Suggestions for improvement

  • Nothing at present. I truly believe that what you bring as an employee should generate a great working environment not hostility. The workplace policies, culture and environment begins with you the employee. we have great policies in place that we all abide by.

What I like about the company

Employment began in May 2009, promoted to the rank of Supervisor in training in Jan 2010 full promotion in Oct 2011 until present. We have a diverse staff of Managers and sales staff. Great place to work, lots to accomplish; steady schedule to full and part time employees. The benefits are great, the atmosphere is workable; friendly co-workers. Bob's is highly recommended to those who are seeking to advance their career in Management in business. I often recommend job seekers to give Bob a chance; opportunity awaits those who desire to pursue and advance themselves in their chosen proffession.

What I dislike about the company

Based on my years at being at this Bob's location; my only disapproval is that there is hardly any promotions from within the actual store to Management, especially in the Department I presently work. Those who have held the position were from other Bob's store; not from the actual site.

Company Culture

Very upbeat and positive.

Teamwork

Very good team work at Bobs everyone willing to help no matter if its there job or not.

Freedom to work independently

Yes this is definitely a positive to working for Bobs

Internal Communication

Sometimes too much open communication with other managers and then they sometimes discuss it with fellow co-workers.

Work-Life Balance

Retail always makes the work-life balance for people difficult if the spouse works days Mon-Fri no weekends and I have to work nights and weekends.
