Enjoyed working at LoJack Corp very much. Challenging and interesting work. Never bored and outstanding co-workers.
Senior Counsel (Former Employee) – Canton, MA – July 11, 2016
Challenging and interesting work. Never bored. Friendly and hardworking co-workers who are passionate about their work and the company. Hard working, knowledgeable and approachable management. Hardest part of the job were the employee cut-backs and seeing a lot of good people leave. Most enjoyable part of the job were the missing person and stolen vehicle recoveries that the company's products assisted in.
CSR (Former Employee) – Canton MA – November 24, 2015
Management sucks. No feedback. The recruiting agency is just as bad. No communication between employees and management. No job security, micromanagement, supervisors are snakes and a** kissers. Worst experience ever. Unprofessional and inconsiderate company. Pay raises on freeze no bonuses and they're crumbling. High turnover rate.
Morning Lead (Former Employee) – Palmdale, CA – June 29, 2015
A good learning experience with our customer, employees and our procedures. My manager always had an open door policy and was approachable for any questions and concerns. Co-workers were always willing to learn and always willing to be open to new ideas. The hardest part of my job was the working schedule, however, with the reorganization, our work schedules were more feasible for every employee working for the organization.
Quality Assurance Specialist (Former Employee) – worked out of home – May 18, 2015
Working for Lojack was rewarding in many ways. I got along well with most of my co-workers over the 15 year employment I spent with Lojack. I had a company vehicle to perform my inspections. I was the Quality Assurance Inspector for South L.A. Co. and all of Orange Co.
Senior Field Specialist (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – May 17, 2015
Great company, management team and other employees are very easy to get along with. Pretty much a self managed job. A job in which you deal directly with customer on the installation of the product in which they purchase.
Field Operations Manager/NAIM (Current Employee) – Canton, MA – May 1, 2015
LoJack as been a great place to gain experience by wearing many hats within the roles I have held. I have had many additional responsibilities that were unrelated to my core role throughout my tenure with the company. The people are the best part of the organization, they have very dedicated employees who really care about how they impact the company.
Lack of foresight in how decisions will deter top talent from job seeking elsewhere
Several different management positions (Former Employee) – Westwood, MA – March 28, 2015
LoJack has been a part of Massachusetts for 25 years and is a great local company to work for. It provides a unique opportunity to make an impact and make a difference. Some of the challenges are typical- updating systems and processes that are a little outdated, but otherwise the brand is one of the most recognized in the US and continues to have a 90% recovery of stolen vehicles.
Basically you drive to locations provided via an online platform. Appointments can be set with short notice as a few hours or as long as a few days.
Job is to install electronic devices on various types of vehicles via a precise set of standards. Documentation of installation is imperative.
The management in this company is probably the biggest weakness.
Pay is typically $16/hr plus benefits as an employ or $30 per vehicle as a contractor or $60 per vehicle as a territory manager.
The worst part is the scheduling, scheduling platform and redundant documentation per each install.
So, typically you may have 4 cars in a given day, sometimes none other times 8 or more. You must acknowledge each job, then acknowledge in route to the job, then acknowledge arrival to the job, then find the vehicle (if dealer), then document the install, perform the installation under various conditions (heat, rain or other), test the installation, Document various steps with photo's, complete documentation and close the job. The job may take 15 minutes, but everything else can add 30 minutes.
The best part of the job is you are on your own and you can pretty much work at your pace.
I learned where LoJack gets installed on vehicles.
Some of the people are totally awesome and great to be around.
I was operating as a contractor under another company.
Customer Service Representative I (Current Employee) – Canton, MA – February 20, 2015
LoJack WAS great to work for when I had babysitting issues and needed some flexibility. Then the scheduling manager left and all heck broke loose. And now they've taken away our bonuses, 401k matching, and no more merit raises. I'm tired of watching the rich get richer by taking food off my kids plates.
work from home once a week
they took our financial benefits away to make rich investors happy
Marketing Communications Manager (Former Employee) – Westwood, MA – January 21, 2015
Local company with an outstanding product with timeless technology. The co-workers that I met whiles working at LoJack have become life long friends. Truely great people have built this company into what it is today. Working at LoJack I was able to learn and build experience in all areas of Marketing.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Palmdale, CA – September 3, 2014
A typical day at California Federal Bank, helping customers with all of there telephone banking needs. Management was great my team leader was very hands on and he loved his team, my co-workers were very helpful and understanding, the hardest part of the job was not able to reverse fees for customers as much, the most enjoyable part of my job was the people I work with, it was a joy coming to work every day.
I.T. (Former Employee) – Canton, MA – July 22, 2014
The original LoJack was created to enhance officer safety by alerting them that the vehicle they are stopping is a stolen vehicle. It was created before there were cross-state databases and cameras in police cars. It was also found that the RF signal that an activated device would emit could be found in shipping containers, garages, and apartments, making it better than GPS at closing that 100 yards. The company went through a number of challenges that leaves it now trying to re-invent itself and become nationwide, which it currently is not. If you are attached to the legacy projects they tend to leave you there and hire in new talent.
