    if you like low energy, lackadaisical environment as well as a minimum effort will do mindset then this a great play to work.

    Cons

    daily confusion, erratic environment, no strategic plan, no clear goals or direction.

    Advice to Management

    Provide clear job descriptions, include roles and responsibility. Consider providing weekly, monthly and yearly goals.

    Pros

    good work environment, start pay is pretty good, laid back.... to a degree...., all the tools you could need to succeed at the job are there; from training, to equipment you need to use

    Cons

    sometimes a bit over worked, albeit a good work environment..... not really a grateful one. issues with computer systems quite frequently. advancement doesnt seem to happen too often

    Pros

    Friendly atmosphere, mostly nice people. most weekends off and 8-5 gig!! good vacation time.

    Cons

    no leadership, no training, been with company going on 5 years,no raise in pay, as a matter of fact my pay went down every year. If your a good ole country boy you got it made, if not your frowned upon. forget it if your female, your looked upon as meat not a person or employee. no perks whatsoever! no training whatsoever, in my 4 years I've had two days of training. hardly any one at corporate knows how to answer a phone, return a phone call, or email

    Advice to Management

    you can share all the advice you want but it doesn't go anywhere, my manager has no interview skills. the last 5 people he has hired mostly haven't lasted a year. its suppose to be corporate but its not unless your in the home office.

  7. Worst job I ever had

    Pros

    Good happy hour drinking after work. They typically drink after work every day in the warehouses at a lot of locations.

    Cons

    Dead end job. Pay is terrible. No room to advance. Management uneducated and inexperienced. Do not value employees. Not a place for women to work they are treated liked objects. Also counter sales employees not allowed to sit down.

    Advice to Management

    Hire managers who are educated and experienced. Stop prejudice attitude toward women.

    Pros

    Corporate Leadership In Fort Worth Focused on Acquisitions and Growth

    Cons

    Local Management is not aware that the year is 2013. Some of the things I experienced first hand: Top Sales Person X cannot attend customer trip because he is too "Christian", Female Manager cannot be promoted because "we have our leadership meetings at the deer camp, not sure how she will fit in", Male managers have offsite private meetings over dinner with young female employees in lieu of reprimand for excessive absences from work, Manager asks direct report to find white warehouse workers because "There is not enough cream in the coffee", Manager shows direct report female a picture of his genitals on his cell phone, Male Manager pays for breast augmentation for female employee

    Advice to Management

    Chip Hornsby you are a dynamic industry leader, the people that you have in senior management in East Texas will forever tarnish your reputation. Look closely at these "Good Ole Boys" They could seriously jeopardize your future.

  10. Helpful (1)

    Get the experience you need and run. You will not go anywhere unless youre a white male "good ol boy"

    Pros

    Laid back atmosphere and good party crowd (happy hour and making work friends)

    Cons

    This company is very protective of the few white males who are southern "good ol boys". They are very conservative republicans, so if thats your thing, by all means.

    Advice to Management

    Get in line with HR policy. If you dont, youll eventually flush the entire company down the drain on one bad law suit.

  11. A fun Non-corporate place to work, but little chance to move up within the company

    Pros

    Working with clients and developing relationships within the community allowed me to build a lasting portfolio of targets for future business applications. This is a relaxed corporate structure that allows each market segment to determine its individual needs and relate to each geographical market as necessary. Great job for someone just out of college.

    Cons

    Poor benefits on 401k match; There are very few opportunities to move up within the company which shows because there are hardly ever any performance reviews or pay raises. So initially, ask for desired salary for the length of time you want to stay with the company at hire; poor/little training from corporate on company software and procedures or on company values/visions. Occassional weekends are required.
