    I have been working at F.H. Furr full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Amazing benefits, great pay, amazing managers. I’ve only been with this company for a few months and I never want to leave. They’re so nice, caring and friendly. Furr takes care of their employees. They do a lot of recognition for their employees.

    Cons

    Honestly the only con is when I have to drive down to Manassas for meetings every once in a while but it’s not a huge deal.

    Advice to Management

    I don’t have any advice. Just to keep being a great company to work for.

    I worked at F.H. Furr full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    -Weekly Pay -Thorough Training -Good job to gain some office experience

    Cons

    -Coworkers and team leads trying to get into management like to micromanage work and refuse to do a lot of it themselves. Double standards -Cliques among management and supervision, the environment can feel very hostile when a coworker who is friends with a manager has a personal agenda. Some of the people there like to isolate others for arbitrary reasons.. And I got along with mostly everyone there, I just watched...

    I worked at F.H. Furr full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Potential to earn big bucks and steady work. Management is easy to work with

    Cons

    Shady, favoritism is a huge part of daily functions and job dispersement and the on going training they say they do is well a lie. When they say that it means they are training employees to be a better salesmen, con artist not so much a technician or skills. Sales technicians make nothing if a job is not sold, even if one was out all day

    Advice to Management

    Be more committed to your employees not the sale of a job. TRAIN the technicians not motivate them to be dishonest or take advantage of customers

    January 21, 2019Human Resources Manager

    I appreciate the feedback that you've left for us regarding our management team and the fact that we compensate well and provide year-round work, but I disagree with the insinuation that we don't provide on-going training and that we encourage technicians to be dishonest or take advantage ...

      I have been working at F.H. Furr full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Paycheck is every week, family owned and mostly operated, & always room to grow!

      Cons

      I have not had any bad experiences thus far.

      Thanks for taking time to leave us this feedback! Definitely a nice thing to not have to worry about a paycheck going through. I've heard some horror stories about bouncing checks from people we've interviewed and I can't imagine working a place where consistent paychecks aren't ...

      I worked at F.H. Furr full-time for more than 9 years

      Pros

      They take care of their employees with great pay and benefits. Year round work and most of the technicians are very knowledgeable. I worked there for 10 years I wouldn't work for another company. Left when I hurt my back, no fault of theirs, and moved on to a different career. My experience there was fantastic. I liked my coworkers and my management.

      Cons

      Salesman don't do their jobs correctly. It's tough to walk into a job and tell a customer that we can't do what the salesman said because he made a mistake. They will work you to death, but I was so used to it that it didn't bother me. They don't promote front within often and the ones they do find aren't good. Also, only family will run the company. That's not how it should be, just cause they're family doesn't mean...

      I worked at F.H. Furr full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      In early October 2017 without warning I became critically ill. I underwent major life saving surgery and spent 75 days in the hospital. I was obviously unable to work and I qualified for the companies Short Term Disabily benefit. This allowed my wife and I to pay of our bills on time and took the worry out of being in the hospital and unable to provide for my family. Once home the company Health Plan covered nursing...

      Competitive pay, awesome coworkers, the owners care about their employees

      Cons

      sometimes changes happen without your input

      Advice to Management

      There is a daily huddle with the department managers. Maybe, once a week, combine the important points from those meetings and put them into a weekly newsletter of some sort. Also, include EVERYONE on upcoming changes and get feedback from the people that it may or may not affect.
