Forklift Operator (Former Employee) – Glendale, AZ – May 4, 2016
I overlooked the progress of multiple crews, I had to maintain and keep track of all equipment that was used. I also had to keep track of the other worker's log sheets and their time sheets also. I am certified with a Kentucky Chemical license and I have a very hi-knowledge about trees and plants
Great corporate culture, great people, well known company.
System Support Technician (Former Employee) – Stamford, CT – September 29, 2015
Conair is a great place to work, the company is easily recognizable.
On a typical day you're expected to finish all the work assigned to you. I learned how to prioritize workloads and people. Management rarely interfered with our work, except to assist us. Co-workers are amazing; very friendly, social, and always willing to help out. Having to leave Conair for other opportunities. Being able to solve difficult problems that plagued the department.
Free lunches, relaxed atmosphere, amenities, fun and friendly co-workers.
Returns Processor (Former Employee) – Glendale, AZ – June 24, 2015
A fast paced environment and must be on your feet all day, even when management decides tell you you have to stay for over time. It is a maditory 10 hours a week of over time. In the summer months with no A/C, it get's pretty uncomfortable inside.
I really enjoyed working for Conair. I got a lot of experience working directly with customers and was able to assist in creating POP displays as well as attending the annual Housewares Show in Chicago.
This is a horrible place to work! I have never been in an office with a worse morale. Privately owned company means no one to answer to and is run like a loony bin. They don't promote internally and prefer employees to sit with their heads down and not ask questions. You do well here if you are a sheep. Horrible pay and very low raise cap per year.. Not enough to cover inflation! Upper management turns over within months- even they can't handle it! Do not put yourself through this!
bad pay, little vacation, no room to grow, low raise, politics
While working at Conair I have learned many new things.
Web Production Artist (Current Employee) – Stamford, CT – August 20, 2013
I was hired as a web production artist but took on many different tasks. Most of the work is front end programming but I also get to design emails and code them in HTML to send out to consumers. I also get to design landing pages and web banner adds as well. I really enjoy the work I get to work on but I also enjoy the people I work with. I normally get along well with anyone but this place is so friendly that you end up knowing everyone in this 300+ person company.
great challenging atmosphere with plenty of friendly people
pay scale is a bit low but it benefits in healthcare and free lunch
Account Manager (Former Employee) – Commerce, CA – March 8, 2013
Co-workers and management were the best. The company cares for the employees and often showed their appreciation by throwing company wide lunches, softball games for team building, etc. Great place to work!
Excellent set up of the company from parking and landscape; to dimension format of the company.
Side Shift Operator (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – March 5, 2013
A typical day is arriving at work which is a beautiful entrance that makes employees proud of what they do for the community. Great from the lowest compensated to the highest makes it clear that without the next person the task will be compromised which goes against our mission statement. Of course as the economy suffers unfortunately so is certain positions throughout the corporate ladder.
Conair Corporation is a sales driven organization. Products are launched within the 6-9 month period, which is an accelerated timing.
You wear many hats, from brand marketing to trade marketing.
I've learned to develop a broad level expertise from promotional planning, to vendor relations, to navigating the system.
The hardest part of my job was the lack of training in terms of understanding the process. Being able to secure the right contact is key.
Co-workers are great and some have been in the company for a long time, while others do not stay that long because of the lack of support. Marketing seems to be a revolving door within this organization.
lunch is free as there is a cafeteria which you do not pay
Compounder B (Former Employee) – Rantoul, IL – November 6, 2012
