Pros

For a part time job this has been one of the better places that I have worked. They offer flexible scheduling, paid time off, profit sharing, and 401 k, and 1.5 time on Sundays for part time employees. Coworkers and management are generally friendly and easily approachable. They also offer many training opportunities for employees to take advantage of. As the Waite Park location is close to the corporate offices I see many members of management coming in to see how work is performed and talk with employees.

Cons

There seems to be a constant downward pressure on hours. It seems every 6mo period they cut available hours for departments. This results in a more stressful workplace and overlapping of many positions. There are not many opportunities for employees to move to full time at the store level the but company always seems to be posting management/corporate positions for employees to apply for.

Advice to Management

Customers appreciate having shorter check out lines and more workers on the floor to ask questions to and help them locate product. The constant cutting of man hours leads to many frustrated customers. Also, hiring consultants to follow us with stopwatches to determine how we can improve efficiency is not good for morale.

    Pros

    They have pretty flexible hours and they make it easy to request days off. Also, management is pretty good at making everything run smoothly.

    Cons

    They don't pay very well-- it would be similar to working at walmart. They also don't offer a discount on food, which surprised me. Instead, they reward people points if they do something like come in early, and once you get 20 points you can get a $20 gift card.
