Support from management
If I could give this no stars I would. Managers do not advocate for their employees and stick up for their friends. Some do stick up for their people, but most of them don't.
There is not too much teamwork, only so when people knew each other and practice forms of nepotism. Teamwork also suffers when there is a lack of communication and more gossip.
Freedom to work independently
This would depend on the department that the employee works in.
Commication is horrible and degrades especially between management and employee.
Females are in lower mangement position, except for HR. There are females in some higher positions, but there seems to be more men. Other companies tend to be more diverse in terms of promotions.
Attitude towards older colleagues
In the stores, it's mixed, depending on department and management. But in the corporate office, it tends to be older people are in the majority.
There are some development programs for employees, if the information can be found through company resources. If you can utilize them, you might get ahead. College tuition assistance. Much of this revolves around the younger generation though.
Overall compensation for your work
The houly rate is ok, weekly pay is modest at best. Benefits are not offered only after working a certain amount of hours.
Office / Work Environment
It is low key for the most part, even though some corporate employees are a little unprofessional.
Most hours are all over the place and it is difficult to have any kind of work life balance.
The company projects a negative image, the gossip, nepotism and lack of diversity. Being bailed out constantly, lack of empathy for entry level employees. Hard work is not rewarded.
Work load and hours are unpredictable and precarious. Jobs are always being cut and it is unknown as to whether or not someone will be working for an extended period of time. The business always changes. Expect that there is a chance that you will walk in the door one morning and walk out at the end unemployed.
All of the buildings are accessible.
There is an emphasis on safety and training and people are aware of protocols that must be followed.
You will be worked harder, Sometimes past your limits. They will work you for the same tasks, if you are effective, which will hinder advancement into other areas.
Inclusive / Diverse
Diversity....it's like the 50s. There is not a lot recognition of different races and not many different races in the workforce. They don't tend to be not too trusting of people of young people in their corporate IT department.
Suggestions for improvement
- Improve communication, diversify the work force, show flexibility and provide support for your employees when needed.
What I like about the company
Employee discount, state of the art facility and hourly wage is above average.
What I dislike about the company
The favoritism and nepotism that discourages individuals from evolving in the company. Promoting a hostile work environment. Singling out and destroying others who try to improve the work environment. Overworking employees beyond their limits. The level of disdain between corporate and store level employees. Discouraging initiative. Not following rules and protocols. Ineffective HR, HR not following through and following up.
The following benefits were offered to me
