Suggestions for improvement
- I feel that corporate needs to be more accessible to employee suggestions, as we are the ones who work with the customers and products on a daily basis. I also feel that, based on the poor reliability of and fast turnover of employees, employees should be offered better pay, better hours, benefits, or some combination of the three. Lastly, I feel that corporate should take more responsibility for keeping store locations clean, such as hiring outside companies or employees specifically tasked with cleaning bathrooms during store hours.
What I like about the company
The managers were very polite and accommodating, especially when I was a new employee with constant questions, and when I needed time off. They appreciated hard work, always updating the Compliments Board, took employee suggestions, and defended their employees. They also brought in breakfasts and snacks on special occasions. The managers also took annual reviews very seriously, giving constructive criticism and recommending pay raises for deserving employees. Most of my co-workers were very friendly socially and helpful in the workplace.
What I dislike about the company
I felt that the corporate sector of my company did not understand their specific locations well enough to make all of the proper decisions. Our warehouse was without heat or air conditioning for long stretches of time. During reviews of our store, corporate representatives questioned employees with no knowledge of the employee's time at the company or specific duties. Lastly, weekly tractor-trailer shipments often arrived earlier or later than their scheduled time.
