The management was great. I would have to coordinate a lot what the company basic does which is install counter tops. The people were great and the hardest part was what installer wouldn't show up or if a job was not ready I would have to break the news to the customer that we couldn't install their new counter tops that day.
Company lunches and overtime
unreliable sub contractors and when jobs were not done on time
HR is horrible, they will lie as much as they can.
Manager in Training (Former Employee) – Dallas-Fort Worth, TX – April 12, 2018
Horrible management. You need to know someone personally or may be give some personal favor in order to get a good job. Senior management does not care and does not know what is happening on the ground. Too much of turn over of employees.
Sales (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – March 29, 2018
Managers are not professional, they do not treat employees equally, constantly change processes, don't provide training and have horrible employee retention. If you are not "Spanish" you will more than likely not be treated equally. The company culture does not embrace "work - life" balance.
General Manager (Former Employee) – Hampton, VA – February 2, 2018
I would like to thank you for taking the time to review my qualifications for the proposed role with your company. In my current role as General Manager with Cosentino in Hampton, Virginia, I have consistently displayed a strong work ethic and an excellence for customer service.
My skill set includes an exceptional ability to organize and manage quick solutions for challenges in a high pressure environment while maintaining a professional manner. My management style is focused on clear communication with a focus on consistent productivity to meet the goals and objectives as set by Cosentino.
Thank you for your consideration. I look forward to discussing the role further in the near future.
Culture was of Spain where Company is owned. Poor employee treatment. Long hours, constantly changing direction of company but asking you to still achieve previous goals set and long hours and too much sales force, doesn't trust
Doesn't matter (Former Employee) – Rhode Island – September 25, 2017
I worked there for sometime and during that time I noticed favoritism and a number of laws being broken. The management is rude and unprofessional. Some of the employees are great then there is the others, as in illegal immigrants, some with criminal records. Those "employees" were given higher pay and raises, they were treated better and had more freedom to do what they wanted. The manager had full knowledge of this and didn't care. If you are looking for a job please take my advice and look elsewhere.
none that i can think of
Rude management, poor pay and raises, working with criminals.
Account Manager (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – June 27, 2017
These company has advancement to grow. If you move up to another position you must know somebody. Lets go of you even if you sell their material, after years of working with them.Cooperate is helpful at times. Does not see your worth as your working. You do not get no raises at all whatsoever. Management is terrible. GM help themselves with raises Staff is great and hard to deal with at times. There is ALOT of stress!
Working for a global company's corporate headquarters, I've learned more than I ever thought I could. Most thankful for the amazing people I met along the way. I have never been around such intelligent, funny, genuine, succesful, hard working people.
great work/life balance
very fast paced, even though its been in business for a while its still needs to set processes in place
Would recommend. I like the people and the work. The executives are easily available and nice. They trained me really well at what I would be doing. The work was challenging, but because of my training I did not feel overwhelmed. Managers and managers of different departments are nice and readily available if you have a question.
Material Analyst (Former Employee) – Sugar Land, TX – December 2, 2015
Illusive company, they are a worldwide company with contradicting business practices. They sell their image well and unfortunately once you get to the day to day you realize you are not appreciated in any way or form. They undertake multiple changes at once and do not monitor them to see which strategy works. The mentality is do all you can while you can, once the cycle is over they just reinitiate new processes. It is a vicious cycle of using personnel and undermining the skills of each individual. To keep their image they have glamorous events which only the elite group is in attendance.
Adminstrative Assistant (Former Employee) – south san francisco – October 8, 2015
Cosentino is alive with many products coming to light! i loved working with all of my colleagues. the down side was the SSF management it was very bad, employees should not be treated the way they treated us. but the company is great! theres room for advancement and its a fun place to work with.
customer service (Former Employee) – Fort Lauderdale, FL – September 14, 2015
great company great product Fun work place with supportive management. Not all about the numbers but how you personally grow and develop. Decent amount of red tape and politics, but this is expected of a big company. The most enjoyable part of the job was working alongside my colleagues and learning from them. The office started to get crowded as the company grew
Nice friendly work place - But little to zero raises.
Warehouse Worker (Former Employee) – WA – January 27, 2015
Good professional work place with good co-workers & management. Customers & guest are always nice people to deal with. When I helped folks with tough decisions to find the right product I felt the warm appreciation from guests/ costumers. Bosses praise you for good work/sale but... sell all you want still No commission. Fair benefits. You better start out with the Highest Pay Rate possible because you annual raises are very little pocket change.
Good co-workers & clients. Good quality product soled there.
Little breaks, short lunch, Very Small to no Raises! Not High safety
Admin Assistant (Current Employee) – San Francisco, CA – December 9, 2014
Working for Cosentino is excellent, being able to learn about the company and what they offer. Being to build a relationship with the customers, assiting them with their purchase orders, providing them with a confirmation
Account Manager (Current Employee) – New York, NY – September 9, 2013
Cosentino has been a great company to work for & has helped my career growth through continued advancement. I've learned to manage accounts, to add value through pro-active selling & the details of product marketing. Continued training from company executives & managers was key in my success.
