    Pros

    Good work environment if you're in the right department. Positive attitudes. Lots of bonus opportunities. Good hours. On-site gym and cafeteria.

    Cons

    Can be hard to move up in the company if you are not an experienced networker. More about who you know than what you can do sometimes.

    Advice to Management

    Need to compensate better for the amount of work people do.

    Pros

    Excellent health benefits.
    Quarterly bonus was usually very good.
    Tight knit group of coworkers several of which are still great friends years later.
    Hours were normally very good.
    Excellent work life balance.

    Cons

    Extremely hot in the summers.
    Some areas are back breaking.
    Hard to advance. Great people but very much a 'good ole boy' network.
    PTO was a joke.

    Advice to Management

    Management within the building are some of the best.

    Pros

    Company has a talented management team that quickly adapts to market conditions. Further, and for the most part, the company is cognizant of internal and external dynamics in the market place and has the ability to capitalize on social trends, etc. They believe in their product from top to bottom and the people I worked with there were excellent.

    Cons

    I had a bad experience with the company, mainly due to personnel and personal issues, but I believe that to be the exception, rather than the norm. Other than that, I can't say this company has any real con's.

    Advice to Management

    The only advice I could have offered at the time was regarding the specific market segment that we were in, but I believe the company no longer really serves this market segment.

    Pros

    A reasonably relaxed work environment a freight job. There are several perks beyond the strict pay structure. Over all they tend to promote a culture of family and success.

    Cons

    Hours don't match what is typical for the industry (they advocate longer hours), while they preach having time for friends and family and the importance having time off.

    Advice to Management

    To keep the best and brightest, you need to pay them.

    Pros

    Clayton is a professional company with a real desire to do the right thing. They are intentional about training new hires and want them to succeed their way. Company is a Warren Buffet company

    Cons

    The challenge is the continual pressure to produce sales and profits. There is really not anything that can be down as this is a sales organization. Just understand you have to work!

    Advice to Management

    Understand that sometimes things don't go according to plans.

    Pros

    A reasonably relaxed work environment for a sales job. There are several perks beyond strict $$ compensation. Over all they tend to promote a culture of family and success. You are selling a product that truly is top notch and the company always puts customers first ALWAYS.

    Cons

    Hours don't match what is typical for the industry (as they are much longer), although they preach family being important its hard to take time off, compensation is extremely low when compared to the independents in this industry.

    Pros

    Incredible benefits - Insurance for my family was cheap, had a matching 401K, etc. The culture is positive as the company truly wants what's best for all (customer, employee, etc.)

    Cons

    Working every Saturday. We never had a scheduled Saturday off. This varies store to store so in some cases it will be no problem. If the manager would give one Saturday out of four off, I think it would help.

    Advice to Management

    Love the company...keep up the good work.
