Company Culture

There were compliments for a job well done. Each associate was treated differently, as there were obvious favorites, but everyone was trusted.

Support from management

Management expected much with little training.

Teamwork

Associates tried their best to work well together and mostly it turned out well, until one associate would walk away and you find out how they really feel.

Freedom to work independently

Management expected alot to get done in one shift, but didn't schedule a relief so that you COULD get it done

Internal Communication

Always kept up to date on how business was. Always told of local/ regional contests between stores.

Gender Equality

Women treated same as men, and sometimes even better

Attitude towards older colleagues

Our management had difficulty relating to anyone who was older. Would joke around with the younger employees but there was clearly an ageism issue.

Career Development

Mandatory computer class every month. But no personal one on one training

Overall compensation for your work

Good starting salaries. Raises are very very low. They expect alot for for what they pay. There are commissions that you CAN earn

Office / Work Environment

Registers were so out of date that they crashed frequently.

Work-Life Balance

Nobody likes closing every night but that's how the schedule worked. Early day hours were given to the favorite employees. They didn't really care if you had to be home for your family. A whole weekend off was almost impossible

Company Image

Some employees speak very fondly (favored by management) others felt as though they were discriminated against for various reasons.

Job Security

I took a day off and was terminated. No job security

Handicapped Accessibility

They will provide options if disability is temporary. Otherwise you will have to seek employment elsewhere

Workplace Safety

Sufficient training was always in place to prevent any work related injuries and were always up to OSHA standards

Challenging Work

I accomplished much and was commended for my efforts, although they easily forget that you brought the numbers up...sometimes singlehandedly

Inclusive / Diverse

Not in the store I was in.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Treat people fairly and equally, especially if they need disability accommodations

What I like about the company

I liked working with older people who were around my age

What I dislike about the company

Started hiring much younger crew. Not everybody was treated equally as there were favorites and age discrimination
