No one is kept informed about anything till it happens

They don't hold each tech to the same standards. Some are treated with special treatment. They are not a family oriented business and employees are just a number and not really respected.

Pros

Some of the people are nice

Cons

No breaks, equitment quality is poor, pay is not as good as they advertise

A great place to work. Enjoyed the work place.

The work you put into the job, there were great rewards, for the good work you did. A never ending learning attitudes towards the employees. I thought there benefits could have been better. But that was in 2015. The Managers I worked with were some of the best. The pay was respectible for the level of your experience.

Great Place to Work

Worked in sales. Everyone was very good to work with. Parts, service and sales all seemed to work very well together. I would recommend to anyone. I left to move closer to family, other wise i would still be working there.

poor environment with horrible acting people

management will not control the drama within this place and allow bullying, drinking, and drug use. A select few run other employees off with their actions and again it is overlooked because they need a body plain and simple! They lie to you about having wash bays to detail the equipment in! There is only 1 dealer with a wash bay so otherwise you wash outside in the below freezing weather.

Pros

its a job

Cons

Cold, Wet, Drama, No indoor work conditions

Always looking out for their employees, training advancement

I would go back to work for plains if a position was offered. I liked the family atmosphere, other technicians would help each other. They offered a flex spend account for medical dental vision and prescription needs, which was very convenient.

Was stressful

Had a great manager, but work environment was caustic and people tended to pass blame rather than try to work through solutions. I left to work in a more balanced environment

Very Productive Workplace

We would prep jobs early in the morning for scheduled pivot set ups or repairs. Then drive to the field or location of the pivot and do any and everything on them. We fixed, repaired, maintained, built, and trenched underground in for enter pivot irrigation systems. I was sent to Reinke school so I learned a lot on the electrical and structural side of pivots. The manager there is great and teaches others a lot of knowledge on these systems and is patient with new comers. Other co-workers teach and share their knowledge and experience about pivots and show good teamwork. The hardest part of the job is you work in all the elements whether its rain, snow, humid, hot, cold, ect. The best part of the job is there is so much to learn on these machines that you will never be bored.

Pros

Paid holidays, vacation, sick, health benefits, and will pay school tuition.

Cons

Long hours in summertime, short breaks, and heavy lifting.
