Okay place to work, but don't make a career out of it.

Pros

Great people to work with.
Management really listens to you and tries to help you.
Flexible scheduling and good hours.
Pay above minimum wage.

Cons

They are always moving items, so when members ask you where something is you lead them in the wrong direction.
There is too much stress on renewals, plus upgrades, and credit. There is no such thing as a cashier anymore it seems. We are all pretty much sales associates.

Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Decent benefits, great associates, decent pay for the work being done, free membership, work around schedule, profit sharing, employee stock purchase plan.

    Cons

    Profit sharing tends to be rare, management struggles due to the fact that they do not get support from the district/regional team, which tends to be passed down to the associates, "skeleton crews" is an often heard comment. Some of the upper management do not understand payroll, which can lead to low employee engagement. Tons of merchandising required, which is fine, but often becomes pointless as it moves the next day. Store technology is a huge opportunity... If this were any other company (Not a walmart corp) they would be following circuit city, radio shack, and best buy. Customer service is not a priority, which didnt bug me until I worked for another company and saw the difference.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We know it is a tough position at times and that you do not get much support from your district staff, but remember not to take frustrations out on employees. A main goal should be employee development.
