Good Stepping Stone
Caterpillar Incident Response - Help Desk (Former Employee) –  Schaumburg, ILOctober 6, 2018
Very high volume call center spaced help desk environment. When I was there calls over 7 minutes in length meant that you were instantly micromanaged. People are good there, but the shear volume gets to you at times. It was a good stepping stone straight out of college.
Pros
Good stepping stone. Lots of technical knowledge to be learned.
Cons
Call volume, and pay is Peoria pay...not BW Suburbs pay.

MAINTENANCE TECHNICIAN 2 (Former Employee) –  Hastings, NESeptember 14, 2018
If they would just do what they say they are going to do it would be a great company to work for. But Management are pencil pushers that don't really know what they are doing. Butt kissers are rewarded while the guys that are actually working and fixing things are being ignored. They want open communication but only if it is praising something. Promise training but don't deliver
Cons
benefits are good, but could be better

Waste of time to work for ATS
Maintenance Technician (Current Employee) –  Augusta, GASeptember 13, 2018
There is no communication with management at the Morgan location. Too many people telling you what to do when they have no idea what’s going on. They love to perform social experiments to the point that nobody wants to work there and quits. They claim to be a safe company but when it comes down to it, they’re not. You come last and management comes first. All ATS is worried about is looking good on paper. Useless training, permits for everything, etc. They complain about low productivity when management is the one causing it and the mechanics have no control or say about the situation. There are way better places to work that are not a butt kissing subcontractor like this place.
Pros
You get a golf cart!
Cons
Management.

Make it a short term goal to work here.
Planner Scheduler (Current Employee) –  Bellwood, ILAugust 25, 2018
There is a big disconnect between corporate who promises the world negotiating contracts. Then leaves workers with impossible task and vague instructions on what was committed to. Thus doming work force to failure and cut throat environment. Good place to work while looking for a job.
Pros
It is a job.
Cons
Horrible management, confusing goals that change at the customers whim.

Not for the faint of heart
Service Desk Manager (Former Employee) –  Schaumburg, ILAugust 11, 2018
The company is a factory maintenance/industrial parts repair supplier, they should stay with that. They really do not understand the meaning of "world-class" service desk delivery. You cant be partially in the IT Services industry, it takes a major commitment to be the best and ATS is split in to many directions.
It's not that they don't try, but poor management and lack of focus and direction has led them to underperform and miss SLA's on large contracts. That is recipe for disaster.
Pros
Decent pay and benefits. Nice facility/office in schaumburg.
Cons
Disengaged management and lack of overall leadership.

Large disconnect between corporate office and on-site
Emissions Repair Specialist & Team Leader (Former Employee) –  Peoria, ILJuly 31, 2018
Over all they aren't bad to work for. the people are great the pay is fair. There really isn't a lot of opportunity for career growth particularly if you're working on site. As a contract/agency company your career is heavily influenced by your customer. While ATS does annual reviews and discuss career path the company you're working for will ultimately decide your pay, raises and promotions. This makes it very hard to break out into new roles or advance in current roles.

Site Manager
Site Manager (Current Employee) –  Sweetwater, TXJuly 11, 2018
Anyone out there considering a Site Manager role with ATS should decline immediately. I will tell you from experience the Site Manager role is the most difficult role within the company. Work life balance is terrible because you're the first line manager the customer deals with daily. You're held accountable to a standard corporate personnel are not held to. ATS has a strong culture of turning over Site Managers. This is because when the customer is dissatisfied the first thing Corporate does is remove and replace the SM. This brings about poor job security. If corporate thinks the contract is in danger... remove and replace the SM. If the maintenance team takes issue with SM decisions, remove and replace the SM. You're told its your business run it how you see fit. You try to work according to the Statement of Work (SOW) but the customer will always push for more. Ask you to do things that are clearly not in the contract. When you try to enforce the contract the customer complains to your ABM (corporate representative) and he makes you give them the service. That begins the spiral of non-contractual services becoming informally part of the contract and you lose money on that billable service. It's very frustrating not to mention the loads of garbage you have to endure each day.
However, if you're in a position where you need income now I would say take the job but have a back up plan in place. Continue to do your diligent job searching while employed because getting removed as a Site Manager is not a question of "if" but "When"
I really hope this helps you make an informed
  more... decision. Please consider your options very heavily before accepting a SM role with ATS. I wish you the very best and God Speed in your job search.  less
Pros
Decent pay
Cons
No management support, out of site out of mind, double standards, job security

Ats
Maintenance Manager (Current Employee) –  Westwego, LAJune 27, 2018
ATS is an onsite maintenance crew contractor. They believe in their people and are always there when needed. Sites differ from plant to plant, area to area. Crews may be from 2 technicians to 60 depending on size of site. Work week for manager is usually 50 to 60 hours per week to keep the plant in good running order.

Industrial Maintenance Technician (Eaton) (Former Employee) –  Peoria, ILJune 26, 2018
I was requested to do jobs of higher level technicians with out the pay. Always asked to work overtime at the end of shift. Never advanced notice. The management would set impossible and unrealistic goals and make guarantees to the customers that we couldn't fulfill.
Pros
Decent pay, good benifits
Cons
terrible maqnagement
