    Pros

    The president, Jeff Filley, is a wonderful human being. Behr has a great open door policy. If you have a concern or a praise, you can talk directly with Jeff. He's a great leader because he cares about the company and every team member. He has great vision regarding where to lead the company successfully. Many of the team members have been with the company for over 20 years; that speaks volumes about the company and the leadership. People care about doing their job to the best of their ability because doing the right thing makes a difference. At this company there is actually good job security.

    Cons

    There is a lot of pressure to get it done now! Sometimes that causes reactive rather than proactive behavior.

    Advice to Management

    Remember that work/life balance thing?

    Pros

    The hours, you are able to work early in the morning

    Cons

    every week you have reviews and every little thing is picked apart. The management needs improvement and you have to give details to customers but if you give too much you are written up for it and too little same thing. Low pay and they don't tell you that you are really seasonal.

    Advice to Management

    Reviews, i agree with but you need to make them simple. understand that as long as the customer is happy and you have provided information than it should be good. To picky and stressful.
