    I have been working at Bedrosians full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    After one year on the job I am still loving working at Bedrosians Tile and Stone as an outside sales representative. The management listens to the employees and values their feedback highly. This company is on the cutting edge offering the newest trends in the tile and stone supply business. Customer satisfaction is at the heart of the company's strategy to grow and to be the best distributor in their field. The company...

    I worked at Bedrosians full-time

    Pros

    Good representation and marketing of trending products.

    Cons

    Management lacks experience and more importantly direction. Constant change in leadership by cycling through CEO's, Regional & Branch managers. Employees don't receive recognition, are motivated by fear of losing their job and feel like a number. Policies constantly changed and favoritism was prevalent.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to coach and value your employees. Good employees are not replaceable especially in this market. Look to promote within before hiring upper management with virtually zero industry experience.

    I worked at Bedrosians full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    They supply free water to all employees and customers.

    Cons

    I’ve been in the industry for over 15 years and I can confidently say this was one of the worst companies I have ever worked for. They burn through employees with little regard to the hard work they put in and the atmosphere is unfriendly and toxic. Most of the upper management is family who are under qualified for the positions. The have little to no direction and refuse to listen to their employees even though all locations...

    I have been working at Bedrosians full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Forward thinking and prosperous company. Great product line, and vision. The stores are beautifully done and you can certainly tell the care and time they put into each one.

    Cons

    Growing pains. They are reaching for the stars and that takes a lot of time and effort so I feel as an employee I am honored to be a part of a company of this stature but must remain patient for the positive growth.

    Advice to Management

    Remain positive, patient and keep up the great work.

    I have been working at Bedrosians full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Some of the co-workes were really cool. Some of the product is ok but mostly junk. Can't think of anymore pros.

    Cons

    All management are on power trips. They talk to people like they're trash. Most of the branch managers have no training or people skill. There is no training at all. Sink or swim for new employees. With there low pay and treating people bad Bedrosians has made there company a stepping stone to your next job. I have been talked to more then once like a dog. From my experience all management are snakes and will not think...

    I worked at Bedrosians

    Pros

    A few good people who actually care about what goes on. Company is from California so lots of stores and a lot of people know about them out here

    Cons

    The handful of people that care are overshadowed by a management and ownership that suck the life out of them. Lots and lots and lots of turn-over. I guess it makes for a nice place to meet new people since there's always fresh faces showing up? Pay is entry level with 4 or 5 people (company wide) making a nice pay check. If you want to use this as a boot camp prior to another tile job you found the right place! Just...

    Advice to Management

    I would leave advice for "management" but they would scoff at the idea of taking advice and then find some reason as to why I am wrong. Here it goes anyways: get your staff the tools they need to be successful - good products, products that are available, and don't steal from them when YOUR products are unsatisfactory.

    Pros

    You have a job while trying to get another one.

    Cons

    Inside sales get a commission that creates unhealthy atmosphere that competes against the outside staff to win over builder-fabricator loyalty or bypass them to sell directly to the Retail customer which the other parties loss out. NOT A FUNCTIONAL SETUP SUCCESS!!

    Advice to Management

    Cut out commissions pay a store bonus would create a heather environment.

    I have been working at Bedrosians full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The company is growing and the products are cutting edge! The company is family owned and operated and is thriving. I really love working for a company that cares about their employees. I have never felt micro-managed. There is definitely a ton of growth opportunity in sales as the sky is the limit!

    Cons

    Training could be better- but I know they have been working on improving this area.

    I worked at Bedrosians

    Pros

    Other sales reps are great to work with. Some branches will help out tremendously.

    Cons

    Hours are tough as they expect 10 plus hours a day from you. Very hard to move up and they expect sales right away even though you are new. Family run the company and any outside opinion is shot down. Pay doesn't reflect cost of living in areas of the country, and they tend to mess up a lot HR paper work. Everyday is a grind.

    Advice to Management

    Have a outside consulting team come in and restructure the company. To many problems and family members should be objective to outside opinions in the company.
