    Pros

    Flexible work schedule, minimum Holiday's worked, vacation through Christmas season as well as summer

    Cons

    Company is growing large fast, which is good for the consumer! In the process they have lost the sense of " family" with the employees, no longer treated as valuable assets now we are just " expendable "

    Advice to Management

    Take some time to see the stores without notice, take a look at the "real store". Visit an off site storage. Then consider for a moment that the management staff is knowledgeable and hard working, the associates too. Now, find the root cause without blaming the store team, the district, and the regional. Find a solution without threats and terminations, these are just Band-Aids. Find the real problems and then we can find real solutions , lasting solutions and a better future for everyone. Invest in and support your most valuable assets, your employees, then watch how they support and invest in you.

    Pros

    Blowing up and making balloon bouquets is fun

    Cons

    The pay is very little. There is a chance to be promoted, yet no room for making much more money than you already are. Hours are crappy except for during Halloween time. Not very good to employees, except to managers.

    Advice to Management

    HELP OUT MORE! JUST BECAUSE YOUR "THE BOSS" DOESN'T MEAN YOU CAN'T GET ON A REGISTER OR HELP CUSTOMERS!
