Support from management
I was on the stock team and the manager in charge called me "worthless, "stupid", and told me "I couldn't do anything right".
Everyone there was out for themselves, if I could I would give it no stars.
Freedom to work independently
2/4 of my manager's let me do what I needed too, while the other 2 constantly breathed down my neck.
My manager's almost always kept me updated on our reviews, what sales were coming up, etc.
All my manger's were women.
Attitude towards older colleagues
Everyone is just a body to them, so they don't care about age.
There's no moving forward, it's a high school job. Unless you're real close with the higher up's you aren't going anywhere.
Overall compensation for your work
They make you do way more work for very little money, I was considered for a manager's position, but the raise was only .50 cents more so I would've made only $11.00 hourly.
Office / Work Environment
The registers constantly crashed, and the warehouse was cold but the front was hot?
We used so many plastic bags it was terrible.
They don't care. I got a second job and could only work morning's. I changed my availability and told my manager's, the next week they had me working ALL nights. When I tried to have it changed they told me "we can't change it." i had to call out the whole week and they tried to write me up for it.
I take a lot of pride in my work, so working for any company I take pride in it since I try to do my very best when working.
We had an employee quit and they kept her on the schedule for 3 extra months.
We have about 10 handicap spots right up front.
It depended on the manager.
They will work you to the bone for very little money, they will use you until you're dead tired and even then keep working you. It's beyond challenging and I used to love it.
Suggestions for improvement
- Learn to deal with harassment.
What I like about the company
the employee discount was 20% so that was nice.
What I dislike about the company
They only care about the money.
