fun place, but unrealistic goals

Assistant Manager (Current Employee)

Prosgreat staff throughout company, great employee discount, enjoyable experience overall

Consheavy, almost unrealistic demands sent down from HQ. recently began alot of store work involving construction and use of powertools. not the best ideas for some places staffed with a full female management team...i.e. lifting 40lb 5x5 wooden boards 15 feet in the air. payrate does not match work expectations. spent the better part of a decade with the company and get absolutely NO feedback on my career growth/opportunities. very disappointing.

Advice to Senior ManagementDont overlook instore talent!!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
