    Good place to work

    I worked at Everything But Water part-time

    Pros

    Laid back environment, great products. A good place to work if you have a good manager.

    Cons

    I worked at two different locations and there are inconsistent management styles.

  2.  

    Great people to work with. Company needs better communication throughout.

    I have been working at Everything But Water full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    HR has recently been added back, and she is AMAZING. Best out of all for sure. Most of the staff is fun, good to work with. Benefits are good. If you have a good manager that is willing to voice their/our needs, it's a great job, great growth opportunity, and compensation.

    Cons

    Corporate/store/department communication is BAD. Training is bad, but getting better. Managers have to be great to get good training. If you get a bad manager, you have no idea whats going on, no career opportunity, and stuck up attitude you have to deal with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    COMMUNICATE.

    I worked at Everything But Water full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    None that I can think of.

    Cons

    Management, lack of Payroll, no corporate support, upper Management absent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To start with corporate emails back and fourth between the store and anyone else in the company are available for the whole store to see. The context of the emails are extremely unprofessional and almost text messaging like. When you do use a professional context in your emails you'll be called out and called rude. Management training is nothing short of a joke. There is none. Key holders train assistant managers on duties. District Managers are extremely absent in stores and fail to respond to emails or phone calls in a timely manner and personally judge their importance even if it's an urgent matter in the store at that time.
    Only people that answer emails and/or phone calls in a timely manner is IT.
    The rules and procedures in the associate handbook are all in favor of the store managers and no one else. When store managers do not follow the handbook nothing is ever done about it and there is no recourse for them. If this company is truly trying to make their turn over rate better they need to allocate more hours in their payroll, provide training for managers outside of their home store, when concerns about the store are brought up to HR & the District Manager actions should be taken. If this company has any hope in surviving they need to start makin. Employees happy.

    It was a great job, as far a retail goes, for someone with little experience.

    I worked at Everything But Water part-time

    Pros

    There are sales contests to motivate the employees to do their best. There are several prizes that only the sales associates can win, since the store manager is working full time (which means they would most likely win). Some of the prizes even included a Wii with the Wii Fit game.

    Cons

    It is a high end bathing suit shop, so some of the people can be rude and demanding. I also think that the need to update their computer system as far as the register goes.

    Not so great, i have lengthy experience in the field of account payable, but the training was really bad.

    I have been working at Everything But Water full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    9-5 job with benefits, above minimum wage, friendly atmosphere,

    Cons

    Training was bad, no recognition for work performance, or meeting deadline in a proper manner when needed, training need's to be in 1 p.o.v. instead of 3, it will confuse the personal perks they have chosen to execute the task when first learning on how to full fill the lesson at hand to a new trainee.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better hand's on training will make a better employee.
