Pros

Good benefits and ability to move within different departments of the store.

Cons

Hours can either be too much or too little. Schedule is very random. One day you're opening, the next you close. Takes a while to get a raise. Secret shoppers are annoying.

Advice to Management

Make sure to check up on the department managers. Some of them let the power go way in to their heads that they become lazy and sit down and get fat doing so.

    Pros

    It's employment until you can get something better.

    Cons

    Where do I start? For one, the "handbook" looks like it was put together by a fifth grader. Management only enforces rules at their whim, watch out they seem to be bi-polar! You get yelled at for something you may not have done.

    Advice to Management

    It's not all about you. It's ok to smile once in a while instead of the normal 'management scowl'.
