Pros

Diversity of coworkers
Promotes internally
Variety of internal programs to keep employees engaged

Cons

The good ole boy influence is very clear in smaller departments
Too many employees in the HQ, cramped work spaces
Surveys are given to employees to "vent" but no changes are made from survey results, instead departments are reprimanded for honesty.

Advice to Management

If you will not address the internal issues identified, stop asking employees to waste time on a lengthy, detailed survey.

    Pros

    Great opportunity to expand your knowledge of arts and crafts and manage people who live their hobby and craft.

    Cons

    Silly overstepping of corporate direction from 100 different directions, hard to maintain expectations when they change at the drop of a hat.

  2. Fun environment but understaffed.

    Pros

    If you're a person that loves craft, art, and the like and enjoy interacting with customers to find out about their projects and learn from them this is a good job.

    Cons

    Hours tend to fluctuate a lot which is not a job you should really depend on if you need a steady income.

    Advice to Management

    When it comes to closing shifts there should be more people closing than just 4, at least that's how it is at my location. Rushing to get everything together, while cleaning the store, and making sure the customers are also getting attended so that we can close on time.
