    Pros

    The pay is decent (union contract) and the health benefits are excellent for the size of the business / the industry.

    Cons

    Mostly incompetent management. Too much interpersonal drama. An inconsistent adherence to policies and a lack of internal recognition for going above and beyond.


  3. Good benefits, but not worth it unless you need the insurance.

    Pros

    Great benefits package. Good pay at lower levels. Quick progression through union pay scale.

    Cons

    Once you have been there for about 7 years, you can get stuck at your pay level with little chance of increase. Lots of management vs. employee mentality in the company. Little chance of recognition unless you are liked by upper management. Management is adverse to change.

    Advice to Management

    More focus is needed on the morale and culture of the store, which requires change on the management level, not just parties and focus groups. Management needs to be seen as accountable to its own policies before they will be able to enforce them with employees without hurting morale.
