    Pros

    Great pay. Lots of room for advancement.

    Cons

    Hard, physical work. Extremely long hours. Hit and miss management.

    Advice to Management

    Well-educated managers will not work for quasi-illiterate district and regional managers.

    Pros

    Great retirement plans and stock options. Floor teams/workers are decent.

    Cons

    Constant cutting of work hours; constanct change of management and policy; company is currently "demoting" managers to a new/different "management" position with less pay; price of goods going up because they stopped accepting various major prescription plans; poor upper management; virtually no advancement opportunity--you're basically stuck at your position; favoritism by store manager

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your employees, instead of constantly changing policy, having a hire-and-fire mentality, and close down on holidays
