    An archaic company, with a few (and far between) perks

    (Current Employee)
    Fort Wayne, IN

    Pros-Great work environment
    -Very friendly people
    -At times, very laid back (work at your own speed)
    -Minor perks like tickets, free shirts, gear, trips. These are very few, and usually horded by 'senior employees'.

    Cons-Completely behind the curve with technology.
    -All computer systems they use should have been buried in the late '70's.
    -Management is incredibly disorganized.
    -Decisions rarely ever take place in a timely manner.
    -Its almost impossible to take vacation, because no one is cross-trained and employees are worked to the max. (Yet they will still threaten you to "use PTO or loose it").
    -Senior employees do not "share their secrets". They assume if they are the only ones who know something it is more job security.
    -Very few managers (even senior managers) have graduated college.
    -Employee reviews and raises are inconsistent and lack subsistence.
    -The employee moral is very low. The culture is good.

    The worst "con" is the lack of pay and benefits. The healthcare is terrible, 401K matching is non-existent, limited amounts of PTO. Your salary is the bottom of the barrel. In fact, lift up the bottom of the barrel, dig a hole, and that is where your salary is! Bonus's are 'on the books' most never see one, they are inconsistently handed out and no one ever knows what goes into the calculation, or how to improve theirs!

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet more in touch with your employees. Learn what they do. Give positive feedback, and constructive criticism on a regular basis. Learn what at least a "living-wage" is! Start matching at least 4% or more in 401K contributions. Tell everyone when bonus's will be issued, what they need to do to get one, and how to improve it! Most importantly, be good managers! Analyze your the data and make good educated decisions!

    Ok place to work if you prefer to be treated like crap.

    Clerk (Current Employee)
    South Bend, IN

    Prosa discount if you buy alcohol

    Consstore management is constantly rotated to avoid paying bonuses. Clerks have no hope of benefits and are treated like crap. Dealing with drunk customers. And now an indiana law to card everyone no matter the age. (not employers fault)

    Advice to Senior Managementstop moving store managers around and reward the employees as well as the managers. Managers if they get bonuses don't even bother to thank their employees. Maybe consider not making managers work 6 days and they might be a little nicer to their employees.
