    Pros

    Pay is good. Most employees are great to work with.

    Cons

    I was told I was "above average" on my hours. Had to give back 9 hours this week because they gave out 9 hours more to me last week when they had call-outs, and employees quitting/getting fired. Never told this before but was told this coming week I needed to be cut the hours. Be careful if receiving extra hours.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest with part time employees and explain "above average" hours. Don't give out extra hours if you plan on taking it back.

    The company USED to be about the employee and making sure they had an outside life.

    Pros

    You meet some great people......the training is very extensive so you are able to answer just about any customer question.

    Cons

    Their pay is very unreasonable for the work they want out of you! They never say THANK YOU for a job well done!!!!!

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees well and they might stick around and maybe start saying thank you!

    Pros

    This was an amazing company to work for. Once I was hired, they trained me to be a great sales associate. Overtime I learned new things and how to handle customer issues.

    Cons

    There isn't much room for a ladder to climb in this company.

    Pros

    Great customer service, Great product knowledge, Flexible scheuales, Great for college students or anyone with a fulltime job

    Cons

    part time means you will not work more than 23 hours a week, no health benifits, no growth opportunities, discount is only 20% (customers get 20% coupons) my location was always understaffed, you will be over worked to compensate for the lack of employee coverage on the floor

    Advice to Management

    hire more employees

    Pros

    None, as I feel the company does not provide anything worth notice.

    Cons

    Note: This is for Corporate office Only.
    This is the MOST horrible company I have ever worked for. It's a top-down environment, and to make it worse, the people in top are clueless. Company's culture is real terrible, and because of the the employees morale is at the lowest, which is why the bare minimum gets done. Bonus structure is awful as well. I would recommend not to join this company.

  11. Don't ever expect to transfer at the same rate of pay

    Pros

    Flexible hours, 20% discount, at-cost merchandise

    Cons

    Everything else. The upper management is all money hungry and crazy. They do not know how to talk with store management or employees, encourage them, or promote a healthy work environment. They cut my pay nearly $6/hour because I transferred to a store closer to my home, after 6 months of already being at the current store! Surprise to me! If it's your first job, it'll be fine, but I'm too valuable to have stayed with this company any longer. Linens-N-Things was much better.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate and value your employees. Pay them fairly. Retail is not an easy job.
