Pros

Good health benefits and paid vacation. Can get a lot of product samples (good merchandise) for small dollar amounts. Somewhat of a flexible schedule for management.

Cons

Little to no room for advancement. It's a neccesity to work long hours and weekends to complete projects on time. Big buzz word is work/life balance, but the company has not made much advancement on that. Morale is low and stress if high. Dog eat dog atmosphere. Corporate office does not have enough staff to handle majority of the workloads.

Advice to Management

Bring on more staff to handle workloads so associates can achieve a better work/life balance. Delegate projects commensurate with employees experience. Create a structured training program so new hires and associates new to their particular assignments are not struggling to complete the work.

    Pros

    Very generous company who donates millions to charities and other important community events and local and national food banks.
    Great career advancement opportunities to all employees.
    Great atmosphere for outgoing people who enjoy working with public.
    Flexible scheduling.

    Cons

    Pay rates for lower level positions are generally lower than competition.
    High employee turnover rates.
    Mediocre communication from top management to bottom level employees.
    Variety of hours employees must work.

    Advice to Management

    Managers and executives in this company need to work on a communication method that allows all managers at store level to be on same page whether they are off for a day or on vacation. Try to develop a daily minutes sheet to allow communication to flow from one manager to the next.
