Management is poor as they all think their Gods gift to retail, no room for movement as people cling to their position

Former Employee - Merchandise Coordinator in Morton Grove, IL

I worked at Home Goods full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Job is fairly easy once you get it, hours are decent, and benefits for full-timers are good. Also, not having to work Easter, or Christmas was nice as the store was closed.

Cons

Getting promoted is a lengthy process, the full time staff in most locations hold on to their position for dear life. Management does not do a good job of following up with people who don't do their job well or don't follow rules but will punish those who constantly do well in an effort to "make an example". Also the fact that full time employees are required to have open availability is ridiculous mostly because you're only giving a minimum of 30 hours and it barely goes up from there. If they need to be flexible the company should at least give 40 hours clean.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management should really consider promoting store management from within instead of hiring from other companies. Theres too many different styles of management all over the stores it makes it very confusing for associates to work and creates huge communication issues.

    I have been working at Home Goods part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The hours are extremely flexible, and they give you any days you request off. As a guy you get experience as a cashier, sales associate, hanging rugs, doing carryouts, processing merchandise, unloading the truck, your everywhere! So it looks good on resumés.

    Cons

    Management does not train their employees, and multiple managers and coordinators boss you around to do things for them all at once and if you hesitate or do something wrong they go insane! The pay is only 8.00 and the raises for every year are only 15 cents. Coordinators only make 9-11 dollars . Everyones always in a bad mood. The girls get treated like royalty doing nothing and the guys have to carry out heavy merchandise, get carts, take down rugs, and work the trucks, and the girls don't do any of that!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train your employees and give more payroll to employees , they deserve it! We work really hard an the billions that TJX acquires , its sad they give the very least and expect the very most. Also!! The people who announce visits to check up on the store, should check randomly to actually see how the store is ran so the managers can actually get in trouble for what they really do to their store!

    I have been working at Home Goods part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    People I worked with are nice.

    Cons

    pay Is horrible, no hours, promised as a part-timer 20 hours a week don't even get that, managers play favorites give the people they like hours but, the ones who bust their butts get nothing. No advancement and they work you like slaves for little money. I have over 20 years in Retail and I never seen a company run as bad as this one.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be skinflints with pay or hours this is no way to run a company, the store I work at does good
    business so, give your employees hours so, the work that has to be done gets done. You can't expect to complete trucks with over 400 boxes in 3 hours it's impossible.
