Company Culture

Midwest thinking. No sense of urgency.

Support from management

Yes, at the store I worked in there was an excellent seasoned manager who helped you achieve your goals.

Teamwork

Honesty was number one. Competitive, commission based environment which worked well to drive all sales associates.

Freedom to work independently

There was an extreme level of respect and all associates were expected to "run their own business".

Internal Communication

There was a general lack of communication from corporate level down to store level.

Gender Equality

Not very gender friendly. Homosexuals and women were not hired at this location.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Most of the staff was seasoned and a bit older. The company was very respectful of age.

Career Development

Empty promises for all associates for general management advancement.

Overall compensation for your work

For a number 3 store in sales. Associates should have been compensated accordingly.

Office / Work Environment

Unfortunately, there were associates who were difficult to work with. Honest and fair, but difficult due to attitude.

Environmental Friendliness

There was a general accordance with not wasting paper etc. recycling was a priority.

Work-Life Balance

Probably the worst company to work for (in a retail capacity), if you want a family life. Associates and management were expected to work every Saturday and 6 days a week during sales.

Company Image

American to the corps. The image at this store was professional and could not have presented itself better.

Job Security

Do your job, sell, sell, sell. And you will retain your employment.

Handicapped Accessibility

Not too much concern for ADA compliance.

Workplace Safety

You were in danger of many items falling on you and it had a poorly designed stockroom.

Challenging Work

As a former executive manager, this job was not challenging.

Inclusive / Diverse

There was a misogynistic level and a general disdain for minorities.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Keep to the American heritage. Discover ways to support your employees and compensate them accordingly.

What I like about the company

The product was nice. Medium luxury product at a good price.

What I dislike about the company

Hours were insane. No time for a quality of life.
