former Employee) –  Romulus, MIApril 24, 2017
If you are looking for an entry position within the industrial maintenance field this is an ok job to cut your teeth on. If you already have experience in industrial maintenance stay away from this company! They will NEVER pay you what your worth. There are never any chances for promotion. The corporate office will lie to your face. Just one example, I was told by the CEO when he came to our site that they would not be cutting our hourly pay rates. They lied and tock away all holiday pay. That was a 2.5% hit to our hourly pay. The company never gives you an actual raise. They might give you what they call a "of cost of living raise." Which only amounts to maybe an extra $0.30 an hour. The company always tries to give you "shiny" bobbles of junk to buy their employees off and act like it's a big deal. When in fact it's a cheap pierce of junk that cost them hardly anything. Plus you get an even bigger slap in the face if you work at the Detroit, MI (DTW) airport. This is ELS's only union site. The union is Local 1102 and they are a bunch of thiefs. They have repeatedly stood beside management and agreed with then when they have taken more and more from the employees (i.e. pay cuts and loose of benafits). 1102 also takes a $7.00 an hour cut of your hourly pay rate to cover benafits and retirement. But when you run the numbers the cost never equals out to what your paying. 1102 takes more then they need to. Plus their "retirement plan" makes no senses. We actually lost money last year when everyone else made very large profits on their retirements. Plus 1102 will never answer the  more... question if the retirement plan is a pension or 491K. So to sum things up, do not work for this company.  less
Pros
Maybe the work schedule
Cons
Pay rates, lied to by corporate, no holiday pay, no promotions, no real training, shady union, company makes millions while employees struggle to make ends meet

Poor Leadership and Culture
Sr. Recruiter (Current Employee) –  Carrollton, TXMarch 31, 2017
This company leaves plenty to be desired in all areas. Tenure and nepotism drive the culture. Logic and productivity elude leadership. Management is antagonistic and counterproductive. There is zero accountability for leadership and they take pride in blaming their direct reports for their marginal performance/knowledge and throwing each other under the bus.
Pros
It's a job, not a career.
Cons
Power-struck management mentalities, healthcare, pay, and employees are treated like children

Worked outdoors and fast-paced and hazardous environment

Worst job I ever had!!!!
Manual encoder (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GaFebruary 14, 2017
I worked on the international side, the manager, supervisor, and lead are very unprofessional. Employees are rude and do not get disciplined for rude behavior. The job does not pay enough to put up with the headache. Do yourself a favor and look elsewhere!!!
Pros
Weekly pay.
Cons
Everything else.

Not a good place to work

Too much unrelated training totally a waste of time
Management is one sided and bias to site managers and supervisors. It is more of a cleaning job than a maintenance job.
