It's one of the only places to work in this city.

I worked at Fire Mountain Gems and Beads

ProsFMG is large, which means it has a lot of positions you could fill. It's also recession-proof, as people who are laid off try to make money by selling jewelry made from FMG components.

ConsThe professional advancement seems to be based on arbitrary criteria - it's not based on skill or effort. The pay is horrendously low in accordance with industry standards (my new job pays TWICE what FMG paid and it's still not at the industry standard)

Advice to Senior ManagementI can't blame you for paying so little to your employees, as you can obviously get away with it, being the only major employer in Grants Pass, but as soon as another large company comes along, I wouldn't be surprised to see a huge number of resignations. Get your act together before it's too late.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Expect hard labor for low pay, some poor work enviorments, standards are not equal for everyone doing the same work.
