    I worked at Ariens full-time

    Pros

    Ariens Wholegoods in a great company. Dan Ariens is a great leader. Ariens offers average benefits, Flexible hours, employee purchase program. Meet some great co-workers.

    Cons

    Ariens Specialty Brands in the Janesville location is not going in a good direction. The upper management is very poor and do not know what direction to go or what they want to do. They do not listen to their employees, are exploring areas of business that are a huge risk to the overall business due to the degree of change. Feels like the culture is becoming a back stabbing culture here as they are eliminating positions to try to make up the budget gap.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate with your employees on your decisions you are making as they may have valuable input. Become more competitive with the products carried. There is currently nothing that makes a customer use us compared to another company with the same supplies. Get creative for a way to earn more customers.
