    Current Employee - Manager in Saginaw, MI

    Pros

    Employee Discounts is about all!

    Cons

    The management is allowed to insult and belittle their employees and have no respect for what they do. For minimum wage, the insults and disrespect are not at all worth it. They accuse you for anything and everything and if the manager doesn't like you they just fire you before the probation period is over, just so they don't have to work with someone who can sell better than they do.
       They expect you to hit numbers that make no sense and sell products to customers that they don't need. They lie to your face and tell you how great of a job you do and then behind your back insult and look for ways to let you go. Is this really a company that values the customer? No, it is bent on sales that are not needed and products the customer shouldn't use. The RSD is clueless as are the SSM's in this company, they think they know everything and sadly their numbers are not to par. But they are busy doing other things so they don't have time. Except for the fact that their are higher up managers that can accomplish their numbers. I really do enjoy the job, but hate going into work there. For minimum wage, this job is not worth the headaches that come with it. Career advancement doesn't happen as they say and it is full of empty promises.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Readvise your goals, they make no sense and are not beneficial to the customer in the least. Exspecially the OMS goals, talking with a nutritionist will let you know that none of these chews actually benefit a person, so just another lie to the customer that they expect for continued employment.
