Wilson, Nc - Production Technician (Current Employee) –  Wilson, NCSeptember 12, 2018
It’s a place you can advance quickly to make more money. Supervisors are usually fair and down to earth. You have to be able to multitask and work with a lil heat.
Pros
Paid lunch
Cons
The swing shifts

Long, long, long hours
Retail Sales Advisor (Current Employee) –  Orlando, FLAugust 30, 2018
If working in a store, prepare to stand for 12 hours. There is pressure from the highest level of the company to sell the company credit card, and a large portion of your performance review and advancement in the company will be based on how many people you get to apply for one.
Pros
Good money for what you do, get to meet many people
Cons
string of 12 hour days, no breaks, standing the entire time you're there, pressure to sell

Got to work on cars which was fun, was able to learn new things. Management was clueless in what they were doing. They would over work you for what they paid you.
Pros
learned new things
Cons
work place was filthy.

To much micro management
Facility Engineer (Current Employee) –  Des Moines, IAAugust 5, 2018
The general workplace culture at the plant is not what plant management says it is. Example is if you request training to help you gain knowledge for your advancement goals you are faced with budget constraints, travel restriction or maybe next year to point of you stop asking.

Productive worlplace
Material Handler (Former Employee) –  Jacksonville, FLJuly 25, 2018
Productive work place but conditions and hours are harsh. Management is terrible. Communication is terrible and they only care about their product. PTO is only available after a year until then you have to submit slips for days off and they have to be approved by manager but once approved they try to make u feel guilt.
Pros
If u like a lot hours
Cons
Work conditions vary due to temperature outside.

Great Place to Work
Purchasing Clerk (Former Employee) –  Mayodan, NCJuly 23, 2018
Wonderful atmosphere and great coworkers. Team work is a must. I learned most of the positions in the Finance department. Administrative, Billing, Purchasing, Accounts Payable. Worked mostly independently, given the ability to chose daily task to complete as long as they were within their deadline. Work as a team, need good team building skills.
Pros
Great health Care and 401K benefits

DISTRICT MANAGER TRAINEE (Former Employee) –  Portland, ORJuly 22, 2018
It's a job not a career. You will wake up early and work on cars through-out the day. Your boss will usually call you up and check on how many tires and life time alignments you sold.
Pros
Lots of work to do
Cons
You will mostly work all day without a lunch or break.
