    I have been working at Maui Jim full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    This job offers a great way to travel around the US. You're 100% travel and expected to work 100% of your time. You also receive an awesome discount at Maui Jim and all the perks Maui Jim has to offer

    Cons

    Not compensated fairly with days off when you're home as you mainly travel during the weekends. Management does not seem to trust employees. You will have absolutely NO work life balance

    I worked at Maui Jim part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The work environment is stellar. Every other employee I met was very down to earth and even managers would be eager to help you with a small task. Christmas party was awesome and there are many other opportunities to hang out with coworkers at work functions. Also, the company is charitable and really gives back to the community. Overall great place to work and I highly recommend it to anyone who just needs some... extra money or someone looking for a career.

    Cons

    High up management will implement changes that are difficult when it actually comes to executing them.

    Advice to Management

    More communication between the executives and on the floor management would help.

    Pros

    Casual Work Wear Fun Company Parties Onsite Gym Good Benefits

    Cons

    Terrible Management Highly Political Demotivating Limited Success and Earning Potential Forced Company Mantra

    Advice to Management

    Throwing fun company parties, having a casual work attire, and letting employees drink a beer at their desk is only throwing money at problems. These benefits are a quick shot of addrenaline for employees, but after the party is over, they return to the same problems with their jobs they have been expressing for years. Focus on solving those problems, don't just sweep them under the rug. Millennials in particular... can see past these band-aids. Maui Jim is loosing its reputation as a good employer.

    Pros

    Great culture and benefits.

    Cons

    Promotions are few and far between. Pay isn't great. Spend more money on alcohol and parties than recognizing employees that go above and beyond.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize when you have a hard worker and make it worth it.
