    I worked at Chem-Dry full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Family Environment. Take care of their employees with great benefits, PTO, flexible schedule if necessary. Driven by goals. If you meet or exceed goals in the company, they reward you for those.

    Cons

    Needs more structured environment and processes. Lack communication between departments.

    Advice to Management

    Team building exercises for the whole company would help communication and morale.

    I worked at Chem-Dry full-time

    Pros

    Good culture, great people to work with. Company is a cash cow if ran correctly and as such has the funds to expand in departments and programs when necessary

    Cons

    Company was bought out around 2012 and the person who purchased the company made himself the new CEO, fired half the staff and moved those jobs to Nashville because that's where he lived. Culture has changed from a mom and pop friendly "family" to a booze train at conventions. Company always paid their bills in 30 days and now that's gone to crap.

    Advice to Management

    The company once was highly respected, honest and had dignity. That's gone out the window with the new CEO.

    "Be very, very careful with Chem-Dry / HRI"

    I worked at Chem-Dry full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Like many small companies, everyone gets to wear a lot of hats. That can mean a lot of exposure and involvement, as well as a lot of autonomy to set up systems and procedures as you see fit. Close interaction between technical, operational, and sales/marketing leads to a lot of learning opportunities. Many franchisees are absolutely wonderful people, and helping them can be very rewarding. HRI was once a great place to work in Cache Valley, and many of the core elements that once made it a good environment are still there.

    Cons

    Be prepared for some ethical challenges in how the company treats employees, vendors, and customers (franchisees). In nearly every role in the company, you will frequently have to deal with dissatisfied and angry customers and franchisees - and often their complaints are completely legitimate. When I was there, there was a core "in-crowd" that guarded the companies' stories carefully, and if you didn't belong to that crowd, or questioned anyone's approach, good luck. Be prepared to be ostracized to some degree if you are not of the right culture. HRI is currently owned by a venture capital group (Baird Capital), and the typical short ownership cycle makes long-term business development initiatives very challenging. The organization has been suffering a lot of turnover in 2014, both in Logan and at the Nashville location, and there are reasons.

    Advice to Management

    .....for what it's worth: Recent business results speak for themselves. There are tremendous morale issues both within HRI and within your customer network, and many of these issues go hand-in-hand with one another and impact business results. Compensation and benefits are adequate for a company this size, but the company values and culture (not the mission statement) need some serious attention.
