    Pros

    IPS (instant profit sharing) checks get each year if you work over 1000 hours, the Store and Department Managers are always helpful when you need help

    Just when changing departments, you have to start back at square one relearning again

    Pros

    I worked with a great group on people, I was able to learn a lot and help customers with their shopping needs.

    Cons

    They are not good at enforcing their policy and procedures, they pick and choose the ones that they want to follow and when they want to follow them.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to enforce company policy and procedures and lead by example by following them.

    Pros

    Always learning something new, descent pay for what you do, pretty good opportunities if you are willing to relocate

    Cons

    high stress, not enough time to do things, amount of freight is ridiculous, customer service suffers, benefits were awful!!!

    Advice to Management

    allow for more payroll so more people can be helping customers and putting stock away, better insurance benefits the cost is way to high, more incentives for going above and beyond, stop making people have to move states for a little promotion, good people are leaving because of this requirement

  7. A nice clean place to work and make friends

    Pros

    You will learn a lot about the department you work in. You will learn about different products which is great if you have a project at home and you know what products you need. You will also meet nice customers time to time. It is great working as a team. Everyone is very helpful to make sure every team member succeeds.

    Cons

    It is difficult working in a department you know little about and their products. Customers have a lot of questions at times and it can be challenging to constantly look for a team member to help. You also have a lot of training to do with the computer. It can be overwhelming learning all of the small details at the store.

    Hard work rewarded. Can advance quickly. One of the highest paying jobs in retail

    Restrictive scheduling for full timers and managers. Have to be willing to relocate if you want rapid advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Let managers have more control of scheduling. Ease up on payroll constraints.
