Mindless Coporation with no care for employees
Tech Supervisor (Current Employee) – Lancaster, PA – December 17, 2015
I've been with the company going on 3 years - and in that time frame, I've learned every department. I was given a promotion twice, however both times I was forced to step down from my position since the company does not allowed full timers to limit their available times, AT ALL. I have a small child that is in daycare, and when I voiced that a change in my SO's work schedule would mean that I would no longer be able to work past 4 pm, I was told that I had the choice to step down to a part time position, or be fired completely.
The corporate brains behind the mechanics of the company do not know how a normal day in a retail store works, and so they keep sending out rules that make a well run store almost impossible. During this christmas shopping season, we were not allotted any extra hours for the store's scheduling - in other words, corporate said we could only have one cashier, tech, and floor associate per shift. If you've ever worked or shopped at christmas time, you know that more than one cashier on shift is pretty essential to keeping up with the huge lines of customers during this time of year.
Also in my 3 years with the company, I have seen a multitude of store managers come and go in our local stores. Many of which were obviously terminated for no reason other than their pay rates became too high for corporate to want to pay. Only one manager I've seen fired was terminated for well deserved and truthful reasons.
Overall this company is not worth your time. They don't care about employees, they don't care about customers, all they want is money.
Yearly performance based raises, decent employee discount
Bad health benefits, poor management, no ability to work with associate availability
