Okay for retail.

SALES CLERK (Current Employee)
Grand Ledge, MI

ProsI've found my department manager to be very accomodating of my schedule outside of work. It's a not very demanding to really do your job. I know it may not be the case in all locations, but my store has a real positive atmosphere and it seems like people actually enjoy their jobs. It seems to me that the people that work here actually enjoy what they do, helping out customers, finding solutions to problems and finding what the customer wants. The daily meetings really do help to keep everybody informed of what is happening and provide a great place to ask questions and find answers about daily things you may not have run into before. The management at my store is pretty much derived from former sales clerks, and they recognize what we do everyday.

ConsFirst, it's retail, so you have your run of the mill customer issues all the time. Of course, that can't really be helped. Some of the employees are cliquish and really, it seems mostly like a dead end job as there aren't really that many ways to move up the ladder. Also, the managers just tend to let you go unless you are doing something wrong instead of offering suggestions to make things better in general.

Advice to Senior ManagementMake sure you are taking employee feedback into account with new policies. When looking at what is being taken, also look at what is being given. Flexibility is key, and it helps keep the employees happy, especially with scheduling and recording time. More feedback is needed on job performance.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
