Information Technology Assistant (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – July 16, 2018
Work at Freeman was different from other companies. They really are great at marketing and advertising. When it comes to the employees they are hard workers. Helping With IT was tons of fun and learned new things everyday. Being a IT Support you always have to be aware of what people need and what types of problems they have.
The company was bought out due to poor management. The manager will deal with personal life first and leave with no direction to guide the operation. Co-workers was what relived the stress of day to day operations. The culture was to help one another,
Operator (Current Employee) – Fort Worth, TX – June 18, 2018
Freeman has historically been a 'stable' private company. For many years, Freeman was a stable, respected company in the industry. It was difficult to get hired, and subsequently, difficult to get fired. However, there has been continual layoffs and restructuring since 2010. Employees are consistently overworked, and underpaid, based on similar roles/titles in the workforce. The management and subsequent industry doesn't respect PTO/Vacation time earned by the employee. Upper Management are disconnected from employees doing the work. If you work in a branch, or for corporate, they do have corporate events, some lunches, and there is a much higher degree of corporate synergy.
A3 Solutions Temp. Agent (Former Employee) – 114 th. St. Grand Prairie, Texas – June 5, 2018
A typical day at Freeman was very quiet but professional. Business people come in from time to time. I learned how to approach difficult situations. Management were very polite and helpful. The work culture was fine. The hardest thing about my job was telling the delivering people to take the delivery to the back building after they had unloaded the boxes in the front. They were upset. What I enjoyed most was meeting new people and the atmosphere.

Freeman only prepares to work with in their system. Propritary tools and procedures will not serve you well if you leave the company. Management is an old boy's network that will not recognize loyalty. Don't get on their bad side.

Sales Manager (Former Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – May 14, 2018
This company has so much great potential, they are over managed (upper management). They promote from either the good old boys club or friends and family.Those that cant perform get promoted those that perform get locked into a position.
Freeman, wonderful depending on what department you hire on for
Exhibitor Service Representative (Former Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – May 3, 2018
When you go into a company and are told what to expect, however, favorable or unfavorable you weigh it out and make your decision.
Freeman was inconsistent regarding keeping promises on schedule.
The Managers seemed very sincere and heartfelt, and did their very best to grow and create a wonderful culture. I have a lot of respect for all of them! The company was a much better place to work before the new Director of the ES department came in.
The new director may be a great director, just perhaps she doesn't fit in with the culture of Freeman.
The rest of the departments seem to get on much better and have more stable schedules.
Fun co-workers, sincere managers
inconsistent schedules, unkept promises regarding schedule, a LOT of politics within the ES department
Sales Manager (Former Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – April 8, 2018
Working for the largest trade show contractor was a tremendous learning experience. But the size of the company and the friend of friends management mentality made it a very difficult place to work. Not having relatives their made it impossible for any advancement opportunities, when I applied for other opportunities my position was quickly eliminated.
While I think everyone is pretty competent, there is an air of frustration in IT and, from the other set who have been there longer, an attitude of "Well what did you expect from this place? Of course your project got sidelined/delayed/cancelled." It was disheartening.
