I worked at Love's Country Stores

Pros

Love's pays pretty well compared to other companies in the OKC area. It's a privately held company which is both a good AND bad thing. There seems to be less corporate red tape, but if you are new, be wary of trying to get things done quickly to perform well at your job. Others take it as a threat and will collaborate behind your back to get you fired.

Cons

Love's could have been a decent company to work for, but if you are "the new guy (or gal)," don't expect to be able to get your job done. First impressions indicate that everyone is hard at work and things move fast. Unfortunately, there are certain groups of employees that like to waste time which can hold up the SDLC process. There is no reason it should take a week to have the server team make a new Active Directory group.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Let people know why business decisions are made. Don't make structure changes to an organization without involving those that will be affected.

    I have been working at Love's Country Stores

    Pros

    I gained a lot of knowledge on dealing with coworkers and the public. It was nice to see the friendly regulars.

    Cons

    The management was incompetent at best. The upper level management would do anything to make themselves look good. Including firing grunt cashiers because there is a product loss of thousands of dollars...care to prove it?? They are lucky I didn't go to the authorities. Also, inadequate training leads to unhappy customers and unhappy employees. And the benefits? Expect to be a lifer if you want any.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work out the management kinks and have better standards of who you hire. Also, the training program? It's not working...
