Growth possible, but achievement feels empty

MCA (Current Employee) Austin, TX

ProsYou could easily shoot up in this company if you are intelligent and hardworking, because those that work here are often not very strong competition.
If you are a good employee, they can be very flexible with hours.

ConsYou have virtually no control over the processes you are asked to oversee; the systems are slow and out-of-date, and you often feel completely unimportant because you are given an archaic, frustrating toolkit.
Full-time employment is nearly unheard of in non-sales, non-management roles.
Pay is awful, and getting above minimum wage is a difficult and rarely actualized pursuit.

Advice to Senior ManagementCorporate management needs to trim the fat, and focus more on dollars-per-square-foot in their stores so they look and feel less like a Big Lots and a Pay Less, and more like a Macy's and a Lowe's.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
