    I have been working at Renfro Corporation full-time

    Pros

    You get a discount on socks (that fall apart)

    Cons

    You'll get to work with a bunch of uneducated, underqualified, overpaid people who devalue their employees (often employees of color). Excuses for not paying people adequately for their experience are numerous, while ridiculously overpaid management keeps getting raises. While the CEO is off firing half the company, ask how much he is making, or how many living rooms his house has. Management is complicit in keeping people down. Toxic, toxic, toxic

    I worked at Renfro Corporation full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The company is very relaxed in its dress code, and very open to employee management of time. Indoor walking track and gym are very nice.

    Cons

    The company has been in a constant evolution for 4-5 years. The VP's are constantly changing. As an employee, your job is never on stable ground. It's based on whether or not you fit into that VP's personal direction, not what you can contribute to the company. They hardly stay longer than a few years, then move on. The company overall tries to hire quality people, but then does not listen to them after they are hired. The company outsources jobs that can be done internally, instead of listening to how more could be achieved with less. Often this results in downsizing of the staff. Unstable. Additionally, benefits are twice as expensive as any other company in the area. Finally, there are almost no windows in the entire building. A very dark place to work! Ignore the promises they offer. Analyze the job and the work environment for what it is. It will not change. The warning signs were there when I interviewed, but I chose to ignore them. A decision I regret.

    I have been working at Renfro Corporation full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    4% 401k matching, annual bonus (usually around 4% of annual salary)

    Cons

    After January layoffs, many people are having to perform multiple job roles which oftentimes far exceed the title and therefore salary of the employee. The CEO told management that there would be no promotions or raises for employees filling in for higher level positions or taking on increased work loads. As a result many people have been handing in their two weeks notice. Why stick around when you’re doing three jobs and have been told upfront you won’t be getting a raise?
