    Pros

    Honestly can't think of any.

    Cons

    Pay, employee treatment, communication, management

    Advice to Management

    Before we were acquired by Wal-Mart, we were a good place to work. This place is truly awful now. Do not get a job here. Management has absolutely no respect for the regular employees, and doesn't communicate anything to them. You can't share your concerns with anyone without fear of retribution, and even if you get the opportunity to share your concerns, they brush them off and do nothing about it. They care little for...

    I have been working at Hayneedle full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Fun work, fun product. This used to be a great place to work but after being acquired by Jet and now Walmart, the culture has disappeared and we are barely a cog in the wheel

    Cons

    terrible culture that favors only top schools and MBAs. No one is valued beyond their education and youth

    Advice to Management

    Rip off the bandaid now and dismantle this company quickly, it's painful to be here and watch

    I worked at Hayneedle full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Work at home is great. Well sorta

    Cons

    Can’t move up. Workforce controls everything. Tell lies when hired. Was supposed to be email agent. Was actually a phone agent. QA’s are a joke. If you forget 1 tiny thing you are docked majorly. They do nothing for WAH ppl. CC gets everything. Food parties. Gifts. If you want them you have to go in for the day. Some of the leads are rude as hell. One in particular. She Doesn’t want to do her job!!! Gets mad. I pray...

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees and their concerns. Show true praise. Offer real advances. We just can’t move up. HR needs to also do their jobs. Takes forever to hear back!!

    I have been working at Hayneedle full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The culture on the floor is one the best I have experienced, if you just want to come into an entry level position and work for a few months then this is for you, The people at the bottom are great and very happy.

    Cons

    You will be lied to by management and hiring. I don't say that because I have been scorned I say that because there is an extreme lack of transparency and if you are promised inward movement once you start you have been told a lie. This company let 40 plus seasonal hires go via email 5 weeks early in the most impersonal way possible. Some people even had there schedules changed with no prior notification. If you need...

    Advice to Management

    From the mouth of a hiring manager "internal experience will always far outweigh external experience" Do not keep putting your workers with the most potential down. The retention rate is too low. Also if you intend for a meeting to be set in a certain tone, don't call it a conversation call it a meeting. Transparency is key and our management lack it. Feed back works two ways be willing to except upward feed back

    Pros

    Hayneedle has been such an amazing environment to work in , specifically because of the people that you are surrounded by. I would highly recommend working here to anyone!

    Cons

    Typical retail/tech company requires you to work some hours outside of the normal business hours around holiday, but that's just what you should expect in this industry!
