Merchandiser (Current Employee) – Beaver County, PA – October 24, 2016
I've worked with this company for a little over a year now, and I love it. My district manager is informative and helpful. I have yet to meet him, since merchandiser communication is primarily done through mass email, however management is still great. The biggest thing I've learned from this job is to stand up for yourself. As a merchandiser, I am in charge of the product that goes onto the sales floor. So naturally that means that one must have good communication skills and the ability to direct in leadership when needed. The most enjoyable part of my job however is the people I meet on a daily basis. They make my job worth while and make me happy that I am able to assist in any way I can.
talk to managerial positions, time management, organization, paid travel
miscommunication of merchandiser job duties and client staff
CSSR, Corporate Trainer (Former Employee) – Farmington, MI – July 25, 2016
Owners take the time to know every employee personally. You are greatly rewarded for your work not only with gifts and trips but with praise from the management and peers. Its truly was a great place to work.
Talent (Former Employee) – New Hudson, MI – September 4, 2014
This is a good, fun, company with awesome community involvement and wouldn't be a bad place to work if the pay offered, for the work that we're asked to do, wasn't so low. Not to mention, there are very little raises given for that work, and little opportunity for advancement or new jobs. Usually if it's something that can be absorbed by someone that already works here for little or no more pay, that's what they do.
All in all, I would say if you need a job and aren't worried about the pay, you will love it here. But don't expect to be paid what you're worth.
Involved in community, Decent Benefits, Nice end-of-year gifts
Barely any room for advancement; Very low pay for the work you're asked to do/minimal raises
Manager (Former Employee) – Flint, MI – November 6, 2012
I had a lot of fun at this salon, but because it is such a small business, there is absolutely no room for advancement. Some of their managers have been there for 7 years with no pay raise. I was also treated unfairly during my pregnancy and felt like the couldn't wait to get rid of me. I had three different manager within 1 year and they had no training what so ever. I had a great rapport with customers that kept me there. I still get comments asking where I've been and how much they miss me, but after working over a year with no review or anything, I gave up.
great hours, great discounts, amazing health insurance and benefit package.
no job advancement, no pay raises, no on the job training
Great culture and top of the line C-level employees.
Director of Operations/Stores, Texas Division (Former Employee) – Dallas, Texas – March 15, 2013
As an employee, we had a Make it Happen attitude that we instilled in ourselves as managers and passed along to our employees. We built great, honest and hard working teams, that would give 120% everyday.
My career consisted of overseeing multiple store locations, employee development, travel, annual store budgeting, merchandising, human resource protocol and procedures, inventory analysis and forecasting, just to say the least.
Everyday was challenging and decision oriented, which I enjoyed immensely! By the end of the day at TNG Worldwide, I felt accomplished by the decisions I made, the tasks I accomplished and the the people I encountered.
At the end of each day, I was ready for the next day of challenges and excitement.
worked directly with the owner, his famous bbq's, professional work relationships and environment, non-profit involvement and benefits.
if there were "cons", we easily discussed them and had a resolution immediately.
Talent/Sales (Former Employee) – Rochester Road, Troy MI – March 31, 2015
The customers are wonderful. They make coming to work worth while. Unlike the company the customers appreciate when you help them whether it is with a sale or product knowledge. The company makes you read and write book reports. Though it is great that they want employees to stay reading and keep their mind working... It has no purpose.
New products to try
Low pay, no time off, over worked, and poor management.
