Pros

Lots of opportunity if you can play their game. Decent benefits, okay salary with bonus available. Store managers can make HUGE $$. They listen to their workers, it just takes a long tine to make the changes happen.

Cons

Less and less associate friendly since Sam and his wife died. 48 required hours, averaged 55 when I worked there. They have changed the system. Always short staffed, your new hires were turned into cashiers instead of your departments.

Advice to Management

Look at peoples strengths and place them into an area where they can show you what they can do, before putting them into an area they need to grow. Let them know you are putting them there to see if they are right for promotion. That gets people excited and will work harder for you. People do not understand why you move them into an area they are not proficient. Associates came crying to me all the time asking why their managers were punishing them! Work on making it a happy environment.

    Pros

    steady work and it is inside work during the winter, coworkers are generally friendly people, good job for a people person

    Cons

    sometimes difficult to get time off but depends on who your supervisor is, not the best place for advancement, weekend work is common in retail

    Pros

    some workers are great to work with, never be bored, always something needs done.

    Cons

    very little space to work with, a lot of stress, very poor hours always working different shifts, managers rarely help when problems arise with other workers, lack of leadership from immediate supervisors, lack of help with customers when needed, constant pulling of associates from other departments to registers and leaving some on their own for hours with no help.

    Advice to Management

    care about your employees, go into your departments that you run and help associates get caught up if needed, listen to your employees if there is a problem and not ignore it.
