Pros

If you are looking for a company that gives pretty much anyone an opportunity to build a career, look no more. They are selective when hiring, but once in the door just show you are dedicated and you can make it all the way to the top.

Benefits are worthwhile and competitive with other similar employers.

Cons

It takes some a very long time to get to full time status. Is you struggle financially and might have to get a second job, forget about working here; the new OASIS scheduling system makes it impossible to do just that. From one week to the next, your schedule will NEVER be the same, even the hours of the day in which you work. Try telling them you can only work certain days, or times of the day and your hours will be reduced drastically. I've seen this happen to numerous employees at numerous locations.

Raises consist of $0.10 -$0.25 increases every 6mo to a year. It is pathetic and will take you 15-25 years to reach your maximum rate of pay.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management needs to take a stand and stop working for Chinese overtime. Your misery is coming down on the associates that work under you.

Corporate - try working in a store to understand the effects of the decisions made. And your Associate Voice Survey does' thrive us a chance to "voice" a detailed opinion on any of the real issues at the store level.
