Low morale and lack of professionalism
Co-Manager (Current Employee) – Garden City, NY – January 29, 2015
A typical day at work is to be on the sales floor, managing the staff and ensuring exceptional customer service experience. We are understaffed and the entire store, including management are disgruntled with their work life.
I learned that this company does not care about their staff, their well being or the morale of the store. Associates and management are treated poorly. There is no work/life balance because people are forced to work crazy hours with only one break and even that break is frowned upon.
The management at this company, to say the least, is poor. Associates are reprimanded when calling out due to a scheduling infraction made by the scheduling manager. The managers lack compassion and concern for the workplace and the associates health and welfare.
The hardest part of the job is dealing with a management team that is not a team. Everyone is out for themselves and no one wants to work together. It is difficult when you are trying to bring a change and create a team effort and no one is willing to work with you.
The most enjoyable part of my job is dealing with the customers and their happiness when they leave the store after purchasing a great outfit.
