Pros

Flexible hours. Time and a half. Benefits for employees working at least 25 hours a week. Guaranteed AMEX card to all employees. They treat student workers very well. Opportunity for cross-training

Cons

You have to work a long time before you are offered any morning shifts. Most entry-level employees are given evening/closing shifts. It's not easy to shift from part-full time.

Advice to Management

Allow more flexibility in schedule rotation to give closing employees some opening shifts if they need/want them for incentive.

    Pros

    Benefits for part time workers. The best pay rate among retailers. Plenty of opportunity in all departments.Very safety conscious.Very active in the community.

    Cons

    Promotion to full time based solely on seniority with not much attention paid to job performance.Feedback from supervisors is sometimes slow in coming and often times comes through the grapevine.

    Advice to Management

    Pay a little more attention to job performance when moving people into full time positions. Supervisors and managers should be more forthcoming with feedback and not leave employees guessing as to whether they will receive that promotion they were hoping for.

  2. Great company with early upward movement if you show great work ethic

    Pros

    Great place to go through college and work at the same time, with room for advancement.

    Cons

    Working in any of the Ancillary departments makes it much more difficult to advance into management because the managers do not see you working all day.

    Advice to Management

    Always be improving yourself, because when you do (with a great attitude) your employees will want to do the same.
