Pros

Co-workers, they help pass the bad time with your Team Lead barking orders and pushing the RedCard, and the sometimes rude/nasty customers that come with this type of position.

Cons

Pushing the RedCard over and over...especially to the people who shop there often - then your demeaned in front of others by the important TL who just walks around, for not offering.
The business outlook for the Co. is high because they exploit all of the workers with low pay, hiring those who are on public assistance, food stamps etc., because they receive tax credits for these workers. Hiring recent college grads for management positions to oversee others with absolutely no experience is also creating bad service all around. Everyone is affected by this...including the consumer.

    Pros

    Contribue à votre développement. Ils s'efforcent vraiment de vous donner les outils pour réussir. Les cadres supérieurs sont tous très positifs et il est agréable de travailler avec eux.

    Helpful with your development. They try really hard to give you the tools to succeed. The people in the management level are all very positive and nice to work with.

    Cons

    C'est de la vente au détail, je veux dire, c'est évident. Une grande partie du temps est consacrée aux tâches monotones durant de longues périodes même au niveau de la direction. Parfois mentalement épuisant.

    Its retail, I mean its obvious. A lot of the time is spent doing monotonous tasks for long periods of time even at the management level. It can be mentally tiring.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pros

    Great starting salary ($50k+), tremendous growth potential -- as long as you're performing well, you should get your first raise after one year of employment & promotion after 18 months. They only promote from within which is great -- nationally recognized sales/business/retail training program.

    Cons

    Work weekends, some long hours, retail.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure you give feedback (positive & negative) on work performance. Ensure that first store position is compatible with the executives interests/personality.
