Better than average wages and benefits.

The management team is sorely in need of people skills training. How the store manager got his position is a mystery.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The management needs diversity and people skills training.

    Pros

    The only pro I can think of is experiencing such a bad place, I can now appreciate companies with great cultures that much more.

    Cons

    It's basically a my way or the highway organization. Very micro managed. There is no exposure or opportunity for anyone under the manager level. People are constantly leaving due to the lack of quality leaders in the organization. I've seen more than one Manager leave after just a few weeks on the job. When you consistently see this, you have to ask yourself is this a place I really want to work?

    Also, HR (I was not part of HR) has absolutely no say in the organization. If you have an issue or problem (and I saw several during my time there), the person at the higher level will always win because they take care of their own.

    I've thought about taking this company off my resume because it has such a bad reputation in the area. I have found it a lot harder finding another job because people are scared you will bring in all the bad things they have heard go on here.

    Benefits are also really expensive. They're more than double what I have paid anywhere else.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    At some point you have to look at yourselves as the problem, not the employees who continually leave. You have plenty of "managers", but no real "leaders".
