HORRIBLE

1.33

Company Culture

leadership only uses a stick for motivation

Support from management

management is only looking to have lunch and leave by 3...if you need something be prepared to wait DAYS for an answer and do not even think of making an autonomous decision...reprimands come with that choice

Teamwork

decent...only because the employees care about the customers

Freedom to work independently

MICROMANAGEMENT at its finest

Internal Communication

important items are only discovered through the grapevine

Gender Equality

1 female sales person ONE!!!

Attitude towards older colleagues

management is always angling to "work them out of the organization"...they are "too expensive" and not "durable"

Career Development

does not exist...management is threatened by anyone that is looking to advance

Overall compensation for your work

compared to other comparable companies...WAY LOW

Work-Life Balance

dont dream of requesting any "additional" time off for a family event...school function, sporting event etc....they will tell you that you can go, but then they dock you pay or time accrued LIARS

Company Image

they once upon a time had a great reputation , they live off of that..but it is diminishing daily

Job Security

everyday you go to work wondering if this is your last day....if you do not belong to the "AROMA" club, or good ole boys network, you are an outsider

Workplace Safety

virtually non existent

Challenging Work

it is only challenging because everything is met with a roadblock from leadership..."that is not the way we do it here"

Suggestions for improvement

  • trim the fat from the top

What I like about the company

teammates...thats it

What I dislike about the company

i believe i have summed that up

Suggestions for improvement

  • Better management training for primary costs, profits and loss, employee payroll, and overhead, to ensure that the company does not hire too many people, then less layoffs if any.

What I like about the company

Pay was decent.

What I dislike about the company

For a company that trains and promotes loyalty so much to their staff and their clients, especially clients that want to stop service, crystal rock should not lay off quality hardworking employees. The 2015 company wide layoff was a couple months after the sales push where a bunch of new sales reps were hired, trained, sent out into the field to build new clients, then rapidly laid off. That is very bad business practice that a company with a better business bureau rating of an A should not do.
