    Pros

    Not many, housing is paid for it you're in management.

    Cons

    They can't keep their word as a company, they're a totally different company once you get up here and are committed for a year.

    Advice to Management

    Make surprise visits to your stores, stop sending them your itinerary. You'd be amazed at the difference you see when they know you're not coming.

    Pros

    Pay and housing. Met some great people. The Native Alaskans were some of the nicest people I met.

    Cons

    I was one of the only managers who did not make fun of the customers. The sexists and racist remarks made by most of the other managers were just sickening. If this company was anywhere besides Alaska, they would be sued by almost every current and former employee. Discrimation at its worst here.

    Advice to Management

    Look at yourselves in the mirror. You are not the reason this company is around.

    Pros

    Helped us move to Alaska and return to lower 48 after. emlpoyed both myself and my wife.

    Cons

    Used us to get rid of old stock and then fiered us for low P&L. Found out after that it was planned this way all along. Was time when only myself and my wife were there to work 18+hrs a day. Then got complaints because wife was getting so much overtime

    Pros

    adequate pay and benefits, though for the slope it might be low.

    Cons

    Low standards for job completion (store may be run very poorly ), HR is unresponsive, no calls innovation or sense of urgency with improvement. Managers may be well overworked - six 11 hour days and a few hours on Sunday. Get everything in writing if you choose to work here.

    Advice to Management

    The company just needs more people that both care and are competent enough to do something about it.

    Pros

    Office environment, 1 or 2 supervisors with low micromanagement, decent benefits package

    Cons

    Low pay ratio to work expectations. Incompetent upper management. Cutthroat financial practices.

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you preach and treat your employees fairly across the board.
