Not a place for professional/personal growth

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Portland, OR

ProsGenerous Company Discount
Good retail hours-most locations do not have holiday hours
Some nice staff at store level
Variety of operational tasks/selling on sales floor

ConsHQ may talk about puting their people first, but you won't see that in action. Stores have closed, associates have taken paycuts, no pay reviews, and now a bankruptcy process makes the HQ focus on "having fun" pretty empty. When HQ rolls into town stores do a dog and pony show and breathe a sigh of relief when they're gone. Storables has never been much of a growth organization. It's led by a small leadership group that has been very cautious and yet hasn't managed to figure out it's own business. Whether it's POS, ordering, or marketing Storables has been slow to embrace technology and strategically use data to positively impact its business. Their loyal customer base is aging along with the brand. Being so behind the retail times in capturing and retaining new business they'll be lucky to keep any of their stores open in this economy.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe more transparent and honest. Bring in some new talent at HQ to take company in fresh direction. Ask for feedback from all levels at the stores to find new ways to motive them; what HQ thinks is fun & motivating is not on par. Solicit ideas without dismissing them. Just because you may not like someone's views doesn't mean it lacks validity.

    Disorganized local company trying too hard to feel large and corporate.

    Organization Expert Amd Closet Designer (Former Employee) Portland, OR

    I worked at Storables full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros: Hours are reasonable, benefits were decent, and the employee discount… Cons: The management style is terribly outdated and conservative. The owner doesn't seem to understand the cultures of the cities he owns store in. Dress code… Advice to Senior Management: Abandon aggressive sales tactics and micromanagement. Work on hiring a skilled, knowledgable team and then retaining them. Your turnover rate and outdated notions of professionalism… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
