Positive Reviews from Employees

What makes you most happy at work?

Helping customers find the products they are looking for, working on team projects, accomplishing instock goals, accomplishing price audit goals.

What are some of the best things about your team?

A wide variety of members, who are willing to come together on teamwork projects or cover for their associates when needed.

We all bring something different to our team.

Constructive Feedback from Employees

What would you improve about your company's interview process?

They force a standardization to the process where interviewers are simply checking off a list of specific questions. Our newcomers at my recent store said the process was three questions and took only a few minutes. We need to allow interviewers the freedom to explore a candidates' qualifications.

What needs to change to make the company culture better?

This company has a structure where people seem to fear whoever is above them in the chain. Everybody is trying to simply please their supervisor rather than finding the best solution to a problem. This is where overreactions come in. Everything becomes urgent when someone's supervisor is upset.

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

There is too big a gap between what the people doing the work make and what the people who watch the work being done make. My benefits fall into the 'don't get sick' category. If you do you won't be able to afford treatment/doctor visits.
