Terrible Corporate Management
Senior Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Columbus, OH – October 22, 2015
I love music, I loved working with students, and teachers to spread my love a music around the area. However, what I witnessed at Music & Arts was a systematic excision of every employee that cared about Music Education as it relates to the wider culture rather than Music Education as it relates to the bottom line of the company. Additionally, I saw a pattern of disrespect from the district and regional managers towards the ability and skill of their employees and more importantly the teachers that bring in vast majority of the money in each of the locations. Sales managers like to remind employees that they can be fired at any time, and have no problems bringing in a replacement.
I met a great many people and formed some very strong bonds with some of them, but outside of that I have a hard time reflecting positively on my time at Music & Arts.
Good experience in a sales culture, good people in the retail locations
Terrible management that regularly threatens termination to get results
