Shift Supervisor - Albany, OR - January 16, 2022
When I worked here everything started fine but as soon as there were more managers it’s like everything I did was wrong. There was poor management and some shift I had to work 15-16 hour shifts because of my boss picking favorites. In that time I only got 1 30 minute break if that.

Management was the reason we had customer complaints, the store needs to be remodeled and is the only one that hasn't. Very unprofessional and back-handed with customers and employees. You will not be appreciated there as a good employee at all.

Manager - Chardon, OH - September 2, 2021
I’m not sure if the company changed at all but when I worked there as a manager I was expected to drop all my personal life to be there. I once called off work as a regular crew member because my grandmother was dying of cancer (17 years old) and was made to cry bc they yelled at me for calling off. Another manager there threatened to assault one of the minor crew members we had (they were 15) and when I contacted the higher up management they did nothing. I left to work at a company that paid me an extra 2/hr as a regular associate.

Asst. Manager - Bossier City, LA - July 18, 2021
There were some very unruly employess there that refused to do their job. When i tried to correct tge problem through conversation or in extreme cases sending them home i was never backed up. When a black manager did the same thing rhey wete backed up. Gm and another asst continuously late. When i was late i was demoted and never was previously talked to. Completely unfair and racist. No white employee lasted because they were made fun of and ridiculed. The district manager is just as bad. Wouldn't listen to my concerns and said i was rascist. Sad situation.
