    I have been working at Tervis Tumbler full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The people are a great part of this company. Able to travel to cool cities and help open new stores - albeit volunteer basis. Growing company.

    Cons

    Inconsistent salaries for management and staff. Very sales driven - as it should be.

    I worked at Tervis Tumbler full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Tervis offers many great benefits like profit sharing, medical, dental, vision, lunch for employees working Saturday overtime, and there is plenty of room for growth.

    Cons

    Training and development of the belt structure is not great. Takes a very long time to move up. Positions that should not be rotated are rotated. Teamwork is not a common practice in all areas. Workload is not evenly distributed. Processes change from shift to shift making jobs that should be simple very difficult. Work instructions are not available for all processes. Some leads show favortism. Program used in production is very slow. Tools needed to do a job are not always readily available. Every order becomes a Rush because of poor scheduling or processes that hold up production. Seasonal employees are more loyal to the Company than full time employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create strong teams on the production floor by keeping the same group of people together. Create teams based on skills, knowledge, and even the teams out with people that want to learn. Assign trainers/team leads to teams instead of areas to keep trainers up to speed on all aspects of production and a consistent lead to develop employees. Have trainers run the area when lead is out instead of purple belt. Make filling orders the number 1 responsibility in the fill room (instead of managing issues). Keep 1 team in fill room to help control inventory. Require processes to be documented before rolling them out to the production floor. Fix issues instead of creating work arounds to hide issues. Stop allowing sales people to Rush orders because of their commissions.

    I worked at Tervis Tumbler part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Work responsibilities were very easy.

    Cons

    Store level management can destroy your work ethic and experiences working there.
    Store management can change your work environment through favoritism, unprofessional actions, and outright lies. The location where I worked, an old school work ethic was frowned upon, and the fraternity/sorority like atmosphere was acceptable and enforced. Backstabbing was encouraged.
    Pay unsatisfactory.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Monitor your store level manager better.
    Listen when there is a complaint.
    Respond to it.

    I worked at Tervis Tumbler as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    The work environment is fresh and innovative. Everyone is really open and friendly but also very motivated to get their jobs done effectively. I like that the work environment is spacious and neatly organized. They have an open door policy which is wonderful. You are known as a person and not a number.

    Cons

    Desk space can be a bit tight . But usually they take care of any needs that you have.

    I worked at Tervis Tumbler full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The environment, the people, the management, growth potential. This place has it all, nothing is left out. The ability to move up and around and in any way you can think of is all right in this one place. the friendly and knowledgeable staff are there to help any and everyone achieve their own personal goals for success which helps drive the company.

    Cons

    There are really no cons, unless you don't like fast-paced non-stop action filled days with twists and turns.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep allowing the individuals who work for you the open ability to talk about what they need to. The approachable level of every single manager / director at Tervis is astounding.
