    Pros

    Just the co-workers only and that's it

    Cons

    infested with rats, rat feces and urine, hard work for less pay. There is a incentive pay in place, but it's hard to reach due to the production rate.

    Advice to Management

    ask every single employee what problem needs to be resolved and take it to heart

    Pros

    Management expectations, company culture, and growth initiatives have all undergone a major revamp with John Hartmann at the helm. The real top down mentality has done a 180 from demanding results to rewarding change and progressive growth opportunities while maintaining the proper level of stewardship. That is to say, it has encouraged associates to make improvements so long as you’re not throwing money out the door in doing so! The company has undergone a large project in order to remain relevant for years to come and senior management has always and continues to inspire those working underneath each respective department. I’d say there is room to grow within the company structure as I have personally experienced such opportunity. If you push yourself forward, understand the big picture impacts when making decisions, and plan accordingly you will experience success at True Value.

    Cons

    In order to experience success in any company it’s important to move past those who deadpan answer all questions with the obligatory response “well that’s the way it’s always been done?!”. No doubt you’ve heard it or even possibly said it yourself but this is something I’ve seen dwindle away recently with change, however, it’s still worth mentioning. Another item to note is having everyone on the same page for goals and sometimes task completion can be hard to accomplish. This could be a product of the sheer size of a company like True Value but it’s definitely something too much time is spent on executing while there could be more valuable responsibilities getting accomplished.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to inform, educate, and empower your teams to drive change in order to experience growth. The moves being made today are setting the table for the future of this established company and it makes us all excited to be helping create The New True Value!
