    Pros

    Steady full time and overtime. The company is growing and there is lots of job security

    Cons

    Hard work. Always pressure from the line and attention to detail is high. As far as factory work goes everything it expected and pay is low. High value placed on physical production.

    I worked at Tervis Tumbler full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The only pro of working for Trevis is the store teams and their willingness to help out a fellow manager. Pto, and 401k are also nice.

    Cons

    Cannot get support from your corporate team for ANYTHING! Corporate messes up with your orders and will not take responsibility. They make you clean up the mess. They give low performance reviews to all managers to avoid giving raises. Absolutely no room for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Take responsibility for your mistakes and don't make the stores have to clean it up. Hour more help at the corporate level and get things done.

    Pros

    I currently work in the Design Department in the Tervis Headquarters. The Design Team as well as the surrounding teams that I work with are very encouraging employees who strive to do their jobs as best as they can. Tervis is rapidly growing in sales, and the Tervis structure is constantly evolving to grow with the sales by modernizing our atmosphere, as well as structuring our organization so that all of teams work more fluidly in collaborations.

    Cons

    We are in the midst of adapting to the growth increase which brings about a lot of changes in our systems, structures and job responsibilities. There is much to still be worked out. But our leaders and teams are working through it, and in time, when it's settled down a bit, it will all come together.

    Advice to Management

    Really spend time with all of your teams to receive a thorough understanding of their day to day activities before changing them around.

    Pros

    Great employee discount, weekly pay, occasional bonus, great team, regulars can be very rewarding, amazing work environment and very friendly

    Cons

    Corporate is very micromanaging, expected sales are way out of reach. Extremely unreasonable contests to raise ADS and UPT. Constantly getting yelled at by customers about the new LTG policy.

    Pros

    Work life balance policies do allow you to command your schedule effectively.

    Cons

    Growth and organizational structure are not growing together. With more growth, comes disconnect, and partially, organized chaos. Bonus structure is poorly created, and sales targets are not realistic, or well planned.

    Advice to Management

    Include General Managers in discussions about the local market, and take into consideration the changes which impact any bonus potential.

    I worked at Tervis Tumbler (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Decent starting pay, good benefits package.

    Cons

    Way too much deviousness by upper management and supervisors, lots of office politics.

    Advice to Management

    What I saw when I was there: Lots of favoritism. Better treatment and promotions where given not those that worked hard and performed well but to those that would become personal friends of supervisors. Because of this, career opportunities are extremely limited. If others would speak out about this unfair treatment, upper management not only didn't want to hear it but would find ways to fire those who dared say anything. Also, upper management would do everything possible to get out of paying medical costs of those who suffered injury while on company time. When it comes to the culture and values of the company, there are those there that care but they aren't high up enough to do anything about what's going on. It's also very difficult to get them to work with scheduling for those that want to attend college while employed there. My advice is for the Chairman of the Board, Norbert Donnelly. If by some divine miracle you see this, know that your company used to be a good one. It has been going downhill for a while. If you want to fix it, the first thing needed would be a top-down flush out of the upper management. Anyone who has held high level positions for the last five years or longer needs to go. Please promote people who are already in the company into the vacant positions. It seems like every time someone is brought in from the outside, they make things worse.
