    I worked at TNT Fireworks part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great boss! Need to get out of the warehouse. The clients are crazy but fun when you get to know them.

    Cons

    Some inter-fighting between management. This made it difficult because you would run out of product only to find out that it was taken by a different section of the warehouse.

    Advice to Management

    Have someone who oversees all levels of fireworks from safe and sane up to class C. This will decrease the conflicts between management.

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

    Pros

    Ever-changing work. With only 2 seasons per year it's a quick change from production, shipping, returns, rework, and start it all over again.

    Cons

    Managers are expected to work long hours and be able to overcome lots of obstacles. TNT is the largest at what they do, therefore there are always a lot of unique problems that other year-round companies don't have.

    Advice to Management

    Better pay / better communication

    I worked at TNT Fireworks full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Management contributes great time and attention to the Associates which are in their line of responsibility
    Open door policy is in fact a True "open door policy"
    Still privately held by Founding Family: The Anderson Family have extremely high Values, Integrity, and Character and current Executive Management started truly in the warehouses loading trucks, sweeping floors, working on the production rooms, conducting damaged goods burn offs, actually delivering orders to customers and has held all low level positions, most mid-level positions and has done so in all 5 business types (retail, wholesale, fundraising, in store, parking lot) .

    The Management of the company is loyal, and expects commitment, honesty in all affairs and activities conducted on Behalf of the company.

    Cons

    Level of commitment expectancy may be a bit unrealistic at some levels .
