    I have been working at Kitchen Magic full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    This is a family owned business, that is a leader in the industry of Refacing cabinets. (also new cabinetry). The owners REALLY care about their product and the customers that hire us to complete their projects. Quality of the work is great, customer feedback is almost always positive.

    Cons

    Cannot really think of a negative.
    From a Sales side, you can work long hours and evenings... but that is what this industry is all about. If you are good, you will make good money.

    Advice to Management

    You all have done everything you said you would do and are a pleasure to work for.

    I have been working at Kitchen Magic full-time

    Pros

    The owners and management are so incompetent that you can essentially do whatever you want (not that that's a good thing). Occasionally the owners buy lunch or dinner for the office staff or provide free t-shirts or ice cream. Lots of smoke breaks. A handful of excellent employees who essentially keep the company running.

    Cons

    Horribly out of date policies. "Family owned" by a family who has no actual business experience. Pay is very low for the job. They will hire 2 or 3 young inexperienced kids for $10 an hour to do a job poorly rather than hire 1 person for a respectable salary to do a job properly. Company policies make it impossible to serve the customer, and employees are forced to lie and apologize to defend the "brand". Outdated technology. Poor health insurance coverage (starts at $90/month for an individual policy with $6,500 deductible). No matching 401(k). Recently cut vacation days. No direct deposit. Recent change to paycheck design makes them impossible to be cashed, ownership refuses to reissue checks. No annual bonuses. No profit sharing. Dogs in office frequently relieve themselves on the carpet, bark, and beg for food.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees. Try to match industry standard compensation for positions. Add direct deposit and improve employee benefits. Increase accountability. Solve problems rather than just brushing them under the rug.

    I have been working at Kitchen Magic full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Family company that treats everyone like family, both customers and employees. Quality products and an amazing team that executes the projects with the efficiency of a Swiss watch. Always keeps promises to customers and sometimes does outrageous and unnecessary things to please them. Keeps their promises to customers and employees. Management is always looking for ways to improve the customer and employee experience. Very much embraces change in technology and looks to be at the forefront of whatever trend will make the company better. Never afraid to bring on new products and expand our customer offering, even if at times these experiments do not work out - but mostly the do and the company is all the better for it.

    Cons

    There is no direct deposit. While the health insurance plan is good the company contribution is too small. People can exploit some of their systems at the expense of other employees and it is tolerated a bit too much at times.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work, keep trying to make Kitchen Magic better every day as you always do.

    Pros

    Everyone knows each other and they treat employees as family. Many have been here a very long time so turn over is low. Customer service is outstanding.

    Cons

    Because the turn over is low the influx of new ideas is also low. Many are promoted from within so they haven't had a lot of outside experience with other companies that could help grow this one. Company is a little old fashioned in their processes.

    Advice to Management

    At least take some advice from outside consultants and start direct deposit, and rethink rewarding long time employees with at least more vacation time or better benefits.
