I cannot say enough great things about the culture of the South West Region at Paper Source. Our Regional Manager is the best leader I have ever worked under. She is understanding, empathetic, hands on, encouraging, a great teacher and she knows how to manage different personalities without ever making you feel belittled or devalued. She works hard to make sure that you are successful and she truly and genuinely wants to see you grow to be the best version of yourself.
My only negative with Paper Source is it has become less about the crafting and more about trial and error. The last few years a lot has changed, and change is good. But the direction from home office is often last minute. You'll set a table via corporate direction and the next day there is an update to that table plus a sale change and a new store event that was just created to put out before opening. The direction is last minute or on the spot and just not well organized.
I cannot speak for any other regions, but if you are lucky enough to work in the Southwest Region you will absolutely feel at home with an amazing leader to get you to where you want to go!
