    Pros

    Flexible hours, friendly associates, competitive pay for retail. Great entry point to learn a lot of potentially valuable skills if you are willing to work for it. Tuition assistance was extremely helpful.

    Cons

    Holiday hours and weekends. Would consistently work 50+ hours a week during the holiday season and haven't had a Thanksgiving week or X-Mas week off in 10 years. That's fine when you are young, but is horrible when you start a family. Pay was very competitive for retail, but with the same skillset other non-retails paid better, causes a bit of turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Open at 5AM on Black Friday, don't let competitors dictate the way you treat your employees.
