Pros

Good job to have any type of job during this economy. The job was easy to perform and the other cashiers were friendly.

Cons

Asked to push loyalty cards constantly, monotonous job. Basically, just standing around doing nothing, but straightening up the display area and cashiering some times.

    Pros

    Having a job, Team environment, growth opps if you brown nose the right ppl. Coachable employees at my store, TV's on the sales floor

    Cons

    As company goes from transforming itself from a retailer to brand, they have rethink a lot of different thnigs. the processes that are getting installed are great, but you have to let the store teams master them first, before add more and more on the plate.

    Morale is a 911. its the most thankless organization that I have worked for.

    Advice to Management

    Grow your own talent and promote within instead of hiring random SM's from other companies when you have men and women busting their humps night and day coming in on days off just to get looked over.

    Pros

    Career opportunity, Promotibility and Company growth

    Cons

    Upper Management and "home-office" are out-of-touch with actual store level day-to-day efforts and their providing unrealistic expectations is the root of lack of positive culture
    Very little to no positive feedback when achieving financial and operational success

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time at he store level to better understand the vigorous daily routines of their teams and what changes/implementations could be exacted to excute realistic gameplans and reach the ideal balance between service and task
