Best job I've ever had

Cashier/Stocking/Customer Service (Current Employee)
Coon Rapids, MN

ProsEveryone is very nice and friendly, management uses positive reinforcement and rewards to get the best out of every employee and always is open to advice or suggestions. Hours are very flexible, and employee discounts are pretty nice.
Overall it feels less like going to work with random people and more like a family, I love just about everyone I work with. They're awesome.

ConsNot enough hours to go around, and there's never enough sales/floor associates around later in the evening to help customers. Hourly wage could be better too, but it's retail.

Advice to Senior ManagementAlways be sure that every manager is telling new hires the same information. I've known a few that are still confused after a couple months on some really simple things.
Also please let sales/floor associates know that when they're stocking or doing returns, not to flex product into empty spots randomly. It's becoming a problem for those of us who do truck shift to put restocked product away when there's overstock on the wrong shelf.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
