Fun co-workers, terrible business
Receiver (Current Employee) – Beaverton, OR – July 10, 2018
I adore the people I work with in the store, and even the customers aren't bad compared to other retail experiences I have had, but the company doesn't care for it's employees. We are consistently expected to meet demands that we have not been allotted enough payroll for. Earlier this year they laid off many of our full-time employees so they wouldn't have to pay them benefits, which left us under-staffed and under-trained. I was expected to take on the responsibilities of my supervisor on top of my own, with no prior notice and no pay increase. Then an employee with the same position at another store got pregnant and asked for health insurance, but they didn't want to pay for that so they cut her hours AND mine (and every other receiver, I hear) and now I can't afford to pay my rent.
This was my dream job, I love books and I loved this job, but I can no longer work for a company that so blatantly disrespects their employees.
Discount on books, fun and friendly employees
Everything else, this company hates it's employees
