    The real answer

    Specialty Sales Associate (Current Employee) Orland Park, IL

    ProsIn a very tough economy, adults have to get jobs of any kind to meet their responsibilities. This fact has not escaped the managers. They treat all those beneath them as idiots and losers. Because they know that they can get away with such actions with so many of us tied to our jobs due to a poor economy. There is also no worse place where you will see the blame game going on as each and every manager points to some anonymous person above them foe any negative.

    ConsThe pay is terribly low. There is absolutely no respect given to any person below the A.S.M. level. Get a pat on the back on a Monday and completely Tossed under the bus by Tuesday. Ther V.P.s have no concept of of the show put on for them to make the lower mgmt. levels look good.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMake your "Walks" without prior notice. When things are scheduled, the stores spend two days doing nothing but hiding the bad from eyesight. IT IS A TOTAL FACADE.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
