    I worked at Draper's And Damon's full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    They had great benefits Health insurance and pto

    Cons

    After being in business for over 80 years the company that bought this business decided to shut all the stores. 80% of the employees were 65+ years old. Those employees faces challenges trying to find a new job.

    Advice to Management

    The higher ups only cared about themselves and the bottom dollar. Shame on you for taking this business and throwing it away

    I have been working at Draper's And Damon's full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Corporate staff is very friendly and team oriented. Fun and lively atmosphere at appropriate times. Serious when needed. Wins are celebrated as a team. Management works to improve areas of concern from employee survey results. Appropriate casual dress is ok. Generous PTO and good benefits. Brand new office location is open concept with plenty of amenities.

    Cons

    Some departments report to the parent company and not local CEO which creates extra steps and sticky politics.

    Advice to Management

    Some of the corporate reviews on here are written by former employees who are no longer there for a reason. Please take them with a grain of salt. For mgmt, All departments should report to local leaders who visit more than once or twice per year.

    I worked at Draper's And Damon's full-time

    Pros

    Flexible hours and friendly team members

    Cons

    There are a few issues within the company that make this a great place to work. Unfortunately many people have been at the company in management positions that would never survive outside of this environment (lack of business/industry knowledge). The PD department should be shut down - leaders are more focused on checking their social media than actually working. Bring your "brat" into work day was a disaster - and... should never be accepted.

    Advice to Management

    Overall haul many of the leaders that have been there for far too long to benefit from new knowledge.

    Pros

    Great place to work if you like polyester.

    Cons

    Sad and Depressing place to work. So many good people have been laid off or quit. The business failed to change with the times and the current management has no clue how to transform the company.

    Advice to Management

    Put us out of our misery.

    I worked at Draper's And Damon's full-time

    Pros

    In general, the people are nice.

    Cons

    The office environment itself is depressing. They keep half of the lights off.

    Advice to Management

    Many have been with the company for a very long time and don't know anything else. Don't be afraid to accept new ideas from people who have been other places.
