    Pros

    it is really easy to get a job there. There really are not any other pros to working there than that.

    Cons

    It's a dead end with little chance of promotion, they make very few people full time employees, if one is not a full time employee you better be content with minimum wage or close to it, they offer no health benefits, The union that we have does nothing when an issue is brought to them, At my location during the winter there wasn't adequate heat and it was freezing in the entire store this was brought up to both management and the union and nothing was done. The scheduling is also a mess and many peoples preferences for scheduling are completely disregarded. Every time minimum wage increases they cut hours and employees end up taking home what they used to or less than before minimum wage increased. Everyone is expected to be on their feet for the duration of their shift and this includes Seniors and Pregnant women.

    Advice to Management

    Begin to care about your employees. This company says one of it's "Core Values" is talent investment, yet there is no chance to move up for most employees and you don't even act like you want them there paying them a substandard wage, and never giving raises of more than 25¢ an hour.

    Pros

    You would never be bored - all departments always needs extra help. Don't be surprised if your position changes sporadically within the company.

    Cons

    If you show interest in any other departments, they don't mind using you, but you will not be compensated for the additional responsibilities.

    Advice to Management

    They should give incentive to the ones that are willing to do way above the call of duty.
