Company Culture

There is no trust here. The higher up the ladder you go, the more condescending they become.

Support from management

The company as a whole is very negative in their management style. Ideas are not shared. It is more of a do it this way or else atmosphere.

Teamwork

The people in the store work well together. That is more from the store managers hiring people that suit the atmosphere of the others working there.

Freedom to work independently

The workload is not split evenly. It is more on who can get the job done quicker. May not be done the best, but who can finish it first.

Internal Communication

There is more information than needed communicated. Stores are micro-managed from the top down. Emails were to be checked 4 times a day and responses on each one that the tasks were completed. Doesn't sound bad, unless you count that there may only be four people in the store at the time.

Gender Equality

Men and women were treated equally. It is very much a female dominated industry, but men were promoted equally as well.

Career Development

Management was always turning over. There were always room to advance, but it was due to people leaving because of the stress and workload than actually being promoted.

Overall compensation for your work

Pay in management was good. Hourly employees was a little better than minimum wage. But I went a couple of years without a raise. If profits, audit scores, or inventory goals are not met, just missing one can keep you from a raise.

Office / Work Environment

Stores are normally in great condition. This is surprising since most are in older shopping centers.

Work-Life Balance

If you are in management, no consideration is given to this. If you are single and like very fast paced then it's no problem. But not for those that have small children.

Company Image

Most employees are very disgruntled about the lack of staff available. Most customers complain about that as well.

Job Security

There are no full time positions in the company now other than management. They are constantly changing positions around looking for solutions to staffing and salaries.

Inclusive / Diverse

Don't plan on your ideas being heard or accepted.

What I like about the company

The people that I worked with was the best part of working there. They were very creative in the things they could do, but with a lack of time to be able to translate that into their work is a shame.

What I dislike about the company

It is a task driven company. The number of tasks to do in a week were more than could be accomplished. Tasks had to be done while the store was closed so early mornings and overnights were frequent.
