Cons
  • My advice to anyone that was looking for a job would be to run very far away from TCP until all the upper management changes (in 58 reviews)

  • This company needs to get their act together, Floor sets are simple and well explained but the updates to the sets are overwhelming (in 33 reviews)

    Pros

    Good discount, Flexible hours.East interview and easy job to get.

    Cons

    Long hours especially if you work the closing shift. Managers get hired off of referrals so management literally knows nothing. No real room for advancement

    Advice to Management

    Sometimes your employees know more than you so listen sometimes. Also downtown brooklyn fulton street, the manager there is horrible id replace her ASAP.

    Pros

    Working at TCP has its perks: - Great employee discount. - Flexible scheduling. - Friendly coworkers. It's a good starter job to get you into the retail world. It is very fast-paced & there's always something to do.

    Cons

    However, there are some things that make working there very stressful. - Children will destory everything! - Very few hours are offered. - Only 2 or 3 employees during a shift, so recovering the store is really hard when the store is very busy.

    Advice to Management

    At my store, the management team does a pretty good job with prioritizing tasks. The downfall is just that little hrs are offered to our store, so upkeeping such a high-traffic store is difficult.

    Pros

    The management team is amazing as well as co workers. We are more like a family than anything.

    Cons

    Busy all the time. The work load is a lot for the hours given. Sales associate can't pass 25 hours. Corporate expects so much and they can never make up their minds

    Pros

    ALWAYS BUSY Be it new floorsets, hardmrks, helping customers, processing shipment. Easy to move up due to high turnover

    Cons

    Little hours...at least at my store bc its really small, I feel pay is ridiciuosly low for sales associates, the dress code is bizarre we are always having to ise ladders l, step stools etc but cant wear tennis shoes?? Crazy accidents are bound to happen

    Advice to Management

    Asvice to CORPORATE! STOP having us come off so annoying and pushy at the cashwrap. The rewards program is understandable but the place credit cards and survey blabber gets us rused, eyes rolled ar us and sometimes ppl are just like forget it and walk away from the whole transaction. Seriously

    Pros

    Good employee discount, fun environment

    Cons

    Floorset change too many times, price updates everyday create chaos, often times resulting in moving product to accommodate sales. Not enough hours to finish projects (usually 2 people at all times).

    Advice to Management

    Give more hours for more coverage. Quit doing price updates so often and moves.
