Based on comments I’ve seen here and elsewhere, Corporate needs to find out what the store in Pensacola, Florida is doing right and do likewise. It’s my go-to choice for home goods. The employees all know what’s in stock and where to find it. It’s obvious they are empowered to treat customers well, even if shaves a penny off store revenue here and there. Recently I mentioned to an employee that an item the online site showed was available wasn’t on the shelf. He ordered it for me, to be delivered to our house free of shipping, and even applied a discount without taking the coupon I had in hand so that I could use it on something else. This is the kind of service that keeps that particular store always busy, no matter what day or season you visit.

I am a 10 year employee at this company. After much thought and speaking to fellow employees at the Corporate office Union NJ, I have determined that job satisfaction, employee morale and proper management are at an all time low.

I researched employee reviews online as well and those did not save this company’s image. Employees are being treated like they are just a number. The directors and managers show no concern for employee well being. Basic things are not being done. Employees do NOT have clear job descriptions. They do not know what is clearly expected of them, what their objectives are, or where they fit in the organization. Surveys are not done to assess job satisfaction so employees go through work day to day with no way of properly expressing their dissatisfaction. Most employees stay because they have no choice. Those who do have a choice quickly move on. The company will not be able to retain the best workers like this…. But do they care? No!

The training of new employees is extremely poor. This cannot be considered “on the job” training. It’s more like “I’ll kick you outta the nest and see if you fly” training. New employees are not properly introduced to the system or procedures and are not given clear job duties. This is highly inefficient and counter productive. Proper training results in confidence, reduction of errors and high productivity. The new employees are constantly unsure of themselves because they are not being properly trained! I don’t know when was the last time someone in our office got complimented for a job well done. We are only spoken to by management when something goes wrong. New policies are constantly being implemented without asking us how we feel about the job and the company. The directors actually monitor our work on a daily basis. What the hell are you monitoring when your expectations and our job duties are not properly conveyed to us?

These things outlined are basic management principles yet they are ignored. The company lacks leadership! This goes to show… Some people may be competent in their field but are not skilled at managing and leading people. I would not recommend working here unless you really needed money. Even then, the stress is not worth it.
