    Pros

    They listen to stores and make changes to try and make things better

    Cons

    They don't seem to know what they're doing. They have a "throw it against the wall and see what sticks? mentality to their marketing. EVERYTHING is determined by how many instant credits your store opens and what your conversion is every hour of every day. Micromanaged to death.

    Advice to Management

    Make a decision and stick with it.

    Pros

    Great manager and nice coworkers.

    Cons

    Minimum wage pay and weekend hours.

    Advice to Management

    Continue giving individual stores the freedom to customize their store layout as each store is different and knows what sells

    Pros

    Great atmosphere and team to work with. Fun working with customers and building the sale.

    Cons

    Not many positions open for full-time sales associate. Not great pay to live on.

    Keep training the associates. Make sure the management follows the same guidelines and policies of conduct and uniform as the associates have too.

    Pros

    Fun environment where the people truly care about you. 25 percent discount really comes in handy.

    Cons

    Barely above minimum wage salary. Lots of people come and go because they find the job boring or just are not motivated enough by the same tasks over and over.

    Advice to Management

    Offer better compensation and benefits to part time workers. Increase salary for those who have worked more than one year.

    Pros

    Awesome products, you can be creative with your customers and help them create a dream living space.

    Cons

    This is not a con, this job is very physical, must be able to move heavy objects.

    Advice to Management

    Corporate needs to know how much people in the stores love their job. They dedicate hard hours to make it a beautiful and inspiring place to visit.

    Pros

    Easy environment
    Cool products
    4-6 hour shifts. It's unusual but a 4 hour shift at this store is like an 8 hour one at another store.

    Cons

    There are sales goals for the overall store each day but not really for the individual associate. You will come in and get placed in a section ask told to "fix it" and "maintain" your section with not much direction.
    It can get really boring when the store is slow.
    Some customers think you are their personal shopper, avoid that.
    They want you to open store credit cards and push that on the employees but the employees but their are no incentives or reward for employees.

    Advice to Management

    Need to be more structured and on the same page. Give your associates more detailed tasks. And the store manager needs to be more active and set an example rather than just ordering people around from your office.


  9. Credit card

    Pros

    The company has great benefits, most stores have a fun atmosphere.

    Cons

    Most managers in store and in corporate don't honor their word, they come up with excuses instead of using honesty, hours arent honored for full time. They tell you there are loads of opportunities but there really arent.
