    Pros

    Back in the Davis Brother Era....it was wonderful place....family oriented and just a joy to come to work. There are no pro's today! Except for the customers.

    Cons

    Oh where to start....The employees are treated like cattle....No one in the company knows t the other is doing. Store directors say one thing, Specialist another and DM's another, and it goes from there. But the ones that catch the heat of course are the Dept. managers who are expected to know all and do all AND serve the customers who should come first....Impossible things in Impossible time frames.Once a task is complete, a new idea is sprung and put into place and then just changed again, which oft times doesn't come from THE TOP. Come on WD, Mr. Appel, PLEASE practice what you've been preaching, Go into your stores meet with only the DEPT. heads without the store directors. Learn the TRUTH behind the scenes...fix that and then....only then WD will be successful.....Trust and Loyalty begins with me.....does it have to end with me to? Why can't someone have our backs?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get inside your stores realize whats going on store level...re-evaluate your store directors....pretty sure you will find that's your biggest problem...appreciate the people that really run your stores...your Dept Manager, they are your biggest fans and the ones your customers know...Start at store 199....

    Pros

    It's probably the easiest job I will ever have. Most if not all associates have a great personality and that will make the job experience better, especially for new associates.

    Cons

    Low pay, better opportunities elsewhere, may feel stuck if a long term employee. Customers might tend to be irritating, though not all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to foster excellence everyday and reward lower managers with higher pay rates, recognize those that over achieve because they might find better opportunities eventually.
