Pros

Good 401k.
Pay above most Retail

Cons

They hire people off the street instead of giving opportunity to existing Employees. It is hard to go from part time to full time. They have a interview process that requires them to have 3 top applicants to start a interview. This is a bs policy if you work there you will get a rejection email for positions apply. My managers would rather hire off the street then train you in a different department.

Advice to Management

Start promoting with in the company. More full time positions given to part timers.

    Pros

    The pay is the only thing keeping me here anymore. They start out well over minimum wage and pay the best in town without a degree. It's an awesome job for college kids.

    Cons

    There is no room for advancement. The HRM already has people in mind for a job and will only interview you to make you feel better. It is a total waste of time applying for anything worthwhile. Also, management is a joke. They sit in the office all day twiddling their thumbs instead of helping their employees. They disrespect employees and start more drama and pit people against each other for their own amusement. Corporate is a joke as well. They don't have the employees needs in mind whatsoever. They would rather push employees who aren't happy out of the store instead of trying to help them.

    Pros

    Rotating Shift can a blessing and a curse. The pay was descent and most of my coworkers were nice.

    Cons

    the late hours were horrible. Why a kitchen designer needed to be there other than to be floor coverage was absurb. The policies on harrassment were lax.

    Advice to Management

    be more of a team and help your employees grow instead of following upper management. Corporate has no clue what goes on day to day. It is up to you to fill them in and get things to change.
