Company Culture

A lot of people who spoke & understood little english.

Support from management

No one ever shows you how to complete projects.

Teamwork

Ha ha.

Internal Communication

90% negative communication

Attitude towards older colleagues

Saw them try to force a 60 year old to quit. After 13 years with the company.

Career Development

Very little in store promotions. Was told nobody ever got a. 50 cent raise.

Overall compensation for your work

They couldn't pay me enough to work there again.

Environmental Friendliness

Never saw or heard anything to do with the environment.

Work-Life Balance

Seemed not to care about life outside of work.

Company Image

I was very unhappy here.

Job Security

If you don't finish a project in the unreasonable time they set, you are threatened with demotion.

Challenging Work

Huge workload. Unrealistic time constraints. Little encouragement.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I would hire people who care about more than their bonuses.

What I like about the company

Co workers were the best. Great people who were all struggling to do the job of 5 people. That is the only thing I loved. The people I worked with.

What I dislike about the company

The unrealistic mandatory goals. The lack of good team managers. The managers were rarely seen lending a hand with their team. They were always in the back offices. I worked retail all of my life & this company was by far the worst I ever worked for. I had several employees & 1 manager who absolutely agreed with this assessment. They throw employees & managers alike, to the wolves, with no training, no handbook on how to do what they expect. My manager would say 'This MUST be done in 30 minutes'. But declined to show me how it could be done. Saying, 'I already did my time in the trenches'. Also, when I dropped a glass vase at the register, because I was developing a very serious carpal tunnel problem, a manager blocked my exit, sayingI could not leave until the line of customers was gone. Even though I stated that the pain in my hands was making it hard to grasp items to ring up. The manager told me, 'Yea, my hands hurt too. But you cannot leave until all the customers have been rung up'. This is unacceptable behavior from management. I ended up having 3 surgeries for carpal tunnel syndrome.

  • Just needs a cleaning. There are no issues with policies or culture.

What I like about the company

The company is helpful and welcoming. The job is simple. The pay is above minimum wage.

What I dislike about the company

There are parts of the store that have not been cleaned since the opening over a decade ago. Most likely not a nation-wide problem, but the only problem I have with the company.

What I like about the company

They are for the most part very understanding when you need a day off or are sick. Unless they are short staffed that day. I have called out a lot and they are understanding of it. They allow you to take a day off in advance if you are working that day and have something to do.

What I dislike about the company

They are very on top of employees about getting customers to open up the company’s store card

Suggestions for improvement

  • My retail associates would be appropriately compensated for the work that they put in. They would make above minimum wage and wages would start at $15, with coordinators making more because of their experience and work load. I would not allow corporate employees to make decisions on the store level because they are unaware of the day to day issues.

What I like about the company

The people that I work with are the reason that I am still with the company. Although I am not compensated well for my work, the environment and people is what keeps me. We are a little family and everyone cares about each other, we understand each other's struggles. Retail is hard work but when you have positive people around you, it makes it worthwhile.

What I dislike about the company

The compensation of sales associates and coordinators. Management makes well above what the rest of the company makes but the sales associates are the ones who keep the company going. Those in corporate make rules for the stores even when they themselves have never worked retail. I find it unfair for them to make decisions based on information that may not be accurate.

  • More benefits. Part time employees received no benefits whatsoever. I would make sure part time employees had reasonable benefits and pay was sufficient. I would make the staff more diverse. I would not allow ‚Äòcliques' in my staff.

What I like about the company

I had a lot of positive experiences with coworkers at work. My managers were always there to talk to me if I needed to , or if I needed help with something. They were more than willing to work with me about my schedule due to a second job. Pay was better than average and always an opportunity for more hours.

What I dislike about the company

My manager refused to hire men into our store. Only women and that made a lot of things difficult in the stocking & recieving room where I worked most of the time. There was favoritism between a couple of managers and other employees. There was a lot of drama and nonsense also but that happens anywhere you work I suppose.
