    "showroom sales"

    StarStarStarStarStar
      Former Employee - Showroom Sales in Anaheim, CA

      I worked at Bedrosians for more than a year

      Pros

      Money is good if you hustle

      Cons

      A lot of family members of upper management work there. There is major favoritism and when you ask for a raise they will tell you that you make commission.

      I'm sorry to hear of your negative experience with our company. You are correct that Bedrosians is a family-run business. The company was started in 1948 by my grandfather. Since that time, his children and their children have taken initiatives to grow and expand the business. ...

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

      Pros

      Professional company, good benefits, and family atmosphere. I have been with Bedrosians for almost a year now and hope to be for many more. I have had nothing but good experiences so far, great management and friendly coworkers all around. Learning a lot about the tle industry.

      Cons

      Not too many cons yet, I am still rather new to the tile industry so still a lot to learn. Holidays are not paid but at least I have them off, coming from the hospitality industry, its nice to not have to work nights and holidays, so I guess its not too bad.

      Advice to Management

      Stay being positive, friendly and motivating, it keeps up the morale. My regional manager is very friendly and makes you feel part of the family. Branch manager is very hard working and leads by example, makes it very easy to work with and makes me want to work hard for them everyday.

      I worked at Bedrosians full-time

      Pros

      Coworkers were great, but no one is left because they were fired or smart enough to quit. Flexible with time off.

      Cons

      Unorganized, high turnover, no paid holidays, no growth potential, underpaid for the work expected, limited training

      Advice to Management

      When you have good people that go above and beyond what is expected, you need to recognize that and give them an opportunity for growth so you can keep a worthwhile staff and minimize turnover.

      I have been working at Bedrosians full-time

      Pros

      The job is easy and they pay enough to get you to stay even though you hate the company culture.

      Cons

      The company is disorganized from the very top. Standards and procedures change every couple months and are not consistent between branches located in the same regions. It's confusing to employees so it's no wonder customers are confused also. If you call 2 stores 40 miles apart you will get two different answers, you will probably different answers by people working in the same store. There is close to ZERO training when...

      Great co workers. Decent products, Period

      Cons

      Horrible management, They hire managers that do not understand the Tile & Stone business or marketplaces. They need to keep their human resources committed and consistent. Must keep your employees motivated to continue to produce results. Extremely disorganized. No Holidays at all for their employees; they are expected to work holidays, weekends, even Sundays. People are not robots They need to understand their employees...

      If you have genuine concerns it would serve you better to contact HR instead of writing on Glassdoor. Please use the proper forum for notifying us of complaints.

      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

      With current regional mgmt on east coast there is no potential to increase sales or income. If that "big" salary you start with doesn't make you happy, better look elsewhere. Only pro was co-workers, although almost all have left for better jobs.

      Cons

      Poor management makes this job a daily struggle. If you like constantly apologizing for poor service and product, this job is for you...and no you can't fix it. Management is as bad as you will find anywhere, unethical and unsupportive. Be ready to work extra hours, weekends, Holidays etc, as retail is the main focus here. (Yes, you will be competing with your customers for the business). Starting salary/income will be...

      Advice to Management

      Your employees are your best assets...stop the constant berating and try a compliment every now and then. Your people hate coming to work every day...it should be your goal to rectify that and empower them instead of the daily whipping.
