I have been working at R.C. Willey full-time for more than a year

Pros

Solid company. Great people to work with. Average time with company of most managers is 10-15 years. Average time of most salespeople is 5-7yrs.

Cons

Its retail so forget about getting the major holidays off. Also, you work every Saturday and your schedule throughout the week varies. Also, communication from managers is one sided (them to you) and they don't encourage suggestions from the salespeople.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management needs to actively improve on their supervising skills namely in the form of communication and rapprt building. Just because you're a sales manager doesn't mean you stop selling....your true clientele is now your sales staff.

    -Good discounts.

    Cons

    -Poor management.
    -No advancement potential.
    -Promotes work safety, but work can be extremely strenuous.
    -Company cares more about profit than the happiness of their employees.
    -Went 4 years without a raise, then to finally get a 11 cent bump.
    -Favoritism.
    -Poor pay.
    -Benefits are terrible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show more appreciation to your employees and really think about setting up a management review program. The grunts who do the physical work are the backbone of the company and are yet the most under appreciated.
