Suggestions for improvement

  • More paid time off, less strict rules and a calmer (not so stressful) environment.

What I like about the company

It is an okay place to work, you get a profit sharing check every 13 months with the company which is a plus I suppose.

What I dislike about the company

Strict policies and difficult manager/employee relations.

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

Internal Communication

Not very good communication at all

Career Development

forget it, very political

Work-Life Balance

ABSOLUTELY TERRIBLE FOR MANAGEMENT TEAMS

Job Security

Job security was very good but has been spiraling downward

Challenging Work

The employees and management work very hard, but rewards are a question

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,

What I like about the company

Charitable

What I dislike about the company

There are excellent managers and there are ones that think they can just walk all over people. Almost inhumane. Very bad treatment.
