    I have been working at Sweetwater full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    You've likely heard about the free arcade, the cafeteria, the slide, and the fitness center. Yes, these are real benefits to working at Sweetwater. If you're in sales, you have access to an instrument lending library, tons of incentives, and a comfortable working environment. There's a DVD/video game lending library open to all employees. Warehouse employees can move from part time to full time after roughly three months if their performance is adequate.

    Cons

    I'm glad to work for Sweetwater, but I hate how the warehouse is treated as second-class citizens. It's no secret. Obviously you want to reward profit centers, but we are truly treated as disposable. The starting wage is much lower than any other entry-level warehouse job in the area, by several dollars an hour. The raises are unpredictable and based on tenure, not performance. Lots of college students working in the warehouse, which can be either fun or annoying, depending on the person and the day. Mandatory overtime with literally no warning (I mean at 4:59pm, you're told that you're staying til 7). Oh, and classic rock / 80s hair metal blasting all day long. Bring some aspirin.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Apparently whatever you're doing is working. The problems of accuracy, efficiency, and quality output can be solved with one simple equation. If you want better performance, you have to pay better. If that means no more college students and whoever's application is on top of the pile, so be it. If you're unwilling to pay a competitive wage for the job, you have to accept employees who care less, slack more, and respect none.
