Love the company, individual stores are a crapshoot
[withheld] (Current Employee) – [withheld] – August 14, 2018
Let me start by saying that I absolutely love the company and the corporate culture; on the whole, this is an organization that gives back to the community, listens to it's employees, and is dedicated to being a responsible steward of the environment and taking care of it's employees.
That said, it's been my experience, as well as the experience of several that I've talked to within the company, that individual stores can suck. Sometimes it's a case of being put somewhere where there's a personality clash, but sometimes it's that leadership in some of these stores have given up; they don't care, they're burnt out, they're wasting time until they hit retirement, and they take it out on anyone who has any ambition or desire to enjoy the job. I went from genuinely loving my job and my customer base to being transferred to a new store and feeling like my best option would be to quit because of the amount of backstabbing.
Again, I stress: this is not the corporate culture on the whole. But it does seem to be a problem within individual stores.
Great corporate culture overall
Some stores don't adhere to Speedy Standards of Teamwork
