    Pros

    It is an easy job that doesn't require much previous experience. They may pay you over what someone else working in a similar job gets paid.

    Cons

    -Catty staff; they will make fun of you behind your back and start rumors about you
    -a person in management that was best friends with a same-level associate and took her word over physical evidence to the contrary in an employee dispute
    -over-involved management
    -unsupportive management
    -"clique-ish" staff; like high school all over again

    Advice to Management

    Make sure all of your staff are being listened to and heard. Make sure you do not have any conflicts of interest when you are resolving a dispute between employees. Make the individuals working for you feel cared about and necessary.

    Pros

    If you don't have a personal life I highly reccomend working here. The benefits are decent such as stock discount.

    Cons

    Management doesn't train or coach you to improve your skills. My manager is to friendly with the Associates and doesn't get rid of employees who slack off. The workplace morale is very low, and management doesn't help you when you want to advance in the company.

    Advice to Management

    Managers don't listen to the associate ideas, they also usually take all the credit. Managers also have favorite associates who get away with a lot more the certain employees.
