    I have been working at Gohlke Pools full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Work on your own. Flexible hours and schedule, they will work around school schedule and pay very well

    Cons

    Hard work if you like that sort of thing. Long weeks in the summer time but overtime is a plus

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work

    I have been working at Gohlke Pools full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    After working for three separate pool companies; one in Arizona and two here in Texas; Gohlke Pools far exceeds the others! I have almost five years in the swimming pool industry and they were the first to actually train and certify me at the national level. Hard work and reliability are rewarded on an individual basis. I can testify to this after just over a year here with Gohlke Pools.

    Cons

    The cons are what you would expect from a "small" family company that is growing bigger than Denton county!

    Advice to Management

    Embrace the community, whatever you have done for the last fifty years seems to be working!

    Pros

    Working at Gohlke Pools for the past 2 years has been wonderful. Everyone is friendly and willing to help. Since they are a small business, they are able to really focus on your needs as an employee and help you improve. They are also really good at working around school schedules which is important to me, being a college student. They also pay pretty well based-on your performance. Great Company.

    Cons

    The winter months are slow and seem to drag on, but as long as you can keep busy it isnt too bad.

    Advice to Management

    Policies need to be enforced, but it is a working progress.

    I have been working at Gohlke Pools full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Family oriented company that believes you should have great work and home life balance. Flexible scheduling is also a plus. You are always provided with opportunities to learn so you can make yourself more valuable.

    Cons

    Since it is a small company not all the policies and procedures are followed which makes for some tough times.

    Advice to Management

    I am in an upper management position and I think we have to continue working at being the best company we can be.

    Pros

    Make plenty of money
    Work basically on your own time, if you are diligent
    Fun work environment with co-workers

    Cons

    Poor upper level management
    Poor communication between branches of the company
    Long hours if you intend to make a success of yourself in the peak season

    Advice to Management

    Just communicate better. Work towards growing the company outside the confines of Denton. Increase your presence in the industry and in the community of the metroplex, not just in your hometown.
