    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

    Offers fairly good pay, typical holidays and early release days before holidays. Decent vacation and sick time policy.

    Cons

    Most of the directors and above are very micromanaging and do not appreciate or consider new ideas. Workload management and work/life balance is a joke. Upper management expectations are unattainably high. Bullying is an accepted form of management.

    Advice to Management

    Trust the people you hire to do their jobs. Be up front about what the job responsibilities are during the interview process. Be respectful of people's personal time. Stop tolerating bullies.

    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

    Supportive coworkers Generally pleasant customers Easy to catch on and complete tasks Ability to pick up more shifts as desired

    Cons

    Inconsistent scheduling - oftentimes I would be scheduled for many hours one week and then virtually no hours the next. Also I would get called to pick up a shift a lot because a coworker called off Salary - starts out at minimum wage for a lot of positions (not surprising, however)
