I have been working at Spectrum Brands full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

The senior management have consistently led us in the proper direction to remain competitive and profitable in a tough economy. While other companies are falling further behind, our profits continue and the ground level employees continue to be rewarded for their hard work.

Cons

None - as long as you recognize that employees should remain open to new challenges and should consistently strive to do well versus becoming complacent with where you've gotten to.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep up the great work!

    Pros

    Good Benefits and perks for employees.

    Cons

    Lays of many, many time. Upper management staff seemed to not communicate vital information. Needed better management. No company events. Moral was very low.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communication is key.

    I worked at Spectrum Brands

    Pros

    Great Job! Worked in big box retailers merchandising line of weed and pest control products. lots of latitude in work hours with a chance to use your ability to improve product sales and inventory turnover. I was responsible for 19 stores with minimal management presence or direction. Pay was decent but no benefits.

    Cons

    Not enough hours available in weekly schedule to get things done. Was only provided 20-30 hours a week to work 19 stores and with windshield drive time between stores was not able to visit every store on a frequent schedule

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give people more time to complete projects within the stores. With 20 stores it is hard to visit each store to complete the required tasks at hand
