Great place to work, until they turn on you
Retail Store Manager (Former Employee) – California – June 13, 2019
I was an 8 year employee. Barely anything negative on my record. They pulled me into the back with loss prevention, accused me of theft, then sent me on leave. A week later, when they either couldn't prove it or realized their mistake, I was fired over the phone for a completely different reason that was NOT AGAINST POLICY. I have the documents to prove it. The at will nature of the employment meant I had no recourse.
8 years of hard work, down the drain for not breaking a single rule. I had been promoted twice, tossed from store to store as they needed without regard for myself or my family, and I did it all willingly only to be terminated for following policy to a T.
If you want a temporary job making good money, be a sales rep. Anything higher than that, get ready for politics, back stabbing, and a lack of any support. District managers pretend to do work, but all they do is "game plan" which in reality is having you do all the work, they write it down and give it to their bosses as their plan, then "hype you up" followed with accountability if you don't hit targets. Then get ready to have your career destroyed for unknown reasons because "office politics".
Good pay, good benefits
Politics, fake social justice culture
