      I worked at Stark Carpet full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      I had to leave my position at Stark for personal/family circumstances and I was incredibly sad to go. Since my very first day at Stark I was treated only with kindness and acceptance. The management does a great job at making all employees feel celebrated by announcing birthdays and anniversaries, throwing baby showers, etc. I always felt comfortable reaching out to management and coworkers at various levels with questions...

      Cons

      I truly do not have any cons for Stark as far as the workplace environment or job duties. One thing I would change would be the addition of 401K matching in the benefits package.

      Advice to Management

      Keep on implementing the core values and showing the employees how important and cared for they are, so far it is working great.

        I worked at Stark Carpet for more than 20 years

        Pros

        I worked with some nice people.

        Cons

        I worked for Stark Carpet for over 20 years. They threw me out into the street . On my "exit interview", I asked the HR guy if he liked his job. He had the nerve to tell me he loved it. Then he told me to leave and "say goodbye to nobody-we will walk you to the door!" I was not the only one they threw out like trash.

        Advice to Management

        Treat your loyal employees like humans, not trash.
