    Pros

    Good pay, especially for retail. Opportunity to move up. Does promote within. HR is awesome and really stands as a middle ground for the employees and the managers. Great environment. Always giving back to the employees. Listening and asking associates what they need, want, or can improve upon. Good benefits, hour lunches, vacation, paid holidays, generous sick time. Bonuses every quarter.

    Cons

    The work can be stressful and strenuous at times. The stores aren't always adequately staffed, causing coverage issues in departments. Management sometimes doesn't understand these issues, or others. Computer systems are old, broken, and slow. You have to access three different systems just to do one sale.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the associates more. Don't come across as rude or degrading. You aren't always right. Keep departments adequately staffed! Other than that, keep up the good work.

    Pros

    Good company and team to work for

    Cons

    I didn't like the hours. I would rather work set hours, either morning or afternoons but not both, and not back to back. Management would change schedule without letting you know about it. Also had issues with my allergies when working around the lawn and insect poisons in the Garden Department .

    Advice to Management

    Basically doing a great job. A nice place to work for.

  3. I love to help y provide an excellent customer service to our coustomers.
