Company reviews
"If you're just starting in retail management.."
Former EmployeeStore Manager
Maybe. If you're anyone who has any experience, move on to the next job. You can't be promoted higher then store manager unless you're a pharmacist. Payroll hours were terrible- you didn't even get enough to really run your store. You'll be working alot by yourself unless you have a very high volume store.

"The company is very disconnected "
Current EmployeeCustomer Service Representative
The job itself can be rewarding knowing you are helping people, training is not adequate to do the job correctly, very little support on how to fix a difficult issue on an account, constantly have to fix mistakes made by other reps which affect your call handle time, every department is very disconnected from each other. Company changes and policy updates are disregarded by some reps, rude coworkers, a lot of people avoid responsibility with no repercussion. Management is confused from one department to another and HR never knows what’s going on. That being said once you get on the right track and know what you’re doing the job is easy enough, working from home is great, pay is okay, just remember being compassionate goes a long way. Good managers will try to help you succeed and a lot of room for advancement.

"Do not get personal with your manager "
Former EmployeeSecurity Analyst
This is about the dept I worked in not the whole company but they seem to lack culture and diversity overall. Some folks are older whom have no kids and they seem to hire folks within the Dept I was in whom are mostly single and no children. I've experienced folks who are transphobic and also lack empathy for people of color. They use personal information against you such as when you have a death in the family and will write you up any chance they get, I highly advise to keep it business with these folks as they don't care about you and only act like they do.

"It was fine "
Former EmployeeShift Manager
It was retail. I liked the people a lot, including management, but the schedule varied a lot, the customers could be annoying and the pay was meh. Shift leaders were also expected to pick up a lot of shifts. The overtime was nice but it could come at an hours noticed if someone called out.
