    I have been working at Cost Plus full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Freedom to run the business. Pretty fair time off and benefit package. Good opportunity for promotion. Excellent support staff. They give you the tools to do your job.

    Cons

    Typical retail stuff - Human resources staff is a liability, company wide. Hours, holidays, store sets, grumpy customers, .... That's every retail store.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    After being purchased by Bed Bath and Beyond, keep your culture. Don't forget what got you there.
