    I worked at Grimco full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great first job. First 2 years there I got 20% pay increares each year.

    Cons

    No growth. Is a little click that runs the company. Managment give you alot of work and people to lead but keep your job title were it is so they don't pay you more. Very odd

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have been working at Grimco

    Pros

    Great leadership from the top down... They only hire the best and expect the best in return. Start out compensation 30-40k per year usually. Must have college degree to get hired on. Very youthful... Mostly college graduates.

    If you do not absolutely love sales you will not make it within Grimco. I don't care if you are in accounting, hr, or sales... everything is sales oriented and pleasing the customer.

    Cons

    You will never work just a 40 hour week as a newbie if you want to stay in the company and move up. This should be expected within any company. Bob Hummert is an AWESOME man. He is the owner of the company (multi million dollar company) and knows everyone at corporate by name. I would recommend Grimco to anybody.

    Like everywhere else... everything is political. I was let go because of politics.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Solid leadership. Keep doing what you are doing.
