Pros

Room for advancement if you work hard and produce the results they set for you. This sounds easy...but if you are put in a bad location it can be difficult. Home Office benefits are great! Company culture is good in theory. Good pay for Home Office associates.

Cons

Poor pay, especially for hourly associates in the stores. Poor management, almost throughout the company. Not associate centered at all! It's all about the numbers...and believe me you are just a number. Will do anything to have to not pay you what you are worth or based upon experience. Good old boys club for sure...if you don't know someone, or are a man, you probably won't be going anywhere. I personally had 7 supervisors in a two year period, and at one time I had 2 supervisor at the same time in different departments. I was marked down on my evaluation because I didn't progress the program. But, who could with that many supervisors, all changing direction each time I moved.

Advice to Management

Grow some balls and do what is right instead of always cowering down to your superiors. Push back some, if you know that it is the right thing to do. Treat people like you say you treat them. Quit retaliating against people who question authority. Have a little bit of consistency across the board. All in all, just have some morals!

    Pros

    Associates is about all, transferring out of state is easy

    Cons

    Does not follow Policies, Pay below standards, Management bad

    Advice to Management

    Need to communicate better, need to follow policies when it comes to communicating with employees especially in front of customers and other employees. Policy says no putting down or disrespecting an employee in front of others or yelling at them
