Pros

I Love my customers and the diversity they bring with the store selling just about every thing a family needs to have a good time together. Most the employees are easy to get along with and treat people with respect.

Cons

Upper manegmnet has no clue on whta makes there employees happy and I dont feel that they even care all the way up to the CEO. Its always about how to make more money and never about how to make our employees happy so that our customers are happy. Customers couldn't possible like to shop in a store where no one enjoys there job.

Advice to Management

Pay attention to your employees moral, quit taking from your employees with out giving even a little appreciation and mabye they will stick around longer and be happy. I love my job and my customers I hate how my fellow employees are treated.

    Pros

    Good work/life balance
    Fun environment
    Mostly good employees
    Excellent discount on some items
    Plenty of upward advancement opportunities if you're willing to work for it

    Cons

    Pay isn't the best, but retail usually isn't
    Some employees couldn't care less about the job and put forth zero effort
    Corporate headquarters is in Texas and they don't understand how serious a midwest ice storm is and won't let the store close even if it puts employees in danger.

    Advice to Management

    Higher pay would help retain more skilled employees
    Get rid of dead weight employees so you can hire better ones
