No opinion of CEO

Pros

Had good associates. If you are p/t or f/t(hourly)they will typically work around your schedule.Good stepping stone first job for customer service.

Cons

NO employee discount ( got taken away for alleged 'abuse'), Management not paid enough for the work required, no training store so people were taught to do things differently (and was not often by the book), can be transferred within 50 mile radius of store closest to your home(and most times it was done), DM definitely showed favoritism and only heard one side of most stories, overall VERY unprofessional environment.

Advice to Management

Be professional-you cannot reasonably expect to come into a store in a horrible mood yelling and screaming and expect 100% happy people and wonderful customer service. Also, before making life-changing decisions about employees, get the whole story! Last...there is a difference between CONstructive and DEstructive criticism-learn the difference!

    Allocate hours to stores so that tasks could get finished at the time that corporate wants it done. Allow some independence on the store level, DM's should not try to micromanage

    Pros

    Fun atmosphere Flexible hours Great benefits (30% discount!)

    Cons

    Retail (be prepared to deal with stupid people a lot) Ladders (only bad if you have a fear of heights) LOTS OF BALLOONS!!!!

    Advice to Management

    Perhaps lighten up on some policies regarding customers, I feel as though we tend to be too pushy trying to make them comfortable.
