    Pros

    Great hours for retail - 10 to 5 and closed on Sunday
    Closed Christmas Eve too allows family time
    Great scheduling no "On Call" hours like other retailers
    Pay is better than other retailers
    great environment - not the same job every day
    this is retail - it is a shame not every one realizes it because the hours are awesome!

    Cons

    Personality conflicts/pettiness among the staff
    Light traffic makes days pass slowly
    Customers complain about the price but do not understand quality - if you want cheap go to JoAnn Fabrics!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Market better - email with special promos to get people in the door
    We are always on sale, which makes it difficult to close sales.
    Corporate office staff and management teams are on different wavelengths.
    We need to get people in the door and that should be our main priority

    Interesting and generally pleasant, but most employees are grossly underpaid for the amount of work and responsibility.

    Pros

    Lovely surroundings for those interested in home decor with generous employee discount. The atmosphere is somewhat casual and management is usually willing accommodate unexpected scheduling needs.

    Cons

    The work of creating custom decorating products is extremely detailed and errors can be very costly for the company/store. The low rates of pay do not fairly compensate for the amount of knowledge, work and responsibily required of sales associates and labor coordinators.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop underestimating the value of input from employees who work on the "front line". Experienced sales associates and labor coordinators have real life knowledge of their store's market and demographics. Require more professionalism from store managers and district managers. Make wages commensurate with the amount of responsibility expected of employees.
