Pros

Fun co-workers, Good training(at first), Nice merchandise, good store location, nice customers, great brand strategy

Cons

Incompetent managers, bad time management, confusing and tedious procedures, lack of continual growth/training, mediocre pay, negative competition and inner store politics

Advice to Management

Training and development should ALWAYS come first and continue. Preferences and partialities should be left outside and merit should be rewarded accompanied with experience, not just personal gain or manipulation

    Pros

    co-workers, contributing to customer's confidence, friendly competition.

    I want to be clear: The COMPANY is amazing- the things they believe in, their community out-reach, etc. However they drop the ball with upper management and not evaluating them properly from the viewpoint of assocaites and anyone under Store Managers.

    Cons

    pathetic pay for associates: go to a foodstore or bank and you'll make at least $2 more oer hour.
    No respect from upper management.
    Major favoritism- if they don't like you, they will force you out.
    They claim to care about a work-life balance, this is not the case. You are expected to drop everything and make changes in your day to accommodate their needs if someone calls out.

    Advice to Management

    Utilize AOS (associate opinion surveys) to better understand how staff is being treated from store managers and district managers. SMs and DMs unfortunately have the power to make your time on the job miserable- and miserable employees are not productive or profitable.

    Pros

    Low Employee Discount on regular priced items only, Gratis (free) new arrivals (sometimes), Flexible hours, can dress up semi-casual, scheduled pay hours show exact in deposit/check (no hours get deducted without your knowledge)

    Cons

    Pay is way too low, the sale of the brand/pushing the brand to customers may get overwhelming, no usage of coupons/gift cards by employees upon check-out, no pay raise or commission (even if the sale was executed by a single employee)

    Advice to Management

    Discuss with upper management/CEO for better pay, include more benefits, specifically for part-timers
