Painter (Current Employee) – Montgomery, IL – November 13, 2018
A typical day at work starts with preparing my work environment, forklifts have to be moved out of the working area to provide more space, my paint booth has be cleaned and ready for painting. I start prepping the forklifts I will be working on that are on order to go out to customers, I work closely with co-workers and management to get work coordinated and sent out in a timely manner. The hardest part is making sure that the product is painted properly and finished in a timely manner and it meets the requirements given. Customers satisfaction is the most enjoyable part of my job.
Everything (Current Employee) – MI – July 22, 2018
Alta is a growing company. Lots of new things going on. Like any growing company, there are problems along the way. The nature of the equipment business is that there are many branches, departments, and divisions. Difficult to know where to turn.

Sad depressing draining place to work .. underpaid and mistreated ... no opportunity to advance unless you are in with the big wigs ... low moral . broken promises when it comes to pay . Have received no raise in pay in the years that I have been employed. Management is complete trash and are some of the leading causes of gossip. Have seen managers verbally abuse employees with no response from HR.
GPS Support (Current Employee) – Byron Center, MI – April 15, 2018
Great company to work for! The president has created a good working culture. Any time I ask for help on something due to me being new at the company, they are always willing. They do not micro manage. You are hired to do a job and they expect you to do it.
Lunch once a week, good benefits, good pay and company
Communication lacks sometimes but no company it perfect.
Administrative Assistant/Receptionist (Current Employee) – Detroit, MI – January 10, 2018
You would think of a building in Detroit would be more diverse, well think again. Not only have their been multiple racial remarks made within my two year stay here, but management is poor. There is a lack of organization, as well as opportunities to advance within the company. The pay is higher than most places in Detroit, but is it worth the stress?
Shop (Former Employee) – Lansing, MI – October 18, 2017
They keep people in management roles that have no business being there. Change business model to accommodate someone with no technical knowledge even though the job description requires it (current hires and passed over a current employee for not having enough technical knowledge). They allow a culture of racism and bullying to exist. Not a healthy employer or environment

this job at alta was a hard job but i learned much about hi-los and how they work. a typical day i would load up my van with hi-lo parts and drive to flint everyday. the hardest part of the job was keeping up with the paperwork and dealing with trafficas i delivered.
