    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Merle Boes (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Prior to 2015, some of the upper management actually cared for the store employees.

    Cons

    trouble communicating with upper management, allowed known drug users to remain employed while they lost amazing store managers and hourly employees. Made up complaints to get
    rid of good people because they weren't brown nosers! Little to no support from upper management to store management. Horrible pay for the amount of work required. Horrible raises given. Old equipment made it difficult to keep the customers happy and their rewards program is a joke!

    Advice to Management

    go back to the basics and recognize the good employees you have! If there are any
    left, that is....


  3. "Concentration Camp"

    I worked at Merle Boes full-time

    Pros

    None, well one, my paycheck never bounced.

    Cons

    This place is a concentration camp. Management doesn't care for anyone except themselves. Quality employees have been leaving over the last few years and the owner doesn't care at all. The people that care the most about doing a good job get crapped on the most.

    Advice to Management

    Sell your company, and as the terms rid the current management.

    I worked at Merle Boes full-time

    Pros

    Flexible, depending on your position.
    If you enjoy eating a steady diet of things that create migranes, chest pain, and sleepless nights, this is the place for you!

    Cons

    Everything! No leadership, direction, support or follow through all while not caring about what they say is their biggest asset - their employees, which they don't appreciate or value anyone below management level.
