    I have been working at E&E full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    As an employee of this company for 10+ years, the reviews here do not do justice for this company. Grumpy ex-employees offered their pigeonhole perspective which does not truly represent the company’s corporate culture. The company has evolved and transitioned into a key home textile supplier to all major retail chains as well as e-commerce retailers. We were awarded “Vendor of the Year” by Walmart, Target and Wayfair. My review is based on working in headquarters located in Fremont, California. We have regional sales office and showrooms in New York, Roswell Georgia, Bentonville Arkansas, and Plano Texas. Many sales VPs and national sales managers work from home office. There are two distribution centers in California and one in Georgia for domestic shipping and e-commerce fulfillment centers. We currently have over 200 employees working in the headquarters. We embrace cultural diversity and higher percentage of female co-workers (in production, HR, Design and Accounting) than male co-workers (Sales, design & IT dept).
    Below are the key points of working ethics for this company:
    • TEAMWORK – it takes a village to build and create success. If you feel you are the #1 Super Star that company cannot survive without you…..MOVE ON! Some grumpy ex-employees do not see this point.
    • RAPID GROWTH – core teams of sales, design & product development, production, logistics, demand forecast that made us stand out from our competitors. Every element is important to get the big ship’s wheel move forward. Employees need to have ability to adapt the rapid pace and challenges in a small to mid-size company.
    • MULTI-CULTURAL – While the founder and CEO of the company is Chinese, but many Senior VPs and management team are Asian, Caucasian or Hispanics. Based on their ability and leadership skills, you can climb through the corporate ladder without gender bias. We are a zero-tolerance company on sexual harassment.
    • RESULT DRIVEN – Depending on your position (except warehouse positons), working from home is an option. We offer flexible hours, but the primary goal is to get the job done!
    EMPLOYEE PERKS
    • New employee welcome kit – water bottle, jute company bag
    • 100% insurance premium paid on employee after probation
    • Company contributes 3% toward 401K when employee qualifies to vest in
    • 50% discount on company’s retail site
    • Starbucks or Peet’s coffee on premise
    • Vending machine selling snacks and beverage at cost
    • Annual employee sales on samples and discontinued products
    • Summer BBQ and Xmas party

    Cons

    • Kitchen space is crowded and busy for microwave/oven use during lunch hours. There are 4 outdoor patio tables available in bldg. 1. Another kitchen area is set up in bldg. 2.
    • Lack of communication on personnel changes. I guess this takes a lot of time and effort to create company newsletter on regular basis.
    • Need company directory or department functions within company network on shared drive.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at E&E (Fremont, CA) in October 2015.

    Interview

    They just asked me a few simple questions and send me a home test. But no one considers my international background, and desired salary. After I got offer, low salary they offered really surprised me ... I wanted to negotiate with HR and she consented it, however no one replied my email any more...
