What is the best part about your compensation package?

Compensation Reviews

Very competitive pay rates, generous benefits for all levels of employee

The whole package is good!

401k and insurance plans are good

Profit sharing and incentive bonuses.

I think what they offer is fair. But I would gladly take a cut in the over all for higher pay. Since people who started over 6 months after me are making the same or more.

Why do you feel undervalued and what would make you feel better about your compensation?

Compensation Reviews

Employees need more money more money better workers

Review from Operations Dept

Higher pay. More respect. Better treatment .

When working in rain, sleet, snow. hail, and burning hot sun with humidity during a profit busting year during high lumber sales and prices that the company would pay a bit more to cover that. It's not the rate though. A profit share for yard and non management would be nice and motivating.
