    Pros

    It is a good place to start where you can learn good business standards.
    Not hard to get into if you know the area and can adapt quickly

    Cons

    the starting salary is not great and it would help if they had more options to advance from within rather than outside higher

    Advice to Management

    Starting salary can be better, and upper management can be easier to talk to. higher people from within rather than from outside

    Pros

    Able to make extra hours, train you, good employee discount

    Cons

    Written up over the smallest things. Not enough team work. Managers don't do their jobs. When busy no one wants to help ring. Must do your job as a cashir as well as the job of managers. Don't promote fairly

    Advice to Management

    Do your job.

    Pros

    work with a great team, laid back, not demanding, flexible availability, halloween is a very fun season, get to dress up. 30% off employee discount

    Cons

    Tedious work, we have to change sections almost weekly from isle to isle. LOTS of balloons to inflate on weekends from balloon orders.

    Advice to Management

    when its recovery time, help your employees, especially if only 1 is on the floor. Give clear instructions on what needs to be done. If something isn't done right by a specific person, tell him/her, not everyone else.
