Company Culture

Every other week the way things are supposed to be done change, but it doesn’t get communicated until you get in trouble for doing it he old way

Support from management

Virtually non existent!!

Teamwork

It seems like everyone just does their own things

Freedom to work independently

The store managers favorite thing is micro management. He doesn’t even allow his managers to make their own decisions, he makes them regardless of if he’s their or not

Internal Communication

Your lucky to be up to date on anything, even if you ask, your told that they’ll tell you later, but later never comes. The store manager is more focused on his sales and bonuses then his employees

Overall compensation for your work

They expect you to perform at 200% for very low pay

Work-Life Balance

The atmosphere of this store is so stressful you can’t help but still feel it after you leave

Suggestions for improvement

  • Find a manager that cares more about his bonuses and more about his employees. And they need to offer better pay

What I like about the company

The discount and cool items

What I dislike about the company

Leaving work feeling like I’ve just been put down for my entire shift and feel really bad about myself

The following perks were offered to me

Employee discounts is offered

Teamwork

As a replenishment team member, the only support there is as a "team" is one to two days a week (during truck process). Expect to work independently with little to no support. Due to "scheduling" and planogram resets, tend to set a the tone for hours, can also set a negative trend for the word "team" when one person is scheduled to complete such tasks for the entire week.

Gender Equality

The male to female ratio is absolutely horrible. At this location there are only three male employees, that's including the Store Manager. There have been moments when basic store needs (i.e. cleaning, lifting a box, climbing a ladder to assist a customer, taking out the trash etc.) may feel subjugated to the male co workers only because of the lack of male team members to assist and/or the lack of initiative to execute such basic needs from female employees.

Overall compensation for your work

With major experience within the retail field you may NOT expect compensation based on such experience.

Environmental Friendliness

Team members are very friendly and nice. Not many managers can be the same.

Challenging Work

Day to day execution is not challenging. Scheduling, lack of staff, and time/hours make "easy" tasks challenging to complete.

Inclusive / Diverse

Not many people of color/diverse backgrounds at this particular location.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Compensate accordingly to those individuals who are and have the experience/ed necessary to provide great results for the business.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Better pay, cheaper insurance, more incentives. Paid maternity leave

What I like about the company

Sometimes when you reach goals, you get positive feedback, not always but sometimes. I like the fact that might get another raise soon

What I dislike about the company

The lack of pay, the fact that we are always short staffed. How long it take upper management to get back to us
