Past Greatness/Future Ruin
Store Manager (Current Employee) – Detroit, MI – October 18, 2016
This company used to be a source of greatness. The company began as a "mom & pop shop" styled business and grew into a multi-state organization. The organization was focused on the people, the neighborhoods, helping the community around each store. Sometime in 2015 the company moved toward a new "corporate" structure and veered away from the ideals that made it one of the greatest places to work. Gone was the at home feel of the stores and the welcoming attitude of the company. They pulled away from the communities which they serve and gain money from while becoming increasingly drone-like in culture. At one time, employees were encouraged to be creative, thriving, thinking members of a team. Now they are simply asked to do as they are told by people in an office who have NEVER worked a day in a retail store.
