Pros

Easy work, offer many things for customers

Cons

Employees are nearly never informed of changes or what products or sales are occurring so we're out of the loop.
Not really trained on things, just thrown into it and hope you pick it up

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hold one on ones or meetings to make sure everyone is on the same page.

    Pros

    Love the customers, and the fun atmosphere. Love setting new product. Love the employee discount (30%), and love the employees. Love the Halloween season (most days).

    Cons

    Little payroll to accomplish a laundry list of things that are top priority, all while assisting each and every customer that walks through the door. The no excuse attitude that leaves management and employees stressed and on edge, and the fear factor of job security. Moving things 2-3 times in one season because of poor communication wastes the precious payroll we do have, and secret shops are excessive, use the money you pay secret shoppers and give your employees a decent raise.

    Pros

    Great staff.
    Fun when you worked with the right people

    Cons

    long hours 60 to 80 hrs a week for managers
    NO pay, made more the year before in what was a better position ( Yeah what ever )
    NO time for your family, personal life for get it
    NO PAYROLL!!!!! loads of work to be done but with no payroll to do it
    upper managers never new what was going on. you had 4 or more people telling you what to do but it was something different for each one.
    customer service yeah ok, I would not like someone in my face every few feet pushing a cart or basket at me. Let the people shop!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    communicate with each other and find out what is truly going on.
    PAY YOUR PEOPLE more they would prob. care for their jobs more
    Dont worry about the money for your pockets at the end of the year
    give payroll during seasonal change overs so it can be done quicker
    care for your ASSOCIATES if it wasnt for their hard work and the customers you wouldnt be around!!!
