Suggestions for improvement
- I don't think this company can be fixed. The issues here go all the way up to corporate, and if corporate had any clue what was going on at any other level they wouldn't know what to do with it anyway. I say sell the company to some owners who give a damn. One certainly gets the impression that Giant/Martins doesn't.
What I like about the company
I liked some of the people I worked with. It was good experience for working with customers directly. At Giant/Martins, any full time employee is expected to do all the manager's duties when the manager isn't in, so I learned a lot about supervising, inventory and waste management, ordering, and interacting with corporate.
What I dislike about the company
As I said, any full timer is expected to be able to do the manager's job, without the manager's pay, title, resources, or authority. Many of the part timers are college students who couldn't care less whether they show up and do their job or not so their is a lot of covering for other people at this company. It can take months to get rid of a bad or toxic employee; generally they just get transferred around to less desirable jobs trying to get them to quit on their own, which never happens. I personally was denied promotion because of a disability that the company knew about and that rarely affected my work; as of now, two months later, neither my old job or that assistant manager job in the same department has been filled. In addition I was pulled away from my work into two other departments to help them fill in for someone who didn't show up, with no training whatsoever in either department, on multiple occasions. My annual raise after a year of running my butt off for this company? 3%. In short, this company spreads its people too thin for too little reward. I don't miss them.
