Suggestions for improvement

  • My advice would be not to put the employees up against each other and make them feel like they're not a team. Create a more positive atmosphere during meetings instead of only sharing the negative.

What I like about the company

I get to go into some wonderful accounts and I love my customers. It is nice to have a company vehicle and also nice that Im not stuck in an office all day, each day is a different route.

What I dislike about the company

I believe that even as an extremely large corporation, each small division should know their entire area and visit it personally as managers. It seems right now they stick to the closest places to the office and therefore think that rural areas are the same as big cities!

Suggestions for improvement

  • I would not change anything about this company. They are all about everyone being true to themselves and showing off who they really are.

What I like about the company

I started this company as holiday help and now I have worked my way up to management. The opportunities are endless for me in this company. They have given me so many tools to help better myself in life and in this job it is just amazing. I have worked for them for 5 years and I do not see myself leaving. This company is amazing and fun.

What I dislike about the company

I do not have any part of the company that I disapprove of.

Support from management

Planning/design department could use a revamp of managers. The directors were great but team management for the design department is severely lacking in technical know-how and direction.

Teamwork

The company has good team ethics, however the planning/design department is quite different.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I loved the company but did not agree with the management team of the design department. The directors and store designers were great but direct management is completely disconnected from day to day tasks. Way too much micromanagement, lack of checks and balances, and severe lack of schedule flexibility due to older style management and lack of trust in design team.

What I like about the company

Culture and dress code

What I dislike about the company

Design team management was the only reason I left this position.
