Cashier in New Baltimore, MI
Other companies have been giving their employees hazard pay but this place is a joke. big deal they gave a bonus of $250 on the last check in April but ONLY if you worked at least 160 hours in the pay period and then $125 is supposed to go on our next check but ONLY if you work a certain number of hours again. for people who work but not that many hours they get NOTHING. working us like dogs, they don't care, they making money off our backs. they don't clean or sanitize anything in the store. bathroom is dirty, carts never cleaned, computers never cleaned and they let as many people in the store that wants. hundreds of people in and out all day long, no sanitizing, nothing like that. run far away. worst job i ever had. favoritism is normal for this company. managers getting big bonus. cashiers get nothing. they fired old manager when he tries to tell big bosses to treat us right. big joke.
Their concept is really good, but can’t get out of their own way. Management is constantly changing and what one praises you for, the next one berates you for. No clear direction. Trying to be Lowe’s/Tractor Supply, when they should just be the local hardware store everybody loves. Going the other way fast. Don’t waste your time.
Toxic Work Culture, No Career Here
10/10 would never recommend working here. The work-flow processes are inefficient and tedious, and the employees are often held responsible for problems caused by mismanagement. Pay ceiling is a joke. Upper and middle management have inadequate grasp of the big picture, and will stab you in the back. Vast inequities in how certain departments and individual employees are treated. Some nice service level employees here, and they deserve better. PTO is ok. CNRG is wearing pants too big for their bottom.
Sales Associate in Michigan
I learned a lot and enjoyed it for almost 8 years till CNRG took over. Never ending promises and it went down hill fast and lost so many good workers. Hired younger people who didn't know anything
