    Pros

    We have taken great strides in improving our overall picking and packing. We have vastly improved in the daily direct ship to customers in a timely manner.

    Cons

    Daily challenges as far as not knowing what our daily volume is going to be due to the fact that we take orders all day

    Pros

    A nice friendly place to Work. The atmosphere is laid back and the supervisors are helpful.

    Cons

    There is not a lot of opportunities to be promoted and they have a salary cap for their long time employees.

    Advice to Management

    Create more opportunities for growth within the company. There isn't a lot of room to be promoted. And there is a salary cap if you've been there for a certain amount of years.

    I have been working at Diamond Comic full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There seems to be potential here, they use automated voice controlled picking which is somewhat modern. I think they could do better if they improved employee relations.

    Cons

    This is by far the most unorganized place I have ever worked for. The product in the mode and on the floor is strewn everywhere and management doesn't seem to care. All they seem to care about is how much they can get out with no regard to quality.

    Advice to Management

    I would say management needs to work on communicating better with employees. From what I experienced in the 5 months I worked there, my department manager never once spoke directly to me.

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

    Pros

    It's a fun, "somewhat" relaxing environment at times. Talking to a manager, lead, supervisor about concerns is easy. If you are into comics or pop culture items, you do have the option of a nice discount too. Overall, there is a team effort going on so you do feel somewhat a part of something.

    Cons

    Pay...Pay...Pay! Basically, at this location, you are hired on as a temp at first. I was told before then what i would be making. I then found out that other people arriving after me, who are doing much simpler jobs were making more! (Not by much) but they did have the option of picking between a few numbers for pay.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to your employees more. Communication is key. I talk to my manager as much as possible with any questions or concerns but i do hear people talking about things that i believe they are just misunderstanding because they arent being spoken to.

    I worked at Diamond Comic full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Unique industry, great customers. Some good management, some bad. If you actually work hard, they'll recognize it more often than not (this doesn't mean sit around on the internet half the day THINKING you worked hard...).

    Cons

    $. Before the job market crash, annual raises were great and they even rewarded employees for excellent work with mid year raises. After that though, it was rare to see a cent extra in your paycheck. The company without a doubt fell on harder times, but lots of doubts how bad it really was. Especially when the owner is still living very very large.

    Advice to Management

    Update your hardware and software. No reason to run on Windows 97 still, and even more ancient programs.
