Pros

I work with a great group of people! Everyone is passionate about their work and works hard to better our internal department, our stores, and our company. My department really functions as a team; each member is more than willing to help out even when it falls outside the job description. I've never worked at a company where people care so much about the work they do and creating a better environment for our store associates and customers.

Cons

There hasn't been too much focus on career development or advancement. I get the feeling that this is changing, which is encouraging. I am eager to see how the approach changes for corporate employees.

Advice to Management

We often focus on rewarding great performing associates in our stores (as we should) but lets not forget that our corporate employees work equally as hard and also deserve recognition and incentives.

    Pros

    most general management is very pleasant, approachable, patient and sets a great sales example. the product has a positive reputation and is well known. associates do not work on commission so sales are not pushy. great teamwork in most environments.

    Cons

    the product is constantly changing and is not as reputable as in the past. communication between upper and lower levels of sales teams seems to die out; not all information is shared. it is very difficult to earn a pay raise even after several loyal years with the company.

    Advice to Management

    communication is key in a sales setting and teams benefit from more communication. more employee merit would be very beneficial to keeping quality associates with the company.
