Suggestions for improvement

  • Bonus for customer care reps like in Christmas time. A check for even $100 would be nice. More paid holidays or close early on special holidays. Treat us like equals

What I like about the company

i had issues with my child when i first started and my boss helped me to make sure i would keep my job even though i had to be out several days due to my childs needs. without her i could have lost my child and job.

What I dislike about the company

stores getting more credit and showing disrespect to customer care associates. customer care feeling as if we are not appreciated by the owners of the company. store associates get cruises and bonus but we cant even get a Christmas bonus or appreciatation bonus.

Support from management

Management blames each other and when that doesn't work they blame their people.

Teamwork

Used to work together - now people are just in it for self

Freedom to work independently

Even professionals are micro-managed

Internal Communication

All lies - cant believe a word anyone in management says

Gender Equality

See above.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Other than the top where everyone is very old or acts like they are - they don't want people who are older.

Career Development

people who know people or are related to the top managers get promoted. But they get the jobs and don't know how to do them.

Overall compensation for your work

Not even worth the gas to get there

Office / Work Environment

like being in jail.

Environmental Friendliness

obviously they waste a lot.

Work-Life Balance

The worst of any company anywhere. Routine required OT and professionals have to work 6-7 days a week. 6 is required.

Company Image

So many complaints from customers and the service people literally hang up on customers so they don't get yelled at for long calls

Job Security

Constantly shutting down with no pay and get rid of more people than they hire.

Handicapped Accessibility

Not even possible. They don't want handicapped people. When I worked there I never even saw one.

Workplace Safety

Always in trouble with the government on this one and the safety teams hate the employees and if you are on their list they will drug test you again and again - with someone - not always even the same sex watching you

Challenging Work

Impossible expectations and no goals.

Inclusive / Diverse

Routinely discriminates unless you are white male. Likes Hispanics for manufacturing. If you worked there before and want to come back - they won't hire you if you ever were injured on job.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Have a constructive plan for down-time. There is a lot of un-productive time spent in between customers. There are morning meetings, daily. Strictly numbers based, with the constant influx of new merch and employee churn, spend some time daily on a specific product. Empower employees to be subject matter experts and contribute to what is communicated during daily meetings.

What I like about the company

You spend a lot of time there, allowing you to get to know your co-workers well. Full commission position with unlimited income potential.

What I dislike about the company

Poor work/life balance. 12 hour Saturdays, every weekend. Last minute schedule changes.
