Pros

Home Goods sells appealing home decor, kitchen, bed and bath items at 20 to 60% off department and specialty store prices. Employees get 10% discount. Customers generally pleasant and other staff generally pleasant.

Cons

All training is on-the-job with nothing in writing about equipment, procedures, or pricing. Schedule changes week by week. Pay just above minimum wage for entry-level workers. Merchandise changes frequently. If a price tag is missing, cashiers are expected to go find something similar, rather than someone "on the floor" doing a price check.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Give your cashiers a training checklist, handouts on procedures and policies, then at least one shift with someone at your side. Don't expect cashiers to do price checks.
