Management needed to be properly trained. Trying to make every employee cry because you yell at them is not effective.

Pay is horrible. They are still hiring in at the same rate as they were in 2003.

Advice to Management

Train better, more effective and pay a decent wage.

    Pros

    The people here care and want to help people, at least at the Mankato, MN location. Managers care about running the place reasonably and most co-workers are enjoyable. I love building and designing frames and helping people preserve artwork.

    Cons

    There are quotas you are expected to reach each day that are not always possible. You will be scolded and feel like you can never do well enough. People who work above and beyond what is asked are not easily noticed and are often taken advantage of. It is very hard to get by financially. I am a college student, most of my money goes to rent and bills, then some groceries then I go a couple weeks without any money and often run out of food. If given more hours it would be more enjoyable.

    Advice to Management

    Training is a must, there is no real training for any job here. Even management is left hanging. I believe higher wages and proper training would ensure quality workers and true care from employees.
