Good part time job, don't commit
Assistant Manager/Shift Supervisor/Partner (Former Employee) – NY – August 2, 2018
Stewart's Shops is a great job overrun and ruined by corruption and lack of genuine care for it's employees in a so called family friendly company. It uses higher than average pay, good benefits, and a nice retirement plan to justify a business model built on too few employees with ever increasing responsibilities as the company grows. They are open all days of the year and only give holiday pay four times a year. Their payroll system quickly fails with more than a few full time people per shop, instead trying to have 2-3 full time and 10-15 part time. Managers are overworked, underpaid and usually thrown into a store before they are fully trained due to constant shortages from a high turnover rate. Toxic subculture of short to no breaks and not changing your time if you get stuck late to finish a task or even just hand off to the next shift. With a severe change to it's staffing policies, payroll, and culture it would be an amazing job due to the fast pace and friendly, loyal customers.
Flexible hours, high hourly pay
No breaks, unrealistic expectations, subculture of donating time for the sake of the shop
