Pros

none...unless you like working 6 sometimes 7 days a week, never having enough help or hours, hands tied by upper management for firing,babysitting grown ups, constant whining of workers and not being able to enjoy your time off because Susie doesn't like Sally a pro then ....

Cons

too many to list....worthless key holders, biggest bunch of paranoid people I have worked for....useless upper management....its who you know....if your well liked, you can coast...if more than 1 person doesn't....well your screwed...too much manager working alone because of no payroll....procedures.i.e. new stocking...that just make more work for managers....etc..etc...

Advice to Management

get in the stores and work as store managers for a day or 2...

    Pros

    Huge opportunities here thanks to continued growth, and not too many layers of management. Great benefits and competitive pay.

    Cons

    11,000+ stores means things are always moving. People who can't prioritize or need predictability won't dig this atmosphere.

    Pros

    Low price on many of the merchandise

    Cons

    This company only worry about their numbers, they don't care about their associate. SM and ASM worked as many hours as 50-60 hours a week because there is not enough hours for the hourly associates. They dont appreciate what you do. They expect you to do all the things on their list and yet there is no manpower. This company is a MICROMANAGEMENT and MEDIOCRE.

    Advice to Management

    Do not overload your salaried manager. Invest on security guard, and maintenance. Show that you care, treat your associate as human and not a data numbers
