    I worked at Steinhafels part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The flexibility of scheduling was nice. Networking provided through employment as excellent.

    Cons

    Treatment of employees was sub-par. An inability to hear a good a idea and test it out, rigid environment to work in where change was slow. Constant turn-over an moving of management.

    Pretty boring work, sales employees often created messes just to make the sale and then expected customer service representatives to clean it up and deal with angry customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Appreciate the employees you have more.

    I have been working at Steinhafels full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good pay for a retail job. The job is to meet and talk to new people every day, so can be a lot of fun.

    Cons

    Sales management. They believe in the meat-grinder approach to staffing with motivation through write-ups. The bottom 20% of each department gets a warning or a write up every month (whether they've hit their minimums or not) as "performance management." Also, commission-only sales so you always feel the need to watch your back. If that weren't bad enough, the Steinhafels want their *salaried* managers to sell a third as much as salespeople, pitting the management against the sales force, so you again have to watch your back. Even the top salespeople don't feel appreciated by this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They wouldn't take any suggestions seriously anyway. ESPECIALLY not from a salesperson.
