Pros

The associates are all great. Management is really great about keeping us informed and motivated. The company is really great about PTO and also making sure you take your breaks and lunchs away from the store so you have a rest period during your shift.

Cons

With the economy being down the sales goals are hard to reach. This puts pressure on the managers and the staff . They want us to have a fun environment while at work, but its been very stressful trying to make the goals.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

They tell us not instill fear in our associates to get them motivated or to micro manage, but they turn around and do this to their management team. They need to lead by example.

    Pros

    great discount
    flexible with over all availibility

    Cons

    no growth
    lack of communication between managers & staff
    favorites get what they want
    goals are set too high to achieve
    write ups for everything
    days requested off get questions while favorite employees get off whenever they want, (including weekends, sat & sun)
    unfair treatment to employees who arent liked
    petty drama in the store & manager doesnt do anything about it

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    dont play the "favorites" game. be fair and appreciate your employees. basically everything i wrote in the "cons" section, needs to be worked on and if a ton of different stores are complaining about the same things, than there is a serious problem.

    Cons

    One of the worst managers I have ever worked for. Upper mgmt ignores complaints and concerns of employees. No praise.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to the complaints from the employees. Look at turn over and why. Promote competent people. Give positive reinforcement.
