Pros

There are no pros for this company.

Cons

Only people without skills get to move up.
Does not take care of long term employees.

Advice to Management

If you have someone busting their butt, let them know they are doing a good job instead of telling them that they could do better. You get more flies with honey. Respect you employees.

    Pros

    Flexible Scheduling. Some great co-workers. Decent benefits with 401k. Great DM for DFW, he has a great motive to improve customer service across the area(however, not all of the SMs are on the same page).

    Cons

    SMs keeping unnecessary people(people with attendance and productivity issues) on staff. Payroll constantly being cut. Horrible executive decisions from Merchandising and Marketing teams. Constantly having to touch different tasks multiple times over and over again. Some Managers have been kept for to long, may be burnt out... Moving up from the Supervisor level will involve some politics, getting on a SMs' good side, and getting involved with events.

    Advice to Management

    Stop cutting retail store payroll and start cutting positions in the Corporate buildings, stores are already having a hard time with managing customers when there's a 3:10 customer:employee ratio in every store and you want us to do 10 times more with 10 times less payroll. Get a grip on decision making and stop dropping tons of task on the retail stores that are due during busy seasons like BTS, Holiday, BTB, etc...
