Great place to work.
Written by Branch Manager (Former Employee) from Lansing, MI on August 14, 2019
MBS was a great place to work. It is family owned and they are very good people and very easy to work with. That being said the pay is below the industry standard and the equipment is old and substandard. Overall A pretty good place as the management and ownership make up for the lack of pay and poor benefits.
