    I have been working at K&K Interiors (More than a year)

    Pros

    K & K is incredibly passionate about product and about taking care of the loyal customers who have been with them for almost 20 years. No other company spends the time and energy that K & K does to make sure the product is fresh, on trend, and price right. Whatever product category they decide to do, they do it right.. Jewelry, Home Décor, Accessories, Baby, Christmas, Fall, Halloween, Easter, Garden.. something for everyone.

    Cons

    Because the showrooms are so busy during shows, it is hard to work with all of the customers who want to see you. You do your best, but there is never enough time to work with them all.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing.. the future is bright!

    Pros

    A lot of nice people

    Cons

    Very poor management.
    Managers play a constant blame game. They bad mouth each other and their employees in front of everyone.
    No satisfaction of completing a project. You will start and stop a project daily with plans of the project changing each day. No one can give you a clear decision.
    Turnover is a constant. Everyone is unhappy and people leave about every 3 months.

    Pros

    beautiful product,
    very family oriented
    there is a lot of nice people work there
    benefits, paid vacations

    Cons

    there is no structure or planning ahead what causes a lot of frustration and delays, huge amount of money wasted, no management- owner macro managing employees with no room for any initiative, a lot of time wasted waiting for instructions, absolutely no appreciation for quality of work, all based on private preferences of the owners- no evaluation, no training, no job description. no team spirit. lots of promises never ever kept, a lot of manipulation.

    Advice to Management

    hire professional management, get structure and job descriptions.

    I worked at K&K Interiors full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The owners were really great, friendly guys. For Christmas, we had an hour paid lunch that was catered for us. When we were super busy, and had to work mandatory they ordered us pizza. Things like that were pretty awesome. The atmosphere was overall pretty friendly.

    Cons

    Although they tell you that "there is no seniority" there, it's a lie. Do NOT expect to get a raise or just because you're the best and hardest worker in the department. Also, I am asthmatic and their ash tray was located immediately outside of the door, so I was walking through a cloud of smoke every time I walk in and out of the building.

    Advice to Management

    Stop promoting incompetent jerks and start paying attention to the people that deserve it.

    Pros

    Offers overtime most of the year.
    Most of the people are friendly.
    Known for quality product.
    Understanding of needing time off for appointments, etc.

    Cons

    Lack of communication, growth opportunities, and fairness.
    Lack of proper compensation structure.
    Hard for temps to get hired in, if not impossible.
    No 401K or any other benefits other than some PTO after you have been there awhile and lousy medical and dental.
    Unpredictable, management drops the ball too often.

    Advice to Management

    Treat all employees the same. Hire temps in after 3 to 6 months if they are doing a good job. Open the lines of communication to all employees.

    Pros

    Beautiful showrooms. Beautiful product. The CEO is very charismatic and talented. Customers love the product and its easy to sell.

    Cons

    Extremely hostile management team the lack of communication between them causes constant chaos. . They do not respect one another. HR department is lacking in every way imaginable incompetent and rude . Formerly repped exclusively by an in house only sales team, the seasoned company employees are hostile towards the newly established outside sales team. The micro management is unbearable. No matter how hard you work, they will find a way not pay you. The account activation policy will take you 2 years to overcome. Lots of managers but no one can scratch their own ear without CEO's ok. It causes chaos. Constant chaos. As anyone in the industry about the NSM and they will tell yo to run. Heed the warning.

    Advice to Management

    Let territories managers manage their territories. Drop the daily tattletale report it's just tacky. Communicate with each other and work out your differences. Let go of the paranoia and speculation. Learn how to work together in a professional respectful manner. If you have questions about someone's performance ask them, dont send spies to come back with secret pictures but no answers. The company has too much too offer this industry to be stifled by a reputation of fear and hysterics. Be better than that.
