Pros: Gratis benefit package
Cons: Hours lack of payroll, expectations in tasks, too much time cashiering and not managing.. Lack of support from corporate.
You open and close the store, unload and process over 8000 pc. Trucks. Cashier for 4-5 hours at a stretch. The store operates with so little payroll hours that it leaves you with 2 people working in the store cashieing and selling. Thus no customer selling can happen because you cannot focus on them at the floor. 300 people a day come through and it is impossible to reach them all and have them be greeted engaged let alone thanked. Thus the adt and $ per transaction expectations are so very difficult. Then the customer surveys you cannot possibly please them because you cannot talk to them. Then there are the trucks with heavy piece counts can you imagine 8000 bottles of shampoo to put away but first you must separate by brand. Then how about the tasks. Rework the entire makeup department in off hours but if you use all your people during that time what happens to running the store during the day? What sbout the planograms and how do they get done. Before you open. Biggest complaint lack of work life balance because the hours are so limited the gm ends working long days just to meet the work load. NO ONE CARES! Company just keeps expecting and the support in the field by dM is ridiculous as well. Company has Potential but the limited payroll makes the GM s want to run for their lives. Terrible place to be. You are not a Gm you are a worker...if you want to work very hard, not be able to train and develop, never get a break, can not have conversations with your customers, then this is the place for you. No advancement opportunities the pretend. It is a ridiculous place and retailer to work for! When the begin to care about their people then they will have something. Right now NO,! They are missing the purpose of retail - How to get $ into the cash register. They don't care.
