Company Culture

Culture & environment could be outstanding under proper directive!

Support from management

Expectations are set and clear without specific goals in mind. The destination would be good to see so I know if the picture of my area fits with our goals.

Teamwork

Much of the team is strong, but seems to be many dead weight persons who ride the successes of a chosen few

Freedom to work independently

Independent work is often a must since there is not much floor personnel to assist.

Company Culture

There used to be a culture many years ago. Now they just fire everyone and hire Sports Authority people (since Sports Authority went out of business).

The company loves to put obstacles in the way of associates getting tasks done. Quick example, they came up with a thing called Power Hour, which was from 1130-1pm. Designed to help as many customers as possible. But we were being held to also get tons of tasks done and got in trouble for doing them during Power Hour. Then they tell us that we're not allowed to do tasks after 10am, which makes it impossible to get anything done. THEN they decided that everywhere off the sales floor was a no-fly zone, meaning we couldn't go back and get clothes for customers or anything during customer hours. These are just a few things, there are about 100 more ways they seem to try to prevent us from doing our jobs. It is incredibly frustrating. I really hope someone from there reads this and possibly cares enough to fix these major issues!

Support from management

The expectations are as unrealistic as it gets. They fired and pushed out so many associates that it is impossible to get the work done that is needed. Then they tell you that you're doing a bad job because the work isn't getting done.
