Pros

-some positions come with a bit of flexibility, in certain stores/cultures -opportunity for advancement if you work hard, great for college students and new high school grads -great customer first driven company -great benefits to full timers

Cons

-tough economic times limit options stores have for hours, salaries, etc. -doing more with less makes for distracted management that easily neglects solid communication with employees, to include proper reviews, and attention to their needs -"customer first" sometimes means employees' credit is on the line without due process -limited hours and often slow moves to full time make entry level, and even seasoned associates make it difficult to make a living -limited benefits to those living off of part time employment

Advice to Management

-more clear communication to employees; take care of ALL your people, really! -focus on lead generation/home services at every level, with real support to your lead generators, and give solid recognition to associates who generate leads -deliberately include your team in decision making process, create opportunities for for team members to use their diverse skills, creativity, and experience
