    Pros

    Bonuses, great coworkers, most of management will work with you for special occasions and circumstances, benefits are decent for full time employees, stock purchase program and a discount

    Cons

    It's retail so if you don't working with the public is not for you. Say goodbye to holidays with your family and friends.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to staff concerns and issues, be approachable, maybe even polite so many of our managers now are just plain rude to associates. Lack of communication is going to destroy this company from store and market level.

  2. Great company to work with.

    Pros

    Fair pay rate. You will have lots of opportunities to show upper management that you have what it takes to be a good department manager. Lots of opportunities to move up in the company.

    Cons

    Upper management can over work you most of the time. They expect a lot from you even when your department is short staff. They always think you have enough people when in fact you are short staffed. They can give you projects with very unrealistic time limit. Some customers can be very rude and challenging.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your associates with respect and in turn they will also respect you.

    Pros

    You get to meet a lot of people and the environment between coworkers is very collaborative. Hours are available for good work experience and location was close to home.

    Cons

    Individual manager and higher up level are very demanding of the employee commitment and work hours. Lunch breaks are not honored and hour request are not considered. Also, injury claims are difficult to process.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on integrating associate opinion into the managing dynamic because feedback is often lost. Annual review of employees is useful however this does not translate over to the managing level.

    Pros

    - Easy to move up in the company
    - If you stick with the company, the pay and career opportunities get better.
    - Great coworkers

    Cons

    - Turnover rate is high, it is hard to keep people for a variety of reasons (quit after a week, fired for attendance, etc)
    - Because of the turnover rate, that's more work for the other employees
    - Dealing with customers that feel special or entitled

    Advice to Management

    Be vigilant when it comes to hiring people. If we are staffed like we should be then everything gets done. If this happened, all the O/N freight would get done, everybody on day shift can do their job, and lots of registers would be open.

    Figure out a way to lower the turnover rate.
