Marketing Brand Manager (8 core accounts) (Current Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – January 26, 2018
KT Tape should be fun considering the industry. However, you will not do well if you are a self-starter who likes to get things done. Everything is decision by committee covered in red-tape. The company is stuck in old-school marketing ways (see their social media and website). No 401K, no flexibility to work from home, expected to report to the office M-F 8:30-5:00 with no exceptions, no maternity leave, and no opportunities for growth.
There are so many great companies in the SLC area that you don't need to waste your time or energy working for these dinosaurs. No collaboration and everyone is cutthroat.
I fine place to learn a wide variety of skills in regards to building a brand that has sales in all major and some minor retailers across North America.
I have established great relationships with co-workers during the time i've been with the company.
The saying, "Old Habits, Die Hard!" is most true at KT Tape. We have an old group of EC men that don't understand an up-front investment into CRM, ERP, BI Tools, Other Data Reporting Tools are key to measuring the success of the business and making key decisions to hedge against the market quickly as well as better inform our Sales Team of what products perform best in particular regions, new product launches (success or failure rates), etc...
Pay the money and buy the sotware apps required these days to run a proper business!
Education in Retail
No 401(k), No Tuition Reimbursements, Well Below Market Pay Scale, Some of the EC have got to go!
Taper and plasterer (Former Employee) – New York, NY – August 18, 2014
I had this company for almost 10 years. I started from scratch. I learned to deal with my employees and even more important with my clients. The hardest part of this job was Being The Boss. The most enjoyable part of this job was Being the Boss also.
