When I first started I got put into a mess of a store. A new young GM was coming in, old GM out, and longest time running employee passed away. I got pushed to perform tasks and duties not covered by my job title. I was over worked and under paid without benefits. Working 40hours a week with only PT wage, no benefits and no protection. I was then promoted to FT but it’s been 6months and no sight of benefits. Got a $1 raise since then, but typically working long, dragging hours, without getting paid for overtime because of the cheapness of the company. They expect us to reach for the stars but they tie our hands behind our back. With a PT support staff now that has quit, and another FT salesperson quitting, they cut back the hours on everyone else which adds more pressure and stress on everyone.
They paint your future to be very dark, hence the high turnover. If they stop overworking and severely underpaying their employees, then they might have a reason to stay.
