Reviews

Company Culture

The culture was okay, but there was a lot of negativity

Support from management

The culture was okay, but there was a lot of negativity

Teamwork

I did this well

Freedom to work independently

I do trust people but not that much

Internal Communication

I communicate well

Gender Equality

We were very diverse

Attitude towards older colleagues

We were quite diverse

Office / Work Environment

Very comfortable

Environmental Friendliness

There was concern for recycling

Work-Life Balance

They let me get off when I needed to

Handicapped Accessibility

Sometimes it was an issue, not always

Workplace Safety

Not so safe. We had many robberies

Challenging Work

The customers were the hardest part

Inclusive / Diverse

There was diversity

Suggestions for improvement

  • I would get rid of coupons at all locations and eliminate the management at several locations. I think that no coupons would be so much easier for the customers. I would also strengthen loss prevention standards, as our store sucked at that.

What I like about the company

I met my best friend there, and I got to be the best sales person. I ranked #1 in the store 3 years in a row as top credit salesman, so I got to learn about that a lot.

What I dislike about the company

Get rid of the coupons and the management at my location. They were the biggest thing I hated about the company.

Company Culture

Not family friendly

Support from management

Too busy to deal with associates

Teamwork

No staff means no team

Internal Communication

Too much mothing meaningful.

Career Development

We are all just robots

Overall compensation for your work

Minimum wage. People who have worked there for 15+ years make mininmum wage.

Office / Work Environment

No privacy. Plays favorites.

Environmental Friendliness

Wasteful. They make thousands of signs a week.

Work-Life Balance

Must work all the time. No weekends off unless your on vacation. No family life.

Challenging Work

The only challenge is to go our physical ability. That place is so micro managed from a corporate level. They tell you where to stand.

Inclusive / Diverse

Again. Unless your a favorite you are not included in anything.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Treat employees fairly. Let the stores make decisions for themselves. Making people work these crazy schedules is a bad practice. Treat people like they have a brain and staff stores to be successful. No help all week to do work but people scheduled all weekend and then tell them whete to stand make no sense. No wonder this company is doomed to fail.

What I like about the company

Not much

What I dislike about the company

No work life balance. When hired or as jobs are advertised they say flexible scheduling. That's not true. You will be scheduled whenever and that's just too bad for you.
