Pros

nice friendly co-workers.....can't think of anything else.

Cons

Unprofessional slave driving management. refused to hire enough employees, high turn-over rate, pay rate, advancement, and hours given are based on who sucked up the most. I was often the only associate in the department and when i suggested that there be more employees to improve customer service, I was given a condescending inconsiderate response by the store manager of all people!! Many of the employees are expected to do the impossible and aren't rewarded or even acknowledged when we somehow accomplished it. Crap definitely roles down hill in this company. I also encountered some of the most entitled, stuck up customers out of all the retail jobs that i've had. Run away and run FAST!!!!!

Advice to Management

stop using favoritism and be more considerate of employees.

    Advice to Management

    Some managers are very arrogant. Rather than micro-managing, jump in to give associates a little support and focus on more intense training to allow for future advancememnt

    Pros

    The schedule was always clear and concise. There was usually the number of hours available that you requested.

    Cons

    At times you felt overwhelmed and understaffed. There was an unreal expectation for what you should know about every product.
