Tired of the meat grinder.

Sales Associate (Current Employee)
Waukesha, WI

ProsGood pay for a retail job. The job is to meet and talk to new people every day, so can be a lot of fun.

ConsSales management. They believe in the meat-grinder approach to staffing with motivation through write-ups. The bottom 20% of each department gets a warning or a write up every month (whether they've hit their minimums or not) as "performance management." Also, commission-only sales so you always feel the need to watch your back. If that weren't bad enough, the Steinhafels want their *salaried* managers to sell a third as much as salespeople, pitting the management against the sales force, so you again have to watch your back. Even the top salespeople don't feel appreciated by this company.

Advice to Senior ManagementThey wouldn't take any suggestions seriously anyway. ESPECIALLY not from a salesperson.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
