Job Security

Even though was laid off after 10 years, I received 6 promotion's and given a management position and skills to take to another company. Thank you Tarsco.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Teamwork - too much micromanaging.

What I like about the company

Opportunity...... Was given chances other companies would not. Started cleaning bathrooms and at end was in charge of Shipping, Buying (quotes), Inventory, and Safety.

What I dislike about the company

Does not react to small problems when they are manageable. They wait til it blows up and people suffer.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I would suggest that upper management take the time to talk to each employee at Tarsco Bolted Tank, and ask how are things really going. Upper management needs to really listen to the good, and the bad. Then from all the information gathered, make required changes to better the company. The current situation, is that you have employees afraid to lose their jobs over mistakes being made, so they lie or shift blame to someone else. None of this information is making it into the hands or ears of upper management.

What I like about the company

I enjoyed the design team that I work with.

What I dislike about the company

I did not like the lack of support from upper management. I did not like constantly worrying about someone stabbing me in the back, just to look good in front of the GM. There was to much CYA going on at Tarsco Bolted Tank, which created a toxic atmosphere to work in.

Company Culture

Management speaks down to employees, belittlement, and verbally abusive.

Support from management

Directors/managers are closed to suggestions or constructive discussions of any kind.

Freedom to work independently

Extreme micromanagement, no authority is delegated to employees.

Job Security

Positions and employees are terminated without justification, and no warning or write up protocols.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Remove the entire existing management team. Empower employees to demonstate their talents; and treat them with respect and professionalism.

What I like about the company

Compensation was competitive by industry standards.

What I dislike about the company

Closed minded management team runs off the most talented employees.
