Suggestions for improvement

  • Hire more diverse employees. Make career advancement a part of the workplace. Encourage more training and education.

What I like about the company

They were slowly adapting to new technology.

What I dislike about the company

The culture was toxic. They were employees who felt free and even insisted that they were allowed to make sexist, racist and homophobic remarks. There was no encouragement to learn new skills or to advance.

Suggestions for improvement

  • management not playing favorites. Don't overpay less experienced or underqualified employees.

What I like about the company

I like the fact that we have a disaster relief fund for employee families in need

What I dislike about the company

The need for more people in the basic jobs such as customer service reps, counter people and warehouse workers that actually keep the business going. And less overall management position that really arent necessary.

Suggestions for improvement

  • The company needs new management. The whole team is falling apart and people are dropping left and right. I feel like we need new management.

What I like about the company

There is a lot of self motivation involved. But also you're working independently so you have your privacy. Good company.

What I dislike about the company

I don't like the fact that u have to get a fork lift license. Also working outside in the pipe yard is cold in the winter.
