    Pros

    Benefits were great
    Family Owned Company
    Pay was average
    Work life was good

    Cons

    Did not have much if any input as to who was hired as my assistant managers for the store. I only had one bad experience with this where my new assistant was not a fit and did not work and could not be motivated, but I know of several managers that have said that from day one they knew that their assistant was going to be trouble or was not going to last. Store managers need to be involved in the interview process.

    Pros

    - Flexible Scheduling
    - Employee Discount

    Cons

    - Poor, corrupt management that pick favorite employees
    - Labor intensive (I'm usually sweating, literally, as they schedule me to unload a complete semi by myself, and put the product out on shelves within 4 hours)
    - Poor scheduling methods means off time/no-show workers putting more strain on the ones that do show up with luck. The schedule changes at least three times a week
    - Customer Relations, Sales Associates are usually stuck taking care of jobs that management should be doing as they are too busy chatting with each other in the "locked room", playing on the computers, or smoking outside.
    - They hire anyone, expect to work with some people that just don't work.
    - Extremely poor pay, with no benefits
    - Talking about the company too fellow employees is frowned upon, you are not too discuss any wages, benefits, etc.
    - Store is "secretly" spruced up when district management comes to check-in on things, quietest employees are also schedule for the days they visit.

    Advice to Management

    Listen too the employees, give them raises, get out of your locked office and do your job. If I could find a way to contact corporate I would...
