Company Culture

Not that great. They mislead about having a culture

Support from management

Unrealistic expectations, they won't market their own product and expect us to market for them. They dont take a good stand on good work or ideas. Employees are wrong no matter what, even when customers are nasty or rude.

Teamwork

no team work, everyone out for themself

Freedom to work independently

"Just do what your told" is the concept

Internal Communication

no communication, each directive changes from one moment to the other.

Gender Equality

Women are treated better

Attitude towards older colleagues

poor attitude towards older people.

Career Development

no future

Office / Work Environment

Lousy. No A/C in the summer no heat in the winter, dirty place.

Company Image

no

Job Security

Unstable, I am surprised the company is still in business.

Company Culture

They were getting lost somewhere. Rules were made and changed with each managers directive. They seemed confused.

Support from management

Unrealistic expectations for the hours and pay given to employees.

Teamwork

Staff started to look out for themselves.

Freedom to work independently

Nobody moves, nobody gets hurt mentality.

Internal Communication

The poorest training experienced. Unrealistic goal setting.

Gender Equality

The district manager told store manager that he put most of the women full time because he wanted the "woman's touch" in his stores.

Attitude towards older colleagues

barely any respect for older people.

Career Development

not a good experience. training was very poor, good opportunities were few and far between. Not much room for advancement.

Overall compensation for your work

No raises at all.

Office / Work Environment

Restrooms were almost dirty each day. Store over all barely adequate in cleanliness.

Environmental Friendliness

Most everything went into the dumpster.

Work-Life Balance

Not enough hours to do anything with.

Company Image

No I was not proud to work there. Corporate did not advertise and expected employees to sell, sell, sell and the employees do all the networking.

Job Security

no job security at all.

Handicapped Accessibility

not much for them.

Workplace Safety

ok safe wise.

Challenging Work

While I was proud of the work I did, management rarely gave any credit to employees that did good work. The job was not challenging at all.

Inclusive / Diverse

Never supported employees ideas.
