    Pros

    friendly atmosphere with associates and customers

    Cons

    no work/life balance, managers expected to work ungodly hours, manager pay is NOT competitive, manager is held accountable for all shrink, including District Manager mistakes, distribution center mistakes, and trucking/shipment mistakes. Company hires outside company for promotion before promoting from within. All upper management plays favorites and does not listen to store level managers or associates. Company does not have the interests of their associates at heart. They treat all store level associates, including manager like thieves. There is never enough payroll to get work done. High turnover rate, poor pay, stores always understaffed.

    Advice to Management

    Find people who care about those that work for you at the lower level, quit being greedy. Quit taking employee suggestions as your own and not giving credit to those to which it is due. Pay your associates better and staff the stores better to control shrink.

    Pros

    Very clean and well maintained store. Always getting the right amount of freight to satisfy the amount of business and to keep customers happy. Great management staff with years of experience with the company.

    Cons

    One manager and one cashier is a little stressful at times but overall no cons.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. Very pleased with how management runs their stores.
