Handleman Company

District Manager (Former Employee)

I worked at Handleman

ProsThere are absolutely no pros to working for Handleman Company unless you are/were one of the chosen few. If so, you would be given "vice president" titles and obscenely disproportionate salaries based not on merit but on who you knew in the power seats.

ConsNo loyalty to employees
No upper management integrity
No career development program
Employee contributions not recognized or valued
No work/life balance
Poor benefits

Advice to Senior ManagementHandleman needs to look at the damage they've done to hundreds of key employees by handing over the reins to the group from REPS LTD. The people who comprise upper management at REPS are a looked at with disdain by legitimate players in the industry and have run Handleman into the ground.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
