    Pros

    Weekly paycheck, cheap health coverage. Interesting work day.

    Cons

    They will lie to you about the promotion "schedule" and the hours you will be working, telling you the reviews you read online are from disgruntled former employees - but there's a reason so many reviews say the same thing over and over again. DMs like to play favorites and blame everything on "someone else". Unfortunate when you're the someone else! But, at least I won the unemployment dispute and proved the policies they claimed to fire me over didn't actually exist.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There's a reason you have high turnover in your Marketing Mgr positions - look to your current GMs and DMs for the answer to that problem.

    Pros

    This company offers great chances to move up in the company. They treat their employees great. Cashiers earn bonuses every quarter for ensuring that we as a team offer great experiences for our customers which is shown through mystery shops and also ensuring we keep a hold on loss prevention. You get rewarded for your hard work and efforts on the job.

    Cons

    I don't have any cons about this company.

    I worked at Love's Country Stores full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    They do reward hard work eventually, just have to stay with it.

    Mostly great people I worked with.

    Company is getting bigger and stronger.

    Cons

    Pay is average but the potential is great. Too bad you have to be there for seven years before you get money!! Really poor work to home life, as a manager you are expected to be on call 24/7 and spent hundreds of 18 plus hour days to make things run.

    You are staffed with the absolute minimum of personnel so if someone quits, is fired, or doesn't show, then you are screwed!

    Don't think this is bad company, it's not. They just have a lot of problems to workout and they are growing so fast and making so much money they don't care to change and unfortunately, their store level people suffer for it.

    Also they promised a last pay check and I never got it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure you management team at the store level is happier, they are the ones who make this place run and succeed. Pay increase is always good but honestly you just need to stop overworking your employees.

    Please hire and work more than the bare minimum. You have the money to do it and you employees would stay longer and be much more productive while they are there.

    Pros

    Stable growing company with growth on the horizon.

    Cons

    unprofessional, unethical and thrive on intimidation and lack genuine concern for employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Empower and respect your employees to develop original ideas. Reward your employees both monetarily and with positive reinforcement. As a person reading this you may find it hard to believe what I am about to tell you. I find it hard to believe and I lived it. I have never met a company, the 9th largest in the nation, that does everything wrong. It is truly sad. They make so much money that it blinds them to input from anyone who has a suggestion for improvement . You either go along cowering and kissing up or you are terminated. Anyone that I would consider a type " A" manager doesn't last. If you can is butt and take abuse while stroking the egos of superiors you will be fine. They do pay below industry average and you can live life as a minion then it is the place for you. If you are a self starter with original thoughts and ideas this is not the place for you. Good Luck

    Pros

    You get paid weekly, which is great. You get to see and meet a lot of great and different customers!

    Cons

    Poorly trained! Poor management. If they failed to train you in an area they will try to pin it in you and get you in trouble for it. Management rather be buddy buddy than telling employees what they need to do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train employees better.
