Pros

Great place to work if you are female. They tend to promote women more than men from what I saw over five years.
My experience there landed me a better paying job doing less work.
If you are in with your DM and not dumber than a rock you WILL get promoted.

Cons

They base all of the employees minus the manager hours by weekly sales. This means you can be cut at any time if sales are down for any reason. They do not want cashiers working more than 15 hours, but it happens all the time, Trucks are unloaded by piece, nothing comes on a pallet and it takes 1-3 hours to do each truck. You never really know when it will show up meaning the freight crew is on call all day for up to two days. Cashiers are also the stockers because there is never enough hours to run a freight crew unless you are in a very large store. They keep track of how many boxes you put up in a public forum. If you suck, everyone will know.

Advice to Management

Do not making Managers work 60 hours from November till after Christmas and then give them nothing for it. We use to get comp days but they got rid of those.

    Pros

    Plenty to do to keep you busy throughout the day.

    Cons

    It's a lot of work. Even though you are an operations manager, you are spending most of your time stocking shelves and unloading freight from trucks. Most of the time you are understaffed and it is just you and 1 other employee in the store.

    Advice to Management

    Change your price points and focus more on training and customer service.

    major policy breeches but they are overlooked because of the friendship between D.M. and store manager.

    All complaints should be investigated.
