    Promotions almost always from within. Great support from superiors. Good pay in comparison to similar companies. Great benefits and 401K

    Cons

    Nothing really. Hard work brings fair compensation.

    Pros

    For a retail job, the pay and benefits are great and hard to beat. Regular raises, paid holidays, avg. vacation time, etc. No discount, but free membership.

    Cons

    Your experience really depends on how well you are liked by certain managers - favoritism is rampant. Mixed groups of managers/supervisors/hourly cashiers and stockers are regular drinking buddies... more gossip than middle school... and if you stay out of the cliques, you're accused of not being a team player. Some managers are great, others are smothering, loud-mouth, micro-managers who will make your shift nearly unbearable.

    Advice to Management

    Promote hard-working, fair, consistent and knowledgeable workers - not just the ones you are friends with.
