Been here for 4 years. Have applied for assistant 5 times, and each time the job was given to someone younger with less experience than me. They say they promote from within, but really they hand the better paying jobs to people with no experience but whom have a degree. The rest of us that take care of the floor get overlooked for years at a time.

Overworked. Expectations and job responsibilities increase each year without an adequate pay increase. Overlooked for career advancement multiple times when others with less years experience were getting promoted. Feel under-appreciated and replaceable by someone younger with less years experience in order for the company to save money and pay them less.

No matter how well you perform, maximum annual "merit" pay increase for same position starts at 3% and reduces annually. So it only covers inflation and you lose annually in increased insurance plan costs. They don't care if you quit or everybody quits.

They don’t pay enough for all the hard work we do. I love this company but the pay isn’t good and they don’t offer overtime

Management. They've been cutting back benefits for all employees crowing about cutting costs, but they've also been publicizing a multi-billion dollar acquirement of Valspar coatings. They also recently brought in an executive who thinks that it's appropriate to treat grown adult employees like children who've spilled juice on the carpet. He stayed at one of our nearby stores for over an hour yelling about a water bottle sitting on the sale's counter hidden from view.

I work very hard and I'm always there. You are looked over in times of promotions and after a while you will want more money for your hard work.
