Pros

Great employee discount on some items, but that is about it. Nothing too special. When I worked for them there were no benefits offered to part time workers other than 401k

Cons

Lots of push from regional management to hit sales, profit and other numbers leading to short term focus and other pitfalls.

    Pros

    1. You may learn a thing or two.

    2. Depending on how you spin it, you can add some bullet points to your resume.

    Cons

    1. Pay

    2. Most of the people working there are rational and hoping to get out, but there are some 'true believers'.

    Advice to Management

    Groupthink: is a psychological phenomenon that occurs within groups of people, in which the desire for harmony in a decision-making group overrides a realistic appraisal of alternatives.


  2. My experience was moderate but my department wasn't typical and I have heard better things about other departments.

    Pros

    The work was easy and the people were very nice and flexible.

    Cons

    Monotonous work, no room for growth in the department, feedback is generally ignored from lower level employees.

    Advice to Management

    Make bonuses be performance based as opposed to by hours worked. Take suggestions from employees more seriously. Increase pay.
