Working with Tools
Discover what it's like working for Tools, a division of Atlas Copco headquartered in Auburn Hills, Michigan.
Flexible Time Off in Addition to Traditional Vacation Time
Our trusting and autonomous culture allows employees to take time off when they need it most with no need to bank time or worry about PTO availability, provided work objectives continue to be met. With a traditional PTO bank, concern about available time off could distract employees from what’s really important: their well-being. Time away from the office to truly unplug is so vital to the wellbeing of our employees, which is why we also offer generous vacation time that allows new hires up to 15 days off in their first year and up to 14 paid holidays.
Enhanced Parental Leave
Our leave of absence policy includes 10-weeks of fully paid maternity leave for all birth mothers. Additionally, we offer 2 weeks paid paternity leave for all new fathers, including adoptive parents.
Alternative Work Arrangements
Many employees tailor their work schedules. Arrangements are based on particular circumstances and can include telecommuting, compressed workweeks, part-time schedules, and putting in extra hours during busy seasons with reduced summer schedules. We also have a work-from-home policy that allows many employees to work from home 1 day per workweek.
Career Development Opportunities
At Atlas Copco, we believe that developing a competent and committed workforce is the only way to achieve our goals. We embrace this in many ways, such as encouraging all employees to complete a minimum of 40 hours of job related training per year. We also aim to have 85% of our managerial positions internally recruited and the only way to ensure great talent is available is to invest in development. We are proud of our global company and pride ourselves in the career advancement opportunities we offer to retain and advance future leaders.
