    Pros

    Pay is not great but ok
    most of the staff is friendly

    Cons

    Managers walk around like they are gods including district managers.
    Too few employees to handle store at busiest times.
    Managers openly call you names and make you feel as if your not doing your job meanwhile they are just walking around doing nothing or in the office sitting down talking on cell phones or to each other like no work needs to be done
    No real training is given the only training really given to employees is either thru a video or by another employee when they are allowed to help management never helps new employees. Most of the time your just thrown in a told to deal with it

    Advice to Management

    Talk to your employees like they are people instead of payed slaves.
    Help train your employees instead of calling them stupid in front of customers.

    Pros

    Decent pay starting in management.
    Some flexibility in scheduling.
    Benefits and bonus potential.

    Cons

    No support from Area Manager and above.
    Typical retail.....Expect maximum output with bare minimum resources!
    Expected to hit daily promotional goals without using creativity....getting creative can get you fired there without any ligit reason or explanation from HR.
    CYA at all times!!!!
    High turnover.
    Upper management only notices those who are buddy buddy with them, not those who are the best at their job.

    Advice to Management

    You should be realistic and make sure that HR talks to an employee before letting them go!!! HR takes the word of upper management with no regard to the employees point of view. This results in the loss of a lot of high quality employees because of one terd of an Area Manager.
