    Pros

    The work was fast paced as a material handler so time flew by quickly. HR was very understanding and reasonable. They also held fun activities for employees every so often.

    Cons

    when work was light, we were sent home early so it kind of messed with our pay. But I guess that can be said for any warehouse nowadays

    Pros

    Loved the employee discount, and I loved helping customers come up with crafty ideas. I especially loved redecorating and stocking for new seasons and holidays!

    Cons

    The job can get a little boring on the slower days. Sure it's nice to have a break from a crazy rush of customers, but sometimes if the day was running a little slow, it was easy to get bored and seem stuck in a routine.

    Advice to Management

    None, they were very good!

    Pros

    I loved the position I had. I loved working around the craft materials, and enjoyed helping customers with their projects

    Cons

    My position was restructured by the company into one I was unable to do. So after eight years , I was essentially forced into another position that I was not qualified for, given a pay cut, and no training or support. When I asked for help , I was told its your job , just do it.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to be more supportive of its employees. Also, they need to stop setting one department against another, it should be a team effort as a store , not a personal competition
