A very stressful place to work, micro managing
General Manager (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – August 15, 2018
No work life balance, required to work 50-55 hours a week but end up work a lot more than that, long hours. When managers were paid by salary, they want manager to work more than 55 hours a week. Since they converted to hourly rate, they controlled managers to work less than 55 hours a week but with high expectation of great operation and store condition and cleanliness, 55 hours are not enough. Very stressful place to work.
The way company promotes managers to the next level is not fair. It all depends on how you talk to upper management. You need to know how to talk than how you work. It’s all about I like you or I don’t like you. There were so many people not deserved the promotions.
The company culture is great concepts, however, upper management didn’t practice them and expect direct reports to follow. For example, they value respect win-win and acknowledging others, however, they pick and choose when and who to respect and acknowledge.
All company has policy, this company didn’t follow their policy. They will say that this is region/zone standards. Those standards are not align with policy.
Good benefit but you might not receive bonus you suppose to get because they issue new rules and take away your bonus.
Stressful, high expectations from upper management
