10-11 hours most days, some days (a few per month) would extend far beyond. The longest day I worked was 8:30 - 10:30 (at my desk). I was involved in several corporate reorgs, and I pulled more than a few 60-70 hour weeks, sometimes two weeks in succession. Not fun.

Store level pace is bipolar at best. Periods of mania followed by lulls. Or constant mania or constant lulls. It's ever-changing at site levels depending on location, offerings, etc.
Office level pace is slow and tedious. It can take weeks to have hiring completed resulting in lost employees, years ( or never) to get product added, months to years to get repairs (structural and digital) made, etc. An absolute snail's pace to spend a penny, but frantic to earn one.

Answered

Left after 20 years (3 under Global) because of: consistently working 50+ hours a week with no compensation, no help from TM, no appreciation from upper management, no personal time, cannot use PTO and don't get paid out for unused time or accumulate more unless used, inconsistent pay based on performance and labor intensity, etc.

Answered

Capricious way in which decisions are made and communicated by management

Answered

Evaluations are performed once a year, for everyone, at the same time regardless of hire date. They are paid out late (2+ months), always, and based on a grading scale that is assigned a point value. Hourly employees can have a max of 3% regardless of peak performance, and management is capped at 2%. If given a poor review, no raise will be given.

Answered

Promote a culture of respect and professionalism (and adult behavior)

Answered

No. Only hourly employees. Management and above are salaried.

Answered

Stressed out after seeing colleagues from my old company being let go on a weekly basis

Answered

For full time employees there is medical, dental, and vision, 401k for employees that have been employed for at least one year and are 21+, and paid time off (impossible to use). The medical coverage is fairly poor.
