It's a very fast paced company culture and very repetitive.

    Pros

    Good starting salary for part time work. Easy to schedule around your full time job, if you have one in the Obama area.

    Cons

    Managerial incompetence abound. Too many supervisors and not enough knowledge to go around. Seems they are stuck on auto pilot since raises are given based on time worked not quality work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Know more about the company. If you are asked a question you darn well better know the answer especially when it comes to policies and procedures.

    Pros

    Excellent benefits for yourself and your family. Less than $100 for full coverage including yourself and a dependent.

    Cons

    Senior mgmt doesn't think things through before delegating, excellent end results but significant amounts of extra work prior to end result. A ton of employees with tenure who are lazy and are almost impossible to get rid of. Quarterly statements always showed Costco with higher earnings yet in store that resulted somehow in tighter payroll.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Kick out the bad seeds and those that just don't care anymore. Reward those that work hard and want to advance.
