    Pros

    10% discount after 6 months, good insurance benefits. Interesting job for whom wants to learn retail management, good training.

    Cons

    A lot of floor job (moving pallets, filling shelves more than 70% of the time), react and not plan, no opportunities to develop plans. Very short term focus from the store managers. A lor of overtime not paid (because on salary) till 12 hrs a day.

    Advice to Management

    Consider people turnover to review your store manager. Visit the store without inform the store manager before (people work with huge overtime to be ready for the walk). Speak with managers. Setup plans and give time to develop them.

    It was okay. Employees are nice but hard to get hours as a part-time worker. Would recommend for a student.

    Pros

    Fun, enjoyable atmosphere, was one of my first jobs and I really enjoyed the friendly coworkers as well as a strong union, that I thankfully never had to utilize

    Cons

    I was often told I had to work faster, even on my first days on the job, while management didn't give much of an idea of how to do so.
