    Pros

    Some of the best co-workers I've ever met were at TFM, we were like one big happy family till corporate/management became ridiculously strict.

    Cons

    Every TFM is different but...The main thing is the unbelievable stress level. It looks like a nice place but once you've been there a month you'll realize you'll be doing the work of 3 people. They don't hire enough workers because they can make more money that way. My last week working there they had me closing 2 departments all by myself (we were super short staffed because everybody was walking off the job). No raises, once you get $9 a hour that's what they call "topping out." It doesn't matter if you've been there for years or have kids to feed that's all you'll ever make (unless you move up to management). Management but mainly corporate is the problem. They have no idea what they are doing and come down on you with the hammer of Thor over there being a leaf (yes, literally a leaf) on the ground. Corporate is ridiculously stressful. They will scream at you in front of customers then turn around and have the nerve to tell you about how they have 3 houses ect. Like most companies it's profit over people. :(

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be reasonable, be respectful, don't be another wall-mart.
