    Pros

    I am in charge of all sales, estimating, job design, inventory, purchasing, accounts payable and accounts receivable.

    Cons

    We are sometimes short staffed and it is hard to stay on top of everything.

    Advice to Management

    I would add one more employee to cross train that does not have to be an expert on anything just help the staff.

    Pros

    The people and environment are very supportive. Employees at Johnstone stay here a long time, in my department most people have been here 15 years or more and it is that way across the company.

    Cons

    Work-life balance can be challenging, but no more than any other company I've worked for and it depends on the time of year too. Benefits are good although I'm not crazy about the PTO since having vacation & sick in one pool makes for a smaller overall pool of days yearly.

  3. Great place to work. Teach you everything you need to know about the computer system.

    Pros

    It's good legitimate basic warehouse work with good people.

    Cons

    No real opportunity for upward mobility.

    Advice to Management

    Be consistent and fair to all of the Staff. Blatant favoritism is most evident here.

    Pros

    Fellow employees were good people. The compensation package offered was fair.

    Cons

    Expectations were placed but not conveyed. Job responsibilities misrepresented. No clear financial goals outlined.

    Clearly outline expectations for new outside sales employees with actual sales goals.

    Pros

    Fantastic team of people. The industry is challenging as it is constantly evolving, but the team of people I work with really make the job much easier by constantly communicating new information. Online training courses are also becoming more prevalent within the company in order to meet the demands of the fast paced industry.

    Cons

    It's extremely hard to get any apparel with company logos. Being that I am a part time employee I don't apply for any of the benefits offered to full time employees; however, the benefits are sub-par. First, the company is not publicly traded, so there are no stock options. Second, there is only a 5% matching bonus for 401K accounts. Third, from what I hear, the other benefits aren't anything special either. The corporate level is also mostly comprised of family members who own the franchise.

    Advice to Management

    Offer better benefits, and encourage employees to work hard in order to move up in the company. Create more positions within the company for different employees to flourish.

  11. fun and very educational
