Pros

Customer Service is expected at a low bar, but if you love to help people it's a great place to wow customers! One of last companies that offers profit from non-merch sales! Run into a lot of creative professionals!

Cons

It's growing and still creating it's management identity. Lack of positive culture, a lot of former Home-Depot management (Those that were shed in HD's change.)

Advice to Management

Consistency, clear direction through HQ to Retail Associates and active managers (not passive)

    Pros

    Will match 401k, very flexible with scheduling, GREAT sick and PTO pay -it's based on how many hours you work and I only worked part time but earned almost 100 in a year. Started me at above minimum wage for cashier position and I moved up to assistant head cashier in about 9 months. Also there is small commission for warranties and memberships that you can sell to customers.

    Cons

    Corporate makes a lot of mistakes with sales tags, POGs, information, coupons, etc. Products are low quality so we got A LOT of returns and sometimes unhappy customers. A lot of pressure on the daily percentage goals for warranties and memberships.

    Pros

    There are no pros concerning this company.

    Cons

    Horrible company to work for. They could care less about the employees. Treat them horribly.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of yourselves. Eric is a joke.
