    Pros

    Great people, stable company backed by Kroger, corporate office in Portland which is a great city, defined career track, in the buying office you have the ability to buy samples for very cheap

    Cons

    Uncompetitive compensation package and low pay, extremely strict policies with slight mishaps resulting in firings (saw this happen with a few people), technologically behind.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your people better

    Pros

    Simple Job; you're not bringing it home with you
    Fun atmosphere with typically fun people
    Good pay for the type of work it is; good benefits

    Cons

    Management is very disconnected from employees.
    Good workers and bad workers are treated the same which leaves little reason to strive to be better.
    A lot of jargon and little follow through.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees more because they are the backbone of your business.
