Was a great place to work until they went Public.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Fort Worth, TX – June 20, 2017
Tremendous learning opportunities, flexible work schedules, awesome team to work with. Once they went Public it was a downward spiral. People began to leave and not get replaced. Schedules became tighter, less flexible, advancement/promotions stopped. Situation became even worse when executive management changed hands. Company was on a pay freeze last 2 years to save money to build new stores. Focus used to be on the employee - happy employees make for happy customers. Focus has become the share holders and the bottom line. So many gimmicks (e.g., POP! program) have been introduced to get customers in the stores to make more money. Change can be a good thing, if done properly.
