It really depends on your store and how they manage it

Everything (Current Employee) Rossford, OH

ProsGreat company with a 25% employee discount. Its pretty laid back and if you work the floor, part of your job is talking with customers about their projects and helping them find what they need (I think its fun).

ConsThe discrepancies between stores is outrageous, and how they communicate with other stores and within their own management can be really, REALLY bad.

Advice to Senior ManagementAdvice to COMPANY: Have either an undercover employee who can monitor your management, or have your District Manager visits last a day instead of an hour. Inter-management communication at some of your stores is so bad, I am seriously considering leaving all together after almost 6 years working with great to awful store managers.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
