Great Company but No Consistency

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Company is great and team members in store are hard working Pay is good however.... Not enough consistency with visual merchandising in store- Excessive promo change overs for staff to be using productivity for sales, the dedicated customers and what is being asked of them. Customers complain about too much change around of store layouts-Should be once a month change or once a season, you will find competitors using these techniques to keep it simple for their customers, so why aren't we? Lack of available store hours and budget to have the necessary support in-store during VM promo change overs. Excessive micro-management from Regionals. Let's Change this or

Pros

Great In store team members, average wages

Cons

Excessive VM Promo Changes, Regionals Micro Management

Managers are overworked

regional managers make your job worse then it should be, They only care when your sales are behind or anything that effects them. the state manager speaks to everyone horribly, the upper managers don’t offer any real support. you are expected to constantly keep up with the promo changes, INSANE stock levels, constant tasks with minimal hours and if you fall behind on KPIs because of it you are scolded. If you call your regional/cluster they always make you feel like your problems are small and they always make you feel like they are too busy for you. When they do visits you are micromanaged and watched so hard you can barely breathe. It’s honestly horrible. If you want to be a manager here, expect your entire home life to be ruined because it’s so busy/stressful your life becomes Jay Jays. You will go home and just be stressing about your next promo change or running your store.

Pros

50% off, great team directly in store

Cons

no balance of work/home life, horrible upper management, constant stress, continuous promo changes, ridiculous stock levels with little support
