    Pros

    Good pay good hours nice people good parties for goals met during holiday season and good environment to start part time work

    Cons

    Management needs to be consistent throughout shifts. People need to be held accountable more often and include suggestions from employees into meetings.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the picking of favorites. Train the new staff with emphasis on rewards cards and different forms of payment. People still write checks to pay!

    Pros

    Good base pay. Everyone starts out at $9 and it will be raised to $10 next year. Lots of benefits. Great family atmosphere.

    Cons

    Management gets pushed to try a lot of new "innovative" ideas that don't necessarily work. Pressuring management makes everyone stress

    Advice to Management

    Ease up on your supervisors. We are only trying to follow the rules.

    Pros

    The people are relatively nice. Everyone gets along. We get the work done and get out when we need to.

    Cons

    The managers gripe a lot. Some people have a lot of attitude. The people are quiet and it's hard to communicate with just the walkies.

    Advice to Management

    We need to better the fitting room and the way everyone gets trained.

    Pros

    The other employees are nice people and so is the management. We get time-and-a-half on Sundays, and the higher ups make an effort to work around our personal lives and any health issues.

    Cons

    Employees only get a %10 discount and there is never enough staff on the floor to help customers. It sometimes often interferes with training, because people get called up to the front to ring.

    Advice to Management

    Having more people on the floor will cut down on the amount of shrink and make the stores a nicer place to shop (as well as a nicer place to work). Ultimately, the increase in business and decrease in shrink should balance out the cost of employing extra workers.
