    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    -Great motivational leadership
    -Lots of training resources
    -Profit Sharing
    -Managers are given a tremendous amount of freedom
    -Very stable company

    Cons

    Every store is different and a direct reflection of it's manager. Some stores are upbeat and lively, others are downright oppressive. Profit sharing is often used as a wage supplement rather than a bonus, so wages are kept low at times. The flat corporate structure means there can be very little room for advancement.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Much of the division of Hajoca that I work in is based on people who start working in the warehouse and work their way up within the company, so all the way up to the CEO, they are people who understand the business and what it's like to work at nearly every level of the company. In good years the profit sharing can be a significant boost to your income. This is the most loyal company I've ever been involved with; several employees have been here 20+ years or more.

    Cons

    The company has a very flat organization structure, so there is definitely a ceiling as far as promotions go (several people have gone as far as they can go within seven years). Education is of little value to the company and shows in some of the outdated ways that things are done. Several people that have been here for so long fight against change. If you work in purchasing, credit, or anywhere outside of an actual storefront where you are selling or delivering materials to customers, you will be viewed, compensated, and treated, as a tragic necessity to do business.

    Advice to Management

    Value your purchasing more. Right now every branch's number one complaint is our purchasing department so hire more qualified people even if it costs more and invest in the training and technology necessary to improve efficiency in that department.
