    Pros

    Decent pay for management. Feeling of helping others. Great benefits package.

    Cons

    Unpaid overtime every week. Horrible pay for associates. It's hard to get people to work as hard as we expect them to for part time minimum wage. Bad communication between different departments in the company.

    Advice to Management

    Communication/organization between different departments needs work. Appropriate compensation for amount of work done.

    Pros

    Excellent benefits after six months but you have to fight for them and you might get your hours cut back to prevent you from your eligibility.

    Cons

    Management's main concern is profit and every employee knows it. Lots of politics and backbiting and closed-door stuff. Sadly there is a snitch system and if you say something negative about a supervisor or manager they will get told. If you work there adjust to low pay, keep your mouth shut, and keep your eyes open for other opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Supervise your supervisors and listen when a lot of employees make the same complaints about the same supervisors. Smoke usually means fire.
