    I have been working at Avalon Flooring part-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I worked for 3 companies in my 42 years in retail and feel Avalon is at the top of the list. It is a large company with a small company feel. All employees no matter what their title are supportive of each other and contribute to each others success. They invest in their associates through training and they offer employer benefits packages that are comparative to all good companies.

    Cons

    Just like any retail position working hours can be demanding. You have to be there when customers are and that can mean working weekends and nights.

    Advice to Management

    Avalon is in great position. They have many talented associates that are committed to growing the brand. Continue to give them the opportunity for continued growth within this company.

    I worked at Avalon Flooring full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Today is my last day working at Avalon and I truly enjoyed my 6 years here and will miss it. I am only leaving because I'm moving south due to my husband's job change. I have to say that the people I worked with at the KOP location, management and all the way up to the HR department and the wonderful CEO of this company are exceptional. The continual training surpasses anywhere I have ever worked. The company also cares about it's employees. They also care about their customer's experience and satisfaction. Yes, you have to work hard. But the harder, or smarter, you work the more you are rewarded. Thank you Avalon, for all you have done for me.

    Cons

    They are trying really hard to update their computers. At this point they are still having trouble with one system talking to the other. It can be frustrating. But their working on it.

    I have been working at Avalon Flooring full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    As a female in the "business" world and more notably in an industry dominated by males- the experience at Avalon Flooring for all employees, but more specifically for women in management is top-notch.

    Avalon has truly cultivated an environment of respect and encouragement through and through. They offer tremendous opportunities for growth and development for those who truly wish to succeed which is why most of the people who work here have been here for years! It's an organization where everyone pulls their own weight and understands the value of teamwork and therefore you are rewarded for a job well done and hard work is recognized by all levels of management.

    The Executive Leadership Team is one of the most approachable and more importantly seen group I have encountered in my career. They take a genuine interest in the development of the each individual in the company not only on a professional level, but also on a personal level. Avalon is truly - family-friendly and supports the work-life balance that so many of us strive for day in and day out

    The President & CEO, Maryanne is an inspiration for women in business. A perfect example of someone who worked hard for her family over the years climbing the proverbial ladder and eventually shattering the glass ceiling paving the way for many of us looking to do the same. She's relatable and understands how difficult it is to manage work, family and personal wellness and supports all employees, male & female in achieving what success looks like for them.

     By far one of the best places I have worked and I am looking forward to many more years.

    Cons

    Nothing major is a con. Its like any workplace - somedays are harder than others and thats really based on the type of work you do.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest in the staff - its noticed by all and we appreciate it.

    I have been working at Avalon Flooring full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Health Care and it's a job.

    Cons

    I would like to start out by saying i think the Upper class Management "Linda, Jim & Maryanne" need to look into on how the Directors of Operations runs the Warehouse. The management in the warehouse isn't any better. They will cover something up just to save their own job. They need to be responsible for the actions they take. They don't care about safety or your well being. If you bring something to Management about safety. You will be told don't worry about it. It has will be handled. Worry about what your doing. This attitude put your life at risk to get the job done. I just hope Linda, Jim & Maryanne look into it before things gets to out of hand. You think things will change, But it will stay the same.

    On another note. People who have worked for the company for a couple years get overlooked by favoritism for new employees. Safety isn't the overall goal. It's the Directors of Operations way or the Highway. Even if you done nothing wrong and was in the right.

    Advice to Management

    I would still be working for your company if i wasn't mistreated by management.

    Pros

    They have some wonderful employees

    Cons

    They treat the nice people, the people who have moral with distaste. The sales associated get treated like yesterday's trash while the Warehouse staff are treated even worse.

    Advice to Management

    The management loves to have affairs with the sales associates, I guess it makes them feel empowered.

    Pros

    You get a sense that this is the greener side. I enjoy coming to work everyday, helping our customers and co-workers. It's a great feeling when you know you have helped someone and I get that every day here. The benefits are plenty, a company that really cares about your well being. From gym reimbursement to free health screening to a pension. Avalon is a career company

    Cons

    When I think of something that is really worth putting here I will.

    Advice to Management

    Try to learn something new everyday to make this company the best and reflect on something that did or did not work.

    I have been working at Avalon Flooring full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I have been with Avalon for over a decade and have experienced everything that goes with being involved in good times and tough times (like a recession) One thing that has made a difference is the fact that I always felt that i hold value as an employee. No matter what position I held in the company, my input, my opinions, my concerns, my questions were always met with the same level of respect and attention. I have always felt like I am a part of a family and that Avalon Flooring has been the most consistent in providing me a sense of security. Security in knowing that the direction the company has gone in always seems to be the right one. Security in knowing that the decisions made from the very top down always have the best interests of the employees at the core. It is rare to say that you feel truly happy and safe with any job but I have been able to do that for the last 10+ years.

    Avalon Flooring is a great company that I was very lucky to find and be a part of.
    Great leadership
    Great direction
    Great vision
    Great people
    Great training

    Cons

    Is a huge selection of products a Con?
    Maybe when you first start to learn all the products and details that go along but the training never ends and that helps you become more knowledgeable than the competition
    (which becomes obvious when you talk to customers and hear horror stories about other flooring companies) .

    It's a never-ending learning process no matter how old you are there are new things everyday to learn from. Remember your mistakes and focus on them .Your supervisors words and advice will only make you a better employee.
    One of my favorite quotes is "Experience is what you gain by not having it when you need it"

    Advice to Management

    I would say don't change a thing but that is not what Avalon Flooring does. Adapt and come out better, that is what Avalon does best and I have seen the proof time an time again.
