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

Pros

They had young managers and employed newer techniques for keeping the employees feeling heard and providing cohesiveness.

Cons

They seemed unsure of what they wanted exactly from employees during times when the store was open and never trained anyone in how to deal with customers the way they wanted, if they indeed did have something specific they were looking for. I would walk around offering to assist people, which is what they told us to do, but they never seemed to be getting what they wanted, and never told us really what that was.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Customer service training needs to improve.

    Surrounded by stuff from around the world. Customers are usually interesting.

    Management was okay. They did evals for the workers after a mystery shopper's eval when we had only been working for a couple weeks.
