    Not hard to do but sometimes hard to go up.

    Sales Associate (Current Employee) Lebanon, IN

    ProsFun environment and easy to work in without having to remember 100 employees names like you would in walmart. laid back in some cases but still professional and makes it easier on the customers if you hate the "Big Box" feel.

    ConsIts hard to meet the demands at times but its much easier than the big box stores. Can be stressful when the head honcho comes to see the store.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSmaller stores need more hours too so we can get our jobs done and keep the place afloat! But you do keep the demands on us down to very manageable levels which makes for (usually) happy managers not being stressed to the core.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Not enough pay for work and time expected.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Indianapolis, IN

    ProsIt is a job in this economy and thankful to have one.

    ConsBase pay job with very little reward for extra efforts put in.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay your employees what they are worth and store managers will have good people to count on. Having new people to train all the time is a big downfall.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
