    Pros

    The best reason would be that the time you get off of work depends on what you do.

    Cons

    A con would be that you have to work at a certain speed. You will get fired if your production rate is not where it needs to be.

    Advice to Management

    My advice would be to give the employers a bit of slack because the inventory that we had to carry was heavy. For you to expect someone to lift those heavy boxes and move fast it is impposinke if you're a woman.

    Pros

    A great place to work that teaches you a number of good qualities including good customer skills, inventory and shipping experience, and operation of certain tools and machines that most employers would rather you have had experience with.

    Cons

    At the location that I had worked at, there were no cons. It was an exceptionally great place to work just starting out in life.

    Pros

    Just the co-workers only and that's it

    Cons

    infested with rats, rat feces and urine, hard work for less pay. There is a incentive pay in place, but it's hard to reach due to the production rate.

    Advice to Management

    ask every single employee what problem needs to be resolved and take it to heart

    I worked at True Value full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, decent compensation, good time off

    Cons

    Poor working conditions, that slowly got better. When short staffed hours get very long.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and do not get rid of the management that did. You have employees that have been in the trenches for years listen to how they can recommend things to get better.
