    Pros

    Employees are nice, for the most part.

    Cons

    Cut payroll and make managers work 6-7 days to make up the difference. No life work balance.

    Advice to Management

    We are gabes, not Kohls. If you want to be like Kohls, we need to have more workers in the building than just the managers.

    Pros

    i liked the discount. you could usually talk to mngmt like a person

    Cons

    they treat their employees like they are less than a dog. the company empect you to do everything when they pay you slave wages. I take pride in a job well done. I would go home most evening feeling useless because I didn't have enough time to do a good job. their standards are set low. they have turnkeys which one in particular is a waste. she would push everyone out of the store at 8pm on a sunday when they were scheduled until 830 because she had plans. they hire people the do nothing but socialize and they expect everyone else to pick up the slack.

    Advice to Management

    make employees accountable.

    Pros

    You stay busy during your shift and some of the upper management is really nice.

    Cons

    Department managers are BEYOND rude to associates, there is seriously little to NO training for new employees, and there is ZERO consistency in every aspect of this store. By that I mean, the schedule is never posted the same day each week, you never know what your job is each time you come in, and you NEVER know whose in charge of what.

    Advice to Management

    Train the employees, hire managers that are COLLEGE EDUCATED, and be respectful to employees.

    Pros

    Gabe's is a very flexible job. You can move your schedule around as much as you need to. It is perfect for a teen looking for their first job.

    Cons

    Late nights because everyone has to stay until all the departments are finished. It is really annoying to do your job proficiently and then have to wait around because other people either haven't finished because they are lazy or because not enough staff is on the schedule.
    No opportunities to move up.

    Advice to Management

    Work on having department heads finishing their departments on time. If needed assign multiple crew members to each department. Don't make people stay hours past the time on their schedule. At least just put the time everyone will actually be getting out on the schedule.

    Pros

    Flexible-ish hours, organized breaks, and appropriate shift lengths. Learned about customer service and working with all different types of coworkers as well as the general population. Offer SOME benefits to full time employees. Overall decent place to work.

    Cons

    Frequent call offs, shift switches, confusion about scheduling. Also problems with gossiping/drama between coworkers.

    Advice to Management

    At our particular store location, upper management did not treat employees politely. Advice would be to be more fair and understanding.
