Not a bad retail job, just horrible management

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

Pros-Work with awesome people and make great friends
-Pretty decent pay
-Benefits even if you are part time

ConsManagement definitely plays favorites. Being an hourly co worker isn't so great after you have been there for a while. There is no hope in moving up in the company unless you suck up to the right people. If you suck up, you can get away with whatever you want and that isn't far to all the other hard working coworkers. Management also likes to make crazy rules that don't make any sense.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop playing favorites. There is a reason certain departments have high turn over rates. Step back and think about what you are doing to contribute to that turn over. Making crazy rules that don't make sense or upset your coworkers might just be what is making them want to quit.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
