    Pros

    Crown is a family owned business that keeps families in mind with their employees. Even through the tough economic times, you know that the family feels for every employee and wants to help wherever they can. Crown looks to their current employees before hiring from outside the company. The benefits package was 100% paid by the company a few years ago. Unfortunately, that is no longer the case, but the amount an employee pays for a family is low compared to other companies. We have a generous holiday, vacation and personal leave program in addition to a company match 401K. As an hourly employee, your birthday is considered a paid holiday! All the branches are well run with a professional look and feel but the employees are like family whever you go. Our home office in New Bremen, Ohio is a showplace that makes each employee proud!

    Cons

    There does seem to be a bit of the "who you know" that gets employees promoted in the company, but, any employee that steps up to the plate and does a good job will get the necessary recognition to be "known" by the top members of the management team. Management does not pigeonhole the employees but supports cross training.
    The service side of the branch is not recognized as much as the sales side.
    Some "key" employees in the branches end up with more on their plate than others but the compensation usually makes up for the differences. (but not always)

    Advice to Management

    Don't forget the service and parts departments in the branches. We are all on the same team.
