Company Culture

Do you enjoy being threatened on a weekly basis? That's is what managers at this place are all about.

Support from management

No leadership. Just people in management positions that do nothing to help others but bark orders and sit back and make the most money while hard working merchandisers get paid dirt.

Teamwork

Very little teamwork outside of the merchandising dept.

Internal Communication

Communication is pretty much nonexistent.

Overall compensation for your work

The work definitely outweighs the pay received. You are lucky if you get a pay raise ,and if you do, it is no more than .25. The saying can't be more accurate than the rich get richer, the poor stay poorer.some of the people that have been there over 10 years are paid less than new employees who all are guaranteed to make more the day they start. Decent benefits are offered

Work-Life Balance

If you want to work 7 days in a row, and have no life outside of work, then it's very ideal for you. If you have a family you enjoy spending time with, look elsewhere, because the direction this company is going, family isn't a priority.

Company Image

The company image is outstanding, mainly because the people who make it successfull, mainly the merchandisers. They work weekends, holidays, and are lucky to receive a thank you.

Suggestions for improvement

  • To be more fair with pay to ALL departments. They should treat the loyal people who have been there as long as they have a LOT better.they really need to look at who they have im manager roles, because they can use the high salaries they are paying the ones to sit at their computer desks to rightfully pay the hard working ones who are literally giving their backs everyday for the company.

What I like about the company

Very little, but there are some really good and hardworking people that are at frank so are very unappreciated and undervalued.

What I dislike about the company

The backstabbing and unfair treatment to some departments.

Support from management

Frank tries to insert employees into managerial positions that have NO experience in the department.

Overall compensation for your work

Pertaining to the merchandisers, as a former merchandiser myself and from what is still going on. Merchandisers are severely underpaid and completely unappreciated. They are paid next to nothing,same goes for pay raises. The senior merchandisers are paid horribly. There are really great merchandisers at frank, but it's very sad to see how badly they are treated. They work very hard.

Work-Life Balance

Higher up's live great lives in huge houses, while the merchandisers who stock the shelves for customers to buy the product, build and maintain the displays that draw the customers to the product, and work hides AND weekends are paid $12hr - $15/hr while drivers and pretty much everyone else is paid much more significant.

Company Image

Frank looks great from the outside looking in, but the internal politics is terrible. There is so much backstabbing and turning the blind eye to the real problems at frank, it's bad.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Complete overhaul of managers is needed. Treat the employees as you want to be treated, and more fair and equal pay for all employees

What I like about the company

Nice building, SOME great people that have made the company as successful as it is.

What I dislike about the company

It is a company with a lot of hard working employees, some who have busted they're but for 10+ years but get no respect, and little pay. The higher up's really need to look at how hard some employees work and show SOME appreciation.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Need to value the employees that work as hard as they do. Merchandisers are so undervalued and unappreciated it is sickening. Pay needs to be more EQUAL between drivers/merchandisers. Some people that just start are making more than the hard working ones that have been there over 10 years. Merchandisers never get appreciation events such as cookouts, sporting trips, brewery trips, yet salesmen and drivers do.

What I like about the company

There are a lot of great hard working emcees that work there, unfortunately there are people in charge that don't really know the best way to handle things,and shouldn't be in manager roles.

What I dislike about the company

Pay, communication, not everyone is treated equal
