Pros

Holiday Bonuses for all employees during Christmas depending on when hired, work around my school schedule, pay is nice, friends with a few employees, Sundays off and being able to do a lot on the floor.

Cons

Part timers due all the grunt work, hours cut off and on, hard to get a full time position, do not always promote employees already employed within company and too many projects not enough time.

Advice to Management

Could you please try to provide the part timers with a chance to get insurance since we do a lot of work just for being part time if not more than full timers it seems at times.

    Pros

    -Management will depend on your store, I had fair managers with a good sense of humor. -Very flexible, willing to work around classes or time off without penalty. -Will cross-train employees in the areas they think they could manage -Great co-workers, very willing to help if you don't know something.

    Cons

    -Training mainly consists of on-the-job training and some videos, you aren't taught much about anything outside your department unless you go figure it out. -You get a wide variety of customers, be prepared for attitudes to run the gamut as well. -Frame shop workers' sales were kept track of when I left, if you don't up-sell custom frames, you won't stay there long. -Cashiers have to work with a manual system, knowing what sales are on that week and applying the discounts as necessary, this can be a problem for back-up cashiers. -It's retail, you will have customers yelling at you or giving you an attitude because they've been piled-up in line for too long.

    Advice to Management

    Some time for actual training in all departments would help employees rapidly assist customers. Upgrade from the manual cashiering system, it's window dressing that is unnecessary.
