    I have been working at Truth Hardware full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good starting wages and plenty of opportunities for advancement. Flexible with family and life. Small town location with big city easy access.

    Cons

    Raises are small because of economy and the business is owned by an investment group that tends to make unpopular changes at times. The raise and review system needs work. Some that were in positions at an entry level haven't gotten the financial gain they should be getting for doing the job they do when having to obsorb the work of lost resources.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of the entry level starters when they need the financial gain for the work load and the job they are doing. The accross the board raises everyone gets doesn't work.


  2. "Terrible culture, misguided management, no direction."

    I have been working at Truth Hardware full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Average benefits provided, pay is decent if you're willing to accept long hours and weekends. I really can't think of any more.

    Cons

    Rigid management, long hours with no recognition/credit, miniscule training, zero development. Miserable environment.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your people, follow through with what you say, treat people like you want them to stick around.

  3. "The company was good, but the work itself was monotonous and unrewarding."

    I worked at Truth Hardware full-time

    Pros

    New employees seem really excited to gain full-time employment with Truth. Starting pay rates inspire the excitement but it is short lived.

    Cons

    The company is shaky, they constantly go into pay freezes (or at-least this is the case for the production workers), profit sharing is non-existent, and they seem to struggle with running a smooth lean manufacturing concept.

    Advice to Management

    The bottom level employees (production workers) are not always the problem, there is a lot of passing the blame off onto these employees. Try walking through the plants during all shifts (not just first shift) and talk to the employees, there is a lot of insight and ideas to be gained in doing this.
