Company Culture

The culture is changing for the worse. Long time employee are leaving and or looking to leave. The company does not back up their long tenured employees. Ex. Whitinsville Mass, company let go a very strong store manager because of a problem employee that the company never did anything on their part to fix

Support from management

management is some stores are very good

Teamwork

Teams can never jell together because of the high turnover

Suggestions for improvement

  • Ownership needs to get back to the basics and see what is really going on with their leaders. There is a huge disconnect and their reputation is failing,

Suggestions for improvement

  • Train Management better, Let them know that stealing is not acceptable under any circumstance

What I like about the company

The only positive thing that I can say about Ocean State Job Lot is that there was flexibility in schedule. I needed mothers hours and they accommodated that.

What I dislike about the company

The management was poorly trained. There was a lot of inconsistency and miscommunication. The management expected the associates to follow policy but did not follow the policies themselves.
