    Pros

    The occasional happy customer among a sea of understandably perturbed customers.

    Cons

    Revolving door of managers and employees, opinions/ideas aren't taken seriously, consistently low on resources (people and supplies), shift inevitably ends over an hour of your scheduled shift, lack of trust

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees, get organized, get more control over the company, recognize employees, stop workplace gossip, create a more open environment, hire a more diverse staff

    Pros

    Great medical and dental, not much else.

    Cons

    Besides the poverty level wages and treacherous hours, this company NEEDS to invest in its infrastructure and people more. All of the software is sorely outdated and the infrastructure is sad. The store owners know it, the employees, know it, everyone knows, yet nothing is being done.

    If you're reading this and thinking of employment, just don't. Don't make the mistake I did and walk away.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your company's infrastructure.

  3. Pass on working for this company, will never compensate for effort. No Incentive

    Pros

    Good HealthCare. Other than that this company will just use and discard you. The building looks nice from the outside. Not really any pros which is quite unfortunate.

    Cons

    Everything Else. Salary is far below standard, Life\Work balance is awful. Wear far too many hats at this company. No Growth potential. Zero appreciation.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your Staff and stand up for them. When everyone is disgruntled that should waive a red flag

    Pros

    Established Company
    Great Concept for Stores

    Cons

    Winmark is a company that is doing well, yet still does not give the proper financial recognition to it's employees. I overheard one of the executives take pride in the fact that they were a low paying company! Also, there is a glass ceiling that can be felt, and a good ol' boys mentality at the top.

    Advice to Management

    Diversify and share.
