Toxic Work Environment

1.89

Teamwork

Q.Do colleagues work well together? A.Depends on the department you work in. Q. Do colleagues interact in an honest and direct manner? A. Honest, no. but an overly fake attitude of friendliness is what will help you climb the ladder here.

Communication

"need to know"

Attitude towards older colleagues

The company forces out the older workers.

Overall Compensation for your work

Responsibilities high, pay low.

Company Image

no.

Job security

Unstable. everyone expects to be fired or let go. Don't ask questions, keep your head down.

Challenging Work

no and no.

What I like about the company

n/a

What I dislike about the company

Cares more about making money off their employees than actually caring about their employees. If sales are bad, they have an associate % off sale and phrase it like its the highest % off of the year, but its technically not. Just worded to mislead their own employees so they can make up for previous losses.
