As an overnight specialist at BJ’s Columbia MD, my role was to manage a team of merchandisers. However, due to the store managers decision of not fully staffing the the overnight crew because it had a negative effect on his annual bonus, my role evolved into, in addition to managing a team, a merchandiser, a truck unloaded and a driver( one who is responsible for bringing products from receiving to the team). Oh by the way some nights the merchandise only consisted of 4 people on the floor and a freezer and diary associate. Under staffing required the overnight specialist to spend most of the night merchandising versus managing the team and the store manager wants to know why the team can’t leave on time to protect his BONUS! Expectations are unrealistic from the the store manager. He and the senior merchandiser manager has little management skills and they both lack integrity. Poor place to work. Don’t even think about wasting your time at the Columbia MD BJ’s. You can easily find better opportunities elsewhere.
Poor Senior Management, lack of staffing, overworked underpaid
