Pros

Good people and interesting customers. Everyday is something different and a good team environment.

Cons

Its almost impossible to get fired here even if you are a terrible employee. Very low responsibility, after a while it becomes a pretty boring job. There is also not much room for moving upward unless you get a degree and want to do outside sales.

    Pros

    It's a steady job that is hard to get fired, there are days where you'll have 3-4 hours of downtime between customers, so if you stay caught up with your duties, the job isn't difficult.

    Cons

    There used to be a tv playing for customers until upper management axed it. Stores are open 7 days a week & only closed on the big holidays, New Years, Thanksgiving, Christmas. Now open until about 4 on 4th of July, Labor Day, Christmas Eve, you get the idea. Opening hours are being extended during "Super Sales" on friday & monday of sale untill 8, not very family friendly. Typically a skeleton crew is used at store, because that is all that SW allows, very strict on overtime.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Should work to impove employment moral, happy employees work harder. Cut back uneeded store hours.
