Laid back environment, wonderful company
Coordinator (Former Employee), Houston, TXSeptember 3, 2013
Pros: large company, great benefits but with a small company atmosphere
Cons: changes to processes not always tested first
I absolutely loved working for Stewart & Stevenson. In the service division, the technicians were all supportive of the office staff and vice versa, we worked as a team. Management did not bother you, but let you do your job, however, they were always there if needed. The company always accommodated a personal issue. The hardest part of the job was – more... learning the technical information, but again, management helped you when needed. – less

Field Service
General Shop Technician (Current Employee), Houston TexasJuly 28, 2013
Pros: work on many different pieces of equipment
Cons: only on job training, no progression, work slow
At any moment, could go anywhere and work on any piece of equipment that is made by stewart and stevenson petroleum div.
Learned how to work independently in the field with customers on location, service truck, blackberry,laptop, and credit card. Managers expect 24/7 availability and to go out without question, the hardest part is planning vacations, – more... dinners, and social life in general. Most enjoyable part is the independence. – less

a 110 year company that must have touched a lot of people
Production Planner / Buyer (Former Employee), Houston, TexasJanuary 18, 2013
Pros: the workers, insurance, 401k and work for a company that was once highly respected.
Cons: the constant lay offs avg. every three years. this year we went from 600 to 180.
No one is breathing down your back, because everyone is putting out fires.
They have a nice System JD. Edwards. But they are not set up internally to run a detailed manufacturing company.
Eng. / Manufacturing BOM's are not structured. Manufacturing Prints are not accurate. the assy will revise the prints and red line them to make sure if they have to – more... produce this assy next time, they have the accurate information. some of the managers have been with the company for years, thier expierence and skills have been through the years they have been there, But not through Education.
Some things are run like they were runned back in the 80's. You see some decision making as how it use to be a long time ago.
I didn't learn anything new if anything I feel I hinder my skills for they were not being used to it's greatest abilities.
Co workers are very nice, very hard workers trying to compensate for not having some of the tools, that could make their job easier.
The hardest part of the job, knowing it could be better.
The most enjoyable part of the job is working with the co-workers
really taking pride on what they do. – less
