Company Culture

The inverted pyramid they instill as a newcomer is quickly realized to be a fallacy.

Support from management

The goals are often unrealistic with them telling you that your job is on the line of you don't meet them daily.

Teamwork

It's easy to work with some of the other employees, however, management is a very different story.

Internal Communication

The communication tends to be more blunt demands

Office / Work Environment

When upper management comes through the store changes. Things that could be considered fire hazards are moved. Emergency protocols are somewhat of a joke.

Work-Life Balance

If someone calls out and you can't come in you can expect to be fired the next time you make a small mistake. You are replaceable and they let you know.

Challenging Work

Anytime you are working with customers can be challenging but you get a sense of accomplishment once they check out.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Better management. The ideals of the company are golden. It would be a good company if they were carried out. In my experience they need to improve significantly.

What I like about the company

The company sounds and looks good at a glance

What I dislike about the company

Unfortunately looks can be deceiving

Attitude towards older colleagues

The turnover rate is too high for long-serving colleagues to be appreciated or supported.

Company Image

The company itself has great ideals and morals. Unfortunately, the individual stores are not held to the same standards.

Job Security

While the risk for positions to be eliminated is rare management is constantly letting you know that you are easily replaced. Even if your sales numbers are good, "There is always someone who could do better."

Workplace Safety

I worked at this location for over three years and could not tell you were one fire extinguisher was. The stock locations are fire hazards on any given day, with the exception of days higher management was known to come.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Better management.

What I like about the company

The company itself seems to try and be socially responsible and eco friendly.

What I dislike about the company

Management does not support the ideals and morals of the company and its founders. Good management makes a good work place.
