Current Employee - Sales Specialist in Kansas City, KS

Pros

Good position keeps you busy with stocking inventory, online ordering with lots of great returning happy customers, some perks on online sales now and ICAP's.

Cons

Not really any at this store. Seems most employees know each other and are willing to help get a project completed if you have a problem.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

In store managers nice are very helpful keeping others informed on constant changes in store. Management in this store is on top of all projects going on. I feel that are doing a great job at Corbin Park Kansas store.

Recommends
Positive Outlook
No opinion of CEO
