    Pros

    Fun customer relations, ensuring quality products, and enjoyable co-workers to work with are the only pro of this job.

    Cons

    The cons are overwhelming. Incompetent senior management and the inability to run a buisiness. Issues are not taken care of in a timely manner and raises are often forgot. Many people are treated unfairly and money is the only care.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I recommend senior management works extensively on their communication among employees, especially department heads. Things are often chaotic and employees have a very low morale.

    Pros

    20% discount
    You meet a lot of people who you will most likely continue to be friends with even though you don't work together on a daily basis.
    Fun enviroment

    Cons

    There is very poor communication starting all the way from the corporate level. It's like playing telephone when you were a kid. It starts out as one direction and then by the time it reaches the dept heads (which are the true workhorses of the stores) it's something completely different and makes absolutely no sense. There needs to be better uniformity throughout the company and in stores.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on your people. And I don't mean just the one's at corporate office, I mean the one's who are in your stores daily making things happen. Everybody has a responsibility here and it doesn't matter how small the job, it's still important. Don't forget that. Now that we are a public company i can only imagine how much more greedy this company may become and they will eventually lose sight of the one's who help earn them those numbers.
