Low barrier to entry- as long as you can pass a drug screen + background check.
Unlimited doughnuts and beverages while 'on the clock.'
The day-to-day work is mind numbingly easy (under ideal conditions).
Employee discounts on food and merchandise.
Decent health insurance.
It's a monotonous grind. Groundhog Day.
Lack of communication between management and employees.
Sloppy shift handoffs.
Supervisors cut too many corners, and their employees do the same.
Employees are generally unhappy, downtrodden, and complain to anyone who will listen, because management's hands are tied from being able to solve problems at their level. This leads to a "learned helplessness" where employees lose faith in their boss/job/company, which drives down morale and productivity.
Advice to Management
Ensure consistent communication between employees and management (doesn't have to resemble a formal meeting, just a quick huddle so that everyone is informed and held accountable for the work expected of them. Otherwise your people are in the dark don't feel the need to be proactive.)
Incentivize exceptional work, expertise, and loyalty. Reward employees who go the extra mile and more will go the extra mile.
Fix faulty equipment.
Emphasize greater accountability on equipment care/maintenance.
If budget allows, look into offering public wifi.
Don't allow your employees (especially retail) to spread negativity, it's contagious.
Mentor your young retail employees to better their people skills.
Recognize improvement; be consistent with discipline; when possible avoid reprimanding employees in front of others, otherwise do so respectfully; lead by example; listen to your people..basic stuff. Just going back to the basics will go a long way.
