    Pros

    Salary is market rate or above Depending on the division you work in, annual cash bonus can be solid Good employee discount

    Cons

    The norm is very poor management, all the way from the top down through upper, middle managers Morale is very low throughout company so the top talent cannot be retained Lots of politics and bureaucracy (it is retail afterall) where merit does not count much in most cases

    Advice to Management

    Really listen to your employees as many have good ideas to help move everything forward! Stop trying to only protect your territory and your lofty position. Everyone working for you will be much happier and more productive. Oh yes, get rid of all the dead weight that's lying around.

    Pros

    Great Training Gained Experience Employee Discount Quick response to application Dress Code

    Cons

    Inconsistent hours. You could be scheduled for a 4 hour shift, but sent home after a 3 hours shift. There is on-call, but only sometimes are you asked to stay. One week you could have 15 hours the next week you could have 9 hours. It really depends on how the store is doing. Unfortunately hours are based on seniority and availability, but even then hours are scarce.
