Cost Plus World Market History

Cost Plus World Market was founded by William Amthor in 1958 on Fisherman’s Wharf in San Francisco, California. Amthor sold some extra rattan furniture that he had imported. The furniture sold so quickly that Amthor opened a warehouse and began importing shiploads of imported items, which he sold at cost plus 10%, thus the company name.

The company is a chain of retail stores which sell specialty and imported items such as housewares, furniture, coffee, and candles. Today, the company has 276 locations in 35 states.

Cost Plus World Market has more than 6,000 full time employees and boasts annual revenue in 2011 of $963.8 million. Cost Plus World Market went public in 2006 on the NASDAQ for a few years until Bed, Bath & Beyond purchased the company in 2012 and it now operates as a subsidiary.

I currently loved my job at cost plus in denver, We recently just had a manager change and she is not easy to work with. I get a long with everyone but this is not good, She yells and screams at me in front of customers and associates, With cuss words. We are short staffed and she scheduled me 10 days straight! I asked just for 1 day off, since she does the hiring this should not be hard to fix. But she screamed F it and said she would give me her day off. I get the needs of customers and staff is important but this is not how you handle a situation. She transferred from ulta and I guess this ok there? I would love to speak to a HR before I put in my 2 weeks. I was the one managing the store between transitions now she figures that I will do whatever since I loved my job. This is not right.

I just resigned at world market (on 11/26/17 @ 7am this is also the day and time the incident occured) due to a incident with the manager. I would like to speak with someone in HR about this matter. I was hired on as daylight but then decided to switch to night turn. Every business pays more when employees work nightturn. When I inquired about getting the pay increase, I was put off for about a week, then when I re-asked about it I was told that it was a pointless call for my manager to make that he knew the answer was no. And that even if it was a yes that it would only be like 10 cents more a hr and at the end of the pay period it would only be a extra 7 to 10 dollars on my pay and that if it was that big of deal that he would just pay me out of his pocket. I find this to be very unprofessional and unethical that the store manager wants to do and say those things to employees.
