    I worked at DAVACO part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I am great with working independently, so it was no problem for me. Training was excellent, and a manager was available for questions anytime. A great company to work for.

    Cons

    No cons that I can think of.

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

    Pros

    Lots of work,travel the country,better than average pay to start,and home for the holidays,Thanksgiving and Christmas.

    Cons

    Away from family with all the travel,lack of communication on projects and travel between field employees and management. Must have patience to deal with change of plans at a moments notice and stay with others employees or a co-worker day in and day out.

    Advice to Management

    assign a PM to employees and have production and performance reviews every few months and post them for others to see so employees can strive to be on top and the weak unproductive ones can be weeded out.

  3. "Do not recommend"

    I worked at DAVACO part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible schedule and good brands - Nike, Birkenstock.

    Cons

    Terrible HR and management that do not care at all for their employees. Hours/accounts change month to month with no notice. When traveling you share a room with a stranger in a cheap, dirty hotel. unbelievable!!

    I expect they will be out of business soon.

    Advice to Management

    You're loosing great people because of insane travel policies just trying to save a dollar. The install teams stay in cheap, unsafe hotels because you want the reward points, when $20 more would put us in a decent hotel near the job site.

    I have been working at DAVACO full-time

    Pros

    Hired me back right away!

    Cons

    I have worked for this company for 3 years straight. I got rehired but I'm getting lower wages than the new people which I train!
    I have been a merchandiser for years and know what I'm doing. It is just not fair training this new people and knowing that they get paid better wages than me.

    Advice to Management

    Be considerate about that hardworking individual that help build Davaco. through the years.
    It's simply called "humanity".

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

    Pros

    There are some but too many cons destroy the pros. Would be great if upper mgt listened

    Cons

    Much downtime tells you are going back out in a week turns out to be weeks and then expects you to drop everything when they want you back out

    Advice to Management

    No one from upper ever sees what the good workers do and dont listen to frustration that can save company money by seeing who actually works and who actually does nothing

    Paid from the time you walk out your front door to the tome you walk back in.

    Advice to Management

    If you are going to fire somebody you better have proof of any wrong doing. Do just make something up and call it gospel.
