Company Culture

Fear rules at Sammy's.

Support from management

Though there was efficient support from management during rush hours, anything requiring managerial support was seldom handled in a professional, timely, or courteous way.

Teamwork

There was much cooperation between staff members.

Internal Communication

Small notes on the cork board during rush hours do not an announcement make.

Gender Equality

Management did not take enough care in selecting a store manager who had a long concerning history of harassment. Complaints were filed from within our company, but were hardly handled competently.

Attitude towards older colleagues

This is not very applicable in the service industry, as the overwhelming majority of people applying are young.

Career Development

This was highly lacking at Sammy's.

Overall compensation for your work

Sammy's has been sued for not paying wages accurately.

Environmental Friendliness

This was a large opportunity for improvement for upper management.

Company Image

Almost everyone hated working for Sammy Ladeki.

Job Security

No one felt their job was very safe. Several men were let go because the manager admittedly wanted more girls in the job to harass.

Handicapped Accessibility

This is not applicable.

Challenging Work

This was due more to my personal approach to the customer rather than a culture of pride.

Inclusive / Diverse

There was not much diversity there, though I don't feel that this was the company's fault but was more a byproduct of the demographic of the location.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Lead with respect and not fear.

What I like about the company

The company's image is actually quite decent despite its internal issues.

What I dislike about the company

There's a strong culture of fear from the top to the bottom.
