    Pros

    Great work-life balance. Positive company culture. High growth in certain areas of the company. Management allows for a lot of autonomy. Some interesting projects to be involved with. Beautiful facilities. Some flexibility available--you can sometimes work from home, use the gym on lunch breaks, no limit on sick days.

    Cons

    Work can sometimes be monotonous (probably true anywhere). Some areas of the company can be territorial about work/projects, which isn't conducive to quality work.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure highers have proper skill set.

    Pros

    Part timers get good hours if you are a hard worker (30+). Great employee discount. It's a very determined customer based business, managers care more about a happy customer then clean floor. Very easy register system, easy to learn and easier to use. Every department gets an opener and closer.

    Cons

    Overpriced merchandise, and you can't use your discount on sale merchandise. Peak sale hours are always understaffed. Gondos and tables need to be stocked to perfection because there are audits frequently. There are about 5 register prompts to get customers to get a credit card/buy a warranty. Customers get easily annoyed with this. Managers place a lot of pressure on cashiers for scorecard percentage, credit cards, warranties, etc and always want you to upsell.

    Advice to Management

    Customers hate getting asked so many sales prompts and are easily irritated with the push for cards and warranties.
