Company Culture

Nepotism is rampant.

Support from management

Dictatorship with the owner acting like a king over his peasants. There is no involvement in the decision making process.

Teamwork

Employees are pitted against each other. Teamwork is frowned upon and non existent.

Freedom to work independently

All email and phone correspondence with customers is reviewed and critiqued. No independence.

Internal Communication

Success is hidden and not talked about. Negatives are the only thing brought up by management. Very demoralizing.

Gender Equality

No women on the sales force. They had one for two months and then she was fired for being too emotional.

Attitude towards older colleagues

If you become too costly and your salary is higher than the average, you are let go. It happened to the branch manager of 15 years. Termination was not due to performance, but greed.

Career Development

There is no moving up within the company. This is not a destination company. All management positions are owned by family members.

Overall compensation for your work

As low as legally possible. They got in trouble with LARA a few years ago for forcing manadatpry overtime, with no pay. 7:30-5 with one hour lunch. They would get the 30 minutes extra a day for free.

Office / Work Environment

If it is hot, we can open the garage doors. We are each given small 4x4 cubbies/cells.

Environmental Friendliness

Large industrial size garbage container emptied weekly. All cardboard, paper products and plastic are discarded and not recycled. Having a recycling company pick up once every few weeks would take money out of the owners pocket, so it is all just thrown away. #sad

Work-Life Balance

The only family that matters is the owner their kids that work there.

Company Image

Low moral and no one knows if they will be fired next. They do well on profit, but it is not shared with the workforce that makes the company run.

Job Security

Here today...gone tomorrow. No one is guaranteed. If they fire you, they say you quit and deny your unemployment.

Handicapped Accessibility

A former coworker had MS and they have all of the necessary ramps and an elevator.

Workplace Safety

OSHA may need to do a walk through. Warehouse workers are not required to wear steel toe boots, hard hats or safety glasses.

Challenging Work

Answer the phone, complete the sale, repeat.

Inclusive / Diverse

Only one voice and opinion matters.

Company Culture

sometimes upper management is degrading and talk down to employees

Support from management

positive atmosphere great guys to work with, but sometimes higher executives can be degrading and talk down to.

Teamwork

very team orientated atmosphere everyone gets along.

Freedom to work independently

workload is distributed fairly, although if you excel in some areas they prefer to use you more than others.

Gender Equality

everyone is not treated equal their are favorites.

Attitude towards older colleagues

everyone is respected, although some upper management think and act like they are better than others.

Career Development

there is some advancement available here but very limited.

Overall compensation for your work

salaries are average, but company no longer offers health benefits or profit sharing match.

Office / Work Environment

yes

Work-Life Balance

great work life balance!

Company Image

company is a great company to work for, well known and well liked.

Job Security

owners and upper management sometimes make you feel as (just a number) used to feel secure , but lately not!

Handicapped Accessibility

yes

Workplace Safety

safety is a top priority, everyone is certified in their respective field.

Challenging Work

you will feel as good as you work, the harder you work the better you feel, but don't expect to hear that ada-boy because you'll probably be waiting a long time for it.

Inclusive / Diverse

Usually the owners and upper managers decide everything employees are usually told what to do.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Value your employees more and tell them you do, because happy employees work harder, smarter and communicate with customers and each others with dignity and respect.

What I like about the company

Company cares about customers and commitment to their employees. Employees are very proud of their team spirit and most work hard together.

What I dislike about the company

Dedication to veteran employees is not quite there. These people have worked their hardest for the company for many years and know the company very very well, listen to them! they spent their strongest working years for your company. promises are not always followed through with.
