Customer Service and Cashier

Customer Service, Cashier (Former Employee)
Miami, FL

ProsThere are some great ppl working here. Big company so a lot of employment diversity and opportunity. Convenient Locations as long as you are not transferred without notice (which happens very often every 9 months or less). Really good pay to sales associates and chance to make good money if you are good at it.

ConsThe company itself doesnt care about its employees, Ever since the company founder died. Now as a 3rd generation family owned business they have completely change the company reputation . They transfer you without regard to your personal interest to any store they want. A lot of employees had to commute over 60-120 miles a day (Kendall to Coconut Creek) for months waiting for the next transfer to hopefully be relocated to a nearer Store to their home. Specific managers that have been so long in the company and have lost all sense of ethics and respect and Corporate doesn't do anything even after various complaints from its employees).
Company has weird and strict policies in regards to holidays and whether you qualify to be paid for them or not (most than usually they try to not pay you). Customer Service staff is IMMENSELY overworked with only 1 representative for every shift per store and as much as the company tries to cut costs by sharing their work with the receptionist and cashiers they still get everyday more than what they could handle. As far as cashiers : The schedule is every week changing and everyday is most likely different. One day you Open with the store and the next you Close and open the next day so more than likely you will not be able to study while you work. Forget about your weekends because the company frowns about getting weekends off if you are in sales or a cashier. Vacations are a big NO during November- February. I must add that forget about commendations or recognition for there is very little or non-existent. They even took off the End of Year Bonus to all employees.

Advice to Senior ManagementI think most of the managers are really efficient at their jobs except a few. The biggest problem is the new owners running the company or new policies that damage morale and hurt employees personal lives with inconvenient situations.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
