Company Culture

The stores act as a family given how much time you spend together. This is both a positive and a negative. You are expected to be 100% personally invested in success and work/life balance is a major issue.

Support from management

It’s very much a boss-first mentality

Work-Life Balance

Nights, weekends, holidays are all part of the game. They say that you have personal holidays in lieu of these but do not allow them to be scheduled.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Stop the micromanagement and allow your teams to run the stores.

Teamwork

There is absolutely no team work within this company. The union rules that this company follows are horrendous.

Internal Communication

Management seems to over-communicate with each other and corporate but seems to have a problem communicating with department heads and associates within the store.

Career Development

Although there is growth within the company, the union rules are created to hold you down for a long period of time.

Overall compensation for your work

Lowest pay scale i have ever seen.

Challenging Work

work is not challenging at all.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Management should look at the employees as people and not a number.

What I like about the company

I like the people that I work with

What I dislike about the company

They treat employees as a number. Work us to death to make their own personal sales goals while it's ok for management to sit in the office and have pizza parties with each other.
