Pros

Clean environment with pleasant co-workers.

Cons

Management clogs pipeline, resulting in very few opportunities for employees to further their careers within the company. Employees are asked for too much for what they're paid for. Not enough praise to employees. Management is constantly late for opening shifts.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Come to work on time! Set an example for your employees. No one wants to follow a leader that can't follow the rules.

    It was very nice to go to work here as it was a friendly, upbeat escape from the drabs of an office job.

    Pros

    The company is very supportive of volunteer work and getting involved in the community. They also take good care of their employees by providing treats on occasion and having contests with prizes.

    Cons

    The work can be very tiring and monotonous. One can only enjoy folding clothing for so long before they want to get out of there. Also, the company requires that each employee greets every customer even if they've already been greeted several times, which is found by a reasonable person to be quite irritating, both for the employee, and also the customer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please understand that most customers like to be said "hello" to, but they get slightly offended and irritated when people are constantly asking if they need help. Most customers are less likely to stay in the store if they can't shop without being bothered too much.
