Pros

Established Company
Great Concept for Stores

Cons

Winmark is a company that is doing well, yet still does not give the proper financial recognition to it's employees. I overheard one of the executives take pride in the fact that they were a low paying company! Also, there is a glass ceiling that can be felt, and a good ol' boys mentality at the top.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Diversify and share.

    Pros

    Management is responsive to industry/market changes. A family friendly environment, exciting new sales VP, great training, great compensation, I see a long-term future with this company

    Cons

    You work hard, but you can make a great living, wish I could work from home one day a week.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue with the current strategy, new VP of sales is great!

    Pros

    Great medical and dental, not much else.

    Cons

    Besides the poverty level wages and treacherous hours, this company NEEDS to invest in its infrastructure and people more. All of the software is sorely outdated and the infrastructure is sad. The store owners know it, the employees, know it, everyone knows, yet nothing is being done.

    If you're reading this and thinking of employment, just don't. Don't make the mistake I did and walk away.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in your company's infrastructure.
