Reviews

Company Culture

They don't care too much about the lower level employees, such as Store Managers

Company Image

I am very loyal to the person above me

Challenging Work

There is always tons of tasking with not much time to complete

Suggestions for improvement

  • They need to raise what they are paying people in a store level. They aren't up to par with other companies

What I like about the company

I met my best friend there. We've worked together before with this company. I left the company and came back 3 years later. We are an amazing team

What I dislike about the company

I wish higher ups cared more about the bottom line, not meaning money. Happy employees means happy customers.

Company Culture

This company was a fairly good place to work. They expected a lot from employees without the willingness to pay for the work. However the job itself was fun as well as a learning experience.

Challenging Work

Not a difficult job, assisting customers and keeping area clean.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I believe recycling would be a good addition as well as the opportunity to move up in the company.

What I like about the company

This was a fun place to work, the experiences with the customers and employees as well as the satisfaction of creating art out of clothing for displays was quite specia.

What I dislike about the company

I believe this company would be better if they compensated their workers better or did not give such short notice on assignments.

Freedom to work independently

District managers only came when something was wrong

Internal Communication

Very unclear instructions

Gender Equality

I never noticed any discrimination

Career Development

District managers were often dishonest about growth opportunities and pay

Office / Work Environment

Our heat was broken for 2 years in the stock room

Environmental Friendliness

We always recycled cardboard and had eco friendly cleaning products

Job Security

Stores were closing and people would get fired randomly for no reason

Handicapped Accessibility

They did well with this.

Challenging Work

Very high expectations with minimal resources

Suggestions for improvement

  • More communication between district managers and store managers. Perhaps make districts smaller so that dm's can know what is going on in their stores. I had 4 different DM's in 2 years .

What I like about the company

I met lots of great people, and I truly enjoyed the products we carried.

What I dislike about the company

Deadlines and projects were nearly impossible to meet with so little payroll and resources. Management was almost always forced to work off the clock to meet deadlines.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I would improve the work load every week. Price changes and floor moves should be light every week but could do major moves for each season or holiday.

What I like about the company

I loved the managers I worked with. They were very motivating and they had a lot to teach and were great leaders. I gained so much knowledge and experiences working with them. I’m very grateful for the opportunity I had to work for such a great team.

What I dislike about the company

I didn’t like the big changes we had to make every week. It was a lot of work to do for such a small team of people and some weeks it was just impossible. We’d have to stay and work over time but then corporate would get mad at us for working over time hours to get the work done. They should have given us reasonable work loads based on the hours we were given and keeping in mind we don’t have just the busy work to do but also helping customers to the best of our ablilities.

The following perks were offered to me

Suggestions for improvement

  • Corporate involvement with hiring new management that promotes team effort and learning rather than degrades employees with little experience

What I like about the company

A positive experience I had at this company was my former employees. While management was difficult to work with, the employees were always positive. Not only did they work hard to assure our customers were taken care of, but they also made sure everyone was having a good time at work. I was also able to assist regular costumers who appreciated our enthusiasm at the work place.

What I dislike about the company

Corporate and management lacked communication with their employees. When receiving customer complaints, management refused to listen to the employee's point of view. When there would be issues within the store, management would rather forget about the complaint rather than listen to the employee. The lack of communication from management made the environment stressful and difficult to work in.
