Pros

helping & satisfying customers needs so they will come back to shop

Cons

unqualified management who like to constantly verbally threaten associates

Advice to Management

please screen your ASM's more before promoting. Some seem to be on a "power trip", and constantly try to intimidate both male & female associates.

    Pros

    - On-site facilities are great - gym, dry cleaning, pharmacy, ATMs, cafeteria
    - They hire a lot of young people. Median age seems to be in the early 30s in non-executive-level positions
    - It can be a fun environment depending on the people you work with
    - You do get a lot of good experience
    - They always seem to be hiring new positions
    - Stock price has been going up!

    Cons

    - Very reactionary retail environment
    - Not many paid holidays so you have to take a vacation day on the Friday after Thanksgiving (or you can work Black Friday at the stores... which sounds like nightmare)
    - Vacation time is standard 2 weeks for first 5 years of employment
    - Very Blackberry-centered and you are expected to answer emails outside of working hours
    - Lots of meetings
    - There isn't a process for internal promotion

  2. Stay away from this company

    Pros

    you can be walking around doing nothing when its' not busy and no one will say anything to you about it thas bout it

    Cons

    Don't work for this company esp as a sales associate. they start everyone off with the lowest pay possible, they cut all new hires starting pay to less than $10. while the rest of your co workers who have been there for 4, 5 6,+ years are making $13, $14/hr or more for the same work you do. there are no raises after 90 days, only .20cent raises after a year, wow. they don't care about their new employees cause they know nothing about the store and workers are a dime a dozen lined upp wiling to work for nothing=pay them nothing. also you won't ever get on full time if you want it, wouldn't count on it, there are way more part timers than full timers. becasue of obama care new laws they dont' want you working more than 3o hrs for part timers. The benefits suxx, and so does the sick day time off and being late rules. you only get 4 hrs of sick time a month if your part time. it can be used unless you have 8hrs to count for a full day your scheduled and miss even as a part timer. This is one company to stay away from, not to mention all the supervisors and assistant managers sit around doing nothing.....
