    I worked at Old Time Pottery part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Some of the people you work with are awesome! The manager was willing to work with my school schedule. He was awesome for that!! There were some pretty girls that walked in every once in a while.

    Cons

    Some of the people you work with are out to get you. I got written up for some nonsense. I was supposed to get a raise after my first year and they tried to play me.

    Advice to Management

    I haven't worked there in several years, but the layout was awful. It has been revamped since I worked there, but I don't know if it helps in terms of the customers finding what they need and the associates being able to find the products.

    Pros

    Always somthing new to stock and sell to customers. Managers help with all work expected of regular employees.

    Cons

    Company is set in it's ways even if their ways do'nt push the company ahead. Very little room for advancement because it is still a small company with not a lot of stores.

    Pros

    None company is terrible and sucks

    Cons

    Company does not care about employees, they care more about the dollar then trying to save someone's job. A company that makes 1000s of dollars can't look past a mistake that humans make. Big shot corporate people act like their perfect but they are not, change your policies that suck

    Advice to Management

    Stick up for your employees they do all the work and you get the credit

    Pros

    they give you a pay check

    Cons

    write up for being one minute late, including loss of holiday pay. arbitrary scheduling...some times no notice of a change in schedule. massive employee turnover. i heard scott sold the company so things might improve...if you can FIND OTHER EMPLOYMENT

    Advice to Management

    show respect to your employees, you pay them because you owe them, not the other way around
