Pros

As with any retail job, experiences will vary from market to market within the same company...even store to store. But my overall experience from 2 different stores and 3 different store directors is that if you come to work to actually work instead of feeling entitled to a paycheck just for clocking in on time, then things will go well for you and you will have opportunities for advancement should you show the interest and take some initiative.

Cons

Pay for team members isn't very competitive and not merit-based whatsoever. Aside from nickel-and-dime incentives for certain jobs, pay for team members is based solely on how many hours you have worked, not what qualifications and experience you may bring when being hired how well you do your job or (see comment on advancement above for how to overcome this.)

Advice to Management

Give your store management the flexibility to compensate strong employees/potential hires better pay when appropriate. The turnover costs you would save far surpass the cost of losing strong team members we simply can't afford to hire and/or retain. Hire an Industrial Engineer to analyze this and she/he will present you with the same conclusion and actually quantify for you the amount of money you are currently throwing away on warm bodies.
