I worked at Artist and Craftsman Supply

Pros

Good selection of art supplies and great prices. When your store meets sales goals you get a gift card to buy stuff.

Cons

A&C is a cool place to go as a customer, but as an employee... hang on to your hat!! The owner micromanages his staff to a severe level and can be very vengeful and hateful for no reason. He directs you to do things and then chews you out a week later for doing it.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

COMMUNICATE LOGICALLY WITH YOUR MANAGERS and stop setting them up for failure. If you trust them a little more, your company will grow and grow and grow.

    Truly awful, distrustful overmanagement destroyed the good atmosphere at this workplace.

    Pros

    Being around mouth-watering art supplies, interesting coworkers and customers.

    Cons

    The store was not meeting sales targets, so as a 'solution,' workers were fired left and right and not replaced, leaving the survivors demoralized and ridiculously understaffed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to recognize and appreciate the hard work of the people you have; give them resources to build the business rather than withholding them if the business slumps.

  2.  

    Relaxed environment and casual atmosphere that doesn't follow you home at the end of the day.

    I have been working at Artist and Craftsman Supply full-time

    Pros

    Great company ethos and great management, employee ownership program with basic benefits, lots of business growth in the near future.

    Cons

    Limited wage growth in a very high cost area due to corporate stinginess, and therefore unhealthy apathy among staff.
