Pros

Great management, awesome employee discount, wonderful product to work with, excellent training. Overall a great place for an entry level position

Cons

The only con I can think of is that you have to work weekends, holidays, etc. But that is the nature of the beast in retail.

Advice to Management

Keep up the great work!

    Pros

    very family oriented, stress good work/life balance-pay is good and comparable to other companies,

    Cons

    Lean staffing means your responsibilities sometimes did not match your skill set yet expectation was to stretch your skill set to the maximum potential

    Advice to Management

    if you're running company with a lean staff, remember the teams that are left can suffer from feeling overworked, lack of direction, and feeling that there is no room for promotion or growth within the department

    Pros

    The discount and the benefits, i.e. health and vacation time. Fun product, some reasonably priced.

    Cons

    There is zero work life balance. Expectations and targets are high which equates to low or no bonus for the store manager. New visual merchandising guidelines to make stores more consistent means we have no creative freedom, which limits the use of some people's talents. Upper management preaches and preaches about goals and expectations, but I hardly saw my regional manager for store visits. I hadn't had an official store visit summary in over two years, until my numbers fell below "expectations." Zero positive feedback from regional.

    Advice to Management

    Take a closer look at what your field managers are doing, coming for a store visit late and then spending the majority of time in the office is not a store visit. Give credit for a job well done. Stop having a meeting, ad set, floor move, markdown report every Sunday so a manager can actually get a Sunday off every now and again.
