Pros

great discounts , a great part time employer.

Cons

not enough hour to support my family. made almost everyone part time.

Advice to Management

you should work in the store and listen to customers and see what they have to say. You should also work to execute changes in one store before making all stores change. going back and forth with projects is discouraging to employees.

    Pros

    It "used" to be a "caring, family" place to work

    Cons

    No hours, lots of recovery - for non-management

    Advice to Management

    No advice, "they" also feel the pain - blame it on the "New CEO" - Ron Johnson!

    Pros

    + customer oriented
    + takes good/bad reviews seriously
    + friendly environment
    + managers can be friendly& down-to-earth but know when to manage
    + 25% discount
    + the change [ppl may hate it now but things don't just happen overnight, I think they're going in the right direction]
    + good hours during the holidays
    + spirit week [reminds me of high school and I loved the spirit]
    + recognition
    + new dress code [not business attire anymore]
    + flexible schedule

    Cons

    - even if your department is clean, everyone has to stay til the store is clean
    - late nights
    - random nights where you will have to stay til 4am because the store will be inspected the next morning
    - favoritism
    - difficult to advance
    - so many employees so some hard workers aren't recognized
    - some managers are biased
    - cliques
    - employee drama
    - the change [i understand it takes a while but it's a pain in the ass to re-explain everything to customers]
    - very very little hours after holidays [full time went to part time, part time went to under pay or no hours at all]
    - not enough employees at closing. sometimes there would only be one person closing at Kids, and that's a pretty big department to close by yourself
    - kept pushing others to get ICAPs or online sales.
