Unprofessional Maintenance Manager and Incompetent Lead
Maintenance Tech (Former Employee) – Stockton, CA – October 27, 2016
disorganized maintenance department..Unprofessional maintenance manager..Incompetent maintenance lead..no teamwork, no cooperation..Ask for help and brought out your concern for daily meetings, no actions from manager and lead. They don't have ears and blind folded. You do everything to keep equipment running and fixing issues every single day. After all they stabbed your back.
Sales (Current Employee) – Riverside, CA – July 7, 2016
Been there for a while and have seen the culture devolve from when I started. Can't speak for the other branches but the Riverside branch is full of nepotism and cronyism (old boys network). Not for women at all! Borderline sexism.
Fun work place with supportive management. Not all about the numbers but how you personally grow and develop. It's important to them that you like what you do. They don't want unhappy employees. Very generous in every way! Unfortunately, my branch will be moving to West Chicago in approximately one year. I am not sure what my future holds so I need to keep my options open.
Small company grew quickly to leading manufacturer of building products
Advertising Manager (Former Employee) – Pleasanton, CA – November 1, 2015
Early years were challenging in convincing management to invest a reasonable percentage of capital in adverting and sales promotion. I learned the importance of building allies within management to gain support for proposals. Excellent team spirit among co-workers. The most enjoyable part of the job was interacting with customers, sales force, and vendors to accomplish mutual goals.Hardest part of the job came after management changes following death of VP Marketing who had hired me. New manager was not as open and supportive and damaged morale in the marketing department.
Family oriented atmosphere with ability making work duties enjoyable.
Trimmer/Finisher (Former Employee) – Baltimore, MD – June 4, 2014
Productive learning environment with opportunity for versatility. Activity-filled day, constant performance of duties as trimmer/finisher with little downtime in between. Three to four three men crews functioning as lamination techs, completing lamination tasks of two halves of product every 40 minutes, prepared for trimming to specified dimensions using power tools with steady workload for trimming function. Acquired hand/eye coordination at rapid pace meeting high demand for trim work completion. Learned independent ability of blueprint dynamics, self-management, meeting crucial deadlines, quality assurance as demanded by DOT. Firm management personnel, yet easy going, attentive to personnel needs and satisfactory completion of responsibilities. Family oriented atmosphere with strong employee unity, streaming over into outside personal life. Hardest part of the day is bundling procedures preparing for shipment. Most enjoyable part of the job was seeing the completed product loaded for delivery with satisfying stamp of approval of finished product.
Company bonuses, showing satisfaction with worker performance, often company funded outings, displaying employee appreciation, adequate yearly raises consistent with quality of work.
Slow times during winter months; returned product due to damage during installation.
Truss Specialist / Branch 24 Columbus (Former Employee) – Eastern US – January 9, 2014
after almost 3 months of interviews and testing/checks, I was hired a a truss specialist. I then underwent rigorous training for their system of business. After all of this time and money invested I was abruptly terminated after 120 days of employment. When I asked for the reason, their reply was "not a good fit for the company". One would think that with the arduous vetting process and training involved, they would have warned me about my "fit" into the company profile.
Inventory (Former Employee) – McKinney, TX – April 11, 2013
From a former employee, SST was a really good company to work for. Good benefits and good management. This company paid for my college education. As long as you were moving forward in your education, they paid for the ride.
