    Decent people, not the best company model

    Inventory Control (Former Employee)
    Oviedo, FL

    ProsYou are trained on the job, great wealth of information if you end up at the right store.

    ConsReally don't pay a living wage (but I suppose no one does)

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease be more involved with your employees?

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Company work culture is draining and even unethical in certain respects

    Inventory Control Specialist (Former Employee)
    Lakeland, FL

    ProsCustomers are friendly and fun to work for.

    Excellent product variety and product quality..

    Inventory responsibilities are engaging and fast-paced.

    Company has an excellent special order system for customers with specific needs.

    Purchasing Agents are generally friendly.

    ConsCompany executives play favorites with promotions: nepotism is rampant, do not expect to move up in the company if you do not have an inside connection.

    Pay is not nearly worth the work-load.

    Prices are unreasonably high. This makes customer service difficult.

    Pressured to work overtime often. Unreasonable with family needs.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTo CEO: Just because he's your best friend's son doesn't mean he's a qualified or semi-qualified purchasing director. He is wasting your money and he's ousting good, productive employees.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Corporate treats their employees like crap and the pay is horrible!

    Assistant Manager (Current Employee)

    ProsYou get to work with some very nice customers. Also, if you work in a specific store, co-employees can feel like family.

    ConsCorporate is extremely rude when they call or come into the stores. They treat the employees like crap, fly in and then fly out. They do not pay attention to how hard their employees work and they do not compensate for their hard work. Starting paying for a store manager is $27,000/yr. They offer everything in the initial hiring interview and then do not come through. There have been individuals who have worked for Chamberlin's for years and the only time they receive pay raises is when the minimum wage goes up. New people get paid a hire rate than hard working individuals who have been there forever.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRealize that we are in 2012 and not 1955. Employees deserve to be treated like respect especially if they are working their butts off. Reward loyalty. Do not talk badly about your staff to other stores. Have more than one person trying to run the entire Orlando area. Support your employees. Chambelrin's owner and corporate management should be ashamed on how they run this business!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
