Suggestions for improvement
- A different store manager. Incentives for selling in specialist departments. Employee rewards again for no work place injuries. More freedom to be crafty and less pushing of sale items at the register, rather the freedom to upsale on the floor.
What I like about the company
In the beginning I worked with a team that cared about success. I was trained well and moved from cashier to stocking to sale employee to certified framer quickly. Received training in all departments. There was incentives in place to make sales in framing and I loved what I did.
What I dislike about the company
They took away a great deal of training at the end. Our computer systems became outdated. The entire structure of the company changed and I didn't feel like I was in an arts and crafts store with creativity anymore. They took away bonus incentives to meet sales in framing which caused that department to suffer. The manager they brought in to the store was not a good manager she refused to work alongside her employees. She didn't give fair evaluations on achievement, was great at passing the blame, she pocketed a lot of money by aloting less payroll hours to actual tasks putting a ton of pressure to get resets done in not enough time and then benifeted personally by "saving on her payroll" which resulted in understaffed store and overworked employees.
