I have been working at Conair full-time

Pros

Annual raises, flexible, good cafeteria, company store, co-workers, ample parking, convenient location, free coffee and tea. Overall it's not a bad environment. Great to gain experience.

Cons

No windows basically anywhere so it has a bit of a "prison" feel, low base salary, "down" periods that get boring, work can get tedious, many older employees (only a handful of young people)

Advice to Management

Have an elevator installed for handicapped employees, reward exemplary performance more

    I worked at Conair part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good people, $0.25/hr pay raise every quarter, good benefits. Christmas bonus. They will get you forklift certified if you work hard.

    Cons

    They only hire from a temporary pool of Apple One employees. Don't work 2nd shift if you want to get hired on, because they will give your openings to 1st shift temps.

    Advice to Management

    Good management, nothing really to say.

    Pros

    You work with some excellent people and forge many friendships that is very unique for a company.
    Get the right boss/coworkers, you can learn a lot because there isn't protocol for everything you do, great to dip your toes into a career.
    Entrepreneurial atmosphere allowing you to do more than your title states.
    9-5 company with good health benefits.

    Cons

    Salary leaves much to be desired and very difficult to get it to increase over time.
    There isn't a lot of structure to the company: you don't know if you'll get promoted next year or in the next 6 years.
    Depending on the division one works in, this company is not a meritocracy by any means.
    Work/life balance, depending on position, is not good.

    Advice to Management

    Need more structure. Reward based on hard work (verbally and in salary). Communication within departments and between divisions is not good, should be more collaborative.
