    Pros

    Every minute which you work there is paid. Interesting items for selling, dynamic working environment.

    Cons

    Very bad store management - he does not care for employees at all. Low payment.

  2. Once you learn how the seasons change you can stay on track and enjoy the job.

    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    Technology is outdated, trying to catch up fast.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.
