    relatively low pay, corporal management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I did not feel that the corporal management really cared about the store employees but the store managers were very helpful and friendly.

    Pros

    The steady work, and full-time retail is hard to find anywhere else. What the company stands for (their explicit policies) and the customers who come to shop are admirable.

    Cons

    Favoritism to management. They sit in their offices and work their employees like slaves. Management does not allow trainees to rest in downtime, nor even sit when they fold and organize what's on the bottom shelves. Caesar Chavez banned the short hoe because it led to too many workplace injuries in harvesting crops. Thrift Town hasn't got the message, apparently. The back room workers also complain of being worked too hard. The object is apparently to get them to quit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make your workplace policies reflect the noble mission statement you say is company policies. You'll lose the best employees to stores that actually respect them in action, rather than merely in words.

    I worked at Thrift Town Thrift Store

    Pros

    The variety of duties within your assigned position. Constantly staying busy. Being able to float between Sales floor and Back room production duties. Being able to crosstrain allowed better knowledge of store operations and understanding of how each employee can best be utilized.

    Cons

    Pay. The pay is minimum wage to start then at the 1 yr. mark, if the employee hasnt given up and is still there , they get a pay raise. Small payraise. The pay is not based on performance or even other comparible jobs in the same market. Corporate policies and lack of importance towards employees. The attitude and treatment from the corporate level regarding employees is "They come and go". It seems to me that if a position of "Manager" or "Director" is a persons title they should have control in a termination decision due to being in direct contact with that employee and aware of their work ethics and dedication to the company instead of having to follow "corporate policy" and releasing a proven good employee.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider the employee, their work performance, dedication, and any feedback from customers as well as fellow employees or supervisors when making decisions regarding that individuals employment status. Allow decisions to be made at a local management level. It is more cost effective to work with a good existing employee than to train and allow for the learning time mistakes and possibly costing the company customers and/or money, which both are the main goal of the company.

    Pros

    40 hours weekly, health/dental/eye benefits after 6 months, bonuses for achieving goal for day

    Cons

    Rude/uncaring management didn't know management, understaffed/overworked don't get paid enough for how much they want you to work

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire enough people to properly run a store and give raises to people who deserve it.
