Cons: low pay, micro management, and no career growth
Modspace is a great place to work if you're a recent college grad. Commission payout is very low and job growth is tuff. Management is all about micro management.Ok place to work to gain experience for one or two years.
Branch Manager (Former Employee), Madisonville, TN – February 6, 2014
Pros: great bonuses in the beginning, yearly trips for game plan
Cons: bonuses went away in the end and the drive to and from work was too long. 140 miles round trip
A typical day was interacting with vendors at work and talking with customers on the phone. I learned how to manage an office budget and negotiate lower vendor rates well. I rarely saw management. I was pretty much an independent Office manager and much of the interaction with my superiors was via conference calls. The hardest part of the job would – more... be after the end of the physical year when I would have to work with Sales and come up with new goals and benchmarks for the new year that exceeded the previous year. The most enjoyable part of the job would be when I would get a phone call or an email from a pleased customer and when that customer would refer our company. – less
Dispatcher (Current Employee), Syracuse, NY – September 9, 2013
Pros: 4 weeks vacation a year
Cons: health insurance isnt the greatest
when I get to work I have to make sure I have POs for all the vendors that haul office tailers or conexes, sometime I get no from the vendors that they cant make something happen and then I have to keep on continueing to make deliveries happen with the resources available, then after I cut POs and schedule pickups and deliveries of all units in (2) – more... locations, Clifton park and Syracuse. I also have to make sure that all of our drivers and every vendor working for Modspace complies with ALL saftey requirements. I call customers on an hourly basis so probably 50% of my day is negotiating times and availability between drivers/setup crews and customers needs. Very busy and hectic and things are always changing...its definately a challenge! I get along great with my drivers and the hardest part of my job would actually be making every customer happy at all times and when I dont it reflects me. It can be very rewarding to here that your the best but other times can be disappointing. Its very stressful and thankfully I can deal well with it... – less
Office Administrator (Former Employee), Paoli, PA – August 14, 2013
The Modular Space Corporation was a nice place to work. My time and position at the corporation was only a temporary position, but I would recommend them to anyone looking to work in the business/ sales and administrative field.
District Dispatcher (Current Employee), Lake City, GA – March 2, 2013
Pros: a lot of vacation time
Cons: winter months are really borning
Decent place to work but real depends on which location you work at because each location has a deferent culture. My location had a great team of people who had a great deal of respect for each other. Going to work felt like I was going to hang out with family members. I just feel my position lacked a challenge and was dull at times.
Dispatcher/Administrative Asst (Former Employee), Lake City, GA – February 28, 2013
Pros: great salary and benefits
Cons: somewhat dirty shop office environment. front office in a mobile office.
I enjoyed working in the fast-paced demanding job of dispatcher and handled customer service as well, in the shop office. Unfortunately, this was not the cleanest environment, but it was more relaxed overall. I had a good rapport with my co-workers and my supervisor and enjoyed coming to work. We were like extended family.
ACCOUNTS PAYABLE ADMINISTRATOR (Former Employee), Berwyn, PA – January 30, 2013
Processing my specified locations. I learned supervisory skills and being independent. Hardest part of job was learning how to cope with criticism Easiest part of job is the trust between my supervisor and myself. I enjoyed the job and learning to be challenged with new tasks.
Program Manager (Former Employee), Tampa, FL – September 4, 2012
Pros: worked closely with the state for regultions
Cons: ran with a skeleton crew
Fast paced, no need for a todo list because it was customer needs driven. Your day could and would drop at a moments notice. We were understaffed but still managed to get the job done and not sacrifice quality. I enjoyed the team we had and the dedication everyone brought to the table.
driver (Former Employee), detriot – August 14, 2012
Pros: free slice of pizza once a year, if you can get back before its all gone
Cons: equipment is out dated, and very unsafe
Incentives and recognition are funneled to over paid managers and sales reps.They show up late, and leave early.They criticize field employees,fighting the elements, of a job they are not capable of doing.
