    Pros

    Great $ hourly pay with a big third shift differential and the best company that I ever worked for because Weargaurd gave me a opportunity that no other companies ever gave me without any machine operator, or embroidery experience

    Cons

    4weeks of 9hours a day traininng, WITH only 15minutes for lunch break and you would not get monthly commition unless you would finish the entire order with out any mistakes and I am talking the customer expects perfection and it is really hard when you are still learning and protecting your technique

    Advice to Management

    Are you hiring at all at the Weargaurd warehouse in the custom embroidery machine department because it was honestly one of my favorite jobs iv ever had and I enjoyed showing up at work it was very fast paced and a great job opportunity to be a embroidery machine operator,and I would love the chance to work 11pm-7am with shift differential

    Pros

    Culture of the overall organization

    Cons

    Dated systems specifically financial systems for tracking and recording, HR systems was manual and antiquated.

    Advice to Management

    Be consistent, too many times senior leadership manages by "emotions", it is not about how much someone likes or dislikes another person to promote another, it should be based on overall performance.
