Suggestions for improvement

  • Update. Become human and treat people fairly, or close.

What I like about the company

Nothing.

What I dislike about the company

They clearly preferred younger employees. They have no diversity in their hiring, and they operate in the 1990's, having no regard for the environment, only because it's cheaper for them to continue this way. They only pay store managers any kind of wage. No other employee can afford to live on their wages.

Support from management

Support from co-management, but from no one above you

Teamwork

It's frowned upon to work together

Internal Communication

Very little discussion about tasks, or explanation about tasks. Just told to get it done.

Gender Equality

Girls are cashiers, footwear or apparel workers, no other departments

Overall compensation for your work

Terrible compensation for the tasks given. People hired in were making same, close, or more than people being promoted from within/have been working there for years

Environmental Friendliness

Nothing gets recycled, truck loads of cardboard get thrown away each week

Work-Life Balance

Decent scheduling with the ability to take days off

Company Image

Looks like a garage sale

Handicapped Accessibility

No wheelchairs and definitely not enough room to roll one through aisles

Workplace Safety

OSHA would shut it down if they ever saw how things are put together, or how things are done. Also no AED on site

Challenging Work

Same tasks every day/week

Inclusive / Diverse

In 10 years of working there, there were only 2 people of differing races

Suggestions for improvement

  • Close the divide between associates and management and higher, no reason to treat people like dirt, especially when they're the ones doing the work. Don't promote people that consistently get complaints.

What I like about the company

They work around school schedules well

What I dislike about the company

Very little room for moving up, especially for women. Very monotonous work, and as much as they care about customer service, the focus is most certainly on tasks. Employees frequently get chastised for not completing work, even when they were helping customers. Certain people get promoted that have no business in getting a higher position. Very little acknowledgement for great sales.

Support from management

4 store managers in 3 years. The DM would rather hide or continue building on a lie than to take responsibility for even his own decisions. He is manipulative won't stand behind his front line managers.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Support the store staff. Stop treating employees like an assembly line item

What I like about the company

The employees discount is pretty generous and gets better during the holiday season.

What I dislike about the company

Management support, and promoting from within only happens at a cost
