Approves of CEO

Pros

Family atmosphere. The CEO knows everyone by first name. She makes a point of saying hello to and good morning to everyone she sees. There is a good sense of commradere and coworkers are friendly and supportive. There is good communication of overall goals and overall strategy of the organization. There is a huge diverse talent pool at Levy. CEO, Carol Kloster believes on emphasizing and recognizing all successes in the organization.

Cons

Strategy and implementation seem to change with whichever way the wind is blowing. Many good programs and inspirational initiatives have been started, however, there seems to be a failure in follow through and commitment from all levels of management. For example, all employees were trained on the 7 habits of becoming an effective manager. However, there was no reinforcement of the ideas or follow ups after the 3 day training seminars. A great deal of time and money spent on training with no visible results.

Advice to Management

Follow through on initiatives. Challenge management to work with frontline and corporate staff to identify our challenges and our attempts to address them. What are our successes? What are our failures? What have we learned from both?

    Pros

    The part time merchandiser position offers flexible hours, independent working conditions, and has good long term employment potential. Decent pay when compared with similiar merchadising roles.

    Cons

    There is not always enough time allotted for store assignments. The need to enter reports, inventories, etc... at home while not being compensated is a problem. Sometimes store management expects more than what falls into the merchandiser role. No review/raise after over a year of employment.

    Advice to Management

    Compensate employees for time spent off the clock entering perpetual inventories, filling out questionnaires, reading through the piles of paperwork that come to our homes every week. Offer reviews and raises after a reasonable period of time.


  2. "Low stress job with a degree of satisfaction at the end of the day."

    Pros

    Levy Home Entertainment is a great company to work for. Just do your job and do it right and management leaves you to your task. Independent working environment, work your own hours. If you have a passion for reading and like to organize and display, the Levybooks division is a great choice for employment.

    Cons

    Yearly raise less than 25 cents per hour. The "Suppose to be scenarios" (layouts, planograms, etc.) usually don't materialize due to errors in product shipments or lack of products. Not for the perfectionist, frustrating. Some heavy lifting.

    Advice to Management

    Use of technology needs improvement. Ordering system is somewhat antiquated.
