No consistency in schedule. Often didn’t know the schedule, even as an assistant manager, until the week of. Would often have my schedule changed from 8 am open shifts to 4 am stocking shifts and not find out until middle of the afternoon before hand. No regard for work-life balance. Corporate has no communication with the goings on of the store. Expected to handle shoplifters and prevent theft without being allowed to do so and in a violent neighborhood. Horrible employee retention. Always short staffed. And company tech support is non responsive

Assistant Manager - May 29, 2021
All the company cares about is reward cards. Employees are just a number to them instead of an actual human being. Nothing you do is ever good enough from a higher up stand point. Unless numbers are being met. They are never met across the board. Severe lack of training or ongoing training in all departments. Most of the coworkers were great to work for. But at this point all the good workers have quit and moved on to better companies/jobs cause they got tired of the way the company was run and the district manager running it. Turn over rate there is very high.
