Pros

You have the opportunity to offer customers the products that can change their lives for the better. You have the chance to build relationships with the folks you meet.

Cons

Deplorable senior management beginning at the Supervising Store Manager (SSM) level to the Divisional Vice President for region 32.
Zero direction from management above the store manager level, and intense ridicule, criticism, passive aggressiveness, and favoritism among the SSM, RSD, and DVP group.
Scapegoating of SSM responsibility on to store managers.
"Do as I say, not as I do." mentality.
I completely agree with individual's post from February 29, 2012 entitled "Roller Coaster".

Advice to Management

Take responsibility for you own actions. Do not wait until the very last minute and expect flawless execution of a initiative. Treat your employees with respect and recognize them when they are doing a good job, and guide them when they are in need of help.

    Pros

    Discounts! Employees get 30% off everything except hot buy items. this includes all sales and closed dated items. The environment can be stimulating and a lot of fun with the right demographic.

    Cons

    Can be exceptionally irritating in the wrong store, Employees do not recieve a percentage commission off of the P3 products they are encouraged to sell. I often times as an associate sell $1500 in product and make less than 5% of that in commission so that I can get more hours.
