Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
Disapproves of CEO

Pros

- Challenging but not overbearing workload
- Good environment to build relationships with coworkers and customers
- Hours are flexible, there is enough staff should a shift need to be covered as well
- Product is higher quality than competitors and easy to get behind
- Store managers are very supportive and positive
- Benefits are standard

Cons

- Penny-pinchers. Reducing costs seems more important than developing staff and growing business.
- Evident disconnect between corporate office and stores, signs of distrust of retail employees
- Supervisors only paid wage when supervising shift, not when another supervisor or manager is present (valuing people on tasks performed, not overall contribution)
- Communication is clear, but often times limited and/or lacks follow-up

Advice to Management

Solicit feedback from all team members about how to improve stores, improve operations, and save money... there are a lot of good ideas out there! Improve amount of communication, and follow up when unexpected changes occur.
