Company Culture

just be the new person that puts owner on a pedestal and your okay until your replaced.

Support from management

Very poor leadership. Management is more worried about their job and keeping owner at bay instead of supporting employees.

Teamwork

Some good people that have good intentions but are not encouraged to work collaboratively.

Internal Communication

Very little and not well received.

Career Development

Just get paid

Overall compensation for your work

Salary was very fair but had no idea how to track or achieve bonus. Only to find out owner does not believe in bonuses...except for the multiple family members on payroll.

Work-Life Balance

Neutral

Company Image

just make the bank payment and forget about brand equity.

Job Security

Day to day

Challenging Work

No resources which makes the job extremely challenging.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I came in with high expectations for this company. Role brought in never materialized, but they got their connections I had

What I like about the company

A few good people that I was happy to work with. Brands that have potential.

What I dislike about the company

No Ethics, no strategy, cut throat owner who is interested in inflating ego at expense of anyone.

Company Culture

Every employee is waiting to be fired at any time depending on the owners view of them on a particular day

Support from management

Zero there is no understanding of retail or business cycle. They will buy a company and sit back and ask why business is bad

Teamwork

You must take the initiative to form your own team to accomplish anything. Most all members are looking for another company to work for.

Freedom to work independently

The management of the company doesn't know how retail business works so you are own your own

Internal Communication

Zero communication or direction given

Overall compensation for your work

compensated fairly but not given the opportunity to prove my value. Makes no sense at all

Work-Life Balance

Not unusual to be contacted at 5 on Friday for something due first thing Monday

Job Security

None -

Challenging Work

Although several of us have had a long successful career in other companies we were given less than 6 months to dramatically grow a business that had been stagnant for many years

Suggestions for improvement

  • Business 101 for Management

What I like about the company

Friendships that were made

What I dislike about the company

Virtually everything
