Pros

Opportunity to work for one of the largest retailers in the world. Lots of room for career advancement and challenge if you can navigate the politics and culture.

Cons

Competitive to the point of cutthroat at times. Many people build their career/resume here but leave after a few years because they are burnt out.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue on the path of focusing on the customer but get rid of the leaders who reinforce the cutthroat politics vs focusing on performance and development of their teams.

    Pros

    Clean safe environment. Traveling to different stores so the variety is nice.
    Established hours. Able to learn as much as you desire, not afraid to train you.

    Cons

    Some special projects seem like a waste of time. As part of merchandising team communication sometime is a little slow. Planograms don't match stores.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As a merchandiser times I am not able to be creative. Why is there never enough time to do it right, but time to do it over?

    Pros

    Friendly people. Store level management is there to help and support there associates when they need it. Overall a good place to work.

    Cons

    Those at the SSC are to out of touch with what is going on in the stores. They need to listen to the associates more and take there suggestions seriously.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your associates at the store level. They are the ones driving the business and are seeing it first hand. They have the greatest expertise.
