  1. Good Job for a College Student. That's about it.

    Pros

    Owner will schedule around your classes. Most of the co-workers are genuinely nice people that provide a family-like atmosphere. Consistent hours. It is a good job for part-time students. I would NOT suggest it to anyone who wants full-time.

    Cons

    Lots of drama. Management is a little nutty. Inconsistent policies among management. As a cashier, you are the person who has to deal with most of the upset customers. Owner watches over you like Big Brother. Owner also farts a lot and smells like garlic.

    Advice to Management

    Respect for starters. Positive acknowledgement would be nice, rather than just bitching.


  2. Again, Employee Morals Down.

    Pros

    It's a job. Not the best job, but a job. Customers love the wide selection of hardware and some necessities for the home. Not the place to go to while doing a construction remodel, but excellent for small repairs, and a fantastic variety of colors, In store stock of items hard to find. A GREAT place to shop for lawn and garden care. Best selection on Weber Grills in stock, or order the Weber of your dreams.

    Cons

    Not enough backup for cashiers/customer service when one is sick or one just quits. Too many College students, not enough full timers. Customers complain about the lack of service during lunch hours because of only one cashier, or no other cashiers available for those hours, and lack of customer service on the floor. Lack of raises. No reviews. Underpaid. No hope in future wages. Not a good place to raise a family from the income.

    Advice to Management

    Upper Management needs to focus on their employees and their needs. Pay attention to detail on the good workmanship. Quit nit picking over the small stuff. Everyone makes mistakes. Even You! That is how we learn. The rules that apply to the hourly help should apply to all. Us little people have no problem admitting when we are wrong, and very willing to make things right. Employees aren't born into the Hardware business, they are made. BE a good teacher.


  3. The employee moral is very low. Raises are only giving every couple of years if at all. The hourly rasies is about $0.25
