Pros

Good pay, very good benefits, exciting team dynamics

Cons

Super long hours, lack of care from upper management, abuse of powers by some management and lack of compassion and over the last several years horrible customer service

Advice to Management

Need to focus on what some of these store managers and departments heads are doing to their people. Also even if someone is a past employee remember they are your biggest critic so when the call corporate do not treat them as if they are garbage

  1. Benefits are great but only if they allow you to have them.

    Pros

    Easy money --paid weekly
    Simple job, but hard work
    Flexible scheduling
    Good first job
    Career opportunities
    Promote from within
    Frequent evaluations and raises

    Cons

    Benefits only available if you're full time, and it could take years for that
    Easily overworked
    Most associates get their hours by begging
    Overhiring of minors
    Retail management is scared of corporate and won't stand up when they disagree
    Corporate often visits and attempts to fix problems that dont exist

    Advice to Management

    When your associates are trying to pay bills and are forced to hang notes near the time clock begging for shifts, don't go hire three new associates-- all of which are minors and cannot work more than a few hours.
    When corporate visits, listen to associates about what store issues are rather than just assuming and attempting to fix something that isn't the issue.
    Be honest with associates, if you dont want us to be full-time, say so, so we can find other work, rather than drag us along with "soon"'s, also you are a multibillion dollar company, do not tell us you can't afford promotions. If you don't want to offer benefits, don't take pride in having them to offer!
