    Pros

    Enjoy my co-workers and the work is really easy. Pretty good discount, but even better after 5 years when it goes to 40%.

    Cons

    Manager has zero interaction with employees or on sales floor. When mgr is required to be on floor, frequently doesn't know POS or what options are available to customers in terms of product or services. Really poor inventory. For furniture customers, sometimes have to wait weeks for something that is supposed to be in stock. Not much better for inventory in housewares. Refuse to sell products on display in store even when there are more than one or discontinued but still in warehouse (and will not be re-stocked in house). Also display products that are not available for sale either because product is not available from vendor yet or sold out.

    Advice to Management

    Fire whoever does corporate buying (never enough of the products that customers historically always purchased in large numbers with excess stock provided on items not purchased. Advice would be to tailor for local customers. Need a CB2 (the younger, hipper, cheaper Crate & Barrel) which is more in line with local population (all associates say we would rather work there!)
