Adding Top Heavy Employees, Cutting the Rest

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Spartan Motors full-time for more than 5 years

ProsGreat insurance benefits, most departments shut down for the holiday break. Opportunity to take on different roles as they cut positions and switch people around. The severance package was good!

ConsWhich day will be your last one. Does your area fit into the manufacturing world. Are you on a marketing team or a leverage team, makes a big world of difference.

Advice to Senior ManagementIt seemed like a ship without a rudder.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
