Pros

I was able to work with some wonderful people
Ok work enviroment

Cons

Terrible upper management

Awful pay

Have seen many part-time associates receive less than 10 hours a week because of labor projections

Unrealistic goals from upper management makes it hard for the sales employees to meet goals when we are unable to keep the store staffed and have people actually working.

Advice to Management

Treat your employees like people instead of numbers.

Make intelligent marketing decisions

    Pros

    Some of the people I worked with

    Cons

    As a salaried employee being forced to work 74 hours a week with no reward or incentive and only being paid for 40 of those hours. To much micromanagement from the head office in amarillo. No help whatsoever to complete training to do job properly.

    Advice to Management

    I have no advice for a company that can not treat it's employees properly.

  2. Worst job I have ever had!

    Pros

    The product was the only plus side to this job (Hastings sold interesting and fun items).

    Cons

    horrible work environment, poor pay, management that ran the store like a high school cafeteria, run-down establishment, minimal discount(s), and completely unprofessional

    Advice to Management

    Remove management that is related to employees and stop with all of the add-on sales.
