I have been working at J & J Sales full-time (More than a year)
It's never the same thing twice. There is a lot of opportunity to advance and there is always something to learn.
The management needs to be worked on.
Advice to Management
Don't speak so condescending to employees and instead of pointing the finger and calling everyone out individually make it more of a team effort and include yourself in the changes you are wanting to make. Instead of an "I" or "You" mentality it should be a "We" mentality. No one person in the office/warehouse makes this place run.
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at J & J Sales (Corpus Christi, TX) in January 2012.
The hiring and interview process was pretty relaxed. I started before corporate was moved to Houston so my interview was actually conducted by the owner/president of the company. It was a very informal interview and there was only one. Once the interview was complete they offered me the position within 4 hours. I could tell from the beginning this was a very go-with-the-flow office and as long as you showed up and did a good job you would be rewarded. There was no micromanagement from my initial impression and until recently there wasn't. I enjoyed interviewing because I was able to ask questions as well as listen to the knowledge the owner had to share about the industry. I was able to walk around the office and warehouse and get a feel if this was something I could handle. I enjoyed the interview and I didn't feel as if I were being interrogated.
Slight negotiation. Within 4 hours they offered me the position and I asked for a higher salary, they met the demands easily.
