Senior (Former Employee) Minneapolis, MN

ProsEmployee Discount. Other than that, there's not much to write home about.

ConsNo regularity or schedule consistency. Be prepared to sacrifice nights, weekends, holidays. (as with any retail job). Career Growth and advancement depends heavily on present store management. My advice is to discuss your career with store leadership and evaluate the feedback you receive. If they are receptive, encouraging and supportive, then I strongly suggest you pursue those ambitions as opportunities do exist for those with desire & have a welcoming store leadership. If your career plans are not well received, do not waste your time. Being an hourly employee, you are very disposable and can be easily replaced.

Advice to Senior ManagementIf you truly want productive and strong store leadership, provide them with better training and ongoing education. There is also a severe gap for field employees who wish to advance their careers with this company. Employee retention should be top priority and field experience should be highly valued at the corporate level.
