    I have been working at Criterion Brock full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Overall, my experience has been good. Smaller company with room to grow and create your own niche business. Your hard work and work ethic is directly associated to your pay check.

    Cons

    Smaller company with growing pains. I feel the computer program is and building of bids takes too much of my time.

    Advice to Management

    Improve computer program to reduce time on computer so sales rep can be in front of customers more. A little more support from business admin position would help reduce computer time and improve face time with customers

    Pros

    There were some great, invested coworkers.

    Cons

    Morale was terrible. Senior Staff were never on the same page.

    Advice to Management

    Set realistic sales plans, and spend to them. Don't overspend and then be surprised that profits aren't where they should be.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Criterion Brock full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Easy to move up from entry level position.

    Cons

    Many problems in upper management. There is a reason for the HUGE turnover. Low pay, long hours. Most employees have not had a wage increase in years. Unqualified people hired for many jobs. They have branch manager with no flooring experience. The list is long my friends

    Advice to Management

    Hire some people with actual flooring experience. There is more to an installation manager than just scheduling jobs!

    I worked at Criterion Brock full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Really nice people, great co workers.

    Cons

    Management's lack of respect for co workers. Low salaries and no interest by Management to retain the best and brightest. Lip service made to support staff, but all talk and no action.

    Advice to Management

    Sales is not the indicator of growth, profit is. Work with a low profit margin isn't profitable. Start looking at the bottom line after job is complete and make policy based on that.

    I worked at Criterion Brock full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Friendly co-workers
    Decent benefits
    Good location
    Positive changes have been attempted within the last couple years

    Cons

    Poor management
    Poor work environment
    Executives ignore non-sales staff
    The corporate structure/process needs to be re-worked (from the ground up if possible)
    High turn over rate
    Multiple absenteeism

    Advice to Management

    Treat (all) employees as assets not expenses. The morale is terrible and needs to be addressed ASAP if you want to stop losing employees.

    Pros

    Great opportunity for sales professionals, easy to grow territory as marketshare is on the lower end of things, Regional support from national account reps

    Cons

    Lots of paperwork, hard to accomidate customer special requests or custom orders for popular brands, company' overall low inventory strucuture

    Advice to Management

    Try on different shoes, focus on market share before expansion into new markets, make support staff step up and fulfill orders and maximize time of field sales by letting them sell and spend less time on reports and paperwork

    Pros

    Very nice people from top to bottom. Opportunity for good compensation for Account Exec job. I was consistently told to err on the side of customer service and always do the right thing.

    Cons

    I honestly cannot think of any. I'm no longer with the company for personal reasons, nothing to do with the company and would consider working there again and would refer friends.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!
