    Pros

    Good benefits, friendly co workers, easy to stay busy during shift, flexible schedule for those in school, good starting job or younger folks

    Cons

    Disorganized management, heads of departments tend to conflict with each other, other than that, not many other cons I can think of

    Advice to Management

    Communicate better with each other, employees will be much more efficient. Cannot think of any other words of advice to management

    Pros

    Lots of good people to meet that worked there, genuine and kind.
    It was not too hard to jump pay grade too; if you worked full time, you could get your first pay rais in 1-2 months depending on your entering position.
    Good benifits.

    Cons

    some of the higher up's that would come into work full time are not exactly fair when it comes to getting full on promotions or even time off.
    certain jobs max out pay raises at a certain level, so if you invest too much time into a lower position it could make it really hard to get a full on promotion to a better one aside from just the pay raises.
    The store directore is a harsh man to get along with, he always talks condisendingly towards people he is not friends with.
    I've tried conversating with him while on break but he is the same way, talking back to you as if you would not underdstand what he is saying in the first place.

    Advice to Management

    Most of the management I new where good people who where easy to get along with. But to the others, I would say to be more human and look at at ALL your employees and see them equally.

    Pros

    Working with people who are positive and friendly.
    Talking with people who are also friendly and treat me like a human being.
    Meeting others who are also down-to-earth and learning a bit about their lives.
    Relatively easy job physically, mentally, and emotionally. Not very stressful.

    Bags are frustrating. Coupons can be frustrating.
    The customers who do not treat you like a human being.

    Keep it up!

    Great benefits, employee store discounts, double time and a half holiday pay and easy to pick up more hours in other departments.

    Cons

    Rude customers, ignorant managers and no tips.

    Don't look down to your employees, they work just as hard or harder than you. Don't be judgements to them either if you don't know where they've been.
