Pros

I love the different people I work with, my managers are all awesome and it's great working in an environment where there isn't an air of competition. It's also great to be able to learn about all the different kinds of cookware tools that are out there to not only educate customers, but also yourself. The discount is also a great plus!

Cons

There's not always a great connection between the store and corporate level, sometimes I think that we aren't given realistic sales goals for the day. I also wish that sales associates were paid more.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Some more communication between managers about sales associates would be good, there were a few times where there were scheduling errors.

    This store (River Oaks) is not run well as it lacks cleanliness, order, and direction.

    Pros

    The variety of merchandise is nice.

    Cons

    The store is dirty. It isn't dusted often enough (if at all.) Various areas of the store are not cleaned well, including the coffee area. I do not recommend tasting any coffee products at the River Oaks location. The water you drink may have come from the bathroom sink and the milk frother may have been rinsed in the same sink. Assistant managers have bad attitudes and talk negatively about management among themselves and with staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Purchase proper cleaning supplies. Strengthen rapport among staff. Get control of scheduling. Don't clean anything in the bathroom. Don't get water for coffee machines from the bathroom. Don't rinse anything in the bathroom. Learn how to properly clean a bathroom. Get water from the kitchen; it's a kitchen. Have an updated staff contact list.
