A pretty good starter company
OTR Driver (Former Employee), De Pere, WIJune 2, 2013
Pros: responsive driver managers and front-office staff; improved equipment
Cons: non-standard training; not enough stress on important otr factors
WEL Companies is a pretty good place for new OTR drivers to start their careers. As long as a driver understands the pitfalls of being "low man on the totem pole," s/he will be successful. Go into the job with realistic expectations and don't listen to the bad-mouthing that goes on in this industry. WEL's training program could be more formal, including – more... driver evaluation, and there is a great need for standardization; for example, a driver can be trained using paper logs but be assigned a truck that has electronic logs. The company has undergone significant changes in the past calendar year and hopefully, WEL Companies will continue to improve. – less

A busy and semi chaotic workplace.
IT Staff (Current Employee), De Pere, WIMay 27, 2013
Pros: i can usually take my lunch whenever i want. my schedule is pretty flexible.
Cons: communication between departments, including my department needs to improve.
When I get to work, there is sometimes issues with users' computers. I perform basic troubleshooting and let the user know if I can fix the issue or if it needs to be addressed by a specialist. After they arrive and can take over, I usually end up writing reports or working on trying to come up with ways to make the end user work less harder and push – more... towards more automation.
I continue to learn new tricks of the trade, ways to do things cheaper without sacrificing the goal or project at hand.
The hardest part of the job is having managers and users from different departments come directly to you instead of being semi isolated from the end user. When working on a big project, it's nice not to be distracted. The most enjoyable part of the job is things I have learned along the way, teaching myself new products and features that I didn't know before. I also value the friendships I've built with some of my fellow co-workers. – less
