Suggestions for improvement

  • I WOULD HAVE THE MANAGERS ATTEND SENSITIVITY AND DIVERSITY TRAINING. I WOULD ALSO RECOMMEND THAT THEY PROVIDE BETTER INCENTIVES FOR EMPLOYEES TO REACH GOAL. THEY CURRENTLY OFFER NO INCENTIVES OR REASONS FOR EMPLOYEES TO SUCCEED ON THE JOB/

What I like about the company

I LOVE MY CO-WORKERS. THEY ARE AWESOME.

What I dislike about the company

THE MANAGERS ARE MICRO MANAGERS. THIS HOLDS EMPLOYEES BACK FROM PERFORMING WELL.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Treating their employees like people knowing that they have lives and that unfortunate circumstances can occur. Making it easier and less of a hassle to call off work or to come in for overtime. Hiring that warra treating their employees like people knowing that they have lives and that unfortunate circumstances can occur. Making it easier less of a hassle to call off work or to come in for overtime. Hiring more employees So that the minimum amount of employees is nowhere near reached

What I like about the company

This company offers a very strong insurance package at a low hourly rate

What I dislike about the company

The overall corporate structure especially those who have no prior experience in the workplace they’re constructing

Suggestions for improvement

  • I think we could be more consistent with corrective action and supporting each other as a management team.

What I like about the company

The corporate office.and those who make.decisions are out of touch with the store level. Their decisions and requirements are often much more difficult to achieve than they think.

What I dislike about the company

There is no real training plan nor time for managers to conduct training for specialists and leads. I've had to learn everything as I've gone and come across it.

What I like about the company

The employees at crate and barrel are amazing management needs work. Almost every one of the BOh managers are unprofessional and do not clearly have favorites

What I dislike about the company

The management at the soho crate and barrel store. They do not have their employees best interest at heart.employees who work get dumped on while other employees who do nothing are not reprimanded for their actions.

  • The stores used to have the freedom to set up a few displays based on what types if items sold at their specific location. Now each store is expected to set up the exact same displays. It took away from the design and individuality the stores used to celebrate

What I like about the company

Great coworkers and management. Opportunities within the store to work to your strengths

What I dislike about the company

The CEO has changed a few times in the past few years. During that time they changed jobs and titles with each CEO change and it made it difficult for an employee to understand what was expected of them. The new CEO seems to have fixed that and laid out clear guidelines
