    Pros

    People that have been there forever and know nothing else, the usual company folk
    may be happy, the few that still exist.

    Cons

    They hire parttime, give new people the hours noone else wants, such as sales when they open at 5am, or stay open until midnight. Then, when it suits them, they will cut your hours to 5 hours a week, and if you have insurance thru them, you end up owing on that. They harrass their employees to get credit applications, that is all they care about. Your bonus is $1 per application. They expect 3 apps a day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pros

    employee discount
    you wear many different hats therefore learn a lot

    Cons

    they expect far too much from their employees. helping customers, putting away stock, price changes, merchandising, setting sales, and associates are pay for performance. If you stand behind the register and do nothing else you get pay increases. If you do all of the other necessary work but don't have a high sph they actually take money away from you at review time. most employees working there on average of 5 years are actually being paid less now than they were then. $8 or $9 an hour when their starting rate was 11. I have never seen any retail company expect so much from their employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to reacess your pay scale. it is archaic.
