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

    Pay for the area is okay. Benefits are great compared to other opportunities avaiable. A great job to work while you are going to college.

    Cons

    If you aren't full time you are scheduled 0-39 hours a week. You will have to work most weekends. Days off aren't usually back to back. If you are scheduled 40 hours you might have tuesday and thursday off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees fairly, understanding that thier work isn't thier life and that everyone has family beyond the orange box, and they will work harder for you.

    Pros

    The people on the front line dealing with customers are the best there is.

    Cons

    They can terminate you for any reason, or no reason by law. They allow people to have control over your job that should not be in position. They are unfair and they are not loyal to any long term people. They discourage a family atmosphere at work and genuine caring for the people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage the values that the founders of the company instilled in all the people they hired, take care of each other, do the right thing, are the core values they came up with, stick to them.
