    I worked at Glik Company part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good discount on most merchandise both in-store and online. Freedom to merchandise. Decent hours.

    Cons

    Some of the lowest wages in the business. Raises are tiny and rare (I received a 40 cent raise after 1 year). The buyers shop for every store and don't specialize between rural and more metropolitan stores. Requests to buyers (for items that customers are asking for) are often ignored in favor of older trends or trends the company thinks will sell. Items that need to be replaced or repaired are rarely taken care of. Associates, assistants, and managers are treated like garbage compared to those who work at home office. The managers and higher-ups at home office are out of touch with retail trends and management styles. They are very stuck in their ways and I see little room for development or growth.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. They work the sales floor and know what customers want, what works, and what doesn't.

    I worked at Glik Company part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The discount on everything in the store is great and the Glik family is very involved, making every store feel important.

    Cons

    This is one of those stores where you'll have to be OK with approaching people and really pushing items. You have daily and weekly sales goals that you need to meet.

    I have been working at Glik Company (More than a year)

    Pros

    This company is amazing. They love their employees and are dedicated to teaching them how to grow in the company.

    Cons

    There are only 65 stores nation-wide and a few of the stores have poor management.

    Advice to Management

    Take reviews from other workers to determine if someone is actually ready or prepared to move up into a management position.

    I have been working at Glik Company full-time

    Pros

    Great company with fantastic regional and area supervision for Missouri. Great discount on big brands. Not your typical cookie cutter store set up. You are able to feel out your customers needs and set store accordingly. Low turnover.

    Cons

    Large work load for bigger volume stores. Low hours matrix to work with each week. It is easy to get behind because you don't have the hours to support the staff you need. Usually run with two people all day. During holiday three on most days. Adding another person would help keep up on tasks and add another body on the floor to boost sales to customers that otherwise might have slipped through because staff is too busy for number of customers in the store. Also, not much room for growth past store management.

    Advice to Management

    Give a little room to add in hours each week. Even just one more day person added to schedule would make a world of difference in efficiency.
