    I worked at Avalon Flooring full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Seems like a great place to work. Company execs even made time to personally welcome me, and they have a stable, profitable enterprise.

    Cons

    Left good career for management position I was perfect for and let go after a month without cause or explanation. Was never late, went above and beyond etc.. Company wouldn't even give me the courtesy of a reason

    Thank you for your review and your many years of working at Avalon Flooring. We have always encouraged all employees from all levels and departments to communicate with the management team and help provide suggestions to allow us to improve where improvement is needed. It is disappointing that your experience did not provide you the opportunity to improve your employment with Avalon.

    I have been working at Avalon Flooring full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    If you are in the “favored camp” Avalon is a great company to work for. If you are at the executive level you make a lot of money with a ton of benefits.

    Cons

    Not so good for “unfavorables”. Completely unequal pay. The executives at the top make 10 times or more for less work than the salespeople who do most of the hard work.

    Thank you for posting your review. As a long-tenured employee, your experience spans many years. It is my hope that you are aware of the many changes and improvements we've made over the years. We are 100% employee owned and all our benefits are available to all employees. Additionally, we do have a 401k plan with a match as well as wellness benefits that provide our employees the opportunity to receive discounts on their medical plan, which happens to be a plan without an annual deductible. :) One of our priorities is to take care of our employees by providing them with an expansive benefits package. I encourage you to reach out to me with any other suggestions or questions about our benefits and compensation packages.

    I have been working at Avalon Flooring full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    You get a sense that this is the greener side. I enjoy coming to work everyday, helping our customers and co-workers. It's a great feeling when you know you have helped someone and I get that every day here. The benefits are plenty, a company that really cares about your well being. From gym reimbursement to free health screening to a pension. Avalon is a career company

    Cons

    When I think of something that is really worth putting here I will.

    I have been working at Avalon Flooring full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    I have been with Avalon for over a decade and have experienced everything that goes with being involved in good times and tough times (like a recession) One thing that has made a difference is the fact that I always felt that i hold value as an employee. No matter what position I held in the company, my input, my opinions, my concerns, my questions were always met with the same level of respect and attention. I have always felt like I am a part of a family and that Avalon Flooring has been the most consistent in providing me a sense of security. Security in knowing that the direction the company has gone in always seems to be the right one. Security in knowing that the decisions made from the very top down always have the best interests of the employees at the core. It is rare to say that you feel truly happy and safe with any job but I have been able to do that for the last 10+ years. Avalon Flooring is a great company that I was very lucky to find and be a part of. Great leadership Great direction Great vision Great people Great training

    Cons

    Is a huge selection of products a Con? Maybe when you first start to learn all the products and details that go along but the training never ends and that helps you become more knowledgeable than the competition (which becomes obvious when you talk to customers and hear horror stories about other flooring companies) . It's a never-ending learning process no matter how old you are there are new things everyday to learn from. Remember your mistakes and focus on them .Your supervisors words and advice will only make you a better employee. One of my favorite quotes is "Experience is what you gain by not having it when you need it"

    I have been working at Avalon Flooring full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    I’m proud to say that Avalon has been my employer for the majority of my adult life. There is 1 constant at Avalon: Growth. Regress doesn’t exist here, only progress. Avalon is a very forward thinking company all the way from Brand Development to the extensive Sales Training. I've had the great opportunity to grow with the company as it evolved from 9 to 14 stores. Avalon always tries to promote within before posting a position to the masses. Hard work is rewarded! If you have the desire to build a career in sales (specifically the flooring industry) then Avalon should be at the top of your list. Even if you’ve never sold a lick of flooring Avalon provides a level of training you’d never find elsewhere. The tools are all there to help you succeed. I started as a 2nd shift warehouse employee and I now work in MGMT. Great support was always there then and it has continued until now.

    Cons

    Definitely not a place to consider if you don't have A.) A true desire to be successful or B.) Aspirations to grow as a person and build a career you love. Jaded: "If" the time ever came wherein I left I truly believe I'd be hard pressed to work for another flooring company. I just don't see that panning out because honestly other Flooring companies are 2nd rate.
