Pros

The people are great. They are some of the best people to work with. Everyone is willing to help with anything at work or home if needed. Family atmosphere.

Cons

Pay is not what I expected. Chance of advancement seems poor at the present time. Not being challenged enough.

Advice to Management

Keep the employees in mind as an investment. Make sure they advance and feel good about where they work. Don't think of company advancement without them.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Small company, easy to find and talk to the people that you need to know to get the job done.

    Cons

    Because its a small company, little "clicks" of people are formed, and sometimes that can be detrimental when it comes time to promote or even get a fair review on your performance.

    Advice to Management

    You put rules into place that you do not follow. If you are going to make rules, follow them consistently, otherwise don't bother. Also, the rules that apply to the people out on the floor ALSO apply to the leadership. I could not believe all the "ethical" talk that was touted there, only to see upper management thumb their noses at it time after time. That's a sure-fire way to decrease morale and motivation.

    I worked at Spartan Motors full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pay and benefits, I guess.

    Cons

    Where to start? The last review sums it up - they are clearly talking about a specific toxic, juvenile, backstabbing, hateful, unprofessional department. There is zero leadership for this team, and as a result, turnover is extremely high. Numerous people have left after less than a year because of a certain manager's preferential treatment of certain team members and horrible treatment of others. If you like being demeaned in front of other people, talked down to, or given ZERO authority, this is the place for you. As for as HR, they talk a good game, but in the end will do nothing to support employees when issues are brought up. Stay away.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the cancer who doesn't know how to lead, otherwise you will continue to lose quality employees. Your reputation is suffering.
