Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Get to meet people, sometimes with employees it can be a fun workplace, management is usually easy going or laid back but not always.

Cons

Customers are very disrespectful, pay isn't very good, alot is expected with little compensation, horrible work hours, work by yourself on third shift, and easy for robberies.

Advice to Management

Don't delegate so much responsibility onto your part-time employees such as cashiers when general management doesn't do anything but "paper-work"

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    The pay bonuses can be great. Interacting with co-workers and customers is enjoyable.

    Cons

    The hours, period. If you're in management, say bye bye to your personal life for the most part.

    Advice to Management

    Store support employees should be required to work as many crappy hours that managers get stuck working. And shift work too. That way they can see what it's really like in the stores and not be clueless to why managers are tired, cranky and worn out. Actually, they should be required to work in the stores as a csr for a month or so out of the year. It would help bring ideas to make a csrs job easier and more streamlined.

    I have been working at Thorntons (Kentucky) full-time

    Pros

    The company does pay managers well and does offer some great benefits, such as pay, vacation, esop, retirement.

    Cons

    Not enough balance of work and family time... the demands of the job keep being time consuming and it is hard to continually find reliable, motivated employees

    Advice to Management

    There has to be some change in how to staff the stores. The candidates for the basic positions require more than the candidates consider giving.
