    Pros

    Co-workers a plus. Good people for the most part. Good for first time job seekers. Well rounded hard working employees. Middle management flexible in most cases.

    Cons

    Some upper management lacks direction. Poor employee morale. Micromanagement in certain areas hinder efficiency of other departments.

    Advice to Management

    Have faith in your people and get rid of dead weight. Let the people who know their jobs assist in growing the company. If you add to a persons responsibilities, compensate them! Acknowledge a job well done.

    Pros

    Small business with relaxed environment. The office complex is nice. The location is central to public transportation and highway.

    The ownership group is unstable with the transition from the older generation to the younger generation having a lot of difficulties within the group.

    Advice to Management

    Trust your experienced employees to make key decisions that will help to ensure future success. Use the internet more and get away from the outdated ways of doing business.

    I worked at Atd American Company full-time

    Pros

    Get some experience working in an office while learning to be "thick skinned". (After all, it's a wholesale company.)

    Cons

    Nasty co-workers and supervisors, owners always back the supervisor, not the entry-level employee.

    Advice to Management

    I hope your company has changed it's ways since I worked there in 1990.

    I worked at Atd American Company full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    nice building, close to the jenkintown train station

    Cons

    Too many family members that would not be able to hold a job anywhere else in the world. Some have major anger issues. many long time employees also couldn' be hired anywhere. Very very angry pissy people work here. Very very petty. Some people are out and out BULLIES and they are permitted to do so because they are RELATED!! not fair

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of your dead wood family members. Alos many of your long time employess are very unhappy and talk bad about the company behing family members backs. Start drug testing.

    Former Employee - Customer Service Representative in Wyncote, PA

    Pros

    It was nice to have to maintain a relationship w/ the customer instead of answer the phone, answer question, and the call was done.

    Cons

    It was a fairly large company felt like a number. EVeryone there seemed very clique-y. More so than any other job I've had.

    Advice to Management

    It was a good place to work I liked it there. I felt that I could have had more guidance with the suspenses.

    I have been working at Atd American Company full-time

    Pros

    I worked at ATD American for many years. I enjoyed my time there, and thought I'd be here until I retired. Lots of politics, and management is partial. If you show them you want to work then you were an employ of value

    Cons

    Company sold their furniture division, said they were trying to take care of current employees, but in the end didn't.
