    Pros

    Good benefits and on site gym.

    Cons

    Too many to list, my most unpleasant employment experience. A once good company now a shell of its former self. But the worst part was the owners, counterfeit in their values and basically everything they would say to do. If the situation suited them your fine, if not, you'll find yourself under the bus before you know it.

    Advice to Management

    Manage

    I have been working at Europa Sports Products full-time

    Pros

    Supportive employees
    Good benefits
    Always a chance to grab swag
    Different Events throughout the Year
    Challenging

    Cons

    Lack of Communication
    No Work/Life Balance
    Difficulty in learning
    Too many requirements and rules from other Vendors
    Strict deadlines

    Advice to Management

    As a whole, everyone is attempting to stay ahead, but it seems everyone runs in circles after one another. There needs to be more clear-cut stipulations, and communication all around. And, there needs to be more balance between work and life as a whole.

    I have been working at Europa Sports Products full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Once you get the hang off what you need to to, no one bothers you.

    Cons

    Management is just a word, there. We have one manager that doesn't know what his really doing there and others that just make one small problem into war with the whole warehouse.

    Advice to Management

    We want you guys to lead us, not manage our lives once you get it threw your head that you guys are no longer responsible for the results, you guys are responsible for the people that are responsible for the results, then we can move forward.

    I worked at Europa Sports Products full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The people that work there are fun and professional, dress code is casual, company was very flexible with work hours and respected family life, especially the 2 owners. That says a lot about this company. They are passionate about their business but work very hard to spend quality time with their families.

    Cons

    I was not challenged enough and not encouraged to take on new projects.

    Advice to Management

    Management was excellent at Europa, but listen to your employees when they may have good ideas and especially when they want to do more and work harder than expected. That's rare these days.

    I worked at Europa Sports Products full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Honestly Ive worked for many companies and the only pro about this company is the coworkers. With out the coworkers sticking together everyday to get the job done i wouldnt wake up to step foot in this place if i didnt have bills to pay.

    Cons

    The management frowns down upon the warehouse workers. They strip you of your overtime for instance, the warehouse workers will work 3 to 4 hours overtime in the beginning of the week and on thursday and friday we will be ask to come in 3 hours later than our set schedule in order for each worker not to get theyre hard earned OT. Management has no appreciation for warehouse workers skills and effort, no bonuses, pay raise, just work and go home. Lonestar distributions was a waaaay better establishment they cared about their employees and they appreciated every worker office and warehouse staff shot out to JOHN HOFFMAN!!. Overall if your looking to work for a warehouse company dont look here. If your white your priviledged to work in the office every warehouse worker is of ethnic back ground am i the only one thats thinks thats a coincidence or we should just quote on quote "THINK IMAGE" smh eff this company.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate your warehouse crew and keep them happy by putting money in their pockets not just a pat on the back because without them your company will fall to the ground literally. Pay more competitive the work it too much for little pay Europa is paying their forklift operators 11 an hour when certified operators should start at 15 smh. Stop being so cheap with your employees or do the work yourself.

    Pros

    Team Members are nice and always helpful

    Cons

    Poor Work/Life balance. No room for advancement. Employees are a number. nothing more nothing less

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to treat your employees and empower them to do want to do the best they can. Training over replacing as an answer will go a long way. If you can't follow your own IMAGE testament don't push it onto everyone who works for you

    Pros

    Free gym. Samples. Causal work environment.

    Cons

    If you aren't in sales, you do not mean anything to the company. Pay is less then competitive (unless you're in sales). There is a limit of 4% on annual raises. With the recent merger, the work load has doubled and staffing numbers have gone down, however, management has decided no additional people will be hired. The company is constantly catching it's tail trying to hit un obtainable sales numbers by months end and this does not allow others to do their job. Budgets are being cut so I highly doubt there will be any promotions or raises in the coming year. Hours aren't great for some departments, career advancement is getting more and more difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Re-evaluate the "Image" you are displaying to employees. Moral is down and the best advise is "everyone is stressed and has a lot of work on their plate"....seriously? Changes need to be made or the employee turnover next year will be awful. Stop being so cheap and invest in the employees. Losing good employees will be more of a headache in the future then spending a little money to keep morale up. Stop making it so apparent that sales rule the world!!!!!!!!!!
