"Would not recommend working here. There is no flexibility allowed on productivity. The warehouse manager is very arrogant and treats everyone as if they have no brains including his lower management team. The only way to get promoted is to be a yes man. Turnover is high because of the deception when they hire you."

"Worst company ever. They overwork everyone from the store manager up. They set unrealistic goals and expectations, do not supply you with the tools to succeed, and then hammer you for not getting things done. They are more concerned about their investors than anything else. Their people are just cogs in a machine, use them until they wear out and then find another."

"Poor upper management. Long hours averaging 60 hours per week. Alternating 5 and 6 day work week. Short staffed. Unrealistic expectations. Compensation not more than minimum wage if you calculate the hours worked at $40K Salary. Not time for family."

"Not a great place to work, for me anyway. Manager and DM not easy to get along with and they set people up to fail. Customers were the only good part of the job."

"This company is stuck in 2003. Companies down the street are paying 30% more for the same job and companies in KC, STL and Arkansas are paying 50% for the same position, but the cost of living in minimally higher. Employee Retention, would be a fantastic definition to look up and implement because cutting raises in half, cutting 2 of the 4 healthcare options and completely changing the 401k all in the same year are not good ways to motivate employees."
