    Pros

    Great managers (obviously varies by store)
    Comfortable work attire
    Friendly coworkers
    Nice store discount

    Cons

    Customers are pretty demanding, will jump on you if they feel like you're lacking in any way
    The store is pretty large, knowing where everything is will take a while
    A lot of things to learn at first. Overwhelming but eventually gets better
    Hours can be pretty early, as early as 5am for shipment

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nothing so far, really enjoying how they treat their employees in the company! The managers are really upfront with wanting employees to be attentive to customers and to work hard everyday, which they in turn use to base hours and overall respect. Great company values.

    In my position its perfect but not a very high salary, I've noticed in upper management its seems to be hard to balance life and work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I've noticed that a lot of competitors offer more incentives, maybe we should be offering a little more to get more clientele. Also i feel as if employees should be trained better.
