    I worked at A.J. Wright and Associates part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The only good thing about working there was the store closed at 9pm so I didn't have to work super late.

    Cons

    Poor pay, always cleaning the store and hanging up and putting away clothes ALL DAY.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The store needs to be more organized so people can find what they are looking for. This way the store wouldn't be trashed by the end of the day.

    I worked at A.J. Wright and Associates

    Pros

    AJ Wright has a good LP Program, are hands-off and you don't have to make court appearances on behalf of the company. Opportunity to work with sophisticated CCTV equipment as well as floor walking experience.

    Cons

    Too many store involved duties and employee participation events. Store Management tries to compete with Loss Prevention and promotes a negative challenge on both operational and LP side. Not a lot of opportunity for advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more money and and seclude your detectives from store happenings. The regular hourly associates should not be involved with the detectives as much as they are. This inhibits much needed internal investigations.
