"Successful company, proven methods, with room to improve."

Current Employee - Merchandise Manager
Current Employee - Merchandise Manager
Approves of CEO

Pros

There is a high level of job security, provided you follow the programs and policies and do not promote yourself loudly.

Cons

The operations area generates the revenue but the respect for the line management is not where it should be. The senior management does not always provide the tools for growth and the guidelines that are set are not always based in real store working dynamics.

Advice to Management

There seems to be little upward advancement for field personnel. There is some excellent talent that is not utilized and some politically connected middle management and regional personel that seem to be out of touch with their line subordinates. To much CYA for visits and wasteful spending in some areas while other are not addressed.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Friendly co-workers, interesting tasks, company positioned to do well in good or bad times given the segment it is in

    Cons

    High levels of parinoia in the security area. Uses a "belt and suspenders" approach to access the facilities when the thing they should be concentrating on is protecting the companies finacial and customer data, thats not to say they aren't but when seeing how much they are wasting on the physical access security it does cause one to wonder what they are thinking.

    Advice to Management

    Start looking at the operational impact of the changes that are being done by the security team in the name of upper management. A large number of which have precious little do do with protecting the corporate data and even less with protecting customer data and their cumulative effect is to cut into the productivity of the people that make this company run.


  2. "I feel like a number not a person."

    Current Employee - Store Associate
    Current Employee - Store Associate

    Pros

    Diverse,fast paced, upbeat environment. There are lots of great organizational systems in place and the store is humming with activity. Flexible hours.

    Cons

    On the outside it looks like a great team environment and is promoted as such, but within the reality is that management doesn't appreciate or get to know their associates. The staff is stretched so thin that it may be impossible to have a human co-worker experience. You are so busy that having a meaningful customer service experience is impossible yet constantly encouraged. If you can't multi-task ten things at once this job is not for you.

    Advice to Management

    Borrow some old school ways of relating to people and open your minds to alternative ways of managing associates and dealing with customers. Not everything fits into the "corporate guidebook" way of life. Take a moment to recognize people's contributions in person rather than using a sticky note on a board!
