    Corporate Employee - Worst job corporate job ever!!!

    Associate (Current Employee) Warrendale, PA

    ProsUmm... free parking? Although even that is confusing because the parking lot is a mess. There isn't a ton to be thrilled about working for this place. They talk a great game when recruiting but it's all pretty much a load.

    ConsExecutives and managers on such a power trip. I've seen them outright yell at people in hallways or in the middle of meetings. Amazing that the place has grown so much and can keep anyone from leaving the company. If you do leave, they spend 6 months talking about how bad you were and weren't the right fit, never actually hearing that they or their management styles are horrible.

    Advice to Senior Management1. Stop micromanaging every single microscopic detail, let the people you hire to do the job do the job, rather than just be targets for abuse.
    2. Stop forcing company beliefs or culture down the throat of new employees.
    3. Get modern tools for the job.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Fast Growing Company, Strong Growth Opportunities

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Warrendale, PA

    ProsGrowing Company
    Small Company with Close-knit employees
    Headquarters is located outside of a major city, so work commute is easy

    ConsLow pay ranges because it is a discount retailer
    Outdated Information systems make daily work complicated and frustrating
    Redundant work

    Advice to Senior ManagementMy advice to management would be to improve the information systems and not just purchase outdated software because it is cheap and saves money because it wastes time, thus costing more overall.
