    Pros

    Reasonable pay for dept managers. Great co workers. Helping customers.

    Cons

    Poor choices on choosing new employees. Staff turnover is over 50% - thats 1 out of every 2 starters quit or are fired wthin 3 months of starting. No experienced leadership. Management takes the easy way out using irrational decision making - intimidation and playing favorites to run the place. If you are creative - have a brain or integrity they will soon find some irrational reason to write you up so that they can look good . Staff are driven to exhaustion with understaffing - huge freight deliveries- a computer system based back in the steam age!! The harder you work the more they want. Management have no people skills. Weekly meetings are ajoke with managers all competing to see who can kiss up to the store manager the most! Managers are uneducated - scared stiff of corp.- hopeless at problem solving. If you want to survive be the grey man- otherwise you will be out ! HR and scheduling are a joke. No planning - no organisation and no people skills - admin and clerical mistakes at store level are so common that nothing ever really gets done. Store managers can double their salary by achieving sales- so they drive staff un til they are sucked dry and leave often thru total exhuastion. Dont expect to be thanked for any hard work either. They only favorites are those who make big sales like flooring. They expect you toservice customers - deal with heavy freight deliveries all at the same time. Rules change every few days!! A typical shareholder driven corp

    Advice to Management

    Invest in the long term. Get rid of the uneducated middle management, respect the hardworker notg JUST the guy who manages to sell 10,000 grand of flooring. Have a look at why your company always lets the best people go. Explain to middle management how in the LONGER RUN- working with and coaching their people will benefit the co. in the longer run.
