I worked at Earthbound Trading part-time for more than a year

Pros

*Great atmosphere
*Friendly store management
*50% discount

Cons

*Really low pay
*Unrealistic expectations for store goals
*Horrible ordering system

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Guys, let the manager order their own inventory! They know what sells and what is needed. This push system you introduced last year is not getting the job done.

    Great team inside stores... Unsatisfactory district manager!

    Pros

    Depending on store manager, very laid back atmosphere. Get to clock in 30 min before opening and it only takes 5 min to open (getting paid to use the bathroom NICE!). Also, the store always smells GREAT!

    Cons

    Unreasonable sales goals that will get you fired if you do not meet them even if there is no customer traffic... and even if no one in the store meets them. I have seen entire stores get fired even though they had some of the top ADS in the district.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The district managers need to focus on the units per transaction and the average dollars per sale NOT the final dollar amount. Also, the district managers need to go into the stores periodically so they can see that sales numbers are not being met because there will be 3 hour long periods without any traffic.

    A hectic, high pressure atmosphere with minimal guidance.

    Pros

    The variety of product and interesting clients make it enjoyable.

    Cons

    The hours are atrocious and the senior management professionals are not all that professional.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a more avid interest in your employee's lives. Take the time to be personal and more organized. this would deflate the high turnover.
