Company on the decline

Sales/Customer Service (Former Employee)

I worked at Grimco full-time for more than a year

Prosits a job, i guess.

Consmicromanagement

no recognition for hard work unless you're in the "in crowd"

no growth

no one takes responsibility for their mistakes

horrible customer service

they only value top customers and could not care less for the smaller ones

salary does not match up to work load

young managers (25-27 yrs old) have no idea how to manage people

only the mediocre work here and actually stay here

Advice to Senior Managementvalue every single one of your customers, big or small, that's true customer service

value your employees and pay them a respectable salary

do not put a young kid as your manager because he will start dating a subordinate and give her better treatment than the rest of the people under him (true story)

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Top salesperson, lowest paid.

Customer Development (Former Employee)

I worked at Grimco full-time for more than a year

ProsA consistent schedule.
No issues with HR.
HR is actually very efficient and reliable.
Entry level job for a few college kids with no where else to go.

ConsCommission structure is a joke. If you want to make any money on it, you have to basically kill yourself to get it.
Base pay is not up to par with current times.
Company stuck in a 1985 mindset with no room for innovation. They were scared to get a Facebook page and Twitter page originally because they were afraid of all the negative feedback they would get from their customers.
Unwilling to change in the least bit.
Management is very two-faced - As in they literally believe that they can lie to you and you will accept it regardless of facts.
The corporate culture is the "good-ole boy" mindset. Only males at the top, and they hold on to their power with a strangle hold.
They value the person that will literally make Grimco their entire life.
They will sometimes expect you to work far beyond your salaried hours with no compensation in return. (As in until 2am in some extreme cases)

Advice to Senior ManagementPay your workers! You are already having major staffing issues throughout the country, and more will be coming soon.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
