This company values the "whole person". A strength of ours is the accommodating work hours to our Associates. Whether it be your commute, your pet, or your families schedule, I think we do a great job at working around our lives. Our President, COO is a women and we have a number of women on our leadership team who are great examples.

    There is no set policy for work for home, summer Fridays, etc...I would say it varies depending on department and manager.

It really depends on your direct manager. Co-location is a big thing and working from home is frowned upon. This lack of flexibility, especially for Moms, can be challenging.

Flexibility exists on a case by case basis. Be upfront about what you need after receiving an offer but before accepting it.

This is a men's industry but the women are respected and well acknowledged for their hard work. But again - this all depends on who they are working for and how much flexibility is perceived by their department heads.

    The Maternity leave doesn't coincide with PTO but will be used to compensate for unpaid FMLA time. For those women who qualify, they must be working here for 12 consecutive months, full time. 6 weeks + 2 additional weeks of "Baby Bonding" time is given for vaginal delivery. 8 weeks + 2 weeks of Baby Bonding time is paid if a C-Section is performed. 2 weeks paid Paternity Leave is also granted.

    It's hard to say... one manager could have very strong beliefs and foster a culture of work-life balance. Another is so inflexible where no exceptions are made for their staff and there is zero fairness across the board from one employee to the next.
  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. Depending on who they would report to and how that department is managed, I believe this would be a good place for women to work.
