Suggestions for improvement

  • Make sure that your store managers can communicate effectively to HUMANS! Anyone with a brain can see blatant racist, and ageist tendencies. This shameful display of ignorance, heavy on the 'I'm better than you vibe'. A STORE Manager that once said "whoever's the smartest should do it". A STORE manager that says things like "those people". A STORE manager who absolutely believes that by hiring persons of a variety of ethnicities somehow proves that her racist remarks are acceptable, because " I'm not racist, look at all the different people I hired". A STORE MANAGER that will not be replaced because her store meets their metrics, and numbers are way more important than people. That's the reason for her terrible turnover.

What I like about the company

The discounts. The rate of pay is okay.

What I dislike about the company

Just a specific store manager. And I know that if you have a problem authority, you just generally don't like anyone in charge or being told what to do. I don't like being micromanaged or over hearing rude remarks made by her to other associates. As a STORE MANAGER she is not bad, but as a genuine human being she is awful.

Suggestions for improvement

  • One improvement I would suggest is that the corporate office visit the stores and appreciate their sales associates for all their hard work they do to make their stores look good. For the corporate office to not act like "royalty" when they come and make us fear them. Another improvement would be to have proper sufficient pay and pay raises. When an associate works hard throughout the year, they deserve a better pay raise and recognition than just 5 cents. Also to make the selling floor ergonomically safe for the workers so they aren't suffering with sore backs and painful knees throughout the day and not having that last throughout their life.

What I like about the company

The positive personal experience about working with this company is that you are able to interact with customers and get more experience with the customer service field. This job also allows for you to open up and socialize and meet new people.

What I dislike about the company

I disapprove of the scheduling and the non-flexible hours given. I disapprove in the lack of proper recognition and insufficient pay and pay raises a regular full-time sales associate gets.

Company Culture

The Company 'culture' does not filter down through management to staff...Management is insulting and does not care about staff...as you can see by revolving cashiers, and sale associates.

Support from management

absolutely NONE.

Teamwork

The sales associates work as a Team...Management is 'above' helping.

Internal Communication

No communication between management and sales associates...one manager tells you to do one thing...then another comes behind her and tells you to change it. Management throws each other/associates 'under the bus.'

Office / Work Environment

HORRIBLE. No recognition for work well done...only criticism.

Environmental Friendliness

NO recycling...NONE.

Work-Life Balance

It is allll about the store and bottom line....if you have a doctors appointment/emergency/get sick, you are looked down on for missing work. People come to work sick!

Challenging Work

ALL responsibility for the floor/merchandising/floor moves, put on sales associates. NO physical help from management.

Inclusive / Diverse

'no comment'.

Suggestions for improvement

  • The Chapel Hill store needs a Manager willing to roll up her sleeves, help with store issues, floor moves, merchandising, and helping associates and customers. Not hide in her office and stay on her computer.

What I like about the company

I enjoyed the sales people on the floor with me...we did our jobs well....even though management was slack.

What I dislike about the company

Absolutely NO support or professional courtesy (back up) from Assistant Manager---(now Manager)
