    Pros

    In the beginning there was a very good quality of life, but that is slowly diminishing. Loyal and intelligent store managers.

    No chance for upward mobility unless you are In the good old boy group. Incompetent Regional Sales Directors that are promoted too early and are constantly micro managing their DSMs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Practice what you preach in regards to your values statements.

    Pros

    Cashiers start above minimum wage, promotions possible, fun atmosphere if you are in one of the newer stores, nice touchscreen registers

    Also depends on location but likely very high customer volumes, store managers low salary, assistants about 10 hourly, swing hours

    Corporate needs to address the condition of some stores and focus less on marginal profits
