Pros

Growing company with good customer base. Staffing levels let you learn all aspects of store operations. Corporate policy stresses customer service. Full time positions offer reasonably good benefits for retail trade.

Cons

Poor supply chain, IT system a nightmare. Hight turnover of managers. Little chance for advancement with company, district managers prefer to higher asst. managers and managers from outside of company. Budgets watched closely your hours will be cut if sales are not met. HR has policy of "Salary Matrix" that limits pay raises for long term employees. Very demanding work environment. Managers placing margin ahead of sales and customer service, have no problem selling defective or poor quality merchandise to customers and not standing behind the product.

Advice to Management

Your employees can make or break sales, great to brag about how many new stores you opened last week at the same time being told your hours are being cut because you aren't making store sales. When your distribution centers can't supply the products to the stores you can't sell empty shelf space. When your managers won't price match your competitors because they will miss their margin and not get their year end bonus you will loose customers. Repackaging defective products and reselling them looses customers. Change policy with suppliers demanding that they give full store credit for defective products rather than letting stores take loss. Look at the numbers of unfilled manager positions nationwide, don't you realize that your employees are jumping ship for some reason?

    Pros

    Good opportunities for advancement. Great communication and training.

    Cons

    Not the fault of TSC, but it is a retail environment and hours can be tough for both management and team depednding on how good or slow business is.

    Advice to Management

    Continue what you're doing, you've got the right idea! Make sure that your managers are on a level playing field salary-wise.
