Front Desk Manager (Former Employee) – Rapid City, SD – January 4, 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 – December 21, 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 – September 2, 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 – February 27, 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.

Pre-Press Graphic Designer (Former Employee) – Tucson, AZ – November 14, 2012
A day here was never slow but was always a very fun and rewarding experience. I learned a great deal about printing on and maintenance of large run flatbed printers, soluble ink printers, and vinyl plotters.I really enjoyed everything about this job. From printing to installation I found the process very rewarding and the management and employees were amazing to work with. The hardest part was having to leave the job and move out of state.
brilliant and friendly team, comfortable atmosphere, constant work, the opportunity to be creative
Production Manager (Former Employee) – eugene oregon – July 19, 2012
Signs Now is a franchise so I can't speak about the experience at all stores. After ten years of working there no benefits. though the manager who became the owner always spoke about doing a medical package. I enjoyed the work and did all aspects of the job except for the billing.
