I worked at Ewing full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Advancement opportunities, at least for low-level employees. Interaction with management, employees get input for how stores run.

Cons

Benefits are not great, long hours, there's always the sense that if management can squeeze another minute of productivity out of you and pay you for a minute less that they'll take it.

Advice to Management

There's a line where too much efficiency leads to high turnover, you should find that line.

    I have been working at Ewing full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Ewing seems to invest highly in new hires.
    Starting pay is decent,and raises have been regular.
    Potential for advancement is good
    Work is light, out of the elements, and relatively low stress. I like the environment

    Cons

    Many branch personnel seem jaded for some reason.
    The antiquated green screen software has a long learning curve. This need serious updating.
    Branch managers seem to get a lot dumped on their plate.
    Branches seem to be competing against each other so they can reach their numbers.
    Buyers stock the stores, not managers. There can be a disconnect between what we're selling and what buyers stock us with.

    Advice to Management

    On the whole,I think ewing is headed in the right direction.

    I have been working at Ewing full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Education, when I came to Ewing I had no previous experience in the green industry. Ewing will teach you what you need to know and then some. Family owned, you will be looked at as a member of their extended family not a number. Fun, it can be stressful but fun is in this companies DNA, all you need to do is embrace it.

    Cons

    Every company has Cons, Ewing is no different. I choose to focus on the Pros and do my best to make every day FUN.
