    I have been working at Hollander Sleep Products full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Company is growing (purchased another basic bedding company in May, 2013)
    - Top management really cares about people - I have witnessed several positive examples during my tenure with the company.
    - They really do try to "Do the right thing" concerning associates and identified issues.

    Cons

    - Growing pains (integrating new facilities with different IT systems into the fold is challenging).
    - Finding the right skill set for open positions within the company is also challenging.
    -

    It's the Boys Club. They overpay the executives and the real producers are underpaid.

    I worked at Hollander Sleep Products full-time

    Pros

    It was a real family company. They offered few drinks, breakfast on Friday and were very accommodating. They were very good to their employess. They always had a wonderful holiday party and spared no expense.

    Cons

    It is an extremely political atmosphere. You cannot trust management. They will throw you under the bus, especially the HR manager. Everyone is scared to say what they really feel.

    I have been working at Hollander Sleep Products full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    People are generally very nice. There are advancement opportunities. PTO is good. Corporate office is nice.

    Cons

    Long hours, quite a bit of turnover. IT isn't very good and workers suffer because of it. HR is also not very good. You need to apply as recruiters are terrible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The hours people are expected to work are too long with little appreciation of the effort.

    Pros

    There is no dress code

    Cons

    Near constant overtime without advanced notice. Run down facilities, machinery in disrepair, inferior materials and poor management make work far harder than it must be. Low wages.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in the company.

    I worked at Hollander Sleep Products

    Pros

    Good benefits, friendly environment in some departments, good location, free drinks, working hours from 8:00 am to 4:30 pm, OK holiday parties.

    Cons

    low salaries, management lacking leadership skills, managers will promote only "friends" and not the qualified worker, very unhappy workers, leadership don't understand the importance of gaining employees’ trust and confidence.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Poor leadership solidifies in organizations when no serious action is taken to address poor leadership skills.

    I worked at Hollander Sleep Products

    Pros

    One of the few positive things I can say about working at Hollander Home Fashions was the casual dress code.

    Cons

    It was stressful to see the waves of high turn-around in all areas from the factories to the corporate office.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show more respect to the non-manager associates. Treat the employees like you would like to be treated yourselves. it's a business, not a caste system.
