The competition between upper management is making the lower employees suffer.

I have been working at Kelly-Moore

ProsIf you want to get a painter's license and want to learn more about the paint products before becoming a contractor, this place would be a good place to start with. At least you would know different type of paints are for which area and the reason behind it; furthermore, you would understand the procedure of doing it as well.

ConsThe people on the upper management always competing with each other and they always have one or two loyal employees working in the store to check on other employees and report back to them like once a week. The camera in the store is horrible as well because those camera are used to prevent from stealing but the fact that the customer would literally come into the store and steal without being notice because there isn't any bar code sensor at the front of the store. It's very disrespectful for the employees and there are no trust between the management team and the regular employees. It's like loose sand that doesn't work together. The job security is extremely low because you can get fired easily. If the management doesn't like you due to whatever reason, they would do anything to get you fired such as being late for 3 mins on one day could result in getting a corrective (other employees late over 10 or 15 mins with numbers of days and they are fine). Didn't check the will call order before doing the sale would also result in a corrective (you are not the one doing the will call too but you would get a corrective). In fact, Kelly Moore has the highest job turnover rate and the lowest pay in the Paint Industry. If you are interested in working in Kelly Moore as a full time employee, please just consider it's temporary job just to make you feel better.

Advice to Senior ManagementI would suggest that the company should change their management team. Without trust between the employees and the management, it would be hard for the company to be successful in any way.
