    I worked at Avalon Flooring full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    They have an excellent on-boarding training program, as well as a close-knit group of coworkers. We all supported each other and it made going in to work a positive experience. Whenever I had a question or needed assistance, I knew who to go to, and we all had fun!

    Cons

    There is some travel involved with the training, but it is worth it for the material learned.

      I have been working at Avalon Flooring full-time

      Pros

      There aren't many places these days where executive leadership takes an interest in the everyday lives of the employees. And Avalon is the real deal. They really strive to make our workplace one that people want to come to. Gone are the days of "this is the way we've always done it" and they embrace that with every aspect of the company (Processes, Benefits, etc). Yes, there are always negatives to every job - i mean...

      I worked at Avalon Flooring full-time for more than 5 years

      Pros

      Hmmm... that's a tough one

      Cons

      Too numerous to list, but stress and headaches come to mind when thinking about working here.

      Advice to Management

      Stop asking people to write positive reviews. They either feel compromised or they get "let go" if they don't.

      Thank you for your review. We recently reviewed our compensation for our warehouse staff and implemented longevity bonuses. It is just one small way that we can thank our hard-working employees for their tenure. We appreciate the time worked here at Avalon.

        I worked at Avalon Flooring full-time for less than a year

        Pros

        Seems like a great place to work. Company execs even made time to personally welcome me, and they have a stable, profitable enterprise.

        Cons

        Left good career for management position I was perfect for and let go after a month without cause or explanation. Was never late, went above and beyond etc.. Company wouldn't even give me the courtesy of a reason

        Advice to Management

        Communicate more effectively and be more transparent. Lack of professionalism is not a good look for an otherwise successful company.
