Pros

Decent hours. Can move up if numbers are good.

Cons

Once an assistant manager or store manager there is very little upward movement. Pay is horrible also.

    Pros

    Opportunity to advance quickly if you are a star performer. Most coworkers are motivated and have a team atmosphere. Typically do not hire people right out of college. Many have a good work/life balance and lots of people have kids.

    Cons

    Merger with Depot just announced so future is uncertain but most likely there will be opportunities. Lack of training when you start depending on what department you are in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep taking care of your people - they are the most important asset

    Pros

    Benefits, fun environment, advancement opportunities.

    Cons

    It's retail, no set schedule. If you're not a seller you will have a tough time here.
