Loved my title but bad experience with owner
Graphic Designer/Production Artist (Former Employee) – Cypress, TX – September 27, 2016
Loved my job as a Graphic Designer here but the owner was unexperienced in the sign industry, had no idea what was going on. He blamed every employee for everything, micromanaged, treated us like we were in grade school. Not to mention he tried to "redesign" things because he thought he was a designer. Pay was VERY low, no benefits, no ongoing training, yet he expected so much from his employees. Hardest part of the job was being distracted to while designing and having someone looking over my shoulder. Co-workers were awesome, I learned a lot by being there and teaching myself through trial and error. Learned a lot about what NOT to do as a manager as well, and don't open a sign company if you don't LOVE it. Simple. They should make owners go work at a FastSigns before they open one.
No benefits, didn't believe in breaks, micromanaged, very low pay, eavesdrops on employees, etc.
