Company values translate poorly to employee relations
Produce Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Minneapolis, MN – January 6, 2012
Department, Store and General Managers are all quite receptive and personable. However, there is a remarkably low level of personal or professional loyalty toward the company on behalf of employees. The values that are inculcated upon hiring are seldom practiced; there is a greater pressure to conform than to innovate. Company structure likewise inhibits new ideas and innovation from a bottom-up perspective, again for the sake of 'consistency' between franchises.
receptive, personable managers and co-workers
disconnect between franchise employees, corporate management
you have to work as fast as you can because of no manpower no time to do whats best for the customer
deli cook (Former Employee) – penfeild stpaul – October 23, 2014
lunds penfeild is not a place to work the store is not doing as much business as they planned and to make up for it they cut manpower and expect everyone to do the work of two or three people and they only hire part time with no chance of full time Im not scared to work hard but for only 27 hours a week or less forget it the store is also top heavy plenty of managers walking around doing nothing and not enough real workers to do the hard work
Professional (Current Employee) – Minneapolis – December 21, 2012
I enjoy working with this group of people, it is an environment that fosters professional growth as well as personal growth. Employees are not just numbers, they are a part of a diverse group of people committed to creating sensational experiences for others.
culture, values, ethics, development opportunities
