    Pros

    Decent promotion process if you contribute.

    Pay is slightly above average.

    Great people to work with and the enjoyment of seeing them develop.

    Cons

    Hourly employees are underpaid.

    Back and forth decisions on company policies.

    No communication from corporate.

    Not enough positive reinforcement.

    Poor work/life ratio.

    Advice to Management

    Invest a little more money in the part time associates and you would see much less turnover. Hiring and training new associates every two weeks does not let the management focus on other issues.

    Pros

    The company itself has some very neat and interesting products assortments which will make it very competitive in the future.

    Cons

    The Management was horrible. There was virtually no leadership or direction. The managers were tyrants and ruled through intimidation and fear. Would be a great place for unionization to come in and take over.

    Advice to Management

    District leadership needs to be more proactive in how associates are treated.
