    I have been working at Dufresne Spencer Group full-time

    Pros

    I've loved Dufresne since I was hired. My coworkers are absolutely amazing and my managers are all kind as well. The work is consistently busy but not too hard, and upper management doesn't seem to be stingy at all with raises. I plan to be there for a long time.

    Cons

    Nothing's stood out to me as negative in my time there.

    Pros

    Dufresne is a really good name to build experience with at any stage of your career. They've been great to work for, but more so, it's a name that other employers take very seriously when they see it on a resume. I wouldn't ever tell someone to pass up an opportunity to work there.

    Cons

    I haven't noticed any negatives.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Dufresne Spencer Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Some good supportive people but most are not in leadership ranks and play along with drinking the kool-aid.

    Cons

    Any person with reasonable sense of self respect/worth would be advised to skip any opportunity with this group unless mindless unabated sales growth is your focus. First red flag was having to settle for a lower salary than my stated minimum. Rushed in with no real orientation or support and systematically set up to fail with unreasonable expectations.

    Advice to Management

    Honesty, humility and support are “Christ-like” tenets, not the narcissistic egoism you demonstrate. Practice what you preach while putting your privilege aside and you might learn to grow in a positive direction.

    I have been working at Dufresne Spencer Group full-time

    Pros

    It's clear that Dufresne makes employee morale a huge focus. The benefits packages are great, but I was even more surprised by all the rewards, prizes and just plain-out fun events they put on for us. I always feel encouraged to do my best, because I never know what cool way management is going to reward our efforts.

    Cons

    Standards are pretty high, that's all I can share so far.

    Former Employee - Visual Presentations Manager 
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Dufresne Spencer Group full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Loved my visual team members.

    Cons

    Visuals are overworked and underpaid. Visual are responsible for a lot more than visual merchandising. They are responsible for tagging, inventory preparation and reconciling, maintain painting the walls of the store, maintain trash out side of the store AS WELL AS WATERING PLANTS , receiving in accessories, making sure everything is barcoded, corporate walks with reps, visual walk throughs with regional visual manager,...

    Advice to Management

    Visual Presentations Manager responsibilities need to be narrowed down to maintain the overall look of the store. A VPM can not be responsible for all of this and be paid under what they are worth. The consequences of being a visual is not equal to the sales staff. What I mean by this, the sales staff does not get in trouble for not doing their job but a Visual gets punished off of what the sales staff is doing. Making...
