    very nice company to work for, and they were very accommodating to my schedule as a student and with family issues

    Cons

    our store was very limited on hours at times, so there was not a constant amount of hours that you could count on. then other times there was an onslaught.

    Pros

    Customers were awesome. Location awesome. Coworkers and asst. manager were wonderful. Interesting and quality kitchen gadgets. Surrounding businesses were great.

    Cons

    No appreciation. Low pay. Disrespectful. Inconsiderate. Unreasonable. Spiteful. If not for the wonderful customers, sales associates and asst. manager this store would have went under years ago.

    Advice to Management

    Quit throwing the hard working employees under the bus. Do some actual real work and take some responsibility for your sinking ship and quit passing the blame. Get real!

    Pros

    good employee discount on top of all sale prices Good interaction with the main office. Freedom to run your store your way.

    Bad wages for the profit that is made in the store and online. Information on sales is hard to keep up with.

    Pros

    The discount on KitchenAid mixers is nice. I had some decent co-workers, and I enjoyed expanding my culinary knowledge.

    Cons

    The pay is terrible. Management is ridged and frowns on innovation. Management puts customer service and attentiveness to customer needs very low, and places an emphasis on how many SKUs an employee can stock in an hour as the yardstick of a employee productivity. Every location I have visited is flailing, yet the company will not modernize its marketing or processes.

    Advice to Management

    Evolve, get with the times, change your brand message, and put your customers first. Treat your employees better, and allow them to give your guests the attention they deserve.

    Pros

    They worked with my school schedule, easy dress code, not too busy, company likes to encourage good employee behavior

    Cons

    The system they use for their cash registers is old and slow, the store I was at had dial up and went down 3 different times in the 6 months that I worked there (this meant the credit card machines messed up too), company isn't the greatest about informing employees about big things going on (like stores opening and closing)
