    Corporate don't care about anyone

    I worked at Cost Plus full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Benefits and pay are decent

    Cons

    Flippant management, blind leading the blind policies, zero investment in employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    For HQ: hire team leads that know what they're doing and you'll have a much better staff retention rate. Time and time again, unskilled managers freaked out and fired people for no reason because they lacked the knowledge to find a real solution to the problem.
