    Pros

    Interacting with customers on a daily basis. Able to move up in ranks if you are dedicated and a hard worker. Always busy and something to do.

    Cons

    Need more hours so employees needs can be met. Aisles are narrow and the bulk of the freight comes in one day.

    Advice to Management

    District managers should interact with PT and FT associates more. Both parties will benefit from their feedback. Run contests, add excitement to stores. And give a pat on the back for a job well done.


  7. I was Asst. Mgr. So I did everything the manager did I opened and closed and did deposits. Customer service

    Pros

    I liked the relatively laid back atmosphere that this particular store offered. The co-workers were very helpful and friendly. I only held a temporary position (remodeling) but definitely enjoyed my time there. Management (store and project managers) were also good to deal with.

    Cons

    None that really stood out during my stay. If I had worked here longer, my view on this matter would likely be more insightful.

    Pros

    The over time is time and a half and given out each week. Management is very keen on listening to employees feedback in pulling merchandise. The Break rooms are very relaxing and resourceful in dealing with a stressful day.

    Cons

    No A/c or Heat IN THE WAREHOUSE. no unexcused absences. Must consistently keep a close eye on merchandise pulled when operating the PIT equipment.

    Advice to Management

    Keep a closer eye on order fillars assignments.
