    I have been working at Stonhard full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Freedom to set schedule . Make decisions on opportunities you want to chase. Good pay and benefits.

    Cons

    Every position in the company is spread thin. Territory manager, sale adminstrator, managers and so on seem to be overwhelmed on a daily basis. Many positions lacking experience and with high turnover it's just a continuing cycle of chaos.

    Advice to Management

    More crew development less product development. The biggest shortfalls come from inadequate crew experience or attention to details.

    I have been working at Stonhard full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The company as a whole is nice to work for. Nice benefits, holidays and perks.

    Cons

    Sales Administration is not a good place to be. They have managed to cram 4-5 different positions into one.

    Advice to Management

    Train Supervisors on how to be human and team leader and not dictators. They should not resort to putting others down to make themselves look better.

    Pros

    Not many but, you will learn the industry by trial and error. You technically set your own schedule. Most other epoxy companies are filled with ex-Stonhard employees. You will learn what not to do while employed with Stonhard for the average tenure of 1 year before you quit.

    Cons

    Pyramid scheme. You are expected to do 2-3 "forecasts" a week committing to jobs that you haven't sold, installed or invoiced. Plan on working 60-80 hours a week, every holiday and every weekend. Extremely high employee turnover. 100% commission, Management will approve the payout of your commission if and when they want to, very arbitrary. Company actively markets to customers that they manufacture AND install their products. This is not the case, Stonhard sub-contracts all of their labor just like every other manufacturer, installers are NOT employees. Installation issues as well as warranties are mostly left to territory managers to handle and pay for. Most repairs or re-installations are 80% out of pocket. Upper management is morally and ethically suspect, Avoid this company.

    Advice to Management

    Go to church

    I worked at Stonhard full-time

    Pros

    Good place to, but must work hard to make good money.

    Cons

    Crews are spread thin some times and getting a good installer to install the floors the right way is key to being able to do the job and make things run smooth.

    Advice to Management

    Higher local installation crews to install floors...

    I have been working at Stonhard full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great company with lots of opportunities for growth. Company has excellent benefits and values employees. There are many people that stay around for a long time.

    Cons

    The company has a very financial focus and everything is focused on monthly quotas. RPM puts tremendous pressure for monthly results and it can cloud the long term view of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to value the employees that you do have and strive to give opporutnities to individuals that excel. It should not matter how long you have been with the company it is all about rewarding the performers.

    I have been working at Stonhard full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Stonhard is a small company here in Fort Wane, IN; but also a part of a larger conglomerate RPG. So advantages of working for a small company with benefits of a larger company.
    The employees are all great to work with.

    Cons

    As with any company, you have your peak and down times. The peak times keep us very busy (which I happen to like), down times are a must; that's when we usually get caught up on things we don't have time for.

    Advice to Management

    Need to see management more, in an active role with the employees.
