    Great place if you are in management. Otherwise it is not.

    Installer (Former Employee)
    Atlanta, GA

    ProsYou get a regular paycheck.

    ConsYou work long hours with minimum compensation. They pay less than industry standard and pay you even less if you are not in the field. Those that have experience must pick up the slack for the ones without. Also , unless you are good friends with or related to someone you will never advance , no matter how good or how much experience you have. They will not make you fulltime even if you are working 80 hours a week.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop the cronyism and nepotism and increase the pay for those that have the experience. You may have the work now, but that always changes in this industry, when it does you will lose most of the experienced hands to your competitor that pay and treat their employees better.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Hired as I&D

    Setup & Dismantle Crew (Former Employee)
    Atlanta, GA

    ProsPay was decent if you like working overtime. Most of the people in the warehouse are great.

    ConsSupervisors hire family members, if you are not related or best friends with supervisors you don't work. Upper Mgmt is in their own world has no clue nor do they care how the employees in the warehouse or I&D are treated.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay attention to what is going on in your own warehouse. Get the nepotism under control. Take a long look at how your people are treated by middle management.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Team oriented, good pace, nice atmosphere to this company.

    Account Manager (Current Employee)
    Chicago, IL

    ProsThere is quick pace to the company due to deadlines and the pace of the trade show industry. Folks are mostly cooperative between locations.

    ConsLocation of HQ is not the best - gravel parking lot. But there are locations throughout the country and international as well.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Terrible Company

    Hired As I & D Lead Man (Former Employee)
    Atlanta, GA

    ProsThey have some work. Only good thing about Czarnowski

    ConsMost supervisors hire their own family members, because they can't get jobs anywhere else. Most do not know what they are doing. Worst supervised company I have ever worked with in my 26 year career.. Most supervisors are unskilled at supervising people. Your are promoted by who you are and not the fact your the best for the job.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire the person best for the position. Not your best friend or family member out of work.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    I guess i dont have what it takes to take your $ Mr. customer and to smile without fealing guilty.

    Setup and Dismantle Crew Member (Former Employee)
    Las Vegas, NV

    ProsCash under the table is great, if your a Shark!
    We dont move a finger until it's time and ahalf, if you dont pay the supervisor cash under the table.
    There are 4 supervisors in 1 shift, i forgot to mention that you need to pay each one before we lift a finger.

    ConsThe client has no choice.
    Teamsters will screw you in the end.
    The client is catching on, 1st it was Chicago, who is next.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWe are no longer in a possition to do what we do, we are no worse than the bankers in wallstreet.
    Once the cat is out of the bag and you are exposed the industry will not get a bail out.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Great place to work, stable environment.

    Project Manager (Current Employee)
    Chicago, IL

    ProsCzarnowski is like a family. Coworkers are friendly and the owners are willing to help their employees anytime.

    ConsBecause most of the offices are small, it is difficult to change positions or "climb the ladder."

    Advice to Senior ManagementCongrats on the new growth, and lets see some more friendly faces added to the team!
