    Pros

    Nice place to work on a District / Regional level. I enjoy my coworkers and the hours are to my liking for my position.

    Cons

    I would be wary of working at the store level. Medical benefits are no better or worse than you would find in most other companies. Vacation time allotment is poor.

    Advice to Management

    The company preaches life work balance but I have yet to see it happen.

    Pros

    Management experience in retail, if you don't have any and looking to learn to move forward in the world of management.

    Cons

    Not enough training, expected to do too much while other employees slack off and do nothing.

    Advice to Management

    District Management should talk to Cashiers/ Supervisors/ Assistant Managers before they provide an annual review to the Store Manager.

    Pros

    Tim Bray is probably the best manager you will ever have. He is patient, has a sense of humor, understanding, competent, hard working, kind, honest, easy going, and just an all around a nice guy! He's not a boisterous, overbearing manager, but has an introverted and calm management style that doesn't micro-manage. It's a very positive environment with positive coworkers.

    Cons

    As a sales associate don't expect full time here and opportunities for advancement aren't promising. The job is very monotonous and boring, but coworkers, Tim, and the customers make it bearable!

    Advice to Management

    Make sure every sales associate gets the same amount of hours!
