    Pros

    Freedom when it comes to hours worked. Your manager does not micro manage as long work is getting done.

    Cons

    Most of the customers are incompetent jerks. For the most part hourly employees do their jobs, but mostly bare minimums. Who could blame them? The company has nothing in place to develop hourly employees, and is not good about promoting from within.

    Corporate is extremely out of touch with what goes on outside of Houston, TX. The training program within this company is nonexistent and they take little to no time to develop their employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fight for your employees.

    Pros

    Great benefits, co-workers, and working environment. Company promotes lots of fun activities and functions outside of the company for their employee's.

    Cons

    You stay in the same position and salary (besides the 3% increase every year) for ever. The company doesn't promote much from within.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize your hard working and loyal employees more.

    Just like any corporate ladder, the less you work, the more you earn and the more you work, the less you earn.

    Pros

    Quarterly Bonuses (sometimes $300, sometimes $50)

    Cons

    A Goodman Branch consists of 3 employees. A Branch Manager, a CSR, and a Warehouse Employee. You can expect that the CSR and the warehouse employee complete all of the work while your Branch Manager sits in his office playing with his smart phone and talking crap about customers/clients to other local branch Managers. (PS, the Branch Manager typically earns about 3x the amount that a CSR or Warehouseman earns.

    They seem to give you an impressions that you have to fear or be intimidated by upper management. They are always mentioning that the "director of this" or the "operations manager of that" is coming in to visit and you have to play kiss-ass the whole time they're there. From my experience, they're all normal everyday people and just expect you to do the job that's assigned to you.

    Raises? Incentive? Never heard of it. I began working for Goodman in Nov 12 and resigned in Jan 2014 (15 months) . Not once did my branch manager mention a mid-year or annual review. And don't be surprised if that increase you've been desperately waiting for is any more than $.50 ----- "Sorry we couldn't increase your pay, but here's a $25 gift card to Target!" (great place to shop right now)

    If you're wondering why your sales might be suffering or you're losing customers, look to your managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire qualified individuals, not referred associates within the company. Match the managers salary to the work they actually put in. The workers want decent wages, not gift cards.

    Treat us with a respect and don't take us for granted. I know that, to you, we are just a number than can easily be replaced. But while you sit behind your computer all day, we're the ones who see the problems with your company.

    Pros

    Deciveing name "GOODMAN" nothing else worht mentioning

    Cons

    Many to list. Management from the top down, they treat people like a piece of trash. They do not have respect to Human or God creation in general. Family life forget about it, They give you cell phone, don't get excited, you must be connected to worjk 24/7, you get a 150 emails on everage daily, if you dont keep up with it, you are get in the hole. On a Sunday I did not answer my phone at 6 in the morning, but when I got up at 8, I saw the miss call, called my boss back, I was litterly belittled, degraded, insulted and cursed at, which was the norm day in day out. He forgot to submit important report for Monday morning so he wanted me to log in and work on my day off while he is enjoying his time out of town.
    You are not to make decision on your own, BOSS will bluntly say:
    "Who the .... authorized you". Do I have to go ON and ON....

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of your best assets. Get rid of the abuser, manapulitive managers.
