Extremely abusive management. Foul mouthed, threatening, constantly demeaning treatment of associates.
I'm a former employee hired to do initial store set up in Clarksville, TN. I have been in retail and restaurant management for many years. This was the most abusive, condescending, threatening environment I've ever seen, with no respect to peoples' dignity. Humiliation used daily as a tool to keep people in line is not an acceptable business model by any standard. Twice daily, at team meetings, multiple threats of termination were used to motivate people? It's one thing to expect productivity from an employee as compared to slave driving while cursing at the top of their lungs, never fast enough, treated like idiots, expected to rat each other out to upper management. It's a backstabbing culture; boot camp mentality. Drill sergeants yelling across the store. Constant pressure to perform at super-human levels. Having hired 60+ people for store set up, they announced the first day that their plan was to only have half left when the store was set up and in full operation. This was used many times per day as a scare tactic of termination to produce better employees?
Cursed at directly YELLING!
Foul, sexual comments made daily!
Perverted sexual jokes
No collaboration between managers for consistent store organization.
Who wants to work at only $8 per hour to be treated like that? What is human dignity worth?
