Challenge and room for growth if you fit their mold

Unit Manager (Former Employee)

ProsFast paced and dynamic place to work full of different challenges. Their compensation packages have been consistently above average. They invest lots of time and money into training their people.

ConsThey continue to throw new products and initiatives into the market hoping to maintain share of the market and help with incremental volume despite the lack of demand for the products and it is having a negative effect on small to middle sized retail businesses. In 2012 they are instituting a 400 million dollar cost cutting program which is cutting back benefits and retirement programs.

Advice to Senior ManagementWork on coming up with realistic initiatives for retail to help grow business with out pumping out new SKUs and promotions into the market
