Pros

It's great to work for a progressive company that is involved in improving the communities throughout its supply chain.

Cons

Teams are continuously understaffed. Workload continues to rise, while team sizes remain static. Salary and compensation are at the low end of the industry. Very limited company holidays, and minimal vacation.

Advice to Management

Staffing and training need to be higher priorities. IT Professionals expect better healthcare and vacation packages.

    Used to be a great place to work but playbook has reduced everyone to robot status.

    Pros

    They are flexible if you need part time work to schedule around other parts of your life. They do offer the opportunity to purchase health care.

    Cons

    Low pay, no full time hours. You are warned about getting too close to 40 hours a week. They offer the opportunity to buy health care but with the low pay and less then full time hours that is about all you can afford in life. Many people I work with can't afford a car or have to get food assistance to live.

    Advice to Management

    Offer two tracks for employees. One for those only looking for a part time school job and another for a set of full time base or backbone employees that want to provide great customer service but are tired of struggling so much financially when they are working so hard.


  2. Fun but with no opportunity for growth.

    Pros

    Lots of free food/drinks, OK pay + tips, fun environment

    Cons

    Opportunity for growth is like winning the lottery in this company, they love to outside hire instead of looking within and if given the chance to "shine" in order to move up, they just use you to do all the dirty work I.E. transfer to problem stores, work outside of your availability, essentially do anything they want because they know you want to move up but will not give you a chance.

    Advice to Management

    Look within, don't allow strong partners to become disillusioned with the company because their store manager is more concerned with their own development instead of their partners.
