    Pros

    Made good friends, that is about it.

    Cons

    For a customer that claims to have the best customer service they not care about their employees at all. Employees are very dispensable. Employees get in trouble numerous times a day for not having sales when there are no customers in the store.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to try to make their employees happy and their performance will be much better.

    Pros

    Living wages, benefits, quick promotion

    The people at the top are true believers in the company's focus on treating everyone well. They really care about the people who work under them. The pay is unbelievably great- and I work at the Rack. And the benefits package shows how the leaders at the very top care for their associates. In the company, they urge you to move up, from one position to the next so you're not stuck in one place for too long.

    Cons

    Favoritism, back-stabbing, unqualified people in management, overworked associates

    There is a price to be paid for all the above pros. One, it doesn't matter how hard you work, if you don't smile and suck up, you don't move up. This happens in every company, I know, but TRUST me when I say it happens at hyperspeed here. They are looking to fill vacancies and shift people from one position to the next just to say they promoted you. Sometimes they do it just to get rid of you if they have nothing to fire you for. This leads to the unqualified management- yeah, a person you trained in could be your manager soon.
    Lastly, overworked associates. All those promotions happen on the backs of the people behind the scenes. Those who do the real work, are asked to pick up the slack while Susie Q collects the accolades.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change for change's sake is not the way to run a business. Constantly shifting the standards and increasing the workload is wearing thin. If you wish to continue to be well regarded, make sure everyone is on the same page. CHECK IN WITH YOUR ASSOCIATES WHEN MAKING CHANGES THAT AFFECT THEIR JOBS.
