Not recommended for long term. Many long term staff have quit in past year. Talking or socializing among staff is discouraged by supervisors or manager.
Job Work/Life Balance
Most Incompetent Management Team in 25+ years experience
Showroom Consultant (Former Employee) – Vernon, BC – 30 August 2018
As an educated business professional with over 25 years Customer Service experience, within days I realized accepting a job offer with PGR was the biggest mistake I had made in my career. I had 2 job offers on the line and unfortunately learned quickly after starting at PGR that I made the wrong choice. The manager isn’t qualified to manage people, lacks the necessary skills to deal with unpleasant interpersonal issues, has poor communication skills and micromanages to a high degree, although denies it. Management’s actions/behaviours Do Not Align with their words because as part of their recruitment process you must complete a ‘Profile’ to be considered for employment in tandem with their interview process. Although they tell you initiative, change agents and self-starters are valued in their culture; to be frank, the manager wants to control staff like a kindergarten teacher does with a group of 5 year olds and in the manager’s own words, “wants to watch you” although that particular individual then referred to it as “coaching” in the same sentence. Actions speak louder than words. When approached on the subject of utilizing business application tools, The Manager didn’t see any value in applying reporting tools to help benefit the business and said “it takes too much time” and rather, insisted “you will figure it out on your own and have a better idea on that kind of stuff after awhile” Really?? Assumptions versus Actuals?? If you want to be respected and treated like an adult, I would discourage anyone from making the same mistake I did.
Very friendly customers, majority of office staff were great, helpful and hard workers, nice group of guys in the shop
Management very rigid and structured “old school” mentality rather than forward thinking.

No respect for employees. The only communication from management is negative. About 10 people left since new manager took over a year and a half ago. Only about 4 new people hired. Work load of those who left divided up to those still there, with no raises for increased work load. Managment style is do as he says, not as he does. No leadership. No advancement. Don't apply here. IMAO
It's a job
Offered perks that you don't get, Safety not a priority, No raises for years, Your day is tracked, Your vehical is tracked, No morale building of any kind, No advancement, Hard to have pride in your work, Discussion amongst employees is discouraged, Not a fun place to work
Associate/Administrative Assistant Sales (Former Employee) – Saskatoon, SK – 3 April 2018
Continuing education opportunities, inherently satisfying work, friendly colleagues, good supervision, ability to consult with clinical team lead at any time, supportive supervisors, diverse client base to work with, exchange program, opportunities to work overtime if you want to, 3 month grace period without productivity stipulations so you can get used to demands of the job, will lead to very good and diverse …

I did enjoy going into work before the management changed. First manager was very supportive, informative, made being at work fun and was a great motivator. Once the new management came in the place went downhill. Doesn't matter how good you are at your job or what your senority is, always something negative to pick at - no constructive critisism or job security. Unorganized, moody management. No lunch room, have to eat at your desk. Occasional potlucks and events.
Installation coordinator (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 17 January 2018
I really enjoy my job at FloForm great people to work with. New management has taken place I do see many improvements happening. Typical work day is making phone calls and setting up appointments for service install and template calls. We install countertops and tile - quartz laminate corian I am leaning lots about what it takes to install great counters. Hardest part of this job is time management there is no real flow to the day things come at you from all sides but my colleges are awesome to work with to help get the job done. The most enjoyable part of my job is the people I work with there is a great support system between staff.
In-home consultant/sales (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 15 January 2018
one advice - DO NOT WORK FOR FLOFORM Doesn't matter how long you work for them you will not gain respect or advance - this company is designed to slave its employees to the end- no appreciation for the good work
Good work environment, great people to work with, fun atmospehere with music on in the background
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 24 September 2014
I enjoyed working @ FloForm Countertops. My fellow workers were great, fun people, whom I got along with really well. A typical day @ work consisted of me coming into work and doing data entry during the day, then making calls in the evening time to book appointments to have our design consultant go to the customers home and try and sell countertops to them! I learned how to be professional, polite and just how to use time efficiently to get everything done before the day was over. Management was good, my coworkers were great. The hardest part was trying to balance the data entry with the phone calls so all designated work could be completed for the day. The most enjoyable part of the job was making phone calls and trying to get what we called it a "2 legged appointment" where both partners would be home for the consultation. If we did that we got a bonus and if the job sold we got an even bigger bonus once a month when we received our commissions.
