    Cons

    When I started, the store was weeks away from opening. Most of the employees were promised full-time positions which only lasted a couple months. Throughout the course of my employment, my hours went from 40 a week to roughly 10. This happened on a large scale and it was attributed to budget cuts. There were times management wouldn't want to turn the air conditioning on to save money. Employees were also promised accessible, cheap insurance after a lenghty six months (this was said to be, in large, the way the company could keep such a promise). However, because everyone except management were considered part-time employees, many weren't qualified. I was, at the time, and could not afford it. I started as a cashier and was promoted after a few months. The workload doubled, but I enjoyed the freedoms. However, as sales dropped, all department schedules were routinely cut. We went from working three employees at a time to just one. Between stocking the shelves, preparing food, cleaning all the work areas, and helping customers, something usually suffered. Management increasingly became strict about overtime. I eventually quit because I was making just about as much as I was spending on gas to get to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend more time talking to employees and customers to find out what's working and what isn't. Try not to make promises you can't keep; employees understand there can be unforseen events but it's hard to be forgiving when promises routinely aren't kept. Try to find ways to be efficient without giving the employees more work than they can handle or the entire store tends to suffer.
