Gossipy and rumour-driven clique of self important private club
Senior Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Lillooet, BC – 1 March 2019
My tenure at this discount store was thankfully brief. The management runs it like an insiders club. Whoever is not within earshot is who is being gossiped about. There is no team cohesion, but rather a nasty, dark and dishonest approach to being 'in the circle' or out. They would prefer mindless automatons to do their bidding rather than thinking and contributing employees who would not threaten their position atop the steaming pile of dung that is the culture there. They even go so far as to lie - baldfaced- to you about your performance, with plastic saccharine praise and then destroy your credibility wen it comes to performance reviews, so the whole time, you are being told how wonderful you are and perfect for the role, then they fail you on every front when it matters: the reports that go to head office. It's such a weird and manipulative environment that it actually began to make me physically ill to go to work. Kind of like curse or some hex is there. The pay is terrible -as low as they can legally make it, and with no chance for raises because they drive you away before you would be eligible. Just look at the stats. they have had about 20 people fill the same role in just over a few years. If you could work anywhere else, do it. It's not worth the cost on your soul or your self-worth to be treated so poorly. There is a group of former workers that have gotten together to share these stories, to be sure it wasnt just imagined and yes, there is evil at that location.
Cant think of a single thing.
almost everything, nothing good comes to mind.
