    I have been working at Orchard Supply Hardware full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The people I work with from Employees, Management, Vendors, and Customers
    Know the information that comes down from the corporate office, rather than being secretive
    The chance to move up in the Company
    New things happening to Orchard. The Shirt uniform Love it!! Early closing days on major holidays!! Employee discount with Orchard Coupons!! Meeting the Top Corporate Guys in person!! Town Hall meetings to get a better overview with what works at store level!!

    Cons

    Not so much with corporate guidelines, mostly store level...schedualing is awful, not knowing what you work in two days, (ie posting it friday for the week starting on sunday).
    Me as a woman working in a "man" store, the descrimination i get with customers, however, my guys always have my back!! The follow through with management when others are not cutting it! documentaion/paper trail is weak!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Follow through with associates
    Listen and Learn from your associates, we are the ones who deal with things head on!
    Kick off the ones who are not cutting it for the team, if you have one weak member it takes the rest of us to pick up his or her slack.
    Allow for timing and training...MORE HOURS!! for departments who are busy during their season!
    Give credit where credit is due...Be honest, however, be thankful as well to those who deserve it.
    Out of the 7 years with Orchard, I have to say this is the best time so far!!!
    I thank Management for being understanding and compassionate to ones needs!!
    I can say I love my Orchard Family!!!
