Good Company

Area Manager (Current Employee)
Orlando, FL (US)

I have been working at Johnstone Supply full-time

ProsFamily owned, good pay, close knit group. The owner is engaged with the business and employees and takes the time to know employees outside of work.

ConsLimited advancement opportunities. If management finds out you are really good in a particular area, they will limit your ability to advance. Cant say that I blame them, but it makes it difficult for those who are eager and have the qualifications both professionally, and academically to advance.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep your talent engaged and feeling like there opportunities for advancement or else they will start looking for other opportunities.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
