A fun workplace
Reset Team Member (Current Employee) –  Columbia, SCApril 5, 2019
A topical day of work , we go based off a plan-O-gram for the week. We take the plan-O-gram and figure out what we want to start first. Then clock into a commodity based off what you want to start with. Grab the strips and go to the aslie it's on and change out the strips, take out the closeout products, put the strips in, move the shelves (only if recommended). Then you rearrange the products based on what the strip says. The strips has the product number it must be matched with.
Pros
Good hours, long days
Cons
Short breaks

Nice place to work but no benefits
Marketing Rep (Current Employee) –  Athens, GAMarch 29, 2019
I have learned all the marketing techniques, hardest part is working in the cold-ice cream, etc. I enjoy my colleagues a lot.The overall workplace is great and I love people therefore I get to assist and speak/hold a conversation with them at time.

Easy going!
Marketing Representative (Current Employee) –  Newport, KYMarch 28, 2019
It's an easy-going job that doesn't require too much learning to understand. The work week is sporadic, but its easy to pick up hours at another location if you are needed. My boss is one of the best I've had in a long time, and the work atmosphere is pretty casual and nice to be in.
Pros
super flexible hours
Cons
sporadic work weeks

Not a fun place to work .
Team member (Current Employee) –  Dallas, TXMarch 23, 2019
They started out as a good work life balance ,but went to overnights .Their benefits are not that good .They do not train their associates ,and put a lot of pressure on associates to finish their sets .They have a staffing agency provide temporary help ,but if they do well they do not get hired .There is a contract that doesn't allow the company to retain good people .The leads have no people skills and constantly ride you to finish .The morale is terrible and a lot of associates quit due to the overnight shift .They also make you use your paid time off if you can't maintain you 37 and a half hours .The really only enjoyable part of the job is getting to know the associates .The hardest part is that the job is very physical .You have to lift shelves and move heavy product around .The managers have no people skills and are unorganized and don't communicate to each other very well .A typical day is us standing around until they give us a set to do and dodging customers to get done until the store closes .There is no integrity only a desire to finish as managers don't pitch in and their seems to be controversy always swirling around the company .I would not refer anyone to work here poorly ran company .
Pros
4 day work week
Cons
overnights, benefits not great, poorly ran company .

Unorganized mess most of the time.
Set Team Member (Former Employee) –  Louisville, KYMarch 17, 2019
There are a few leads that are organized and get the job done quickly. There are a few that don’t. You also have to wait in construction all the time, standing around for hours at a time. But once they’re done they expect you to finish that task at in extreme time. The managers in the office is what make me dislike this place. One of them just makes everyone want to quit. She on a power trip and there’s a lot of nepotism in this company.
Pros
Good Pay, Nice coworkers
Cons
Management, Unorganized

Reset Team Member (Former Employee) –  Memphis, TNMarch 12, 2019
Racism at its best. Whatever you tell the Managers they tell the office. Nothing stays personal and the Managers be Friend you to go back and tell your personal life. If they like you don’t have to work. Take as many smoke breaks as you like all while on the clock. They think it’s the best job in the world but wait until you get your check.
Pros
Hour lunch Break
Cons
Team Leads

Horrible Management and lack of opportunity to advance
Kompass Representative (Current Employee) –  Sugar Land, TXFebruary 24, 2019
If you enjoy working in an environment that wants you to make water to wine miracles without equivalent pay or assistance to produce these miracles then this is your place. Management enjoys riding your back while you attempt to complete tasks handed down to you that are also unreasonably scheduled. Training is a joke, procedures are not clearly defined, and tasks to be completed are slowed with to many procedural issues.
Pros
There are no pros
Cons
Antiquated time clock system, micro-managing, low pay for work expected

Reset Team Member (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXFebruary 24, 2019
the job is pretty easy stray forward, but shift hours are long and stressful, most of the time is boring and at a times drags in time. Managers are great for the most part and tasks are easy to achieve, unfortunately my biggets issue was the overnight shifts
Pros
easy job, great management
Cons
overnight long hours

Fun place to work
Kompass Representative (Former Employee) –  Harriman, TNFebruary 20, 2019
Friendly staff. Manager was very caring about if you needed to take off for sickness or sick kids. Not enough work to last a full week though. There was nothing really hard about the job at all.

Merchandising ASP (Current Employee) –  Newport, KYJanuary 11, 2019
They hire out of college a lot, but that seems to compromise getting promoted within.
The compensation is very undesirable and you get a few cents raise annually.
The management is good and flexible.
Pros
Good people, good out of college experience
Cons
Pay is terrible, hard to get promoted

It’s an okay job
Kompass Representative (Current Employee) –  TXJanuary 4, 2019
I mean the job is what it is. The work hours are flexible but the amount of hours you get a week is never consistent. One week maybe 20hr then the next 60hrs. You will do a lot of physical work and be up and down on your knees. You have to be willing to work long days if needed and work alone with little to no supervision. Overall the job has a decent pay and is great for people in school or that have kids. I’ve been with the company for 4 years and it’s just time to part ways.
