Crazy, Fun, Disorganized, Unprofessional

Sales Associate (Current Employee)

ProsIt is an upbeat and fun place to work, and employees tend to love the store and get into the products.

ConsManagement is unprofessional and tends to spend to much time in the office and not enough time doing work. The schedule is made poorly, with consistently poor staffing. Policies are inconsistent, and the message to employees about expectations and store policies is always shifting and unclear. Expectations and incentives for world market explorer metrics are ridiculous.

Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on making better POS signage and reducing confusion. Understand that people are easily confused and misled, and adjust advertisements in mailers and on signage in the store accordingly. Also, make consistent policies and ensure all stores walk the same line, on things like price modifications. Also, focus on enhancing what makes the store unique and great and don't become a generic box store.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    A strict and hard working environment.

    I have been working at Cost Plus part-time


    Pros: Decent pay, constant diversity in daily work. Fun and friendly… Cons: -WME program, is way too enforced. My hours depended on how well I did and if I didn't sign enough people up I was threatened… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More

     

    If you like to be treated like a working mule.

    I worked at Cost Plus


    Pros: nice music? air conditioned? indoors? Cons: Hyped up as a company being about "having fun" yet is actually the opposite. Supervisors rude and aggressive towards employees. Lots of "urgency" in… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
