Suggestions for improvement

  • On site day care. Need to have incentive

Suggestions for improvement

  • I would replace the entire corporate and regional leadership staff. I would pay the employees a living wage. I would stop the abusive behavior.

What I like about the company

There is nothing positive to share. I go to work every day wondering if today is the day the company closes.

What I dislike about the company

The entire company. The owner has no clue what upper mangement does to the employees in his name. If you post on social media, anything about the company you get fired. If you call the corporate office and complain you get fired.

Company Culture

This company has no culture, 95% of management is from somewhere else and this prevents a culture from developing.

Support from management

Management has no sense of reality when providing payroll to complete assignments

Teamwork

All teamwork is from employees, this is not encouraged through the company culture

Freedom to work independently

Employees have no say in their work structure, and priorities can change by the hour.

Company Culture

There is no company culture, they seldom promote from within therefore the culture at any given store will be that of where ever the new manager came from

Support from management

Front line managers have almost no authority as every secession is micro managed from home office management

Teamwork

At least in my location teamwork is very important as we are given such a low payroll to work with we have to work well together to stay above water

Company Culture

Horrible

Support from management

Leadership team lacking in all areas

Teamwork

Non existent

Freedom to work independently

Same level of autonomy for every store and no consideration for higher volume or heavy workload

Internal Communication

Never positive

Gender Equality

HR is horrible and treat associates poorly if anything is questioned

Attitude towards older colleagues

No appreciation whatsoever!

Support from management

Managers are not allowed to manage, as all decisions are made from home office who micro manage everything
