Garrison Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
Garrison (various spellings) (from the French garnison, itself from the verb garnir, "to equip") is the collective term for any body of troops stationed in a particular location, originally to guard it, but now often simply using it as a home base.
Staff Accountant (Former Employee) says"They plays favorites, this starts with the very top. If you know one of the owners or someone in upper management you will be fine- rules that other employees are expected to abide by will not apply to you. If you are not one of the favorites, be prepared to lose your job for no given reason. Upper management (The CHIEF FINANCIAL OFFICER, this is who I worked under and had most contact with) is so unprofessional that they will not speak to you and walk right past you and speak to every other person around. They will go out of their way to ask another employee about your work load and if you have completed certain tasks instead of asking you directly. They will also question every single move that you make, even if you have proved competent to perform certain tasks in the past. They will also make you feel so uncomfortable just coming into work, it is a very tense and hostile work environment. Cons: Literally the whole entire work experience"

Systems Administrator (Former Employee) says"The compensation received was above average in comparison to like positions in the area. However, that can be said about most mid-sized trucking companies in the region.

Cons: Mismanagement and the lack of opportunity for advancement"
