This Isn't Working

I'm certainly not the only former employee who has taken issues with
the Sliding Door Company's business practices.  Many reviews of this company from employees and former employees cast a very bright spotlight on some very shady activities.  Can all these employees be mistaken about The Sliding Door Company's managers and their management style?  

Let's have a look at a few recent and past complaints.

Glassdoor

Negative Outlook
Disapproves of CEO
I worked at The Sliding Door Company (More than a year)
Pros
Great accounting dept. And operations
Cons
Managers will not give you the proper tools to succeed. The owner will talk behind your back once you leave and blame you when you made him a lot of money. They need a new sales director to help with sales department
Advice to Management
When someone leaves it's not the employee's fault this company has a lot of turn around I would look at management and ownership now. I love my job there but realized it's untrustworthy upper management

"Don't work here! Really 1.5 stars"

StarStarStarStarStar
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
Doesn't Recommend
I have been working at The Sliding Door Company full-time (More than a year)
Pros
Been around for a while, a lot of showrooms. They have a GREAT product that is beautiful and well made.
Cons
Unorganized, shifty, unstable. I would not recommend that a friend come work here. Low paying job that will never give you a raise. They are hiring people, yet letting other people go at the same time. Constantly making changes.


"Account executive"

StarStarStarStarStar
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
Doesn't Recommend
Neutral Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

I worked at The Sliding Door Company full-time (More than a year)
Pros
Admin and managers are very nice. Designers help each other and the clients are decent. Product is better than Home Depot.
Cons
The owner is rude and mean and hires friends and family for upper level jobs. He will steal projects from people and give it to his daughter. (Note: this is against the law). The CRM looks and works like a 3rd grader created it. High turnover this is not a career. Very boring. Terrible marketing and pricing. I wouldn't recommend the job for a friend.
Advice to Management
Start looking for a new career because your number will be up one day

Visit our Complaints Page for more employee reviews.

"Shady" and "Shifty" are not descriptions ANY company wants to hear about themselves yet these very words (and similar) are used many many times to describe The Sliding Door Company's CEO and other high-level managers. 

The last review, above, seems to deliver a warning - that no company can expect to stay in business while treating employees like this.  

It also suggests criminal activity by The Sliding Door Company. 

Obviously, they cannot steal sales commissions from employees who have earned them and give them to family members.  This is exactly what the review accuses The Sliding Door Company's CEO, Doron Polus, of doing. 

I think it's safe to say that as a business model... This isn't working!
