I have been working at Bodek and Rhodes

Pros

I want to start off by saying Ian a great worker and not a worker who doesn't want to work ...only good thing bout this place is you can wear anything to work no dress code

Cons

Family owned meaning no oppt for growth ....They make you share accts with others reps who don't even work on the acct.senior management has accts and have sales assistants Do all the work and they get paid off it .commsions is joke I'm a sales rep and never in my years of sales has the commsion rate been 1% and 2% and certain brand people only work hear because of Kay offs in Philadelphia area and turn over is very high STAY AwAy

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I don't know it you look at pay scales in area but it's very low 8K on base on average and commsions a joke hello that's why you have high turn over

    I worked at Bodek and Rhodes

    Pros

    The people are very nice. Laid-back work environment. Jeans, tees and sneakers are ok to wear although some come dressed business casual.

    Cons

    Warehouse environment. Family owned business. If you are family you are well compensated. If not, you are treated like a second-class citizen. No sick days or personal days - just 10 days vacation. Everyone regardless of effort gets the same percentage of pay raise.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat everyone equally with same benefits. Treat them like they are human, not one step up from neanderthals. Share information within the department.

    I worked at Bodek and Rhodes full-time

    Pros

    The pay is decent and you get major discounts on their private label Ultraclub brand, Adidas, Izod, Cubavera and other top brands. Alan is also a grade A trainer.

    Cons

    * Good ol' boys environment masquerading as a "family" company. The tenured employees there generally hate when anyone new is hired and even haze them through intentionally giving misinformation, stealing lunches, etc.
    * Complete and utter disconnect between Human Resources management and reality. They think that the practices of this company are normal. Giving no 10 or 15 minute breaks and expecting employees to work 5 or 6 hours straight is uncalled for.
    * "Pass the buck": No one there takes responsibility and transferring customers from department to department is apropros. Any new blood that tries to change this mentality is met with mistreatment by the seasoned veterans.
    * No overtime but the day doesn't end at 530: Even though you don't get overtime, it's frowned upon if you don't leave at 540 or 545. If you are one minute early leaving or one minute late, you are docked 15 minutes from pay.
    * Chilling, negative enivronment: Everyone who "mentors" you will air their dirty laundry about the company, spread rumors, give you misinformation. Even was given a link by MANAGEMENT about bad reviews about this company on this website.
    * Backward technology: Database is from 1997, all computers have Windows XP, Internet access banned for any employees below sales.
    * Supports hazing and harassment: Was told by an employee there that male and female employees regularly use quid pro quo to promote people and that if your'e not married into the Rhodes family, you'll never get past middle management.
    * Unprofessional sales team: Ever see Boiler Room? Yeah. It's 2012 and it's surprising this place hasn't been slapped with a class action lawsuit. It's totally acceptable there that customers call in using homophobic slurs.
    * The President "hates" rumors yet the entire time I worked there, rumors swirled about other employees.
    * People steal your lunches. They claim to have a camera that can see the refrigerator yet refuse to rewind tape when stolen lunches are reported.
    * Inconvenient to public transit: No sidewalks, cops pull you over if they see you walking in bike lane.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get with the times, you can't hide from being exposed any more thanks to the Internet. Fox 29 should be told about this place.
