    Pros

    They only really hire friendly people, so if you're not into that, find another job. The customer base in Issaquah is demanding. You really must have a resilient attitude and remain positive to combat being unhappy here. Management is good or bad based on the department, if you're looking to become a cashier, you're in the clear!

    Cons

    There are a lot of choosy and snappy people. You cannot be someone who complains about their job a lot. Everyone complains about the customers, but people are people, and working in service is hard.

    Advice to Management

    Upper store management should allow more hours to be located throughout the store. This, understandably, isn't controlled solely by the store director - yet it is an issue that becomes cyclic and should be discussed with corporate.

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities, open minded people move up if they work hard and show interest in management responsibilities, school and management prep programs available to all employees.

    Cons

    It's retail so your schedule is all holidays, all hours store is open you can be scheduled. Black out dates are rough. Good management as long as you keep lines of communication open they work with you for family functions but cannot always get what you want.

    Advice to Management

    We need to change our surveys for patron customers. They just don't want to do the same survey over and over again. I know we need this for feedback, but we need a different idea:)

    Pros

    Everyone in the company seems happy. The managers and store director are great. It is busy and your day goes quick.

    Cons

    Customers are demanding. People make a mess in the public restroom. Corporate comes in a few times a year and we put on a dog and pony show.

    Advice to Management

    Keep taking care of your employees. They work hard and deserve a pat on the back. Keep on ha having huddles they help.
