Suggestions for improvement

  • Learn to manage millennial and take our feedback. Keep things consistent, if one employee is able to work from home everyone else should be able to. Get a new GM who isn't pushing the millennial generation out the door, with an office of 50+ employees there shouldn't be only 6 millennials.

What I like about the company

I have met some great people and now consider them my family, since my family doesn't live here. Some leadership is willing to listen and help me grow in my career. The technology that they provide us with is pretty much up to date. Great company culture with work life balance. Every holiday is celebrated here with a company meal and entertainment. Overall, very comfortable work environment and work/life balance make it a great company to work for.

What I dislike about the company

Salaries are lower then national average. Local leadership does not know how to manage the millennial generation. They are not willing to listen to feedback that the younger generation brings to the table. Very stuck in the ""This is the way we have always done it"" thought process. Holding on to many workers that are retirement age, so this defers the upper movement the younger generation is trying to do. When employees make moves to stay within the company but take a different job, GM acts like a child and don't speak to you.

Company Culture

There was a lot of a lack of communication between the company itself and territory teams

Support from management

Changes happen while in the middle of projects if materials we needed didn't get to us prior to project time management was not really able to help and would always blame others and claim to"look in to it" but hardly ever did so management would also not be clear on projects we had to do and so when following what instructions that we were given sometimes company would tells us we did it wrong and needed to go back in stores to redo even if we never received the correct instructions

Teamwork

We worked almost always independently on our side and the stores we worked in where their employees didn't do there part and if we needed the stores to do what they should have done before we arrived they often would not work with us

Freedom to work independently

Yes

Internal Communication

Huge gap in communication on way too many occasions

Attitude towards older colleagues

Yes

Career Development

There's very little opportunities for advancing in the company also company doesn't give better pay unless you are one of few that get promoted

Overall compensation for your work

They make it hard for part timers when it comes to pay and travel reinvestment

Environmental Friendliness

Company would only show concern when it came to us using our own car i.e. weather conditions but when it came to going to store locations that were known by many other team members and vendors from other companies to be unsafe just in the parking lots or inside the store management as well as the company did very little to protect us i.e. harassment,and muggings in the parking lots, store employees not being respectful and getting angry with us over when we were to just following what we were in the store do do on behalf of our clients.

Work-Life Balance

Very flexible hours for part time employees but having to go to from very little hours to accepting manageable hours but never the types of hours they tell you when you start the job

Company Image

For a short time I felt good about working for the company but ended up taking care of stores that had no rep assigned to always being told it will only be in that store for no longer than a month there was a lot of turn over of team members not lasting long and I would spend a lot,of training new employees that never stayed with the job for no more than 2 weeks

Job Security

No

Workplace Safety

No company doesn't really tell you much about accident prevents

Challenging Work

Some work was simple and some more challenging because of physical labor

Inclusive / Diverse

You don't really get to see other team members due to working alone 95% of the time

Suggestions for improvement

  • Have territory managers be more involved with the team members and make sure they give clear updated instructions on calls we do in store

What I like about the company

Working on my own and not having a specific time for me to work just getting told work needs to between certain hours of the day

What I dislike about the company

Store list and hours aren't good they would change locations without informing you prior they would constantly change time frames for tasks needed to do as well as cutting projects leading to lower hours
