Pros

Flexible hours, nice work environment. Close to home

Cons

No raises in 5 years at the corporate office. Made feel should be grateful to have a job. Workers who earn much less than managers are given a lot more responsibility. Pass the buck seems to be the attitude of most managers who refuse to accept responsibility. Outdated systems, short technical staff and faulty equipment makes it hard to get your job done most days.

Advice to Management

Wake up and take care of your people! Stop promoting the brown noses. Make managers more accountable for their hours. Us little people are! Raises would be a big step!

    Pros

    Employee discount--50-65%. Low cost access to decorate you own home with quality fabrics.

    Cons

    Little or no opportunity for advancement, low pay, SPH goals often unattainable. All new sales associates enticed with FT hours. Only PT hours (20-25 hrs week)are actually offered. Much technical expertise needed to be successful. Not properly compensated for this knowledge.

    Advice to Management

    Request to peer review store management. Poor store management. Anyone at corporate paying attention? HR?

    Pros

    Fun to see the new fabrics on a regular basis

    Cons

    They entice prospective new-hires with dreams on design and creativity, where as it is strictly a retail establishment and management puts constant pressure on all employees to SELL, SELL,SELL!!

    Advice to Management

    Stop micromanaging the sales staff and put people in the H.R. Dept. who actually listen to the employees who call asking for help with their insane managers.......you do nothing but sweep complaints under the already dirty rug .
