Great company to work for, though not quite the company it could be

Specialty Sales Associate (Current Employee) Lancaster, PA

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 Senior 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

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
