Suggestions for improvement

  • They could increase all hourly worker's pay to $15 an hour, as Target has done for their employers. It makes us feel as though we aren't appreciated when we see other large retailers offering larger wages than we are given.

What I like about the company

The work life balance offered with this company is a wonderful perk.

What I dislike about the company

Hourly workers are paid very, very little. They start you out at minimum wage, which for the state of GA is only $9/hour. It's not even close to a livable wage.

Company Culture

They’re nice to work with but only look out for themselves

Teamwork

Always working together at some point

Freedom to work independently

We all work independently from time to time

Internal Communication

They were always open to listen

Gender Equality

Women get talked down to more

Attitude towards older colleagues

We do have our share of older employees

Work-Life Balance

I work mostly but a good balance

Challenging Work

Customers can be a hassle sometimes

Inclusive / Diverse

We can all speak freely

Suggestions for improvement

  • Hire more people. We have many people running around instead of in their department or on register instead of their department

What I like about the company

Managers are always looking and listening to make sure that your voice is heard. Customers can be an absolute delight, which balance the nasty and rude customers.

What I dislike about the company

The amount of absences. Sometimes we cannot control our sickness or a impromptu doctors visit that is too soon to request the day off.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Their was a example of just that at the store I worked at. A older female co-worker that had worked her way up to store manager. She was promoted during my employment. She had been with the company close to 15 years and started as a store associate so that was great to see

Challenging Work

Understaffed so I led two departments as well as maintaing the floor and registers. Never could one associate do a satisfactory job

Suggestions for improvement

  • I truly never had any issues myself or witnessed any issues with someone else. However I also know the world enough to know it was happening. By chance at this particular job I missed it. All chance.

What I like about the company

Being able to leave a job on good terms more confident in that particular industry because of the knowledge and experiences you gained while working their can only mean you are more attractive on a job application

What I dislike about the company

To offer more benefits which would make associates think about staying employed longer because without any security or my employer making me valuable then you will always keep your options open for something better

Environmental Friendliness

They use so much plastic and are incredibly non-environmentally friendly

Suggestions for improvement

  • There needs to be a higher stress on hiring quicker as well has more payroll given to stores each week.

What I like about the company

I’ve enjoyed working up in the company from a temporary employee to a full time Administrative Coordinator. The job pays decently for the work and skill level of the work.

What I dislike about the company

There needs to be better communication between managers/regional managers/assistant managers. My personal store lacked consistency and has been without a steady management team for over 6 months.
