Honesty the best trucking job i've had.. Hourly pay at a good rate.. Laid back, on your own.. Would still be there if i hadn't moved. Would recommend to anyone who can afford the layoff months

Toxic Workplace

It is toxic from the top all the way down. Watch out when you get close to retirement. They pretend to care but don't. You will get laid off thinking you're coming back the next season and they will throw you away, even after years of service.

Pros

None

Cons

Everything

At the end of the day it is just a job.

I liked what I did but the culture is toxic. The place was full of lazy brown nosers looking for a way to get ahead. People were backstabbing and manipulative to the point of not being worth it.

Pros

Pay - OT - Seasonal - Benefits

Cons

Long days - Drama - Toxic Culture - Lack of Accountability

Great Pay and Insurence, No life in summer

I love this job, it pays really well and the insurance is affordable. However it is a seasonal job where the hours are very long in summer, up to 16 hours everyday, sunrise to sunset. But if you don't mind working a lot and don't have a lot of responsibilities at home, I highly recommend this company.

Good workplace with some downsides

It was a good place to work as many hours as you wanted however there was some safety and health concerns that I did not like, such as open chemicals and "sketchy" equipment or walkways/stairs that looked hand made by a little kid. There are a lot of dangerous things here that you would be involved in, there is a lot of outdated equipment and machinery. Last but not least my boss at the Cheektowaga location was not the greatest you had to work extra hard to make him happy, for instance I had a couple of run-ins that seemed unsafe to do. My last day at Suite Kote was when i refused to go into a confined space (asphalt storage tank) I didn't have my proper training and knew if I told him that, that he would give me the training which would not be proper or legit, so I told him I felt claustrophobic and a half hour later I was signing lay-off forums "because he didn't have any work for me" even though he had plenty of work to be done around the facility with updates and maintenance that needed to be done by the next year, I will never apply to work here again unless it is for a different facility and it is a driving job since he is the manager of all the storage facilities in NY and the mills

Tend to favor employees

They tend to favor their employees and don't make all the rules apply to the employees equally. They also don't give warnings like most companies do before letting you go.

Use to be a great player to work for.

Very stuck in the era of getting your buddy a job regardless of there abilities. Management views everyone as easily replacable. And advancement is almost impossible if you don't know someone.

BEST place to work in the area.

I just love my job. Working at Suit Kote is the best thing to ever happen to me (career-wise). I love my co-workers, we really have a great time. Some days are slow, some days are fast. Some days are great and some are still great but not as great. My boss is exceptional and wouldn't want any other boss ever again. Lots of fun!! Apply now!

Good place to work

Good place to work for the most part. Room for advancement in some positions, understanding and suppprtive of those with families. Management could use some work.

Great team of drivers and production staff

Typical days as a driver were varied and kept you busy. Safety was always a priority and they kept their trucks in tip-top shape. They took pride in what they did and worked like a team. If you are a good driver and willing to do your best and be to work on time, they will treat you well. The owner looks out for his employees.

Pros

great benefits and outlook.

Cons

was not a year around opportunity

Family Owned company that grew quickly

Family owned company that grew quickly. Employees were given the opportunity to grow with the company and serve in several different job functions as interests changed. Company did sponsor and pay a portion to further education. Unpredictable seasons were stressful as much of the work was dependent on state/municipality funding.

Cons

Success dependant on state budget and weather.

One of the worst places to work.

Worked at sk for 15 years was a great place to work up until 2012.Since then has gone to one of the worst places to work.Health insurances is the worst out there And very expensive couldn’t afford to use it.The salesman will lie and speak poorly of the workers a lot of back stabbing.Management seems to spend their days trying to figure out either how to take more from you or make your days tougher.They call you back in mid May and lay you off end of September or beginning of October.So if you don’t have another job for the winter you’re unemployment runs out and they don’t care.So if your thinking about working at SK I hope this helped and you think really hard about it.

Pros

Pay check other than that none

Cons

No life in summer

Decent place to work.

Needs improvement with managers managing their employees. Long hours but it’s a seasonal job, so that is to be expected. Would be a better job if you were rewarded for the effort you put forth in making things run more efficiently and in a timely manner.

Fun atmosphere amazing coworkers

Working for Suit-Kote was a great experience. I really enjoyed the people I worked with. They were amazing at training and keeping the training up to date. I enjoyed the traveling that came with my job and the people I got to know along the way. They were extremely flexible with my hours. There was always work to be done but one could move at their own pace just as long as your job got done
