Cons

Senior Management sometimes sets goals at unachievable levels and timeframes.
 Payroll lacking in order to give customer service as needed
Bonus is lacking compared to other companies
Guidance is usually opposite from district leadership, to Regional and then Corporate staff
Highly Loss Prevention driven and focused company, sometimes a little overboard.
Shipping from DC's can incur quite a bit of shrink and no control by store, but all accountability.
Lack of training for management staff leads to high turnover.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

More training for Management staff, a set training schedule with District Leadership held accountable, has to be supervised by someone outside the District Team.

Payroll has to be looked at more closely as staffing levels can be inadequate at times due to cutbacks. Competition is going to be based on service and at times there are no sales associates on the floor to help.

Getting out of touch with the customer seems to be the trend as the company cuts back on payroll and is using more visual aid tools for customer self service. This is good for the customer who does their research but not for the 1st time parent of a little leaguer, football player, etc etc.

    Pros

    You are part of a successful company with a good reputation, the jobs and tasks were easy, able to interact with customers and help inform them what product would best fit their needs

    Cons

    the day to day job can easily get boring and monotonous if business is slow, it was hard to build relationships with other employees due to competition and lack of job security, the pay was not competitive at all for part time employees, unflexible scheduling, i was laid off without notice until i showed up to look at the schedule, quite embarassing

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    build a more positive and energetic morale, offer more competitive pay and/or commission incentives, be open to give part time employees more hours and advance notice of future schedules

    No opinion of CEO
