They had a rating system that I thought was very unfair. Your coworkers rate you on your performance and the shift managers listen to them. They only give you 60 days they told me 90 days but lied. The management was also horrible.

Get with the times. (I think Amazon is going to help a LOT with that) Promote people who have leadership ability, not because they took the necessary preq. courses (some people don't have leadership ability. Their strengths might be somewhere else) Hold people accountable, set clear expectations, and have leadership lead by example. Their standards should be above everyone elses, if they want the job done right.

Vacation is not paid, unless you have pto (paid time off) hours to cover it. You can go , but yes, as previously stated, " team leaders are allowed to deny vacation for any reason, therefore resulting in favored team members taking vacation and less favored forced to work continuously until burning out".
