    Pros

    You can move up quickly. Vacation time/Time off. Some employees are very nice. Company is beginning to work on improving from within.

    Cons

    Employees promoted from within are valued less/paid less on average than employees brought in from other companies, even with similar years of experience. Culture is extremely, extremely, self critical and focused on missed opportunities. Achievements are seldom recognized. Culture is also highly secretive, which leads to gossip and rumors.

    Advice to Management

    Transparency isn't always 100% possible and some things have to remain confidential, but I think the situation can be worked on. Being self critical is necessary for growth and is overall, a good quaintly, but a better balance of praise and criticism would be nice.

    Pros

    1) learn new things everyday to help you grow within the company. 2) Easy to move up in the company if you work hard. 3) Employee discounts from 10 to 40 percent off. 4) Great people to work with.

    Cons

    1) I feel that they underpay their associates and management team. We work hard. 2) Associates can only get 25 hours per week. 3) Sometimes we are understaffed due to having to cut shifts to save payroll.

    Advice to Management

    1) Raise the pay for all associates and management. We deserve it. 2) Be consistent on what you are paying others in similar positions internal and external. 3) Allow for more full time positions. 4) Give us more payroll to work with. 5) Give us an accurate freight report a week in advance so we can have an accurate amount of associates needed in the stock room to complete the truck daily.
