    Great job, not great people

    I worked at P.C. Richard & Son part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    As a customer service rep/office worker, I was spared the difficulties of working the sales floor. I got to hang back when the store was quiet and focus on my own work.

    Cons

    The salesmen are aggressive, lying people. They are so caught up in making their commission that they forget how to treat someone like a human being.

    I have been working at P.C. Richard & Son full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I'm not sure there are any, let me know when you find one. I have worked a long time for this company and the way they treat their employees and customers keeps growing worse.

    Cons

    I have seen people get moved up to management positions .that had no business being there. Working hard doesn't count in this company. It's about politics.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This company is not going to last much longer if they don't have better management in place.

    Pros

    I had a chance to work with the elderly, which I absolutely loved and was able to learn so much from. My greatest pleasure was to help them receive all benefits that they were eligible for and to maintain a healthy lifestyle.

    Cons

    The worst part of this job was seeing clients pass away due to age and illness.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make positions permanent.

    I worked at P.C. Richard & Son

    Pros

    Training was in depth. Managers helped close deals.

    Cons

    Commissions started to get lower. Killer hours. They would work you in the middle of a blizzard with no customers because we were commission based and they didn't pay if we didn't sell.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    work-life balance. less hours

    I have been working at P.C. Richard & Son full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    There is a lot of freedom to perform your job and create sales. Their benefit package is good and they will match up to 3% in your 401K. Product training is available every year. They cover expenses for the outside sales reps and everyone is relativily nice.

    Cons

    The executive management team is hard to break into. Most workers are disgruntled and morale is low because they are overworked and under paid. You have to have a great sense of humor and be very self motivated. Trying to get a raise is like going to the dentist. They could afford to be more generous but believe it would not result in more productivity. It is a catch 22.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This is a tough and difficult commodity type business. I believe annual reviews should always include pay raises when an employee is performing at high levels. Not sure any advice would help change the culture.
