Pros

You gain a great deal of product knowledge and sales experience. The company at its highest levels is well managed and debt free.

Cons

You can pretty much expect to be thrown under the bus by management in my experience

    Reasonable place to work for considering you get experience doing every job in the retail field.

    Pros

    As an employee you experience doing everything from being a cashier, sales associate, stocking/receiving, and possibly a bridal consultant. Monthly incentives off of random items is nice. Appraisal from managers when you do good work is a plus.

    Cons

    Required to do nearly every position available even if you do not want to, horrible and inconsistent hours very from week to week, managers can for lack of a better term be super anal when it comes to manage overall store look, can only have so many full time employees so once they are filled as an hourly you can not receive any health/medical benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn how to manage time better when it comes to freight or projects or learn how to actually do the work rather than sitting back and forcing others to do it for you.

    Great pay, little incentives to work hard or drive the business. Perfect for clock watchers

    Pros

    Re: Corporate Office in Union New Jersey
    Great Pay for the Expectations
    Highly Stable Company
    Good Work Hours
    Good Family Life Balance
    Company is growing and performing well financially
    Stock vesting over 5 years is great incentive, and with the company growth is a great retention tool
    One of the few retail employers in the area
    Decentralized model is great - rarely do you see stores getting this much ownership

    Cons

    Little to none HR - well below standard training, development, recruiting, career advancement promotion, termination processes. This is a $9B company
    Talent level low. Executives not well seasoned though top merchants are strong
    Minimal opportunity to try different functions/get promoted. No internal job board
    CEO and company management rarely communicate with employees. Never saw the CEO once
    Hard to have ownership as a corporate employee with decentralized stores
    No corporate giving and ethics violations? - "encourages" suppliers to donate to chosen charities
    Does not pay for any type of further education for employees - most pharma companies do in NJ

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you treat your employees right, they will deliver so much more than can help drive the business over the long term. It will also impact your retention
