    Pros

    Advancement opportunities, free on-site gym, open door policy

    Cons

    If you don't like to be busy and work hard...look elsewhere. However, if you do...hard work is always rewarded.

    Advice to Management

    Great atmosphere and always thinking of the employees first. Great gym!! Lots of events for employees monthly to keep engagement and focus on healthy lifestyles.

    I have been working at Barrette Outdoor Living (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Work is very easy to do hours are not that bad

    Cons

    Would rather have drug heads there that goes smokes every ten minutes when supervisor is not there than a hard worker... this is by far the most unorganized factory iv been in.. they can't stand the fact of someone being very respectful but tell them what's going on... and the truth thay don't want to know when higher ups get notifications of what's going on they just let you go and fire you..

    Advice to Management

    When someone is out spoken being respectfully honest about what's going on in nights shift to a supervisor or hr they just let you go and tell you your fired... might need to take heed to what ppl are trying to say instead of just firing them..

    The money and the hours where good

    Everyone there including the higher ups acting like they were in highschool always gossiping and talking about other people , and I feel are a lot of other issues there that need to be delt with by far one of the worst companies I have worked for.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you are hiring mature adults instead of children who like to start drama

    Pros

    Privately held company with good business model.
    Potential for good growth on the company if you have the education and have sought skin to stand the games some others like to play in order to advance.
    Average benefits
    smaller organization that can adapt and reduce red tape.

    Cons

    Does not live up to their values
    Only pays attention to the employees that like to make noise and stand out without credit to themselves.
    Needs to have the Managers involved in the operations and floor and to stop the political game some manager like play.
    Red tape created is a morale killer.

    Advice to Management

    Evaluate who you have in directive positions in reality and listen to what the employees/workers have to say, It will be a different reality.

    Pros

    This is the best place that I have ever worked throughout my career. I have had many opportunities to meet great people in the organization. It is a constant challenge as we grow in our business daily. It is a well balanced place for work/life. Not only does Barrette care about their employees, they care about their families as well.

    Cons

    What can you say that would be considered a "con"?

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work and let's make this the best for all of our staff and customers.

    Pros

    I worked for a company that was purchased by Barrette a few years ago and had some concerns about the transition. Wow was I wrong! It has been a fantastic transition with nothing but positive growth and evolution ever since.

    Cons

    I don't have anything negative of consequence.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing because we're creating a winning culture filled with driven people.
