    Pros

    Interaction with your regular customers. MYshare bonus 3 times a year. The relationships you gain. Store manager was very understandable and reasonable.

    Cons

    Provides favoritism at its best. If you like brown nosing you will go far in the company. Pay rates, raises and grading scale. Management likes to talk about you behind your back.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the favoritism and talking behind employees backs

    Pros

    Discount, able to get allot of hours, can get days off that you need without having to deal with management. Able to buy stock. They let you get a Sams club member card with paying all up front, you can also use your discount at Sams club.

    Cons

    Attitudes of upper management, lack of gratitude from management, unrealistic attendance policy. Management only did work when corporate came to inspect. The environment is allot like being high school.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees a little better.

    Pros

    it paid the bills.... barely

    Cons

    lots of drama, favoritism and backstabbing even from managers. lots of hard labor and stress. the customers you have to deal with are very disrespectful and rude. it is not worth it! the managers dont care about the employees and if you get sick and miss work, a doctors note wont help even if it is an emergency. coworkers are quick to throw your name under the bus too to make themselves look good to management. there is nothing good to say about this place!

    Advice to Management

    be more fair to your employees and stop giving special treatment to you favorites!

    Pros

    My store's management team is outstanding, and the training plan defined by the company is very thorough. Also, the opportunity to advance is amazing.

    Cons

    Wages at lower levels are definitely not enough to live on, even when working full time. Other than that, no complaints.

    Pros

    Decent pay for what I did, potential benefits are ok, fairly flexible when setting up initial schedule

    Cons

    Lead was lazy, manager above him didn't care to do anything about it, so I picked up the slack.
    I don't much care for the feel of a giant corporation and the high turnover/low satisfaction that can come with it.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to lower level employees

  10. Not the company it once was, but still a option to those who need work

    Pros

    Solid, growing Company. Very good job security in a troubled economy. Provides several options for benefits to help match your needs

    Cons

    Terrible scheduling, good luck getting two days off in a row; high pressure work load with low pay, high pressure on the associates that perform while letting under performing associates slide.

    Advice to Management

    have your assistant push under performing associates to pick it up instead of continually riding the over performing associates to pick up the slack. Stocking should not be a super high pressure job. You are losing good employees due to this tactic.

  11. Good pay, bad job security
