Not the greatest

2.06

Company Culture

The company does not contribute to a work climate of fairness and trust. They only call to tell you what you are doing right and want corrective action taken for things out of the employees control.

Support from management

Anyone above the store manager was not very helpful. They saw things their own way and never listened to the people in the store doing the actual work. More worried about numbers than facts.

Teamwork

We had a great team of employees within our store. We hired them and trained them, we were like a family!

Freedom to work independently

The workload was fairly distributed. We were a team and got things done together.

Internal Communication

There were plenty of meetings to tell you results and give proper training. It was a lot of repeated information though.

Office / Work Environment

The atmosphere was fine. Computers needed updating but everything else was ok.

Environmental Friendliness

They are not environmentally friendly.

Work-Life Balance

Families were taken into consideration because we all had them. We were all I school to and our schedules were made around those schedules. They did make you work more during the holidays but it is retail.

Challenging Work

I was proud of most of the things we sold. They were good products.

Inclusive / Diverse

No

Suggestions for improvement

  • Pay the employees better. Promote the people that deserve to be promoted. Get rid of the people that you know don't deserve to be there.

What I like about the company

The products we sold were good for you

What I dislike about the company

They are very unfair to their employees
