The home office is a dismal looking place and this should be a red flag. The owners put no investment in professional training, show no interest in getting to know their staff or managers and seem to repeat the same mistakes by not respecting their employees. Until one of them wakes up, turnover will continue to be high and staff will continue to leave for companies that show respect, compassion and trust their staff.
There is no training nor safety implemented.If you are driven and a hard worker you will be taken for granted and quickly burned out! Expect to crosstrain yourself in every dept!
Repetitive work environment. Home office cuts hours frequently, while increasing the workload. The culture used to be much more positive, terrible policy changes coming from home office. This company is experiencing some pretty brutal growing pains.
No benefits for 90 days. No holiday pay, no vacation or medical/dental benefits and 10 days PTO is the standard. High costs for medical and dental, particularly if you have more than 1 dependent.
Terrible environment. Cold and uncaring. The home office is unclean, dark (no windows unless your an executive, but otherwise you are in a warehouse) and it's either too cold in the winter and too hot in the summer to save money so you need to bring in your own space heater and fans. Before you get benefits you have to be with the company 90 days, so basically your treated like a contractor. No holiday pay, no vacation, no benefits. 5 holidays a year unless you work in the store then you get Easter off, but corporate expect to work Labor Day and if you are salary expect to punch a clock. If you are under 80 they cut into your PTO and if you go over they don't comp this time. So salary when your 80 hours and above, hourly when you are 80 hours and below. Unfair.
Gossip and unprofessional "team" members who focus more on fellow employees then actually doing there own jobs
Corporation has very high standards and performance expectation on employees with little to no support or training.
Shocking how little supposed managers know. Was just a cashier and had to teach THEM.
I really enjoyed working with the foundation staff that stayed on for longer terms. Our environment was laid back at times but load days or special project days were high energy and fun.

What is preached is most certainly NOT practiced! if you are not liked or accepted into their fraternity then you will NOT advance! you will work long hours, be led through fear and intimidation, and simply be a part of a failing company!

Multiple employees are shoehorned into offices, safety issues are not a priority.
