I have been working at Criterion Brock full-time

Pros

Nicest people you will ever meet working there.

Cons

Salaries are so out of line with market rate it is obscene. Not sure how they will compete for good employees when economy improves. Building is old, many employees supply themselves with space heaters to stay warm, workstations outdated and cause ergonomic issues. No training budgets, management is completely out of touch with what makes a company of choice for employees, or they don't care.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Create an environment in which people can comfortably do their work, give them the tools and supplies to succeed.

    Pros

    Great opportunity for sales professionals, easy to grow territory as marketshare is on the lower end of things, Regional support from national account reps

    Cons

    Lots of paperwork, hard to accomidate customer special requests or custom orders for popular brands, company' overall low inventory strucuture

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try on different shoes, focus on market share before expansion into new markets, make support staff step up and fulfill orders and maximize time of field sales by letting them sell and spend less time on reports and paperwork

    Former Employee - Back Office in Portland, OR

    I worked at Criterion Brock full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Really nice people, great co workers.

    Cons

    Management's lack of respect for co workers. Low salaries and no interest by Management to retain the best and brightest. Lip service made to support staff, but all talk and no action.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sales is not the indicator of growth, profit is. Work with a low profit margin isn't profitable. Start looking at the bottom line after job is complete and make policy based on that.
