    Pros

    Good co-workers, usually department manager would help with training, computer training before going into department.

    Cons

    Too much computer training that you would not remember it all by the time you were in the department. Low wage, negotiated it up from experience and still did not make much of a difference. Hour caps so no benefits, 90 review was not on time, often bothered on lunch breaks.

    Advice to Management

    Pay employees more based on experience even if starting at an entry level position. Focus on employees more and higher wage caps for hourly employees.

    Pros

    Have been working for the company for almost 4 years, they treat each employee as an individual not just a big group of workers. Easy to move up if you have the drive and ambition to do so. Great benefits after very little time working, and a fantastic stock program. Raises are good too :)

    Cons

    Long hours, but I'm full time.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing, and the company will continue to grow.

    Pros

    Most fellow employees are a joy to work with Benefits not bad for full time employees

    Cons

    Retail work schedule and it's variance. Push by upper management to do 120% - no incentive

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on the employees and their advice - they're the ones on the sales floor doing the work.

    Pros

    Fun people to work with if they don't the job so seriously.

    Cons

    Store Manager is a pain in the neck and second in command is not any better. But the other assistant managers perfect the way they are. Oh and if they want to get rid of you they cut your hours to almost nothing to force you to quit. No incentives for long standing employees, they basically abuse them because they stay the longest.

    Advice to Management

    Communication

    Pros

    Great first job for any teenagers looking to get some job experience while still in high school, job was very flexible with working around my busy schedule of doing track, AP testing and Forensics in high school. Some weeks I only got 4-6 hours (of my own choosing) which was perfect for the time. Overall great atmosphere to work in and upper management is very friendly.

    Cons

    Downside was it was very hard straight out the gate to get more than 10 hours a week with so many other Courtesy clerks working there, it wasn't until I became courtesy clerk lead (a position no longer recognized by the corporation) that I was able to get at least 20 hours sometimes more. Other than that sometimes supervisors can be very unwilling to let Courtesy clerks have any leeway to make their own decisions to open a register to allow waiting times of customers to dwindle, never had such an issue with upper management store manager and assistant store managers were very willing and encouraging of Courtesy clerks to make decisions to pull people out of line so check out times were faster.

    Advice to Management

    Courtesy clerks who are cross trained as cashiers should be allowed to determine on their own to pull customers out of line so that they might be checked out faster, nobody likes long lines and time wasted getting their groceries out the door.

    Pros

    Good place to work, love working with customers/talking to them when helping them out to their car

    Cons

    Hours/pay aren't bad but your paycheck very often disagrees (took me 2 pay days to buy an alternator and an starting to save for a car CD player deck and install fee), sometimes they don't set "set times"

    Advice to Management

    management is great.....give more hours and $1 extra pay and more of a "set hours/shift"
