Unstable

Stock Associate (Current Employee) Westfield, NJ (US)

ProsCoworkers are nice
40% Discount/20%-electronics
Interesting tools/gadgets

ConsScheduling is ridiculous
  -Either too much or too little
  -"Because of Payroll" is heard way too often
  -Manipulative manager
Poor transit execution
Constant turnover of floor set
Poor communication between stores and coporate

Advice to Senior ManagementBe honest - do not tell a set of employees one thing just to have them support an area of the store that is lacking and then have other employees do the exact opposite
Less intense - work will get done no matter the manner it is spoken
Let stores' stock associates have some control over shipment - to minimize overstocking of certain products

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
