Great Company with Advancement Opportuntiy
Recruiter (Current Employee) –  Kansas City, MOApril 5, 2016
Foley is a great company to work for! They have great benefits and they take care of their employees from both a financial and wellness standpoint. They are great about working with their employees when family situations arise and need time off or are having difficulties learning new tasks. There are systems in place to help train employees for continued growth and success within the organization. Managers have an open-door policy and are willing to talk through issues that come up with employees.
Pros
Great healthcare and benefits, tool program, PPE provided, uniforms provided, work boo reimbursement, promote from within
Cons
your success is based on your performance. No one is going to hand you a promotion

This company says they want to be a "first chioce employer"
EPG Tech (Former Employee) –  Dodge City, KsDecember 17, 2012
Mangement is very unflexable and has no tact or care for employees family life and only wants you to work. They have a terrible pay scale with no chance to get a decent raise they have given raises to employees in one lump sum and then put it in the paycheck so as to raise taxes so much that the employee only got a few hundred dollars more. This company says they have found out that cross training makes them stronger but they will send a generator tech out with no clue on how to fix a dozer, grader, or backhoe and expect you to repair it and not let the customer know you have not ever been trained on heavy equipment and they will send out a heavy equipment tech to try to fix a generator without any training so that when both techs break equipment they have to fix each others screw up. They sell services to the customer that are not geting done because they send out a lube tech to do jobs he has no idea what is involved or even how to do the job, all because some salesman in Wichita, Ks is getting the commision. This company doesn't let you get to be a master level tech because they say with the cross training you cannot be a master. The mangement thinks they own you can do whatever they want with you and will not alow you to move within the comapny. HR will tell you that for every open position you apply for (even if you make your management aware of it) you have to get permision to apply or they will not accept the application. Mangement does not stand by their employees constantly misleads them and will not answer the phone when you need them. Fellow employees are great to  more... work with and will help out with any problems due to lack of training.  less
Pros
lots of hours
Cons
health care sucks, only $0.33 a billable hour for tool reimbursement

Very hard company to work for
Sales Manager (Former Employee) –  Topeka, KSOctober 31, 2012
Extremely inflexible management. The only reward for hard work and great performance is more hard work. Company policies are so strictly adhered to that customer satisfaction and loyalty is sacrificed. An almost constant 30 to 40% employee turn over.
