Pros

Benefits and pay were OK.
Most people were pretty nice, with a few exceptions.
Their redesigned retail concept moves them in the right direction.

Cons

Co-op model makes it difficult to implement anything in a uniform manner.
Seemed like career advancement opportunities were limited.
There is a lot of talk about changing the ways they do business, but I'm not sure how committed they are.
Really outdated technology.

Advice to Management

Find a way to cut back expenses on your bi-annual markets and reinvest that money on your logistics and technology infrastructure, which are both in need of additional capital.

    Doesn't Recommend

    Pros

    It is the only reputable millwork company in the greater Greensboro area. It is a relatively well respected and established business amongst it's few competitors.

    Cons

    Physical work environment and infrastructure outdated, counterproductive and unprofessional. Disrespect and disregard for employee efforts and achievements. Employee compensation is not adjusted for inflation/current cost of living. Comprehensive negative atmosphere.

    Advice to Management

    Unfortunately, it is an undeniable truth that no constructive criticism, advice, or suggestion will be heeded by the arrogant and incredulous individuals that run this company. It is my hope that a potential candidate for future employment with this business, considers the regrettable aforementioned statements and avoids the personal and professional cost and capitulation that I have endured as an employee.
