I have been working at Cost Plus full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

Always busy with customers, freight and new product. The company has your back with belligerent customers. Managers put school and family first. Flexible with scheduling and decent hours for college students.

Cons

Explorer program has great perks for the customers, but never good enough in stats. Extended hours during Christmas are extremely difficult, open for Easter! Need to change Sunday hours to reflect the other tenants 12 pm to 6 pm. Raise pay scale for department leads and supervisors, clothing retailers pay their supervisors $2-$5 more per hour.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Biggest disappointment was the drop in discount due BBBY. Employees should have been grandfathered in. Most employees were okay with the pay because of the discount.

    I have been working at Cost Plus full-time

    Pros

    It's a fun, flexible work environment with lots of great people. There is a lot of room for creativity and its fun to learn about all the unique products.

    Cons

    Like any other retail job, you are overworked and underpaid. The communication isn't always great, and the work load is very heavy.

    I worked at Cost Plus part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Some of the best people Ive ever worked with.
    Promote heavily from within.
    If you express to management that your interested in advancing, they'll make it happen.

    Cons

    Heavy work load, you often end up doing other peoples jobs.
    Hours get cut pretty bad post holiday.
    They push the explorer program to a point of making employees miserable over their percentages.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Explorer is at a saturation point,
    lay off your dedicated employees.
