Hey all

For those associates, how did your store handle the "merit-based raises" opposed to the raise off of our earnings like they originally stated at the beginning of phase 3? The integrity of this company has completely gone down the ****ter. You say I'm getting one thing....then change your mind last minute? I am top in sales at my store, and got the maximum "merit-based raise". I made the company 688,245 in 2015, and only hit 3% commission in 2 of those 12 months. My merit-based raise was 52 cents. FIFTY-TWO CENTS. I am so sick of them going back on their word. I am about to open up he Union threat wound. Two other stores in my district have already taken these measures. Is it time? I love my store, but hate corporate. I'm a vet from the 2005-2009 era....rehired in June 2013.

Anyone struggling with these exact isues? Any advice and someone to vent to would be great.

Similar BS from a retail job I once had.  Once you figure out how to work within a given commission structure, they pull the rug out and re-build it.
