    Pros

    This was your typical retail job which means both early/late hours and holidays. I was a student working 2 other jobs while at WD, and my manager was very good about working around my schedule for my shifts. Also, I felt very respected as an employee from all of management. I received 2 raises while working there for almost a year and a half, and their pay is competitive.

    Cons

    Long hours on your feet, disrespect from customers.

    Pros

    Paycheck Every Week and good salary if you get good hours.

    Cons

    The company went through Changes and job Security is gone. They closed the store I used to work at with a month notice.

    Working Hours Sucks. The schedule is not stable and company loves to cut hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please give us more stable schedules and do not tell me to leave before my time has come because work is slow.

    Pros

    They people are good to work with. Very helpful when you have questions. Their hours are very flexible and can work with you if you need time off.

    Cons

    The discounts are very low along with the pay. They start you out as part time as there are no benefits and growth is slow. They will always tell you they will work with you with a smile but can only do so much as this is a part time work offer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your workers and help them to exceed in the work place. Offer more benefits to your part time help and add vending machines in the break room so they are not walking around the store and having to waste time in the check out counters.

    Pros

    I've met a lot of great customers and some really great coworkers. Fast paced environment. Always work to be done.

    Our store is very understaffed. If someone calls in it messes up everybody else's schedule. Hard to keep good workers
