    Pros

    Great company to work for and one that really values their employees and the community.

    Cons

    None that come to mind. Every company will have some cons, but nothing outside of the norm for a company of this size.

    Pros

    If you get on the right team and in the right department, it's so much fun.

    Cons

    Sometimes the work/life balance isn't so balanced.

    Advice to Management

    If one wants to move up, sometimes there's a block due to outsourced employees with work visas that are getting paid less than US employees. This practice is hindering job growth for US employees.

    Pros

    Great compensation, Customer Service based environment, freedom to "be the change" and make the change.

    Cons

    fast paced, changes on a dime, high expectations, type A driven atmosphere

    Advice to Management

    Do your best to squash the politics and don't perpetuate it. Out with the old and in with the new does not lead to stability. Some old is still needed.

    Pros

    Dental and vision insurance, discount stock purchasing, overall great benefits and for part-time! Coworkers at my store are what make it so fun, great relationships

    Cons

    management is absolutely terrible, they want you to do a ton of work for really awful pay (better than min wage but still), and you only get to grow as a person if you kiss up to management

    Advice to Management

    care about your employees, don't set ridiculous and unachievable goals for people who have no control over their success (because of customers), and figure out how to give medical insurance back to part-time workers!

    Pros

    Pay is better than minimum wage and you get paid vacation and sick time even as part time

    Cons

    Doesn't make sense to have better than minimum wage pay if pt is barely getting hours. Management should actually start gettung reviews from associates before they just put someone as supervisor

    Pros

    Love the job...currently 7 months in and seeking a promotion
    Family oriented
    Welcoming
    Work very closely with Corp, so it's easy to rub elbows for better positions/promotions.

    Cons

    Starting as a Customer Service Rep for YOW has its ups and downs
    1. Call volume in Spring is crazy!
    2. Too many females lots of gossip an drama
    3. WORKFORCE
    4. They make us compete for schedule if you are just a normal call center rep
    5. Insurance is VERY Expensive!

    Advice to Management

    Not everyone should be a Supervisor/team lead, if they are going to gossip and run around the floor spreading malicious slander about various people (especially these nice people that you are bullying).

    If you are in leadership...LEAD YOUR FLOCK
    If you are in leadership, don't have attitude if someone ask you a question "IT'S YOUR JOB," especially if your just playing around every single day.

    Pros

    Part time is an option

    Cons

    Poor management of staff. Hours are all over the clock. 4 hour minimum shift sometimes.

    Advice to Management

    Supervise the performance of sales associates better and address slackers.
