    Pros

    When you work in the retail environment and you have a good boss they are great on working with you on your schedule for school.

    Cons

    They now start the wages at minimum wage, and if you're young and tech aware, some of the things that corporate does don't make sense.

    Advice to Management

    Management at the stores are good. It's corporate that needs to get its act together and bring things into the 21st century.


  2. Overlooked.

    Pros

    Closed on X-mass. That is about it. I don't have anymore pros working for this employer just trying to make 20 words for this.

    Cons

    management promotes friends not the people that been there for a while. Management are lazy they will sit in the office and eat or play on there phones even run a home business from there phone. The only time they do anything is when the DM is in and then watch out b\c everyone runs around like they are crazy. And then all six managers tell you what to do over the radio in your ear like 100X a day like you don't know. And they cut hours all the time and hire more people but they will have all the managers there at once. And won't give full time even if you been there for 3 years. And watch out when a Corporate person comes in for a visit, they will have you on your hands and knees scrubbing everything down. And not to mention the crazy hours you work like if you are schedule from 4 to 10 you don't get to leave at 10 no you stay and finish all the stuff that was not done earlier that day, and then when you think your done management will start finding other things to do. It's a horrible place to work. They start you out at minimum wage and tell you, you that they bonus all the time that is a lie they hardly bonus and the raises you get are like 10 cents. And if you sell a PPP And you get paid for it and then the customer returns it they take it back out of your check.And Customers don't respect you. The heath benefits sucks.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attentions to who is really doing the work, and stop hiring your friends and then promoting them. Give full time to people who deserve it.
