    Pros

    Flexibility with scheduling, the employees I work with are very friendly (with a few exceptions).

    Cons

    Small raises are given throughout large intervals. There always seems to be a "lack of payroll." Communication is hardly existent. Favoritism plays a huge factor in your position and level of respect. It seems the only way to get ahead is to be a brown-noser.

    Advice to Management

    I would advise to treat each associate with the same level of respect, and to communicate with everyone, as opposed to just the people you like.

    Pros

    No dress code. you Get to use creativity to rearrange your department's features. Customers for the most part are friendly.

    Cons

    The managers were always rude and disrespectul. Co-workers have no respect for each other. The work environment is self-damaging and i ended up in tears mid-shift many times. Hard for your true personality to come through because the managers always put your good mood down at the beginning of the shift. The open door policy is a joke. Very low pay for the expectations of the employees. Lack of communication between the managers They constantly messed up the schedule and scheduled shifts against availability. Posts schedules late. The managers clearly favor some employees over others and they end up with all the hours. Hard expectations to meet each shift. Time and effort into a project/department is never appreciated.

    Pros

    Associate discount 10% and sometimes 20%

    Cons

    Instead of giving hours they hire more people. The Average weekly hours is like 10-15 hours. The pay sucks You are not appreciated Bad communication between managers A lot of associates are calling out so you have to do their job as well The store manager has no respect for their employees You get yelled at a lot because they don't give enough training when they hire you. You have to do everything in the store.

    Pros

    Love working with the public

    Cons

    Total lack of communication, training, respect and concern for it's employees. Management plays favorites with it's employees. Some management spend a lot of time "chatting" with "favorite" employees. the managers/assistant managers are too stressed. They only point out your flaws and mistakes. RARELY acknowledge good performance. Constantly want you asking customers to give more money, Cr cards (understandable) and donations for charities at same time. Major lack of training. Seems they talk over you, and treat you as "less than".

    Pros

    Management will work with your availability Most customers are friendly as they are ready to check out

    Cons

    Management takes advantage of employees Management are rude and abusive Customers can be extremely abusive Don't ask for a raise...you will not get it. Employees don't call in, THEY JUST DON'T SHOW UP.

    Advice to Management

    Treat staff as you want to be treated Hire more employees and stop taking advantage of the minimal employees you already have Review more often and give us a few cents more an hour.

    Pros

    -weekly pay -hours are usually 4 to 5 hours -friendly coworkers -easy job

    Cons

    -lots of coworkers are lazy or don't show respect. -not flexible hours, you end up closing all the time, i mean all the time. -asking for credit card app annoys the customer. nobody wants to apply since everyone has bad credit in this econmy to begin with. -management doesn;t treat you fairly or recognize the work you put in the area they put you in to work.

    Advice to Management

    please wake up and smell the roses! get a decent payroll and more hours. how else are we suppose to keep up?

    Pros

    Nice and friendly workers (excludes managers and supervisors) Nice clothing comes in every once in a while You get to meet some cool people

    Cons

    Horrible pay for the hard work you put in Raises SUCK and promotions are VERY RARE older workers always have attitudes and complain TOO MUCH

    Advice to Management

    Fire the store manager, assistant store manager, and a couple supervisors and start fresh. You will see the positive outcome. Change your attitudes and communicate better with employees.
