Current Employee - Head Cashier in Los Angeles, CA

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 ManagementAdvice

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

Doesn't Recommend
Positive Outlook
Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Location is nice, finally got rid of the horrid head of HR, major PRO, some great co-workers - those that aren't stabbing you in the back, decent benefits.

    Cons

    Executive team is a joke. It's unfortunate the power that be isn't smart enough to realize he's simply a cash cow for the other powers that be. Very sad.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hey... how did that miscalculated overpayment of 401K match work for you? Great job to the mental giant that got passed
