I worked at Dunn-Edwards full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

The company offers reliable employment, somewhat decent health insurance, ability to transfer to different locations, ability to work different jobs, possibility for advancement if you get in with the right crowd, the company actually produces a quality product.

Cons

Very hard to achieve pay increases, corporate easily "loses" your training paperwork, very laborious work (at the store, non-management level), if you make the wrong friends your chances of advancement are slim to none, the company does not value you as a worker, the company has no interest in helping you utilize your full potential, management is typically close-minded and insecure, company does not show employee appreciation.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't be so insecure that you smother your employee's ideas, be respectful to your employees, prove that you care about your employees by acting as an advocate to ensure your employee actually receives any raises they earn, should earn, or were promised they would earn. Be productive with your time. If you have time to watch the cameras looking for the employee to mess up, you should instead use that time to help the employee get to where they want to go. Remember that it is a mutual professional relationship; you need them just as much as they need you. Go to school and get an education. Learn to clearly articulate what you want from your employee.
