Pros

Great bonus program based on results.
Most executives treat you with respect and will try to help you at the store level.
Bigger company than you think with stores all around the country.

Cons

Lots to learn it can be overwhelming, normally takes a couple of years to understand.
Technology is outdated, trying to catch up fast.
Not always held to same standards from store to store can be upsetting.

Advice to Management

When managers change stores and things look like they suddenly are struggling dig in several stores look good on the surface but have not been run effectively for years. Takes some time to truly change the culture in a store. Don't reward stores that look good but underlying operations are terrible then next manager looks bad when trying to run operation to company expectations.

    Pros

    It's definitely a plus to work here if you like to shop here. The discount comes in handy.

    Cons

    Customer service is a nightmare. While the company is currently undergoing a lot of changes and may be different than when I worked there, there were many policies that customers were unhappy with or that didn't make sense. Customers took out their frustration on the cashiers.


  2. This store was a fun, but stressful enviornment to work in.

    Pros

    They have a great discount and you get a lot of ideas for crafts and projects. The break room was nice and the rules were agreeable.

    Cons

    The amount of glitter and other crafting supplies on my clothes and shoes did not make me happy. As well as the Christmas time cinnamon smell that didn't leave my nose the entire season I worked there. Also go backs and closing at the end of the night would take an extremely long time, because of the vast amount of small items that were in the wrong place.

    Advice to Management

    The management at my store needed some improvement. They seemed to be a little to easy on their favorites.
