Worst U.S. Retail Industry Companies to Work For – Annual Employee Rankings
Employee Surveys by Glassdoor.com Name Worst Retail Employers Each Year
By Barbara Farfan different organizations release “best” lists that rate U.S. retail industry companies in a variety of ways for their performance. Few organizations are brave enough to release corresponding “worst” lists.
Glassdoor.com is one organization that publishes a “Worst Companies to Work For” list each year, based on employee surveys that evaluate eight workplace factors:
- Senior Leadership
- Employee Morale
- Career Opportunities
- Work/Life Balance
- Compensation and Benefits
- Recognition and Feedback
- Fairness and Respect
What follows is a list of retail companies that were ranked as the worst retail employers since 2008, when the survey results were first published. The number in the left column indicates the “worst” ranking that each retail company was assigned according to survey results, compared to all U.S. companies in all industries. In 2008 there were 50 “worst” companies ranked, and in 2009 there were 25. The lower the ranking, the worse the company’s employee survey ratings.
Glassdoor stopped publishing it’s “worst employers” list after 2009, but using the data available on the Glassdoor website, 24/7 Wall St. has created the 2012 Worst Employers list. Out of eleven worst employers on the 2012 list, six of them are retail companies, which does not speak well for these retail chains in particular or the retail industry in general.
