    It's Okay---

    Cashier (Current Employee) Arden, NC

    ProsGood pay. Schedules are on a better rotation. People whine about it, but it is better than it was 5 years ago. Good benefits.

    ConsHR practices are PC but may prevent them from hiring the best person for the job.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBack your employees up. Abusive customers exist. Enabling them helps no one and causes the corporation to lose money.

    Experience of a lifetime

    ASM (Current Employee) Sanford, NC

    ProsWork with amazing people, great customer interactions..

    ConsManagers are salary and work Minimum of 50 hours per week, But typically its more between 60-70, with no comp time..Closing shift goes in at 12pm and sometimes stays until 3-4 am during spring.
    District Manager shows up every couple of months(he only has 11 stores, Not sure what he does with rest of time), but when he does will walk and blow up over the smallest issue. EX:someone forgot to put broom back in closet after sweeping their area, which equals they are not doing anything

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet back in touch with your employees. Having a phone interview once a tear is very inpersonal and everyone doesn't do it anyway..The CEO has lost touch with the running of the stores.
