Pros

Cant think of too many things, working in some IT departments seem to be ok

Cons

Hard to move up the company, Management do not do anything other than telling you to work at the next level and do not provide any help. Most of them just want to keep their job they have been holding their forever without any technical ability. Good if you can please your boss.

Advice to Management

Senior Managers who have been in the company forever needs to be shown the door

    Pros

    They give good Vacation Hours

    Decent wage

    Requesting a day is usually no problem

    They work around your schooling

    Cons

    Crappy health insurance that takes 2/3 of your check

    Stressful at times

    Everything depends on the people you work with, different people different store...

    Advice to Management

    Supervisors are usually the most stressed out, so they take it out on their associates.
    Managers are also usually laid back, but sometimes its for the worse...
    I had this one time that a friend was about to get jacked up by an angry customer, and EVERYONE was trying to call the manager and ....nothing...I walked to the front and he was texting on his phone.

    Wages should be increased if anything on lower level guys...

    I started out as a Lot associate and they gave me $8.35 ($8.00 being minimum), but since I wear an apron as well. No body cares what your job is currently, if you have an apron you ARE A SALES ASSOCIATE, and I would do receiving, cashier, and sales....

    Balance the pay for the lower guys...pay them a dollar more at least....

    Comparable Walmart salaries for employees that do so much more than just ringing up a customer.

    Pros

    Work schedule flexibility, good co workers, recognition for good work achieved

    Cons

    Poor salaries, Little to no lateral movement, little to no promotions, miniscule yearly raises (e.g ..10 to .30 cent raises)

    Advice to Management

    Performance and Salary reviews should be performed at least twice in a calendar year. Raises should be much greater than what they are. Raises should exceed annual inflation percentage rate. Compensate employees that do extremely well with your customer's. After all, they are the ones responsible for you meeting or exceeding sales quotas.
