Company Culture

It used to be very employee and team centered, nowadays it's high expectations with no reward or recognition.

Internal Communication

Constant marketing changes and weekly newsletter does not cover all new events.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Give the stores more hours. The cuts in hours only diminish team moral. 1. Part timers get even less hours = higher turnover. 2. Covering shifts becomes near impossible last minute and call offs are brutal. 3. Dont expect the entire workload to get done for projects that were just barely being done before the hours were cut.
