    It's more than just a job

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsLes Schwab is a place that has a strong focus on employees and our customers. Excellent benefits and profit sharing programs make all of the hard work worth it. The company continues to grow and create opportunities to advance. What I thought might be a job, I now have a career.

    Consit is hard to top out because they ware you down way before you can get to that pay, dealing with customers who are only worried about themselves.

    Advice to Senior Managementpay your employees better

    Fair and Rewarding

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsLes Schwab provides us with excellent benefits and promotional opportunities. Love how everyone works together to make a store successful and I respect how we support our communities by participating in and donating to local events.

    ConsWorking in the bad weather can be tough but it also brings increased sales that benefit us because of the unique profit sharing that Les created.

    Unappreciated!!! Current employee of 13 + years. I doubt this Is what Les had in mind. Can't wait to find a new job

    Sales and Service (Current Employee) Portland, OR

    ProsWell pros.. Not many. Benifits and retirement. Good retirement. If you are a manager then there are lots of pros.

    ConsNot nearly enough pay for a top wage employee. Hard to support a family on that pay scale unless you are in management. They say its all about family and customers... For management it's all about $$$$$$. Always getting the customer buying somthing in and out faster than the customer who has already bought tires and is waiting to get a flat fixed for 2 hours. Tryin to get a Saturday off or maybe a long 3 day weekend to do somthing with your family is nearly impossible. Management rotate every weekend off between manager and asst mgr. long weekends if they want. Leave early Friday or and take off till Monday or take Saturday off and comeback Tuesday. Management does whatever they want. Come and go as they please. They need to held accountable and have surprise visits from zone and regional managers. Oh and finally we have sick pay this year. Its always been if you dont work tou dont get paid!!!!! Im sure managers are pissed about having to pay an employee when hes/she is home sick. Would rather just come to work and give everyone the flu. Unreal!! Just not a good company to work for anymore. Lots of other jobs out there that pay more and are way better to there employees. I have seen lots of great employees walk away from big bonus and benifits and take big pay cuts just to get out of this company. I'm not far behind...

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake care of your employees!!!!! Hire more employees so that way when all of the experienced ones leave your not screwd to bad.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    They don't care about you, you can be replaced the next say.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsStarted as a part timer with 40 a week than moved to 29- hours a week, decent co workers.

    ConsManagement doesn't care about you , they only care about there big fat bonuses, commercial boss is lazy and never helps, hurt my back and was told Injury was not severe enough for workers comp got let go the next day. Some of your co workers think they are superior than you and make you do tasks that don't make sense. Pay is extremely horrible and not a chance to succeed In such a company. This is by far the worst place I have ever worked in my life. Worked there for 1 year

    Advice to Senior ManagementMaybe if you don't care about your big fat bonuses someone will appreciate your work, also don't call your employees " family " if you're going to treat them like dirt.
