Pros

I had the opportunity to work for the best supervisor I have ever worked with.

Cons

Long days, hard work, lots of chemicals and no benefits.

Advice to Management

A performance bonus would have been nice after a year of service, or at least an incentive of more than $10 if I work even harder.

    Pros

    can't think of any except I made some great friends in my peer group

    Cons

    I believe they moved the service center to Boise because of low wages, and they are taking advantage of it. Poor review process for employees, 16 months for most new employees to have a review and raise. Interview information did not align with actuality. Management does not want to hear the employees' ideas on setting SOPs for new center.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to the lower level employees and find out what is REALLY going on. About half of the employees are looking for new jobs.

    Pros

    Potential
    Some great brands
    A few shining stars trying hard
    Moving in the right direction

    Cons

    Company steps on potential like ants
    Some of the worst marketing teams ever seen on some of the great brands
    Company shrouds the stars
    Taking the wrong step all along the way
    Horrendous customer service - hard to make money when you can't deliver product
    Dysfunctional is an understatement
    No marketing investment in products
    Minimal focus on the consumer
    Absolutely no customer focus, surprised retailers stay partnered as long as they have
    Culture stinks
    Years behing competitive company set

    Advice to Management

    Congratulations on the new CEO, very refreshing! Hopefully he brings a sturdy broom!!!

    Look at the stock price and ask yourself, how did we get here?
