    Pros

    Hours are consistent, Overtime is great during Holiday rushes. Company is always giving raises, and proper training, take their employees seriously! Company throws the best parties and picnics, Audits and Inventory weekends they treat us like royalty!

    Cons

    Only 3 very short breaks, but manageable if you eat ok and stay hydrated at work. Warehouse conditions can be very extreme in the summer and winter, but company provides water, ice packs, heaters, and popsicles.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    HR is the best and cant be beat!! Wendy is the go to lady, re hire needs to be adjusted.

    Pros

    They are very flexible with the hours

    Cons

    you don't get many hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to understand what the cashiers are being required to do. We have every manager pushing something different (rewards, school donations, easy tech, replacement plans). It's a lot to ask for, and even experienced cashiers such as myself will fail to meet everyone's expectations all the time.

    Pros

    innovative team, opportunity to make a positive impact on a product, good managers who listen your input, lot of opportunity fro improvment

    Cons

    introduce change is a little time consuming. Management needs to buy your idea to give you the apporaval. After this team is very supportive and engaged.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    more listening to the employees and keep working the way they are. Having qulity and customer satisfaction as top priority
