Short on staff, negligence
TEAM MEMBER (Current Employee) – Knoxville, TN – January 15, 2018
There are departments within Marketplace stores in particular that get the short end of the stick. They only matter when sales numbers are under scrutiny. These overlooked departments have minimal theft prevention, the employees get pulled away from the area and used elsewhere frequently - such as for front end, ClickList, or whatever area is behind at the time - rather than hours being given to the employees of those departments. Or more help hired. And the management team dares not do anything about that in fear of losing their bonuses if they stay under a certain number of hours.
You may end up overworked, or you may have a slow day. Depends on where they shove you.

Low pay, poor staffing, poor crowd handling, minimal recognition for a job well done, minimal opportunity for growth
