    Pros

    - Great environment - Fun people - Amazing Customer Service - Flexible schedule

    Cons

    - Flex schedule (you always have to call just 2 hours in advance to know if you have to work on that day or not), but usually flex are just for seasonal employees.

    Advice to Management

    Just keep doing a great job with the team!

    Pros

    Great benefits! 401k and stock purchase plan, minimum 4 weeks paid vacation and you get that time as soon as you start, most generous paid sick time policy I have ever seen, hosts several employee events/celebrations each year, casual dress code, school assistance up to $5000 a year, gym and cafeteria on site, opportunity to earn yearly bonus, flexible schedules allow for nice home/work life balance, 25% discount in stores, very approachable and down to earth executives.

    Cons

    Bonus is based on company wide results, not your individual efforts, no real fast track to move up within the company

    Pros

    Fun environment where the people truly care about you. 25 percent discount really comes in handy.

    Cons

    Barely above minimum wage salary. Lots of people come and go because they find the job boring or just are not motivated enough by the same tasks over and over.

    Advice to Management

    Offer better compensation and benefits to part time workers. Increase salary for those who have worked more than one year.

    Pros

    Awesome products, you can be creative with your customers and help them create a dream living space.

    Cons

    This is not a con, this job is very physical, must be able to move heavy objects.

    Advice to Management

    Corporate needs to know how much people in the stores love their job. They dedicate hard hours to make it a beautiful and inspiring place to visit.
