    Supervisor causes employee to err, then makes employee take the "flak" from customer.

    I worked at Atd American Company full-time

    Pros

    Get some experience working in an office while learning to be "thick skinned". (After all, it's a wholesale company.)

    Cons

    Nasty co-workers and supervisors, owners always back the supervisor, not the entry-level employee.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I hope your company has changed it's ways since I worked there in 1990.

    Disappointing, to say the least. I really thought I would retire from ATD.

    I worked at Atd American Company full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Met some wonderful, hard working people. The textile division pretty much carrying the rest of the company.

    Cons

    Most of the employees at ATD have second jobs due to low pay; the morale is horrible. Lots of lateral moves and titles to avoid raises. The original owners knew how to run a business...the "kids" not so much.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hope you're invested wisely...

    I worked at Atd American Company full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    nice building, close to the jenkintown train station

    Cons

    Too many family members that would not be able to hold a job anywhere else in the world. Some have major anger issues. many long time employees also couldn' be hired anywhere. Very very angry pissy people work here. Very very petty. Some people are out and out BULLIES and they are permitted to do so because they are RELATED!! not fair

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of your dead wood family members. Alos many of your long time employess are very unhappy and talk bad about the company behing family members backs. Start drug testing.

    I worked at Atd American Company

    Pros

    It was nice to have to maintain a relationship w/ the customer instead of answer the phone, answer question, and the call was done.

    Cons

    It was a fairly large company felt like a number. EVeryone there seemed very clique-y. More so than any other job I've had.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It was a good place to work I liked it there. I felt that I could have had more guidance with the suspenses.
