Company Culture

Managers always at fault for failing to meet corp. expectations.

Support from management

Unwilling to accept input from managers in the field.

Teamwork

Inter-store managers very supportive of one another.

Freedom to work independently

Micromanagement from corporate. No control over own store.

Internal Communication

Ample communications, but not necessarily positive in nature.

Gender Equality

Most store managers are women, though not necessarily given a great deal of respect

Attitude towards older colleagues

Seniors frequently hired, but not particularly appreciated

Career Development

Fairly good at promoting from within

Overall compensation for your work

Below market salaries, paid on time, employee paid benefits only

Office / Work Environment

Systems are not up to date. Antiquated accounting practices - extraordinary amount of unnecessary reporting required.

Environmental Friendliness

No local or regional needs recognized

Work-Life Balance

Paid based on forty hour week - 45 hours required. Most managers work 60 +/- hours per week.

Company Image

Great place to shop - not a great place to work

Job Security

Only if all sales goals are met, recovery achieved, and reporting done - expectations with little or no support

Handicapped Accessibility

Nature of job such it requires great amount of physical ability. Believe the company would comply with accessibilty requirements if forced to

Workplace Safety

Yes - though not necessarily security. Too few employees on site at any one time

Challenging Work

Tasks are neverending and expectations are high - next to impossible to achieve success

Inclusive / Diverse

NO opposing opinions are given credence - field experience never considered

Suggestions for improvement

  • Need to develop a better understanding of customer needs and provide necessary tools for managers to be successful

What I like about the company

Not much

What I dislike about the company

Disregard for managers' expertise, time, or needs
