    Former Employee - Supply Department in Strongsville, OH

    I worked at darice full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Raises are given out to those who work hard to earn them. Company shows appreciation for hard work and dedication. Health Insurance offered after first 90 days on the job. 401K offered after first 90 days on the job.

    Cons

    Warehouse area is not very clean. Management can be arrogant at times to the point where they aren't afraid to point out that they are the ones above you and that you are lower than them. Some supervisors are short tempered.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to level more with the employees under you. Try to realize that they are the ones on the front lines.

    I worked at darice full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Benefits, vacation time, easy work

    Cons

    The pay is terrible, coworkers are equally terrible. There is no advancement here if you are female, males are clearly favored here. Certain employees keep their jobs for insane reasons. Do not work here if you don't have to.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Tell people to mind their own business, stop favoritism, and take complaints seriously.

    I have been working at darice

    Pros

    Some awsome co-workers to work with. Some parts of management are nice to work under. Easy-going place to work at some times of the year.

    Cons

    Private company. Will not provide info on profits made for the year to distribute profit sharing to employees. I love this quote from H.R. "if it goes for one, it goes for all". but in reallity that means they will curry favoritism for some employees whom have a mental disabillity, or are trying to finish school, but WILL NOT do it for everyone. Thats FACT! Unless your name is on the building, you're not gonna make a living wage.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    These are dead-end jobs. Help the people who've broken their backs for you to help provide themselves a better future through colligiate education.

    I have been working at darice

    Pros

    Very easy work that does not take a lot of effort so it is what you make of it but nothing to kill your self over

    Cons

    the work is the same thing every day... you look at the same boxes every day and horrible music everyday

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    quit and allow people that know how to run a warehouse. dont let people walk all over you and most importantly stop letting slackers get away with murder there are plenty of people that are willing to work that will do twice the work for half the pay and show up on time and everyday with out a problem....
