Printer / Production Manager (Current Employee) – Clarksville, TN – 10 March 2017
If you are looking to start a career, this is not what you are looking for. Signs Now of Clarksville lacks management, communication, and most of all work ethic. I am not trying to put anyone down. I am speaking from experience. I have worked here for a little over nine years now, and nothing has changed. If anything at all, it has gone downhill.
Production Manager - Quality & On Time. (Current Employee) – Holland, MI – 6 March 2017
A typical day at work is doing something different. I have learned to be very detail oriented, and a stickler for quality.
The hardest part of this job is figuring out HOW to actual construct certain signs. The most enjoyable part is getting this done - and in time. I like the fact that we are a team when big jobs have to be done "today."
Enjoyed working with other employees and outside the office sales
SALES (Former Employee) – Perrysburg, OH – 21 August 2016
My work day began in the office as I checked in on any orders that I had made were going as scheduled, Making calls to prospective customers, returning customers calls of requests or complaints and resolving them. From there I would go out to prospective businesses and ask for their business. Co-workers were terrific with answering questions CSR and support. Hardest part was getting the Owners attention long enough for support. Most enjoyable part was the satisfaction of bringing New business to the table and closing new business.
Cleanliness of Office and bathroom were shortcoming, Support from owner lacking.
production (Former Employee) – Lake Charles, LA – 5 May 2016
From a simple vinyl decal to a car wrap, signs now has done it all. Car wraps presented the hardest challenge, as the vinyl comes in separated sheets it is applied one at a time and curves of a vehicle do not like to adhere to the straight vinyl and would constantly bubble and bend wrong but it was an obstacle that had to be overcome.
Fun place to work because every job was different. We did all kinds of different things for signage
Sign Assembler for a sign company (Former Employee) – Ventura, CA – 31 March 2016
Typical day would be going in and getting signs ready. Contacting customers letting them know when their signs were ready to be picked up or shipped. I learned a lot about measurements and how to figure out sizing of signs needed. Owner/manager was great to work with and my only co worker was great. We got along very well. The most enjoyable part of the day was creating different signs every day.
Free lunches, flexible schedule, weekends and evenings off.
Front Desk Manager (Former Employee) – Rapid City, SD – 4 January 2015
The employees at this place are friendly, though sometimes quarrelsome with each other. The management is friendly and very generous. a daily shift consisted of opening the store, answering emails and phone calls, providing job estimates and keeping track of orders already in progress. Taking order payments and whatever else was necessary on the side. the hardest part of the job was learning all the materials and various types of services that they provided, the most enjoyable part of the job was having a friendly boss to work for.
Christmas Bonus, raises, choice for insurance, flexible boss
Customer Service / Production (Former Employee) – Warner Robins, GA – 21 December 2014
I worked for a Signs Now a while back before the recession forced it to close its doors. 8 years I stayed with the company. They kept me on until they literally just couldn't afford any employees. Soon after they had to shut their doors, it was sad, because it was the nicest sign shop in middle GA. We had the nicest show room, friendliest staff, did the best artwork and made the finest signs in town. Aside from that I made EXCELLENT money and advancement is so easy because there is so much to learn and so many learning tools at your disposal! There's room for error while you're learning, so mistakes are allowed and expected, and the experience I got from working there has allowed me to branch out into many other related fields. Best job I ever had. I miss it so much. Haven't been happy with any other job since, I guess they spoiled me rotten lol.
FUN place to work, great pay, don't have to be a robot.
Project Manager and Customer Service Rep (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – 2 September 2014
I loved the fact I got to create ideas into life. Most of the customers were amazing and I enjoyed helping them with there ideas about how they wanted to market their business. Some days were long a ruff, with trying to keep up with customer demands, while working with such a small team to accomplish work load. We always met the dead line.
My day always started with a quick meeting with my subordinates to discuss days schedule of work and discussing possible solutions for any issues. My co-workers were quite supportive except of some exceptions as you can assume... The most enjoyable part of my job is i had a free hand from my management to implement out of the box solutions to handle any particular job.
Very unorganized business with no training program in place.
Customer Service Representive (Former Employee) – Donelson, TN – 27 February 2014
Employees were extremely unhappy, but stayed because "they needed a job" and it was 'laid back" for the most part. No body was ever able to offer any real training. Owner does not offer any benefits such as medical or vacation time even though it was explicitly written in an acceptance letter that the employees of this company receive health insurance, holiday pay and vacation time after 90 days.
Monday through Friday work schedule, no weekends.
No Holiday pay, no Health, Life or Dental Insurance, no Vacation or Sick time.
Never got a pay check stub. Never allowed full time status, even after 3 years. LOVED the work, LOVED the materials, LOVED the design, LOVED EVERYTHING about it but the owner. The most enjoyable part was forming a lifelong friendship with my manager. The hardest part of the job was pay day and not knowing what to expect because I was never told what I was paid nor did i ever get a paycheck stub, for over 4 years until I quit to go back to college.
