    Pros

    A lot of fun working with a talented team, opportunity to advance and make more money at the job.

    Cons

    Tough to stand on your feet upwards of 8 hours a day. Management plays favorites and wont let you have days off.

    Advice to Management

    Allow people to give you ideas about how you can set up the store more effectively and give them some room to grow.

    Pros

    The start out pay is higher than Mininmum wage by quite a bit. There is also raises once. A year.

    Cons

    They don't offer bonus's or give you a bonus for meeting a certain mark at work. The training you have to do is kind of a drag.

    Pros

    The company is growing and every day has new challenges to offer

    Cons

    There are no mature processes and therefore lots of chaos/tribal knowledge on how things happen; getting almost anything done is a struggle. There are tons of dead wood throughout the organization who are only trying to keep their paychecks coming in.

    Salaries are very weak and benefits are an afterthought. Bonuses and raises do not reflect performance ratings. Company matching contributions to 401k require one year of service for eligibility and are only paid annually in March, what a joke.

    Advice to Management

    Step into the 20th century with your benefits. If your not going to pay people what they're worth, at least open up eligibility for what little you do offer.

    Start clearing out the people who have been in place for so long they've grown roots; they're killing the performance of anyone who has a clue.

    Basically: grow-up. You're a big company now, start acting like it.
