Company Culture

I definitely did not feel welcome, and the employees just don't get along.

Teamwork

Sometimes I get help on the register, but only if I call for backup on a poor radio.

Freedom to work independently

Unfortunately, if you aren't fond of an employee, you'll still have to work with them no matter what.

Internal Communication

Little to no training. On my first day, everyone expected me to know material and were shocked if I didn't.

Overall compensation for your work

It's a very strenuous job if you're not used to it - they expect you to keep track of emails/mailers, answer the phone, stock items even as you are attending customers in the register.

Environmental Friendliness

Despite it being known it was my first day, I was treated rudely for not knowing all aspects of the job.

Work-Life Balance

Somewhat considerate of my studies, but barely. They hold you for more time over your shift.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I'd suggest offering more shifts for employees who desire flexibility. Also, more training.

What I like about the company

It's message.

What I dislike about the company

They require you to do many tasks for minimum wage compared to other companies who offer more pay for the same job. It feels that employees are not appreciated.
