Negative Outlook

I worked at Grimco full-time (More than a year)

Pros

A consistent schedule.
No issues with HR.
HR is actually very efficient and reliable.
Entry level job for a few college kids with no where else to go.

Cons

Commission structure is a joke. If you want to make any money on it, you have to basically kill yourself to get it.
Base pay is not up to par with current times.
Company stuck in a 1985 mindset with no room for innovation. They were scared to get a Facebook page and Twitter page originally because they were afraid of all the negative feedback they would get from their customers.
Unwilling to change in the least bit.
Management is very two-faced - As in they literally believe that they can lie to you and you will accept it regardless of facts.
The corporate culture is the "good-ole boy" mindset. Only males at the top, and they hold on to their power with a strangle hold.
They value the person that will literally make Grimco their entire life.
They will sometimes expect you to work far beyond your salaried hours with no compensation in return. (As in until 2am in some extreme cases)

Advice to Management

Pay your workers! You are already having major staffing issues throughout the country, and more will be coming soon.

    High turnover, high pressure, low pay. Unrealistic expectations. The Grimco machine chews people up and spits them out. The only thing that matters is 'profits'.
