Pros

The company has awesome benefits and I've been through a few reorganizations and they always seem to take care of their people. They are dedicated on hiring individuals that strive to be the best and will help them on this journey.

Cons

It's retail so you work crazy hours and holidays.

    Pros

    Strong emphasis on Employee satisfaction Excellent Benefits and Bonus incentives Better than competitive pay

    Cons

    Long Hours, averaging 60/week as a salaried manager Nights, Weekends and ALL Holidays 6+ day work weeks several weeks a year In other words, no such thing as a work/life balance. its all work, including several times daily phone calls.

    Advice to Management

    Remember that managers are employee's too, and family should be higher on the priority list. Their is no use to having an SOP if stores are allowed to deviate from that and create their own policies or procedures.
