Supportive management and staff
Field Service Technician (Former Employee) –  Bloomfield, NMJuly 22, 2018
From owners down, management was supportive and engaged. Owners visited branch often and could greet you by name. Staff was friendly with each other and also supportive with questions.

Not the best
Warehouse Worker (Former Employee) –  Farmington, NMFebruary 6, 2018
. Worked in the Farmington area. Always micromanaged and over worked. Never enough workers. Singled out if you weren't a favorite. Opinion didn't matter. Always expected more of you. You were never good enough. Pay was only 12 an hour and worked a minimum of 10 hour days 5 days a week. Management just needed some work.
Pros
Health benefits
Cons
Micromanaged, underpaid

Too many games!
Not sure what it was (Former Employee) –  Albuquerque, NMJanuary 30, 2018
I agree w/ a prior comment, owners wife managing I.T. was really uncomfortable. She lacked in management skills and failed me badly! It was RIDICULOUS! Too many games, power games, nepotism, and on and on.

Used to be a good family company
Credit Analyst (Current Employee) –  Aurora, CONovember 13, 2017
Used to be proud to be an employee but recent (3 years) changes have made it a horrible experience. IT is managed by the owners wife so she decides whats important. Accounting acts as if the owners died and they became boss. No more company wide holiday potlucks due to management worrying about productivity. No more family picnics because it's more important to remodel the main lobby. Don't talk, show up to work, repeat.
Pros
Co-workers
Cons
Management, fairness, integrity

Okay place to work.
Heavy equipment Mechanic (Former Employee) –  Aurora, CONovember 1, 2017
You will be expected to put in 50+ hours. If you don't work weekends you can, but you will be frowned upon for doing so.

They do there best but certain customer's always get their way.

The Wagner's are really good people that care about there employee's.

Challenging work. Paid training.
Field Service Technician (Current Employee) –  Windsor, COOctober 31, 2017
Wagner is an ok place to work. We at Wagner are expected to work all the time and know "everything", however the pay is low and the management is poor. There is no support from management when there is a problem with a customer. They insulate themselves from problems and expect their techs to take the blame and resolve the issue. Management also expect field techs to exceed DOT operating hours of service, but if you're caught by DOT it's your problem and management will not stand up for employees. The "old school" way of managing is not going to work any longer. There needs to be newer ideas and better ways of managing employees.
Pros
Bennifits are good.
Cons
Poor manegment and low pay.

Good safety and decent pay
Journeyman heavy equipment mechanic (Current Employee) –  Pueblo, COAugust 1, 2017
Decent pay, benefits and good job security. Company provides training to keep employees updated on new products. Safe place to work with all PPE provided. The problem with this company is they don't listen to there employees. Morale is very low in all areas of service. This is due to the numerous friends and relatives hired that cannot perform there duties.
Pros
Pay benefits
Cons
Nepotism and negative, low morale

Easy going environment
Facilities (Current Employee) –  Bloomfield, NMApril 23, 2017
I currently work for Wagner & I do enjoy it. Its true there are some crabby & arrogant co-workers. But thats anywhere you go. I mainly keep to myself & do my duties.

But my immediate supervisor & dept. manager are very laid back & trusting. They appreciate the hard work you put into your job. The owner of the company makes it a point to acknowledge everyone. No matter what your position is, he comes by and shakes hands with you.
Pros
Weekends & holidays off, good pay, benefits
Cons
Some crabby peeps, not enough OT.

Good until you resign
Former parts person (Former Employee) –  New MexicoApril 5, 2017
Worked at Wagner for 3 years, the only issue is that when someone leaves, they put you in a position you know nothing about and expect you to like it! The Drama is Way out of line but Management likes it apparently! Upper Management doesn't listen to other employees to many buddy buddy's in the workplace and people always saying " NO my problem " they complain but take No action to afraid to speak up and if you resign,they immediately escort you off the property
Pros
Decent pay and benefits, Great parts dept, and Most co workers are friendly
Cons
Drama, being put where you shouldnt, Very Bad Attitudes not One Profesional team thats their moto
