Suggestions for improvement

  • Stop pushing the blame onto people considered in a lower position than you.

What I like about the company

Learn a multitude of trades that you wouldn't expect to learn.

What I dislike about the company

Too much micromanagement. Every task is given an unrealistic time frame if you wish to complete a thorough job. You are rushed on everything and you are not given enough support to get the seemingly unending list of assignments completed. They keep raising prices on everything with no improvement for the employee work environment. They give the stores limited staffing hours to care for the store's basic needs. They are more concerned about profit rather than customer satisfaction.

Company culture

Screaming and yelling a norm

Support from Management

Upper management is more focused on keeping costs such as labor low instead of keeping customers happy, which in turn lowers sales.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Trust the people you put in the stores to do their job instead of trying to constantly micromanage. You hired them for a reason, now let them do their jobs.

What I like about the company

It is a fun place to work as long as you can realize that you are not saving lives and just roll with the punches.
