    Pros

    The people i work with are great and management are very understanding and accommodating due to the fact i have young children and they work my hours around them.

    Cons

    Some of the problems are not dealt with. Some of the communication between people is very spotty and sometimes not very clear .

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time on the shop floor watching employees to see who need help and refreshing on how things are done

    Pros

    Great Career oppurtunities
    Fast paced environment
    ample chances to learn new skills
    High turn over
    friendly staff
    fast expansion opening new stores at a high pace

    Cons

    some methods of getting stock into stores
    sometimes runs out of best selling lines in the company during peak times
    contradictions in senior management
    support can sometimes lack due to wage budgets being competative

    Advice to Management

    increasing wages by a small amount above minimum wage would increase possible work environments
    increase salary wages with staff changes as are usually left out during minimum wage increases causing some management to feel under appreciated

    Benefits lack for salary staff who can sometimes work far above hours but not get any rewards incl no sickness being paid even when working far above average hours on a weekly basis
