    Pros

    Great customers. Most are relatively nice and quick. Work isn't that hard, just a lot of it. Don't ever have to stay over.

    Cons

    Some customers require 30minutes - hours of attention and need many details.

    Advice to Management

    Advance more readily instead of holding back.

    Pros

    Was a MTP (manager training position) and then placed as an assistant sales manager in a fairly large store. The pay is good if you are in management, the benefits are great, and even a little bit of paid vacation.

    Cons

    The store is successful if you have a driven, hard nosed store manager. If you have a store manager that lets employees get away with mistakes and doesn't help develop them, the store will suffer.

    The hours aren't glorious, required to work 44 as an assistant and you will work saturdays and sundays if your store is short staffed.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure your store managers are dedicated and determined to run a store. I wasn't fortunate to have that experience, and it led to me seeking a new employer.

    Pros

    The benefits are pretty good, all things considered. I had to call the corporate office for questions about benefits and they were always helpful.

    Cons

    Well. It's not a bad job. It changed from the time I was there from the time I left but it really was an old boys club so far as management was concerned. If upper management liked you it was all good. If not, well ... good luck.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to improve on treating your employees like they have lives outside work.

    Pros

    Great benefits, usually move quickly up the company, decent starting pay, hours aren't too demanding.

    Cons

    LOTS of politics involved in potential promotions; Hopefully you speak Spanish if you want access to all/better in-store positions! I was passed over three promotions because I only speak English.

    Advice to Management

    Stop with the reverse affirmative action would be a good start. I wouldn't be looking for a new job if I hadn't been undeservedly blackballed because of my lack of Spanish skills.
