Terrible Managment Poisons What Could Be A Good Place To Work
Hardware Clerk (Current Employee) – Jerry's – March 8, 2015
Very antiquated environment to work in..."do as I say, not as I do" philosophy.
Management's leadership skills are sorely lacking. People in management positions must have attained the job by default or lack of candidates because they are not management material.
Communication from management to workers is non-existent. There is no "This is how we do things and why" explanation. Communication from the store manager is only through a word document posted by the time clock or left on the service counter...each usually accompanied by a threat of discipline or termination if not adhered to.
Wages are sub-par for the amount of work and the industry. There's been a wage increase freeze for the last three years!
Management takes underlings to task in front of co-workers.
Store manager wants employees to screen his phone calls and lie for him so that he doesn't have to talk to salespeople or others (another communication via a posted document).
Schedules are completed one day before the new work week, and then for only the upcoming week. So, employees have no ability to plan there lives outside of work just because the manager is lazy.
Absolutely no training of job duties. If it wasn't for co-workers and observation, new employees wouldn't have a clue on how to do the various duties they are expected to do.
High turnover rate of employees.
Working at Jerry's Hardware in this cancerous atmosphere gives employees no hope that things will improve in the future and I blame upper management for no oversight at the store level!
