Worst company I have ever worked for!

General Manager (Former Employee) New York, NY

ProsFree Tea and thats about it.

ConsA company that has no regard for it's employees or communication. I worked for this company for almost 4 years. I managed almost every store in the company then moved my life for them to NY only to be lied to and given almost the same wage without a cost of living increase. In those 3+ years I saw over 60+ GM's quit or get fired. The bottom line is, they lie to motivate and do not follow through. I also had a raise given to me, only to have it then retracted because of a "miscommunication". The turnover is so high that they work everyone down to the bone. Sure, it sounds like a great concept and is, just don't mistake this for a place ANYONE would want to work.

Advice to Senior ManagementPeople are not disposable. I hope that someday you'll learn that the people who offer their blood, sweat and tears to make you successful are just as important as any other aspect of your business. Shame on you and the way you treat people. It will come back to bite you someday.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
