    I have been working at Orchard Supply Hardware part-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great staff to work with at my store. Great customers for the most part. Customers at my store are the most important thing, without them we would be out of business. Open communication from the top down. Willingness to give ideas a chance to see if they will work.

    Cons

    Staffing levels can be stretched during the week. Need better stock crew, one that will place merchandise in its home. Pay for most positions on the low side. Current unrest by the customers and some staff due to media reports of closures. But senior management need to make the media responsible for reporting the truth as written in press releases.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the open communications about current company events. Do promotions from within instead of hiring outsiders that have exaggerated their experience. Promote those that work hard and show initiative.


  7. Teamwork and structure support makes a great company

    Pros

    OSH attracts lots of the older working folk, i.e. retired electricians, plumbers, lumbermen, etc to its ranks. Makes it a great place to learn from your co-workers about the basic tasks of home repair.

    Cons

    Like any other minimum-wage job, you don't get paid that much. And you have to deal with bad management more often then not. Overordering, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the older folk around. Seriously, they are the heart of OSH's reputation. They may work a little slower, but they can teach the young guys all there is to know about a given subject.
