    Pros

    Great work associates, decent discount on store items. The stores are brightly lit and comfortable to work in. The people you deal with on a day to day basis typically are nice and easy to work with. Customers appreciate and service they receive and will tell you so. It is nice to be rewarded with complements on your own hard work.

    Cons

    The management sometimes had conflicting views on things and could not sort it out between themselves. A lot of the time the blame if something had been done wrong would be placed on the associates, even though a different manager had told them to do it that way. Managers need to communicate better between each other and let the associates focus on customer service and keeping the store presentable.

    Advice to Management

    My advice would be to have team building exercises in the separate departments and for the managers of the various departments. It seemed at times that the managers were working against each other (hard goods, soft goods, front end, receiving) and even the store director didn't work with them. They all had their own separate agenda which worked against the flow of work throughout the day. If they could find a way to strategize together, the stores would benefit greatly.
