Pros

Benefits, discounts, internal development, training, and many advancements from within. With new CEO in place we are beginning to see a good future. Highly supportive of him. People person and speaks to everyone. He is just not all talk. Does what he says. Foss is the right guy.

Cons

Work Life Balance. Changing of 3 CEO in the last 6 years. No hunt and fishing in stores.

Advice to Management

Work life balance. People need to spend time with their families on Thanksgiving and Easter Sunday. Corporate office receive many perks but stores are left with pictures from how much fun they have in Denver.
Benefit perks are for Denver based. There needs to be funds for team building. We see pictures all the time of Denver having fun doing, races, runs and events.

    Pros

    Empolyees are amazing to work with.

    Cons

    Number and goals that you have to meet are kind of ridiculous. Had to have more than 40% of customers sign up for store discount card or you would get yelled at.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing.

    Pros

    Atmosphere is great. The employee discount is amazing.

    Cons

    Customers can scream and spit at you and the company will always take their side. Store Management is not always on the same page and some managers shouldn't be "managers" they lack the skill set to be an effective leader. Advancement is almost nonexistent.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your employees. Retail is not easy and finding great employees is hard. Find ways to motivate your employees. Define your return policy. There have been too many occasions when we follow the return policy but a customer gets upset and upper management takes back a non-returnable item. It makes the store level employees look like idiots.
