Pros

If you are a manager you get alot of bonuses, payroll, inventory, Instant Profit Sharing is good, starts at 2.5% of your salary if you work over 1000 hours and goes up 2.5% each year to a max of 15%, this compounds each year. Weekend pay for all employees is $2.50 extra an hour over base wage same goes for holidays, if they let you work weekends and holidays. Christmas bonus starts at $11 and goes up $22 every year to a max of $230 Full-time pay is maxed out around $12-13ish, general managers are about $15-16. This does not include management bonuses. Most managers will make about $45,000-55,000. Assistant General Managers are around $75,000-85,000, General Managers $120,000-150,000. Average full-time employee is about $35,000-40,000, Part-time pay is maxed out at $10/hr, forklift license gets you extra .50 an hour. Very flexible hours for part-time workers especially if you are in college or just want to work a few hours a week, not so much when you are full-time. Weekly paychecks are good.

Cons

Health insurance is costly here up to $5,000 gross a year and switching carriers is common. They do not match their 401k, hours can be irregular, vacation requests denied, writeups are common and for small infractions, managers will leave you with a mess to clean up, payroll is constantly being brought up, some lower management is egotistical, too many policies being implemented, store managers look for something to complain about. They want more work in less hours, with less people doing the work.

    Pros

    Profit sharing, increasing 2.5% each year up to 15% of salary. Many opportunities for advancement or job cvhanges. For many you must be willing to move.

    Cons

    Hourly wages are low compared to many other employers in the area. Health insurance benefits are lacking; they seem to increase faster than any form of compensation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To the corporate accounting management: Become team players, even outside of your office. Help to enforce changes that you would like to see and back up your staff.

    Pros

    The pay is really good compared to other similar jobs.
    The coworkers are great.
    IPS if you work enough is an added bonus.

    Cons

    Advancements can sometimes be limited to your willingness and ability to relocate to another store. Much harder to get a full time position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get better a picking managers for the company. Good workers are sometime discourage by not so perfect fit managers which leads to transfers.
