Pros

Lovely customers that it's okay to give the best customer service possible

Cons

It's 3 weeks before Christmas and I just got my hours cut from 29 to 9.5 even though when I asked management they said they had no problems with me.

Advice to Management

Hope all the 20 year olds you hired for Christmas stick around.

    Management worked with my college schedule, and nice coworkers.

    Cons

    Low Pay.
    Limited/Slow advancement opportunities.
    Management doesn't listen to ideas that may improve the way things are done.

    Advice to Management

    Give more advancement opportunities.
    Open your ears to employees who have ideas that can change the store for the better.

    You'll develop a thick skin, or quit.

    Pros

    -There is a great deal of autonomy to help customers.
    -Working with brides and new home owners to create registries was the best part of my day. I really enjoyed taking them on what was essentially a guided shopping spree!
    -In general my store was in a well to do part of an already lovely small city, so most of the customers were fun to work with, easy to sell to, and very polite.
    -Lots of opportunity to move into management since very few people can tolerate the culture of abuse.
    -If you're organized you can really shine during Back to School pack and ship season!

    Cons

    Corporate seems to be stuck in a culture of abuse. I could often hear our DM screaming profanities at our SM and OpsM from downstairs. In one year we saw 6 SMs in our district step down to less stressful dept. manager positions.
    Many dept managers were frighteningly lazy and left most of the closing duties to me - I was the CST. I can only pray other stores are better.

    Advice to Management

    Take some courses in anger management, communication, marketing, sales, and management. You'll probably see much less employee turn over. I was part of the team that set and opened my store, but by the time I moved away (and quit rather than transfer) I was the only person left from the original team.
