Suggestions for improvement

  • Executive management should be more involved, especially in IT. IT was almost always at the end of the line for office space, new hire allocations, etc. Often felt like IT had little to no representation at the executive level.

What I like about the company

Flexible working hours. If you wanted to go home at noon, nobody cared as long as you could get your work done and be available if needed.

What I dislike about the company

Massive culture of nepotism stretching back decades. Members of “the Family” often can and do treat other employees with disrespect with zero consequence.

People tend to get ignored if they don’t aggressively stand up for themselves. Performance reviews and salary increases were few and far between.

Executive management tends to ignore problems, and shift blame. IT tends to be aloof, because it has no relationship with the rest of the business. Results in poor relationships between IT and other departments.

Teamwork

Team work from a corporate level is not there at all.

Internal Communication

They are getting better but still very in the past as far as technology, they just barely have upgraded stores to iPads but still rely heavily on fax machines......

Career Development

There is no path for development with this company, the so-so development program they have isn’t even a development program it’s more of check list for operations called an AOR (area of responsibilities)

Overall compensation for your work

I worked two years as a Store Manager without any raises. They expect to pay you the bare minimum while posting record sales for the year.

Office / Work Environment

The store teams are not appreciated by the executives and district/regional teams.

Work-Life Balance

The only reason there is any work like balance is because most of us in California are hourly, and there is no over time allowed.

Company Image

The product is amazing! And the brand could be great if the executives actually appreciated their hard working store teams.

Job Security

The company is a growing and expanding.

Challenging Work

Almost to challenging, and no support from corporate or upper management to help resolve issues, corporate adds to the problems if anything. Upper management just tells you to work faster and harder while we flood you with to much work, oh and we are cutting your payroll.

Suggestions for improvement

  • They need to be realistic in payroll expectations, I have worked in retail for years and understand that cutting payroll is important to the bottom line, but there has to be a balance and you can’t expect your store managers to work through lunch breaks with no other people working just to make a payroll %

What I like about the company

The product is amazing! And the customers are the best!

What I dislike about the company

There is no development with this company, and you might be willing to work hard if the executives at least appreciated the store teams.
