Pros

good company in it's glory days. Still great place to work and good environment. Compensation was moderate to average. Nice company perks (discounts).

Cons

lots of change, almost overwhelming. Company is struggling and initiating huge amounts of change. somewhat chaotic due to changes and not everyone being on same page.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Change is tough, but is necessary. Vision with passion = success!

    Pros

    Aggressively searches for new talent. Career advancement opportunities are available.

    If upper management hasn't recognized your abilities you can get lost and forgotten when opportunities come.

    Monitor upper management and incentive them to mentor employee's.

    Pros

    very flexible hours, great discount, wonderful staff they are like a second family, great mix of people that come through the store.

    Cons

    communication from head quarters needs to improve.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The way the advertisements are through out the week. It would be far less confusing for customers and associates if the sales went like they used to....Start a sale on Sunday and run it through Saturday. Doorbusters are fine once in awhile but its pretty crazy that we have the same doorbusters pretty much every weekend....it becomes nothing special to bring the customer in.
