Company Culture

That company only focused on Hispanics which is not a problem to me but the product needed to be for everyone.

Support from management

Like i said before you were for yourself there.

Teamwork

You basically had to defined for yourself there.

Freedom to work independently

My boos would always ride my butt and be in my face all the time about getting work done. I could not get work done with her in my face all the time.

Overall compensation for your work

No because it took my 10 yrs to make 14.75 an hr. I knew how to pretty much did just about everything in that store.

Work-Life Balance

I had no family life outside save a lot. It was work,work, work with them. I had a car accident back in 2014 because of no sleep by doing a back to back shift.

Challenging Work

I loved what i did on a daily bases. If i can go back i would but the store manager has to leave.

Suggestions for improvement

  • New store manager which just happened about 4 weeks ago. Stop hiring young kids that dont want to work these hrs.

What I like about the company

I got to meet a lot of people.

What I dislike about the company

My boss was so controlling and in my face all the time. NOT cool
