Pros
  • Employee discount is pretty nice (in 40 reviews)

  • great discount if you have kids (in 24 reviews)

Cons
  • My advice to anyone that was looking for a job would be to run very far away from TCP until all the upper management changes (in 58 reviews)

  • This company needs to get their act together, Floor sets are simple and well explained but the updates to the sets are overwhelming (in 33 reviews)

    30% discount which is pretty awesome. Fun environment, great people to work with.

    Low pay, low hours, to much to do with no direction or time, upper management doesn't care about the associates or leads,

    Need to give good hours to get stuff done, give a good pay so people will actually stay, and have good direction when it comes to floor sets

    Pros

    Always something new to do. Keeps you busy and is fairly easy to keep up with. Friendly workers and managers

    Cons

    Minimum wage for a job that requires a lot of work. I could get more at a fast food place.

    Pros

    Coworkers are extremely friendly. Store Management team is extremely fair with scheduling and very accommodating and flexible. Offers great employee discount.

    Cons

    Corporate management team is extremely micromanaging. Training program is extremely unorganized and confusing. Corporate does not seem to value employees.

    Advice to Management

    Trust your store employees more. Do not place so much responsibility on store management. All the paperwork management needs to complete does not allow them to take time to train employees or help customers.
