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

    Pros

    Hayneedle is a stable, yet growing company. They pride themselves on having a casual / non-corporate culture and providing a transparent work environment. Shorts and flip-flops are the norm during the summer and the executives hold town hall meetings monthly to allow for questions. Management has been engaged with broadening employee's skills and career pathing. Those who stick around and put in the work are rewarded....

    We'll be switching to Walmart's benefits next year, nice to find out if there are advantages.

    Pros

    Casual work environment, collaborative minds, and a positive buzz around the office. Summer Hours are a plus for corporate employees.

    Cons

    The only cons are the headaches that come with an acquisition. This will iron out as the company progresses and I am confident that it will succeed. The only bad part about the company is the pay. I have worked with the company for almost 3 years and they are notorious for increasing your workload without increasing your pay. They will word a "promotion" as positive, but in all reality it is just a transition into...

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees what they are worth. Nothing is more frustrating than to feel as though you are not paid enough for the job you do. Take care of your current employees before focusing on hiring mass amounts of new people.

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

    Pros

    Great work environment, friendly managers and supervisors, great work ethic from all employees, benefits, flexibility. The scheduling team knows that life happens, and you can ask for time off if something comes up.

    Cons

    Part time shifts aren't as flexible as I'd like, but they cater more toward the working adult, not the working college student, so it makes sense why.

    I have been working at Hayneedle for more than a year

    Pros

    As many have already mentioned, the work environment is great. Everyone here is so nice and willing to help out and it's inspiring how passionate every one is about what they are doing. It doesn't have the "keep quiet and keep to yourself" attitude as a lot office jobs do. It's a very fast-moving, proactive company so I never dread going to work in the morning. There are many cross-functional projects so you aren't isolated...

    Casual work environment, strong executive leadership, intelligent, hard-working co-workers. Hayneedle really is a great place to work. People here have a passion for what they do and work hard. At the same time, there is a strong emphasis on maintaining a good work/life balance and company culture allows for the flexibility to make your life outside of work a priority. Leadership is strong here as well, and they place...

    Cons

    I don't have many negatives on my list about Hayneedle. As with any job, salary and benefits could be better. Also, if you can't or don't want to function in a fast-paced work environment, Hayneedle is probably not the place for you.
