    I worked at Winmark

    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.

    I have been working at Winmark full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits
    Good hours
    Management is pretty flexible with hours if something comes up
    Good relationships with the people I work with

    Cons

    Pay is average at best
    Very little room for advancement
    Little recognition for doing well
    Tiny year end bonuses even with the company profits soaring
    Small raises for most employees while execs make greater increases each year

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    How about sharing the profit of the company with everyone instead of just the people at the top? The rest of us need it more than you, at this point.
