Internal Communication

Company went bankrupt and nothing was communicated to us until everything was said and done. Shame.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I would roll out company wide training programs and classes. I would make sure job roles and responsibilities are clearly communicated and understood. I would allow staff to come in later and work later (or come in earlier and leave earlier) to accommodate various schedules. I would hold regular quarterly company meetings or stand ups to go over state of business, financials, marketing initiates, etc.

What I like about the company

Great team overall, everyone always worked toward the same mutual goals, great time bonding, make lifelong friends. I also loved working for a big corporate company that people knew. Employee discount was great! Absolutely loved and miss the community service/volunteer opportunities and company events.

What I dislike about the company

I strongly believe in implementing strong training programs for every department. Work hours should have been slightly more flexible to accommodate everyone's different schedules, needs, routines, commutes, etc. Corporate communication was a joke and that was the root of the downfall, I believe.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I definitely of made the environment more focused on making the employees want to come to work. More often than not companies fail because their employees don't want to give a full effort. If an employee is appreciated and feels they have value then they will go out of their way to do more. I think a lot of companies care more about the bottom line and forget about the fact that it is people who keep their companies going. I think people who go stores and purchase from a company a far more likely to keep coming back if the atmosphere is a good one.

What I like about the company

I enjoyed the people I worked with a great deal. The people I worked with were all extremely nice.

What I dislike about the company

I disapproved of how the overall company was managed. I felt as though they asked too much of their employees. I also felt like people who were running the company were trying to make every store the same. I also think they were far too aggressive when it came to memberships and loyalty programs. People would get spoken to if they had a low signup percentage and that would cause several instances in which employees would cheat the system in order to keep their job.
