Suggestions for improvement

  • You get what you pay for. Don't bargain when you know you are getting good quality people. Upper mgmt. needs to come down to earth. Have some forward thinking - be proactive not reactive.

Gender Equality

Avoided promoting women into management because unloading trucks was so rigorous.

Career Development

No staff development.

Overall compensation for your work

Company used petty excuses to deny raises over multiple years. Abused exempt employees and overtime requirements.

Work-Life Balance

Recruited people with outdoor experience and then worked them so much that they could no longer enjoy the outdoors themselves.

Handicapped Accessibility

Often received complaints from customers with disabilities. The store was tiny but we carried the same merchandise for a store half again as big as ours.

Workplace Safety

Faulty roofs, broken steps but auditors were fierce in making sure that we had company approved box knives.
