    Pros

    Friendly people to work with. I met some very nice people in a short period of time.

    Cons

    The biggest con was working in an environment that lacks diversity. Diversity hiring and promotional opportunities are limited for diverse associates.

    Advice to Management

    If you truly want to become a leader in the industry, invest in your people strategy. Human resources should be incorporated in the company's strategic plan.

    Ma and pa vibe. Not a giant corporation with tons of red tape

    Develop more stict policies to aid organization.

    I worked at True Value full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    PTO was decent to start. They match 401k. Nice building and most associates are very friendly. Had some great leaders that worked with me too try and promote me. I love the true value foundation.

    Cons

    Lower management was horrible. Ended up with a micro manager that affected work flow and then would question why you were behind. Pay wasn't competitive and yearly raises were a joke. Difficult to move up or through the company unless you made personal connections. Supervisor's were known to bash you to other departments as not to lose you.

    Advice to Management

    Take a closer look at lower management. I'm all for promoting within but some of them have no management skills and it's causing good people to leave. Continue to update systems. Review pay scale. Hire people to take over people who have left. Usually positions are left empty and employees end up over worked.
