Pros

Retail managers lead by example.
1 hour lunch.
Top to bottom the management is very human.

Cons

Pressure to sell warranties ad nauseum.
Perpetually shifting inventory into new configurations based on plan-o-grams created outside of the building with no exceptions possible. Occasionally making no sense for a particular location but no exceptions.

    Horrible and lazy management. Always passing the buck and never fixing problems.

    Pros

    A few decent people here and there. Work and home life pretty fair most of the time. That's about it

    Cons

    Pretty much everything, horrible pay, shitty raises, awful management from store and corporate levels. Breaks non existent, like pulling teeth to get your OWN paid vacation days.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employees run this store, maybe you should start listening to those people instead of doing nothing.

    Pros

    Hours for retail management is great, usually not over 45 hours.
    Other than that it pays the bills. The hours required is the biggest plus.

    Cons

    The company is very unprofessional. This includes upper management and HR. It is a company where unless you are the store manager the ASM will very seldom speak to you or the other employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Unload the upper management and dead weight lower management and bring in professional managers.
