Support from Management

No support. They just tell you what you're going to do then just sit in their office.

Communication

Very little communication

Career Development

Too much hiring from outside the company instead of promoting from within.

Overall Compensation for your work

Other companies pay higher salaries.

Work-Life Balance

Hardly any. Too many nights and weekends required. And open on Thanksgiving? Family should always come first. Also, associates that have been loyal and dedicated for 20 + years should enjoy special perks such as no nights or weekends.

Support from Management

There is no support. They tell you what to do. That's it.

Teamwork

Everyone is only concerned about themselves

Attitude towards older colleagues

Not at all. Associates who have been with the company 20 + years should be given certain benefits for their loyalty and dedication to the company. A higher discount, no nights or no weekends, etc.

Career Development

I've been stuck at the same level for 6 years. Tried to move up numerous times but applicants from outside the company have gotten the positions.

Company culture

There is a clear division in management and adminstration. Adminstration does not get the same treatment as management.

Support from Management

No, there is no career path provided, nor is there a job description for each role in adminstrative.

Teamwork

There is a lack of communication given to adminstrative personal.

Level of Autonomy

Yes, most of the time. There is no issue with micromanaging that I see.
