What do you like best about the leadership team?

Leadership Reviews

Our new (10/19) CEO has the vision and leadership that we need to go to the next level.

Hard workers, fair minded and over worked.

The managing system that this company implements is amazing. I would be as bold to say that it is the best I have come across. The work environment reflects the management staff. At my interview I already felt apart of a team and that is rare these days. I am thrilled to be apart of this company!!!

Review from Product Dept

not very much at this point.

Review from Sales Dept

They are very good at improving results through communication and validation.

Review from Operations Dept

What does the leadership team need to get better at?

Leadership Reviews

They need to hire better leaders

Listening to feedback, treating the employees equally; (especially when it comes to race and personal relationships.

Communication and not holding personal feelings at work

Give reasonable wages and vacation hours

Review from Operations Dept

We had an unjustifiable termination of employment today when the employee in question had done no wrong. My unique location is the 8010 Bricktown in Chicago, Illinois. As well as unjustified accusations of stealing money from a client when a jacket was turned in by an employee.

Review from Operations Dept

What is the best part about your compensation package?

Compensation Reviews

Health insurance and our 401k

I can answer that once they kick in!!

Review from Product Dept

Bonus, Medical, Dental, Vision. All run well. Rarely have any issues at all with cigna.

Review from Operations Dept

401K match (although they negate it if you do not stay 5 years)

Review from Product Dept

Why do you feel undervalued and what would make you feel better about your compensation?

Compensation Reviews

Because the head production manager treats us poorly, talks down to us; and even laughs at an employee when they are crying.

if they would contribute to my 401k that would be nice?

lack of incentives on and positive in-work motivation. Negative reinforcement used as main motivating strategy. Needs to be more incentives for workers to perform.

Review from Sales Dept

4 years no raise yet!

To be compensated better. More sales bonuses or better sales bonuses.

What are some of the best things about your team?

Team Reviews

Hard workers even though overworked

employees are nice and get along, for the most part

No man left behind!! The team work is phenomenal at the store. I love how everybody helps everybody!!

Review from Product Dept

high level of team cohesion which has been recently diminished as a result of poor management.

Review from Sales Dept

We all work together for a common goal, we support each other endlessly, we power through everything even when we're exhausted and we do a damn good job

Review from Operations Dept

What do your coworkers need to improve and how could you work together better?

Team Reviews

Following the standards and being treated like an equal would be a swell start

Stronger attention to details. Listening to the team and reacting quickly to issues that arise.

Review from Operations Dept

What is most positive about the culture and environment at your company?

Environment Reviews

Team work is huge here

very lgbt friendly and racially inclusive

It's a family and if someone struggles we all are struggling! It's amazing

Review from Product Dept

You can call out whenever you want without any repercussions

Review from Product Dept

We all get along, we always have each others back. It would be nice if we felt the same way about corporate

Review from Operations Dept

What needs to change to make the company culture better?

Environment Reviews

Managers need to stop blaming the lower staff when customers get mad about store policies. It's not my fault that you changed your minds every other day on the senior discount and I had people screaming in my face from following orders.

Review from Sales Dept

What did you like most about the interview process?

Interviews Reviews

My GM treated me respectfully

he told me on the spot i got the job

It was different in terms of the way questions were asked but over all a lot of fun!! The managers eased the nervousness of interviewing almost immediately!

What makes you most happy at work?

Outlook Reviews

Beating yesterday's me is very important

i enjoy talking with my coworkers

It's an amazing feeling knowing your making a difference globally!

Review from Product Dept

genuine interactions with customers as opposed to scripted responses being rhymed off.

Review from Sales Dept

Fast paced so it's difficult to get bored

Review from Product Dept

What's going wrong and how can it be improved?

Outlook Reviews

No marketing or brand awareness

One front end supervisor is condescending. It can be improved by being recognized and addressed by the store manager.

Review from Sales Dept

Honestly, everyone at my store started quitting because of how badly we the workers were treated. I don't see it getting better unless management buckles down and listens to the workers, promotes from within, and works hard to show employees that they and their well-being are valued.

Review from Sales Dept

They need to change the culture of the company from protecting those who do not work to actually holding people accountable and actually valuing the criticism of tenured lower management who are struggling to do the work of ten people. But the company DOES NOT TOLERATE whistleblowing.

Review from Product Dept

We could be treated like people and not numbers. Consider demographics more, stop with the back checks, it doesn't make sense we're trusted to meet corporates unrealistic quotas but not trusted to not steal, its extremely bad for morale

Review from Operations Dept

What do you like best about your company?

Outlook Reviews

Knowing that my work is making an impact not only locally but globally! That's an awesome feeling

What would you most like to see improved at your company?

Outlook Reviews

All this recycling business. There needs to be recycling in the employee's break rooms and front of store. It drives me insane to hear about the amazing difference we are making and then turn around to see plastic bottles overfilling the garbages.
