  1.  

    Pros

    The starting pay was good and at this point, I get three weeks paid vacation. Working with the public is something that I like, so that is a good point for me. Company standards are high and the quality of working conditions is very good.

    Cons

    The benefits offered by an independent store are not the best in the industry. Raises are very hard to come by, even though they tell you that they think you deserve one.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Being what is basically an assistant manager, I do not feel that it is my place to offer advice to upper management, however, I will say that employee appreciation is very important and should be expressed at every deserving opportunity!

    Pros

    GREAT associates to work with. Employees are very loyal to the company and work hard. Good oppertunities to advance for some people.

    Cons

    Upper management not quite as loyal to company as they are to themselves.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Company was built on "family values". Seems that after upper management got their buyout their not as loyal as they would like people to think.

    A great work environment ,the culture of the company in retail creates a place that is actually fun to work in.

    We could be more competitive in compensation for key positions in the stores.

    With all the tough decisions that had to be made over the last four years. We can be proud that our leadership stayed focused on what really matters in a company like ours. (The people)
