    Pros

    I have worked at with Stratmar for bout 6 months and each day I love coming to work. It's a very motivating environment and the Team works together. Management is always hands on and provides us with great leadership. The earning potential is fantastic and you can basically set your own hourly wage. Senior Management is always available to all staff members. Stratmar is a Company that really cares for all its Employees.

    Cons

    I have no complaints at all

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the Great Work

    Pros

    Ability to really create your own paycheck and it is very cool to work in an airport and meet all sorts of people there

    Cons

    Where to begin...I had 3 managers in the time since I started -- two were fired out of the blue (literally, they were there one day and gone the next, they had no idea they were being fired. Stratmar knew before hand of course because they immediately had a replacement in there the next day) no specific reason given. I guess top management didn't like them. Third one left before he could be suddenly fired, as well. Very big lack of proper training, you are pretty much given some legal stuff to read and sign your first day protecting the company from a legal standpoint and then thrown out onto the sales floor. One of the documents I think you sign is one that says you can be fired at any moment at their discretion -- so go figure. I guess this is to cover their legal backside. No respect, no valuing of employees -- literally there for about a year and one of the top management comes in after the last manager leaves and simply dismisses me from company literally because he can. It seems they are very fond of just getting rid of people "just because." And if you are not up to their specific standards or you are not getting enough apps, you're treated poorly. They keep changing the rules constantly, and I mean constantly. Every day I would come in there is something new they want to change from a legal standpoint. They don't try to help you or train you more on it... they have an "everyone can be replaced" mentality. No appreciation for long-term or loyal employees, none at all, which made it kind of scary to work for this company after a while. I helped them out doing a lot of early and late shifts when other employees had quit, but all of that was a wash once they replaced them, they just don't care. Upper management tried to forcibly take my airport badge from me, which I think is illegal because they do not own the badge at all, it belongs to the airport system. It made me very uncomfortable how much pressure this upper management guy gave me to leave the job -- he was literally raising his voice in the airport when I questioned him about why he was forcing me to leave and give up my badge. He couldn't believe that I was questioning him, in all his "I'm top management" glory. He seriously wouldn't let me speak, kept interrupting what I was saying. It was actually a very scary and uncomfortable experience -- something I want to report to their company's HR, although I doubt they would care. It had me wanting to get far far away from him and the company he represents. In the end, I just turned it in myself because I knew I could never go back to this company anyways after I was treated like a piece of nothing. What an awful awful company, stay away from them if you value yourself at all...because they certainly will not. I'm glad this was just a side job for me because I can't imagine how someone would feel if this was their full-time job and they were just dismissed with no warning. Spend your time and resources anywhere but StratMar.

    Advice to Management

    Don't think employees are just dispensable -- take the time to properly train them instead of thinking everyone can be replaced. It is a better investment of time and money.

    Pros

    I absolutely loved being responsible for each daily task I would arrive early to prepare myself for the day. My dream job !

    Cons

    At the time Management was going through changes. I was offered hours when I considered this job that the new hire manager would not allow. She often playfully shoved me and pulled my hair. She slandered about other employees. Said hateful things towards me. As a manager preview pushy for almost 3 years I know this is unacceptable. I am also a Private Retail Sales Rep for another company. I warned her I was putting my notice. Now that I know she has been removed I'm in the process of my return!

    Advice to Management

    Set a good example for other employees

    Pros

    Excellent opportunity for growth. In my 3 1/2 years, I've been promoted 3 times. Each promotion came because Stratmar noticed my performance and APPROACHED ME with the opportunity. Stratmar's "Open door policy" is second to none. Everyone from the CEO down is accessible.

    Cons

    The bonus program is the best it's ever been! I'd like to see more consistency with bonuses.

    Advice to Management

    Stratmar is very good at putting the employees first, keep up the good work !

    Pros

    StratMar is a great company to work for. In the 2.5 years i have been with this company, I have found the entire management staff to be down to earth and have "real" expectations. Although they do challenge consistency and advancement and drive expectations and accountability, As long as i do my job to the best of my ability, following the guidelines and procedures set, I have the potential to earn a very good income.

    Cons

    The challenge is on the sales teams to perform to expectations to achieve a full-time position.

    Advice to Management

    Keep operating with the "real" mentality

    Pros

    What I like most about StratMar is the leadership allows you to run your area of responsibility as your own company. They encourage you to take chances but in doing so, expect accountability.

    Cons

    Sometimes the hours are long, but overall, not too bad.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to over communicate with the teams as you currently do. With so many "dedicated programs" and so many employees working remotely, it's important that you stay connected to each area. Your training programs are phenomenal and it's very rewarding to see so many Sales reps work through them. StratMar is also a fun place to work and the office culture is excellent!
