  • Just update some of the stores that need it instead of doing the same stores over and over

What I like about the company

I feel very appreciated compared to other places I have worked. I enjoy my job and the people I work with

What I dislike about the company

I wish they would update some of the older looking stores to make it look more appealing

Suggestions for improvement

  • The location I work for has made some great changes this past year and I dont think there is much more that I would change.

What I like about the company

Everyone that I have had the pleasure of working with is very knowledgeable about their job and someone is always available if you were to need help. They have worked with my family by allowing me to start at later times to accommodate the fact that we sont want to put our child in daycare. I would highly recommend this company for a place of employment of any one!

What I dislike about the company

I think they could offer a little more employee discounts or rewards especially for part-time employees.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Working on improving the etiquette of all staff on walkies, cracking down on the dress code as many other staff seem to get away with coming in to work out of uniform, and more volunteer/charity work from our location.

What I like about the company

They are very transparent with everything. If you want to know something or why we're doing something a certain way they'll explain it and listen to your input. Plus they empower all employees from entry level up to think and make decisions as if they are truly the owner. This gives many employees a great sense of pride in their work.

What I dislike about the company

The increased length of orientations for new employees. The information is valuable but I've heard from people going through it that it's a lot too sit through and learn in one day.

What I like about the company

Great coworkers
Flexible schedule

What I dislike about the company

Showing favortism, such as choosing a person for a promotion based on who they are related to or live next door to, is not fair to the better qualified and harder working candidate that did not get chosen.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I would suggest to allow more comfortable clothes to be worn. Workers would be able to work more comfortably in active wear instead of formal clothing.

What I like about the company

Coborn's provides a work environment that makes you feel comfortable. You can be yourself and build strong, meaningful relationships. You have a family behind you that constantly pushes you to be your best.

What I dislike about the company

The company needs to provide competitive pay or it will continue to lose great potential candidates.

  • See previous answer involving upgrades to equipment and wages.

What I like about the company

My coworkers are the best part of my job. And I feel I am very knowledgable about what I do to the point where I feel I contribute positively to the company. I like feeling like I accomplished something each day. I enjoy assisting people daily and interacting with guests and coworkers.

What I dislike about the company

All positions should receive raises. There should be more perks for employees. Retirement plan options should be better. Equipment should be upgraded so we can do our jobs properly. Corporate should communicate better and be proactive when problems arise rather than reactive.
