    Pros

    part-time merchandisers make decent money and work around 16-20 hours in a weekend and our expected to work holidays, but don't have to. The management and employees are very good and try to work around your schedule.

    Cons

    The opportunity to move up in the company is very hard, because there are not many jobs required to run a warehouse. The warehouse I'm at has 3 managers, 7 full-time employees, and 10 part-time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work, but offer more incentive to keep part-time employees around.

    Pros

    Good advancement opportunities. Quality co-workers. Company integrity. Decent benefits.

    Cons

    Inconsistent management. Long hours. Some goals were set in contrast to other goals where failure was almost assured in one category or another.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your people in the trenches. Understand that the blanket approach is not always the best approach.

    Pros

    Great work/life, If I needed off for any reason my boss would let me go, 15min breaks along with 30min lunches.

    Cons

    If it is a small CCBCC then goodluck getting a full time job there, as the smallers ones usually have 1 full time guy and like 10 part time guys avg 20-30hours a week.

    Pros

    From my experience, the pay has been at decent levels.

    Cons

    Frank Harrison is a Christ-believer, and he has boldly added God-honoring values to the company's mission statement. I strongly agree with this move. However, God-honoring values are not lived-out in the company. The employees are extremely overworked. The company will not hire more people because it would cut into the financial bottom line. (How much money does Frank Harrison need?) Frank may not realize how bad the work environment is at the office. He does not make himself seen to the common employees. This is no excuse. He should be more in-tuned to the employees and the demands of the various jobs. Requiring salaried employees to work 65 or more hours a week is not a honorable requirement or work atmosphere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Read and follow the mission statement, daily.

    Pros

    Widely recognized brand. It is a good stepping stone. Boss was a good one and was always willing to help.

    Cons

    Good ol' boys club attitudes. Computer system is archaic and you would think that a large company like this would have current technology.
