Laborer/Axials Dept #30 (Former Employee) – Statesboro, GA – January 4, 2016
Pretty much got along with majority of my co-workers, and very well with my manager. No where or department I work in I enjoyed working and along with others. The only thing hard about the job was shorting of breaks. The most enjoyable part about the occupation was making new freinds and meeting new people. I learn quiet a few thing on how the axials actually work on a trailer and its operating system. For Instants,how the height controll, controlls the air that goes into the airbags to lift the trail and keep it at the legiable height.
Laborer, Forklift Operator (Current Employee) – Danville, PA – December 27, 2015
I never know what station I will be placed in when I clock in each night. I learn every facet of trailer assembly. I enjoy my forklift manager's attitude, as well as my manager in the skirt bay. My co-workers help to keep the work environment fun and interesting. The job is labor intensive, but I enjoy being a yard jockey the most.
Assembler (Current Employee) – Brazil, IN – November 19, 2015
Come in to work get pass down done with all my work by lunch then try to find stuff to do for the next 4 or 5 hours before boss would tell me I could go home. Worked from 6 pm -330am so I had no home life. The work was easy and the people where good to work with. Management is full of good people but could run some stuff better. The hardest part of the job was the ware on the body up and down ladders all day. The people I worked with was the best part of the job.
Not a place for woman to excel, A good ole boy company.
HR and Branch Operations Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Jacksonville, FL – November 12, 2015
Company isn't up with the 21st Century. Very far behind in their technology. Woman were not treated equal and there was no room for advancement or way to excel. Because they were so far behind with technology the longer you were there the further behind you became in keeping up with current software.
My orginal Manager was the best part of the job and the only reason I stayed
My manager left, and the position was past to an individual who had NO KNOWLEDGE OF HOW TO RUN A SERVICE DEPARTMENT.
Fabrication Specialist (Current Employee) – Brazil, IN – November 4, 2015
Day to day work is deadly, you can go in one day, and possibly lose your life that day being crushed by a trailer, lose a hand in a machine, getting a leg crushed, really any possible injury. It's really filthy, people spit everywhere, its very very hot. In the winter the heaters don't even work properly. Very unsafe, and deadly working conditions.
cool bosses, okay pay, fun people
horrible insurance, huge taxes, no life outside of work
General Foreman - Product Manufacturing (Former Employee) – Jonesboro, AR – October 30, 2015
Allot of change over with supervision. Did get a pay raise but allot of change over with employees. Supervisors now not real good with working with people and if you need help they are just a selective group that will help you. rest of the time your on your own until supervision see your behind. Allot of the jobs are not being done well so allot of it has to be reworked. Allot of pushing for trailers to be complete. Very hard work with little appreciation.
Pay isn't that bad
Dirty hard work with allot of pressure and problems. Allot of management problems.

Long hours, co-workers are great. Some of the front line supervision should not be supervisors they have no supervisory skills and do not take responsibility for any of their mistakes or inability to lead.

Trailer Builder in Set-up (Former Employee) – Wayne, NE – June 26, 2015
Basicly you clock-in and they work your behind off until they say its time to go. Learned how to use various tools and how refer trailers are built. Co-workers were good people, management could use some compassion and development towards family orientation.
short breaks, heat, point system, non-family orientated
PURCHASING AGENT (Current Employee) – Statesboro, GA – May 17, 2015
I worked for the company since the plant opened. It was hard at first working for a new plant. We had to learn a great deal of new parts to purchase for the manufacturing of refrigerated trailers. It has been a challenge but with hard work we have accomplished many things over the past three years. I am glad I went through the experience of opening a new manufacturing facility. It is an experience I greatly appreciate and am proud I had the opportunity to be a part of the Great Dane family.
