    "Good company, nice pay, plenty of overtime"

    Star Star Star Star Star

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    The company is thriving. If you are a hard working dedicated employee, there is room for growth. They have plenty of work, which mean they have plenty of O.T. The hourly rate is good, and they have good medical insurance. Company is clean and follows all OSHA rules and regulations

    Cons

    Some don't like the O.T., you have to like to make money. They have the work, the rest is up to you. They need reliable employee willing to work, which is hard to find.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the open communication with your employees. If I ever move back into the area, I'm coming back

    I have been working at Merritt Woodwork full-time

    Pros

    Great relaxed work environment, but tight deadlines in the retail industry provide challenge. Hours are wonderful, from 7 am to 3:30 pm. Over time paid at time and half is generally available.

    Cons

    Benefits could be better: my main concerns are health insurance and vacation. Being fairly new to the retail industry as a company I find the short turn around times cause some panic, and panic causes confusions. It requires a lot of patience and learning to be prepared to give account for your decisions during the drawing process.

    Advice to Management

    Systematically organize all the resources available to the drafting department. Organize hardware offering and standard usage. Get the entire team to draw consistently by implementing firmer drafting standards. It is a great company and job, but we need a single vision of process and best practices to follow.

    I worked at Merritt Woodwork full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    If you want to obtain sleep deprivation this place will lead to it due to long hours, if you want to be an angry indivdual due to lack of pay, respect from management, low wages this place will lead to it

    Cons

    60 plus work hours a week, forced overtime to include mandatory Saturdays with somtimes the option to also work Sundays. Low wages, some individuals had received less than a dollar raise (better than nothing). Lack of leadership from management, management has been deceitful at times.

    Advice to Management

    Stop using "Due to the economy there will be no raises."

    Pros

    Eric Jerome was a excellent supervisor and the employees really made me fell welcome.

    Cons

    The company has a history of misleading potential employees into believing they would make it through their probationary period even though they have no intent on keeping you more than 10 weeks. Beware...

    Advice to Management

    Be Honest when recruiting.

    I worked at Merritt Woodwork full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pay comes every week without fail and is accurate, working hours have been constant and predictable. The air quality for a wood shop is great, Most of the workers are great craftsman and were some of the best people I have ever worked with.

    Cons

    50 to 60 hrs a week ...every weak is too much. wages are far below work expectations. The style of management uses fear, and manipulation to control employees. There is no advancement or program within this organization for growth of employees, kind of like a dead end .. Manufacturing processes are not stable every one in low to mid range management changes standards procedures at any time. Respect courtesy and professionalism is not present neither is leadership,

    Advice to Management

    Get off your ego trip, go back to school learn the difference between management and leadership. You are missing out on the most valuable resources you will ever see, and most will never return.
