ProsCompany is a good sized organization where employees have opportunity to be involved in many initiatives (if they show interest in doing so). Employees are cared for - especially when they may be going through tough times. Leadership decisions are well thought out.

ConsLean organization which can lead to employees wearing mutliple hats but this offers opportunity for experience.

Frustrating job where egos rule over common sense

I worked at Winmark full-time for more than 10 years

ProsGreat medical benefits
Great brands

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

Corporate Employee (Current Employee)
Minneapolis, MN (US)

I have been working at Winmark full-time for more than a year

ProsGood 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.

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

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

I did not enjoy working for Winmark, it was my worst employment experience.

I worked at Winmark

ProsEstablished Company
Great Concept for Stores

ConsWinmark 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 Senior ManagementDiversify and share.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
