Pros

Strong employer with growth potential. Reasonably fair in how it treats its associates. The company has a strong focus on its customers, and capable management. Though in debt, the company manages the debt well.

Cons

Culture can be difficult for some. High performance expectations can mean pressure is placed on associates to perform. Like many retailers, the challenge is to do more with less.

    Pros

    A busy shift meaning the workday zooms by. Friendly co-workers Customers can be interesting

    Cons

    Very little training given yet you are expected to know everything. Seems like store mgrs are always rushed and frazzled. It is a very frenetic and sometimes emotionally draining environment. You get the feeling you are not valued as a person at times. Constant turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Provide better training for employees. Treat low end employees with some respect and you may increase morale a bit!


  2. Good place to work if you like crafts, and don't need to pay bills

    Pros

    Discounts are good. Hours are somewhat flexible.

    Cons

    Pay rate is the federal minimum. Hours get cut when sales are low with little to no notice. Pay raises are very small. While store managers are treated and paid well by the company all other employees are treated as disposable.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees with a little more respect
