    Pros

    All coworkers, bosses and COSs(front-line supervisors) are friendly
    higher pay than other stores

    Cons

    Most customers are rude, entitled, bratty and don't treat you like a person.
    You have to stand for your entire shift.
    You have to sell Plus memberships and credits, which you don't get compensated for separately. Someone who sells nothing and the best seller in the store get the same bonus, which is one time a year in March.
    Shifts generally run half an hour longer than they are scheduled.
    Schedules are posted as little as one day in advance. (good luck if you don't work on Friday)
    Not enough hours, most associates only get 13 hours a week, often people will be scheduled for 0 hours in a week.
    Casheirs also serve as cleaning crew, emergency cart associates, and all other positions

    Pros

    Works with your schedule all the time. You could be going to school or have another job and they do a great job to help you get right shifts.

    Cons

    Everyone only thinks about themselves The store could grow more if only everyone worked as a team and not see it as all for one.

    Advice to Management

    Please and actually care about your area not only care when your in trouble by your regional managers come and says things are not looking so good.

    Pros

    You get a membership while working there.

    Cons

    You have to lift heavy things all day. They annoy you to upgrade memberships to people who it would not benefit. Not a flexible job for school.

    Advice to Management

    Quit nagging the cashiers about eveything. You do not help them get better sales that eau.

    If you are on medication from a Dr. for years this should not be held against you.. And it takes to long to have someone call you about UA. 3 days and waiting

    Pros

    Great concept and philosophy started with the proper strategy and metrics in place. It has seen tremendous growth and has succeeded up to a point.

    Cons

    Mortgaging cheap, short term sales and profits like giving away memberships and diluting the value of a membership,
    Current leadership is weak and has been put in place solely to meet corporate diversity goals.

    Advice to Management

    CHANGE leadership.... get back to the basics!
