Turn and Run

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Ocean State Jobbers full-time

ProsNot many Pros working for this company other than paid health insurance if you are an exempt/salaried employee.

ConsToo many to name. A very "us vs. them" mentality portrayed from the corporate offices and company officials toward the workers in the stores.The work environment is very negative and that comes right from the owners and trickles down to the stores.The work schedule for management is supposed to be 50 hours a week, but you can be told you must work your day off without much notice. Most warehouses in a company support the stores,in this company the stores are at the mercy of the warehouse..constant deliveries of merchandise allocated by the buyers of the company jam the stores stockrooms and make working smartly and efficiently impossible.The owners and upper management constantly talk down to store management and employees.

Advice to Senior ManagementSpend more time in the stores and take a sensitivity course

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
