Going through a company wide re-structure that eliminates most leadership
Visual Merchandiser/Retail Designer (Current Employee) – West Chester, OH – June 3, 2017
I have had great luck at this company for the last 10 years, and last year they announced a giant re-structure. With this restructure most leadership positions were either eliminated or moved to a district office and require 75% travel, thus eliminating anyone with a family. Vacations are plentiful....as long as they agree with the "needs of the business." I get 6 weeks of vacation, but can only take time off during specific times of the year. I am given 5 sick days a year, and cannot use my PTO in place if my kid is sick. They claim work/life balance but at my store it is non-existent. The design team is completely used and abused and is made to re-stock the store and run cash registers when it gets busy, but never gets any help in return.
