Culture is not consistent, I can see where the company wants to go and become better but it has a way to go.
Shoplifting is frustrating and there is not much you can do to stop it. The paperwork involved documenting it is just as frustrating as you are not enabled to prevent it and takes up a lot of unnecessary time.
The only thing consistent about this waste of open market space is the amount of misleading they do with their employees. I've heard so many contradictory statements come out of the mouths of my superiors, it's enough to make one consider organizing a lock-out or strike. I've spent my time with this company on a skeleton crew, underpaid, over-worked and unappreciated. The store I happen to work at has been without a proper manager for 2 months and counting. No internal posting was made on the Alcanna's internal hiring website(known as "the Barrel") for the staff already loyal to this company, however a posting was made on Indeed which was removed before any announcement had been made regarding whether a candidate had been selected for the position in question. Despite reaching out to the company's HR/Payroll department, attempts at communication have been met thus far with radio silence. This company shows through its actions that it sees it's sales associates at interchangeable grunts, rather than as a long-term investment.
I would strongly recommend you don't consider applying to work for this company or its affiliates any longer than it takes to digest one of their pitiful offer letters.
It used to be a great company to work for, not anymore. Senior executives can’t align with company strategy, thus directions do shift dramatically and way too often. There’s zero appreciation for loyalty and almost no professional development or career advancement for employees regardless of their position and seniority. It’s all about pleasing shareholders to ensure shares don’t fall to the bottom.
