Pros

The people who shop there, and An employee or two, Benefits.

Cons

The training videos you put all the time into completeing, are nonsense, depending on the store you work at, they aren't even done according to procedure.. Things are signed off that should have been done, but aren't, just to make the paperwork look good for the head office. When your manager has the corporate office in their pocket, there will be no justice.....

Advice to Management

Do a better check on your stores, employees, nd their satisfaction. Not just what your manager of the store, or the signed paperwork appears to look like. Actually hear the viable points of employees who are trying to better your store, by folowing procedures that even your store managers aren't.

    Pros

    Simple work, not a lot of stress, pays weekly. GM works around my college schedule. Asst Manager isn't salary.

    Cons

    The pay sucks majorly. No discounts to speak of, I mean really, every retail job I've had gave you at least 10-20%. When you have truck day (one day every week) your day is wasted because you are basically on call to show up at a different time each week for about 5 hours and it is fairly fast paced moderately hard work. You have to break down every box manually when stocking shelves, time consuming and NO BOX COMPACTOR SUCKS.

    Advice to Management

    Cashier pay is minimum wage which is to be expected, but Assistant Manager starts at $8/hr which is really not expected, it is a huge disappointment, that is 70 cents above minimum wage here, does not line up with the responsibilities. The Asst before me quit after one day. I'm sticking to it for a little while to see if this so-called manager meeting gets Asst any raises.

    Pros

    There are no pros to working at this company that I can see.

    Cons

    I was hired as a temp, worked one day and then was laid off. Managers hired way too many people. I did nothing wrong and I was not at fault. Also, the work is very strenuous and not worth the pay you are given. Based on rumors, managers are also treated poorly. Very unprofessional and not compassionate.

    Advice to Management

    You need to put your employees first, not your paycheck, and make sure the jobs are being done right. So much of my time was wasted with this company to have worked one day.
