    I have been working at Draper's And Damon's full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    payroll to support one on one customer service, regular customer base, small company, fun environment, great hours

    Cons

    POS system needs upgrading, no local advertising to help build customer base, all new customers need to come from outreach which strains managers time

    Advice to Management

    upgrade POS, upgrade catalog to reflect the customer you want to bring in to the stores

    I have been working at Draper's And Damon's full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Used to be a fun, energetic company but no more. People are stressed beyond limits and the new leadership and owners are a bad joke.

    Cons

    Like many of the other reviews mentioned they disrespect employees and work us to death for very low pay. New upper level management are either unqualified for their job or just plain nasty to work with. New ownership is a disaster.

    Advice to Management

    I haven't got a clue how to fix the mess that has been created. I am worried it is impossible to undies all the damage done. The people in charge now need to be removed, they are a nothing but finger pointers that just don't get it.

    I worked at Draper's And Damon's full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    People were pleasant to work with.

    Cons

    The managers are lazy, they print papers and call you to pick them up from the printer. This is why they are so big. I worked directly with a manager that spent most of her time on social media or purchasing online.

    Advice to Management

    Check on your managers time management and what they do during work hours

    I have been working at Draper's And Damon's full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Casual atmosphere and very laid back environment.

    Cons

    There was NO training and NO respect for the work that was done. There was also no opportunity to grow within the company. "Lifers" aside, they give no regard for anyone else and HR has a tendency to treat you like you are the problem when issues are presented.

    Advice to Management

    Encouragement and growth opportunities are important!!! No one wants a dead-end job.

    Pros

    The customers you work with are darling in any single way. It's been a pleasure to work with people over 60's

    Cons

    No respect from upper management. Very low pay, no room for promotion. They rather bring somebody new to pay with nothing than to promote an existing employee and give her/him more

    Advice to Management

    Better learn that paying $2.00 more an experienced employee brings you more business than winning on pay for somebody new. Better win a faithful employee for years than losing him/her forever.
