    Pros

    Great company to work for with great benefits.

    Cons

    The schedule is not that great, but it's expected in retail.

    Advice to Management

    They should bring back department bonus program. It's unfair to have a department making all the numbers and working hard and never getting a bonus, due to other departments not doing their part.

    Pros

    part time benefits, decent wage, clean stores. reasonably flexible, 401k, vertical and horizontal movement, good corporate culture, most associates want to work and move up with the company.

    Cons

    competitive associates trying to make it to salary.in my 5 years i never went to a product knowledge seminar. management prefers employes that are grunts when it comes to stocking and cleaning far more than a true customer service oriented individual.

    Advice to Management

    adapt merchandise to local preferences. don't promote based on seniority, promote the best person. much more emphasis on product knowledge.

    Pros

    To have the ability to work with customers face to face and assist them with all their home improvement needs.

    Cons

    Time limitations to assist customers due to volume of customers who needed help in with product information and direction in making purchases.

    To be more effective in meeting costumer needs additional staffing is needed especially on weekends and holidays.
