  2. "hard work for low pay"

    I worked at Stonewall Kitchen full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Rejected products are available for free to employees. I can't tell why they were rejected; they look and taste fine to me.

    Cons

    I worked in Order Fulfillment, assembling gift baskets. I stood on a concrete floor for 8 or more hours per day, and my feet and back got so sore that I could hardly walk. The department does not adhere to the ergonomic guidelines that I learned in other jobs; you are required to reach across the table to get what you need, and you have no chance to rest and stretch. There is almost no training on how to do the work. The emphasis is on getting the assembly finished as fast as possible. My arms ache from my shoulders to my fingertips. The pay is just above minimum wage.

    Advice to Management

    Institute proper ergonomic principles to prevent injury. Offer training in how to assemble the gift baskets. Install air conditioning and allow a slower pace of work so that we don't have to work overtime during heat waves.

    I worked at Stonewall Kitchen full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great product discounts, daily access to imperfect products for personal use, excellent emphasis on different department interactions and team building.

    Cons

    The pay is horrible and you're expected to go above and beyond your job description on a daily basis. They entice with bonuses and such that hinge on factors that is basically out of your control. In a company run mostly by women, men are fawned over. Standards for one employee in the same role as yourself is not the standards you are held to. Cliques & Favoritism run rampant.

    Advice to Management

    I don't know where to start.

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

    Pros

    Working at Stonewall Kitchen is like working with your best friends every day. We work hard and play hard. Be prepared for smiles and "Hellos" hundred of times a day, to feel like you are part of a family, part of something greater than you are. To be valued for your strengths and given patience for your weaknesses. To be part of Stonewall Kitchen is to be part of a Creative Community of fun-loving, crazy, people. I am truly honored to be a part of this community and hope that you will be too. :)

    Cons

    The only main con, is there is not too much room for Job advancement.

    I worked at Stonewall Kitchen part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Able to work well with my school schedule. Nice employee discount! Great product so it was fun/easy to help customers.

    Cons

    A little stressful if you'd never been in retail (I hadn't). Just have to get used to using the cash register and working in a retail environment.

    Advice to Management

    None that I can think of.

    Pros

    *Long time dedicated employees (there is a good reason they stay)
    *Employees not afraid to share their knowledge and help newbies
    *Newbies do have a voice (all opinions/knowledge is heard) - we learn from each other
    *Incredibly respectful to one another (everyone is important)
    * Office staff respectfully jumps in to help Production or Warehouse during busy times and is happy to learn and assist.
    *Production and Warehouse Supervisors show sincere appreciation when other departments assist.
    *Team environment to meet shared goals.
    *Great food benefits and discounts
    *Positive atmosphere
    *Work hard but play hard- internal FRESK Committee brings fun to employees all year long
    *Community involvement is important to employees - Community Relations committee brings ongoing community support ideas. Employees can help a little or a lot - I have witnessed overwhelming supporting employees contribute personal time and donations because they truly care (not just for show) - so much caring among staff
    *Management jumps in EVERYWHERE that is needed...No job is "beneath them".
    *Management listens to ideas and is involved with all aspects of the business
    *Employee Referral program
    *I look forward to going to work every day!

    Cons

    More legal holiday time off throughout the year (outside of peak time)

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work of being involved with all staff and learning everyone's names and what they do for the company. It's important to people.

    they give u points against taking a scheduled day off, some of the people who are so called team leaders tend to be a bit to much on attitude and think they are the boss and treats employees like crap,, we are all equal , we are all at this job to do the same thing production, be good to one another dont treat people like they are beneath you, its not right, ive been a boss more than once in my life and i am speaking from lessons learned..
