Pros

Fast pace, decent benefits for a retailer. Provides every other weekend off for management. Stores are fairly clean and do provide a safe working enviorment.

Cons

Not enough hours to staff floor. Customers can wait for up to fifteen mins to find any help. Checkout too long. Again, not enough staff. I'm sure this isn't true in all stores but in the one i was at the store managers expected the supervisors to do their jobs as well. Which put us behind. You have to lead by example, not from behind a desk or in an office. Not in retail.

Advice to Management

Lead by example. Set the standard for the store. Don't ask your staff to do what you yourself aren't willing to do. This earns respect, which is what will keep people dedicated to you and the store. Believe me its not the pay that keeps them there.
