    Not the most pleasurable retail job, but decent enough to get by.

    Pros

    20% discount on merchandise

    You get to learn the basics of how a corporation and business runs

    You learn quite a bit about what your department and the merchandise within it

    Cons

    Terrible management (at my particular store)

    Managers do not show respect to every employee, regardless of whether or not they have done anything against them

    Little to no opportunities to move up from an hourly position

    Hourly associates are for the most part, expendable and treated as such

    The company can be very strict with some policies, and very loose with others.

    Understaffed issues/constantly working more or longer hours due to a lack of adequate workers

    Zoning can get very detailed and tedious, sometimes taking hours to complete a single project

    You may be asked to work late hours (a closing shift) and may end up getting out three hours after you were scheduled, if not later.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ask employees about their department and what has been going on. Stay involved and knowledgeable of what is happening on the sales floor, and treat each employee with respect instead of just a few.
