    Pros

    nice people, nice part-time hours.

    Cons

    Too many chiefs and no Indians. Everyone wants to give direction, and most times they are in conflict.

    Advice to Management

    It would work better if one person was the one who is in charge on a daily basis.

  2. a decent job

    Pros

    Flexible hours, usually able to pick up extra shifts, great products in the store and usually happy customers (aka excited to find a deal), super casual dress code compared to other retail dress codes I have had to adhere to.

    Cons

    Only 10% discount (which is understandable but still), fairly repetative work, low associate morale (could be the town I was in tho)

    Advice to Management

    My particular store was a bit disorganized when it came to training me and I noticed lack of training in other associates as well. We didn't have a designated person at our location to handle training (as in, it fell on the asst. store manager but I don't believe that was even part of his job description). They just had me shadow another coordinator and a few weeks later gave me some paperwork (but it wasn't even an employee handbook) They didn't have a training register or anything like that. Poor communication amongst the store managers at my location, would usually hear associates giving out incorrect info, I would correct when I could but sometimes I would be too busy to at the time it happened. But everyone got along really well - no real drama.

  3. Good company, forgets that people make the company

    To many changes recently in upper management and change of directions every day.

    Pros

    The upper management really cares for the employees. They do a lot especially at the holidays. The schedule is very flexible, and they post it 2 weeks ahead of time. They have a great open door policy that lets me express my ideas. Training is pretty good.

    Cons

    Not enough hours at certain times of the year. Pay could be better, but is not the worst. Customers are sometimes mean.

  11. Great people but, lack the "family" business aspect

    Pros

    People were great. Promoted 3 times within one year. Great benefits

    Cons

    work-life balance. Ask for too much for too little pay.

    Advice to Management

    This being a family business, I would think that you would be more open for people needing open availability due to emergencies.
