Suggestions for improvement

  • The store hours could be more conducive to employee life. If a company wants to make an employee feel valued then show they matter through listening to them, showing empathy and valuing their feedback. Taking the suggestions and trying them within reason.

What I like about the company

Management is flexible when I have needed flexibility when life situations have come up. I am able to be honest about issues at work and we w orl together to figure out a solution

What I dislike about the company

The lack of communication. Doing the same thing over expecting a different result.

Company Culture

It's not about what you know...but who you know

Support from management

No communication

Teamwork

Everyone out for themselves

Freedom to work independently

Absolutely not! Micro-managing is rampant

Suggestions for improvement

  • Stop cutting payroll. There's not enough associates to help the customers now.

What I like about the company

Decent discount

What I dislike about the company

Raises are a joke. No advancement. Work/Home life ratio a joke.

Suggestions for improvement

  • They need to get a visual personnel who is kinder to associates instead of treating them the way she does. The heating/air issues need to be fixed also

What I like about the company

I like that when I am in need of help it is just a phone call away. I like that when a personal emergency arises management is very flexible and takes over what I am doing so that I can concentrate on the emergency and leave if necessary.
