    Pros

    It was a fun way to interact with the local community. It did have a friendly neighborhood feel. I had a lot of different roles in my position and got to move around a lot. Would highly recommend for a first job.

    Cons

    Some challenges are dealing with customers. Many are short tempered and expect results with the snap of a finger. The ability to move up in the ranks takes a lot of dedication and time.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time allowing more veteran cashiers a chance to assume more difficult tasks and roles.

    Pros

    They had some good benefits but they are all gone now.

    Cons

    There is no balance (work and home life). They have cut so many hours to save payroll, you need to be available any hours just to make a pay check that you can live on, If you have a thought on improving a process or service, keep it to yourself. They don't care and won't act on it. Which is sort of funny because the only thing they seem to care about is the dollar. They seem to be targeting all of the long term associates and pushing them out to save payroll. It looks to me like they are on a path to contract out the distribution services.

    Advice to Management

    I would share my thoughts and the ideas from others who are in the same situation but you will not listen any way so why bother.

    Pros

    There are a few benefits that they have not cut yet.

    Cons

    Out of all the stores and Distribution Centers, I don't know of any long term employee who made it to retirement. They continue to cut everything from quality products to pay and jobs while continuing to raise prices and increasing executive bonus. The communication from Corporate is inconsistent and middle management is stepping on each other trying to stay out of the "target on your back zone." The knowledgeable and competent Managers have all left and the replacements don't know what they are doing and won't listen.

    Advice to Management

    Please ( for the sake of the companies future) take a long hard look at your corporate management team. Measure where we were to where we are now. You can improve process and the bottom line without cutting pay and pushing knowledgeable people out.

    Pros

    Big company (only by number of people)

    Cons

    The job is suffering from disorganization. Everything that was done, was done without being agreed upon and thought through previously, so we often had to perform the same tasks over and over again. Technical drawings are incomplete and “technically immature”. Not to mention that no one knows what`s the final version and where it is kept. The job could be done much more effectively if the employees were interested in upgrading their knowledge in the programs they are using. This would make their work much more easier and faster. I have to complain about the bad atmosphere and disturbed and unhealthy human relations in the Department for Architectural Design. It is completely unacceptable that huge and renowned company has such uncultivated and rude employess.

    bureaucracy lack of meritocracy lack of managers with skills and knowledge

    Advice to Management

    Dont spend the money on managers that have no idea of the job. Its unfair for those who really have the knowledge and work hard and also risky for the company to keep such people in managerial positions. There is something strange with this company and the big boss should investigate it !!!
