The longer you work there the less they care about you. No regular raises or reviews. You have to ask. Support staff inside office are not their priority, outside salespeople are treated the best and get all the incentives and bonuses. Not a place you want to work for the rest of your life.
Sales Manager (Former Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – September 9, 2015
Seemed like I worked very hard but was not getting the results any of us wanted. 60 hours + a week and apparently wasn't getting the job done. Values of the company were very good. Learned a lot and look forward to putting those experiences to work elsewhere.
Robert E. Morris charges a hundred-twenty an hour for maintenance services, and yet Robert E. Morris pays the maintainers sixteen an hour. The maintainers are the ones risking their lives on the road for hours on end each day regardless of road conditions. One of the maintainers in particular was still making less than seventeen an hour after six years of service. The maintenance personnel, for the most part, are a bunch of disgruntled former mechanics. Instead of providing company vehicles, you drive your own. They pay some vehicle expenses but it doesn't cover turning your personal vehicle into their work vehicle. With all of the tools and parts you are required to keep in the car, your trunk is no longer your own. You end up spending a lot more money on gas on your personal time lugging their stuff around because who wants to constantly remove, and load a hundred-fifty plus lbs worth of Robert e. Morris stuff every time you want to go food shopping. Does the vehicle allowance cover detailing your interior after months of returning from jobs with your clothes filthy of hydraulic fluid? No! Training? A joke. Evaluations? Another joke. When I was hired, they assured me no more than twenty five percent of my time would be overnight on the road. That was a not true. During my tenure there I changed my residence from part of my geographical territory to another part of the same geographical territory and they had the nerve to ask me why I didn't consult with them before moving.
