    Pros

    This company is busy and a nice clean place to work. The company is always changing and growing. They work with you on your schedule, and are flexible.

    Cons

    They are under staffed a couple times a year, this puts pressure on employees to do double duty. This makes it hard to do all positions 100%.

    Advice to Management

    Customers come first, remember happy employees make happy customers. Cutting hours sometimes only benefits the company to a point, but can jeopardize the quality of service.

    Pros

    Everything always went smoothly between my coworkers and I I always received my scheduled hours Management was nice and was always there when I needed them

    Cons

    I couldn't get a transfer when I had to move because of time I had to take off for my final exams Break time wasn't enough to get a snack

    Advice to Management

    Add 5 minutes to break time Meet with potential transfers before turning down their requests, even the best employees have to take time off occasionally

    Pros

    Not many "pros". You're always able to learn different things if you take the initiative. The pay is good, but many long timers in the building make just as much as you, and do about 1/10 of what you do.

    Cons

    You don't get to choose the store you're sent to. All of the 'good' stores are given to people that aren't great at their job because they basically run themselves. You do anything and everything in the store in the lower sales stores. including cleaning bathrooms, pushing carts, stocking shelves, running register (because there's really no one else to do those things as hours are so tight) on top of the regular management activities you need to do. You work every holiday and weekend (retail) and definitely work more than the required 45 hours a week.
