Very easygoing environment with good coworkers and management. Would be a great second job if someone needed extra money

    Pros

    Flexible hours if you having understanding management.
    Easy transferring to other job openings.

    Cons

    You have to lay down the law and guidelines for your hiring, otherwise they will ride you for as long as they possibly can. The pay is pretty horrid for the amount of work. Typical hourly job expectations and restrictions.

    Advice to Management

    Understand people have a life outside of work. Working here as a younger person that isn't in it for much more than a paycheck, it's hard to gain anything useful out of it.

  2. Poor corporate culture bleeding down to the store level

    Pros

    None. This chain needs a full-on over haul of how the hire, manage, and care for their most important employees....The little guys.

    Cons

    Ignorance abounds. A general attitude of "who cares," they're just part-time idiots that don't matter. Well, wake up the little guy is the guy that pays your payroll. Remember the little guy (staff/clerk) keeps the dollars coming in, so you can keep your job. The corporate culture is horrible and management is highly disrespectful to their lower level employees. Shameful really.

    Advice to Management

    Spend your money on internal and B2B training. Without your staff you'll be closing your doors and from what I experienced your management team and general corporate culture is myopic at best. Change your ways or the marketplace will change you by closing your doors one store at a time.
