    Great company values, inconsistent representation of these from upper management.

    Department Manager (Former Employee) Seattle, WA

    ProsGreat benefits. Genuine attempt to acquire good talent. Good employee discount. Some creative freedom in work.

    ConsPoor work life balance (never a set or consistent schedule). Lots of black out times for vacation. Unrealistic expectation of the amount of work needed to be accomplished in the time given.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAs a department manager, I felt valued by the store manager, but not by district management. While I was receiving strong performance reviews and annual increases in compensation. I was getting good feedback day to day on the quality of my work as well as the amount of work I was able to accomplish each day. Whenever the district team would come and evaluate the store, I would hear only that benchmarks were not being met and that standards were inadequate.
