Pros

This is in the past: "Some of the reasons that the company had so many long serving associates is because of the fairness in the way it treats the associates and its customers. The change in leadership brought many changes in the organisation, while the promise to transform the company is a step in the right direction, very many experienced management associates were laid off, leaving a lack of management to help carry out this transformation.

Cons

Politics play a big part in your performance. Change in management means all your past contributions count for nothing in consideration for promotions or lay offs.

Advice to Management

Go down and listen to the working class of associates instead of listening to gatekeepers give nice and polished reports which is far from reality.

    Pros

    - Lots of changes, newness and excitement - CEO has alot of different ideas that could be great - Pay was good under old management, not sure how it compares now

    Cons

    - With new CEO and changes, layoffs of at least 1200 at the home office alone. - With the changes, lots of uncertainty - Layoffs of people because of old school mentality, if your not open and willing to do what they want, you will be let go - Benefits got worse during my 10 year career, hopefully that changes with new management

    Advice to Management

    Consider your people before just laying them all off, then posting positions that you could have put them in.

    Pros

    Fun place to work if your behind the scene. You can move into any department quickly. Easy to work around school. Part time benefits are good. They do try to make it a fun place to work. Lots of fun activities for employees. Meet some of my best friends working here. Best of all 30% off discount with coupons.

    Cons

    If you work in retail there is always going to be something to complain about. Most employees did. There is no way around it, managers will make you mad at one point. They will throw you under the bus to save their own hide. Caught several dept mangers lying and blaming others when something went wrong.

    Advice to Management

    I can not say much, most of the management was laid off after new pricing structure. Really shocked me some where there for 10 plus years.
