Pros

-Great coworkers, have made friends here
-Management is helpful and listens to feedback
-Schedule is flexible, they work with your availability
-Always something to do, never bored
-Never have to work too late, we close at 9:30pm and are usually out by 10:00
-Yearly raises, not huge increases in pay but a considerable amount
-Paid weekly
-Parties are thrown often for good customer feedback and reaching sales goals
-Promote from within the company

Cons

-Store manager is hardly there which is both good and bad. Employees prefer the assistant managers. They are much nicer/laid back.
-Not paid enough for the amount of work they expect of you
-Customers continuously wreck the store and ask for discounts on most merchandise
-Full time isn't really full time. I usually accumulate about 32-37 hours a week
-Part time employees come and go, people tend to not stick around
-Store manager and assistant managers do not communicate very well to one another
-Push store credit cards

Advice to Management

Make sure employees feel as comfortable with store managers as they do the assistant managers. I understand that someone of more authority is going to be a little more intimidating, but being belittled and talked down to by your employer is unacceptable.

    Pros

    There are a good amount of opportunities for growth with the company if you are a hard worker. The company is growing and has a good business model for future growth.

    Cons

    Working for a large corporation has its challenges. There is a very specific way to do things so there is little room for independent thinking. New ideas take a lot of time to put in place if they are accepted at all.

    Advice to Management

    Communication is a key. Managers lose the little things that are important for the well being of the associates. The associates are the driving force in the stores. Employees need to speak and have a good understanding of English otherwise trying to get things done is almost impossible.
